Posted on 03/12/2014 11:03:28 AM PDT by PaulCruz2016
In the midst of the war of words between Senators Rand Paul (R-Ky) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) over who best represents Ronald Reagans foreign policy, the late presidents son Michael Reagan has weighed in on Twitter.
Rand Paul Gets it Reagan wrote Tuesday, Tweeting the link to Pauls Breitbart op-ed, ExclusiveRand Paul: Stop Warping Reagans Foreign Policy.
Reagan is an author, talk host and adopted son of our 40th president.

What do you expect. Its the media. They want to destroy conservatives leading up to 2016, knowing they’re about to get shellacked again this year
When Michael Reagan first saw Sara Palin speak at the PUBBIES
convention his exact quote was “ she is RONALD REAGAN in a skirt” now
that I could agree with I will NEVER forget the first time seeing her I had
goose bumps! I STILL can not believe how this GOOD woman has been
TRASHED by the MSM and DEMS!!!
But he does have the name, so this lifts Paul a notch.
I'm still struggling with Cruz's "Defend our values" nonsense.
Yep. Conservative pundits need to stop feeding the frenzy.
Your Dad was NOT a libertarian!!!!!!
Do you “get” that?!?!
What part of “Defend our values”, do you not understand?
Either you stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything.
Michael Reagan has always done this, everybody gets the column from him that they want.
He even had a Romney article that the romneybots like.
Paul was wrong about Reagan, Reagan was incredibly aggressive, all over the world, things were really high speed under President Reagan and the build up was massive, from weapons systems in Europe and hundreds of thousands of us stationed there, to invasion, to global mercenary operations.
Reagan squeezed the Communists like no one we have ever seen.
Are you going to explain that childish crack, or are you one of these drive by trolls?
I like Michael Reagan and Rand Paul, but I believe Cruz would better because of Paul’s views on foreign policy, illegals and drugs.
I LOVE Sarah Palin. If she ran, I would support her above anyone else, but don’t believe she is running.
What part of Egypt do you not understand? Libya anyone?
The role of the US Government is to defend our INTEREST and promote our values.
We could even discuss Afghanistan in this context.
Bush had that "war" won in the first 90 days. Taliban disposed. Major training camps destroyed.
Yet we're there over a dozen years later "promoting democracy".
How would "our values" dictate our response to the Syrian civil war?
Should we have troops and material in the Central African Republic? Wouldn't that be a good place to defend our values?
Free Republic was founded with honest discussion of ideas and events. Historically, personal attacks are not tolerated.
“Let’s you and him fight”: the ol’ reliable meme.
But you aren’t struggling with Paul’s ‘politicians can’t comment on foreign policy if they haven’t served’ liberal nonsense?
While I haven't heard this comment from Paul, I have to say I think he's fatally flawed as a GOP candidate for several reasons, most notably his support for "permanent residency" for illegals.
I think the rest of us call that amnesty.
So you aren't going to explain that childish crack, and are confirming you are a drive by troll?
I paraphrased. Below is what he actually said.
“What we dont need right now is politicians who have never seen war talking tough for the sake of their political careers.”
First off, although he doesn’t name Cruz, we all know who he was talking about. Secondly, I didn’t take what Cruz said as ‘talking tough’. Finally, the ‘if you’ve never seen war, you can’t talk’ meme is a liberal, hollow tactic. And that’s where I think Paul fails. When push comes to shove, like his father, he will say liberal things like that, essentially using the left’s own retarded diction.
Another thing, there is nothing wrong with being a libertarian. I’m fairly libertarian myself. Don’t hide from it, don’t run from it, don’t try to outconservative someone. Just be honest. Tough thing to ask of a politician, but it works.
Here’s a hint:
The U.S. is capable of exercising it’s foreign policy initiatives with having troops on the ground.
First, the administration has to have a coherrant foreign policy.
That typically doesn’t include using the Muslim Brotherhood as an ally.
American “interests” are NOT best protected by sticking our head in the sand, waiting for problems to land on our shores.
Just propaganda. All the way. Here’s the context, which, BTW, elegantly portrays Cruz’ position in this ‘war of words’ into which Mr. Reagan has, it will turn out, unwisely, decided to foray:
From WABC News (NYC) three days ago, Quote from Ted Cruz:
Im a big fan of Rand Paul. He and I are good friends. But I dont agree with him on foreign policy, Cruz said. I think U.S. leadership is critical in the world. And I agree with him that we should be very reluctant to deploy military force abroad. But I think there is a vital role, just as Ronald Reagan did The United States has a responsibility to defend our values.
