BREAKING: Rand Paul To Shed Isolationist Image with Speech at National Defense University (VIDEO)
Economic Policy Journal ^ | August 3 2014 | Jay Stephenson

Posted on 08/03/2014 3:36:03 PM PDT by PoloSec

On CNN's Inside Politics, Politico’s Mike Allen reported on an new effort by Rand Paul to address the current view that he is allegedly an isolationist, reports Political Ticker.

Allen said on the show that Rand is planning a high-profile speech at the National Defense University this fall to address critics, and attempt to reposition himself on the foreign policy spectrum.

“He’s going to argue that he’s smack in the middle - the same place that George H.W. Bush was, that Reagan was, and that Ike was,” said Allen.

There will be a lot of truth in Rand's attempt to cast himself in this light. He is not at all like his father, who is against all US meddling in foreign affairs. George H.W. Bush-like is really where Rand is at.

Don’t trust anything Rand Paul says.

BTW — Reagan was middle of the road? Not likely

Well, he needs some supporters. He sure doesn’t want social conservatives’ support.

If this story is true (which I sorta doubt), our FR Paultards’ heads will be exploding.

Pander we much!

Govern the state of Kentucky for a couple of terms, Rand. Let's see what kind of executive you make.

Hint: You can't sign and veto the same bill.

The thing that he’s doing that irritates me the most is pandering to the low info voters with his felon voting BS.

Its an issue for the individual states to decide and despite his small government rhetoric he wants to nationalize that issue and lie about it while doing so.

I’m a former felon who votes and I support those rights.......in my state.

“He’s going to argue that he’s smack in the middle - the same place that George H.W. Bush was, that Reagan was, and that Ike was,” said Allen.

Wow, he sounds Severely in the middle.

Don't know who he is talking to, but putting GHB and Reagan in the same folder shows he must be thick.

Rand Paul has always had a bit of a used car salesman vibe about him (no offense to used car salesman FReepers) - I just haven’t ever been able to really trust a thing he’s said. Likening himself to Ronaldus Magnus is pretty much a deal-breaker all the way around.

Next.

A good leader doesn’t have to have a special interview or event to EXPLAIN their positions. I am not saying they don’t do interviews or constantly explain their positions. I am saying they don’t need phony damage control interviews. People sort of know where they are coming from, e.g. Reagan, Cruz, etc

A person with core values need only demonstrate those values. Once that is established it should be easy to extend those values to predict the position on just about any issue.

The dude also does not know the burning in America right now.

That issue is Amnesty.

Where is his speech on amnesty?

George H.W. Bush-like is really where Rand is at.

Well. That certainly is a relief to know.

He’s his father’s son, which makes him essentially a freak. I still remember his repeating the claims of Democrats that Vice President Cheney supported the war in Iraq because of his financial interest in the oil industry (i.e., “Halliburton!”).

There were reasons to oppose that war, but anyone who screeches blood-for-oil charges cannot, in my view, be President.
