Skip to comments.BREAKING: Rand Paul To Shed Isolationist Image with Speech at National Defense University (VIDEO)
Posted on 08/03/2014 3:36:03 PM PDT by PoloSec
On CNN's Inside Politics, Politicos 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.
Hes going to argue that hes 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.

The dude doesn’t think straight
Wow, it’s going to be messy there while he’s doing all that shedding. Think I’ll skip it.
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.
the dude is lost ..grasping .
If this story is true (which I sorta doubt), our FR Paultards’ heads will be exploding.
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.
Rand Paul is full of BS.
Mission Impossible ping...
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.
DO NOT TRUST RAND PAUL!
Sorry, My Man: I ain’t buying it no matter what you say at this point.
This guy will say anything to get support. I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him.
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.
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.
Ru Paul is an idiot.
I think that horse has already left the barn.
The dude also does not know the burning in America right now.
That issue is Amnesty.
Where is his speech on amnesty?
So are you saying, Rue Paul really COULD be his running mate?
He gives it behind closed doors to the Chamber of Commerce and La Raza.
Rand Slams Congress for Funding Egypt's Generals: 'How Does Your Conscience Feel Now?'Sen. Rand Paul is hammering his fellow senators for keeping billions in financial aid flowing to Egypt's military -- even as Cairo's security forces massacre anti-government activists. [by "anti-government activists" is meant church-burning Christian-murdering jihadists][Posted on 08/15/2013 5:44:10 PM PDT by Hoodat]
Yep - well said.
Rats. That was one of the best things about him.
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.
Go away Paul.....just go away.
