It’s unanimous — they ALL hate him!
Recognizing the threat, a well-connected former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney convened a conference call last week between [Rand Paul’s Republican primary opponent Trey] Grayson and a group of leading national security conservatives to sound the alarm about Paul.
“On foreign policy, [global war on terror], Gitmo, Afghanistan, Rand Paul is NOT one of us,” Cesar Conda wrote in an e-mail to figures such as Liz Cheney, William Kristol, Robert Kagan, Dan Senor and Marc Thiessen.
There you have it, folks, on excellent authority — Rand Paul is not one of them! And who are they? They are the people who destroyed the country (if they’re all in one place, perhaps we should tell Petraeus). They hijacked the GOP. They delivered the entire governmental machine to a massive majority of radical socialists — whom they now support! In sum, their blind fanaticism has led the country to the brink of ruin, and they cheer it on.
Now, let’s do the Beatles thing and play that routine backwards. Rand Paul will lead the GOP back to constitutional principles. He will reject the radical neocon ideologues. He will oust the socialists and spearhead the effort to rescue the country from the brink of the abyss. He will bring prudential judgment, common sense, and limited government back to the senate. He will de-fund the Fourth International and tell the neocons to raise their own money. He will drain the hot tub (as both party establishments shudder in horror). And he’ll tell the truth (that’s why they’re worried).7:50 am on March 18, 2010 Email Christopher Manion
