Back in April, Republican columnist for the Washington Post Jennifer Rubin was praising Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) as one of the "problem-solvers and party-builders" for the GOP. What a difference three months makes.
Rubin is singing a different tune in her Tuesday column, wherein she slams him as an inept, isolationist:
He is ... downright dishonest when he throws out lines to veterans like this: “No politician should lead this country who denies our armed services the weapons and technology to defend our great nation.” He is the guy who wants fewer troops and bases overseas and wants substantial cuts in defense. (How? Where?) ...
Paul can say he loves the troops from here to doomsday, but his actions and philosophy dictate policies that would leave us less safe and devote fewer resources to our armed services. A strong-on-defense conservative? Puleez. Who does he think he is fooling?
