Leave it to Ron Paul to make Obama look like a hawk.
Ron Paul’s irrational foreign policy should bury his candidacy in a post- 9/11 world, yet he’s still popular among many Americans who are sick of our government’s intrusion into the private sector economy and who see his domestic policies as the answers to our troubles, but some even question his soundness in that arena. (the Paul section begins at 4:30 in the video) His constant refrain about the jihadist war being waged on us is, “They’re here because we’re over there.” This tells me that to Ron Paul, no matter what the enemy does to us, including nuking us, we had it coming. We are always to blame according to Ron Paul, and that’s why he can’t even see the killing of Osama bin Laden as a good thing. Besides everything else that this says about him, it’s his absolute indifference to the victims of jihad that condemns him for me. Here’s a very good post on Ron Paul.
