    Default Differences In Foreign Policy Marco Rubio and Rand Paul

    From today's New York Times on-line.


    Taken together, these freshmen senators are a case study in how the conservative movement remains split over how best to employ America’s power in the world.
    Both are grappling with how to reconcile the aggressiveness of the neoconservatives, the fervor of the evangelicals, the warnings of overextension by fiscal conservatives and the efforts by traditional Republican “realists” to impose a more pragmatic, less ideological lens onto the party’s approach. And with seats on the Foreign Relations Committee alongside advocates of assertive American foreign policy like Senator John McCain of Arizona, they have a platform to air their views, as they did this week in hearings on the security failures that led to the deaths of Americans at the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, and on the nomination of Senator John Kerry to be secretary of state.

    "All those things bother me: The populism, the lying and the scapegoating and the xenophobia bother me, but then there’s a layer of incompetence here. I suppose, in a way, we should be thankful: If he had a coherent ideology, he’d probably be more dangerous." P J O'Rourke
