ABC Reporter: But What Does Rand Paul Know About Foreign Policy?
PJ Tatler ^ | 01/23/2013 | Bridget Johnson

Posted on 01/23/2013 10:05:17 AM PST by Rusty0604

An ABC News reporter tried dressing down Rand Paul (R-Ky.) after the senator chided Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during today’s Benghazi hearing. “Curious: What is Rand Paul’s foreign policy background? Did he serve in the military? Did he study, live, do business or charity overseas?” tweeted Terry Moran, co-anchor of ABC’s Nightline. It was Moran’s only tweet of the hearing.

Even Senator Mc Cain ( with prior military and foreign policy expierience ) said that her answers were “unsatisfactory “.

Not bad from a RHINO

The testimony given is just to cover the other “political elites” who also sit on the foreign relations committee.

This is just more kabuki theatre
with more than 4 months of rehersal !

For starters, Rand understood the Turkey connection. Apparently Hillary is a boob or trying to hide its significance.

The jury is out on which it is.

Rand’s experience is a lot more than 0 has, even now. Typical elite.

“ABC Reporter: But What Does Rand Paul Know About Foreign Policy?”

Proof positive that this journalista could not refute what Paul had to say and therefore is using the tried and true leftist maneuver of misdirection, ala Alinsky.

Keep it up Paul, you're over the (ample sized) target.

Gee, this journo-hole could’ve tweeted exactly the same questions about Emperor Barry four years ago.

They’re laying the groundwork early to destroy Rand Paul in 2016.

Projection from a dyed-in-the-wool Libtard stenographer. What is Obama’s foreign policy experience?

Traveling to Pakistan on a foreign visa
Supporting Raila Odinga in Kenya (later burned 800 churches )
Lost the Olympics
Brandenburg gate Kennedy rip off
Bowing to foreign leaders, especially deep to Saudi King
Vacation

FUABC
FUBO

As much as I don’t like John McCain he, Johnson and Rand Paul hit the target. I hope the House builds on those questions. I would have liked to see a second round of questions. It6 was obviously getting uncomfortable for her. She is doing a masterful coverup job so far.

He knows that 4 Americans are dead...and that's all he needs to know.

Of course, ABC can always take this up with Tyrone Woods' father.

So what is Mr. Moran’s foreign policy experience? Did he serve in the military? Did he study, live, do business or charity overseas?

I’ll bet if the Senator was a Democrat, Moran wouldn’t be asking these questions.

Senator Paul KNOWS WHAT ANY THINKING American KNOWS ... WHAT HAPPENED IS DISPICABLE AND it was reported they watched the whole debacle for 7 hours in a situation room ... and did nothing to support the ones fighting for their lives, when there were drones and military near by. God knows their actions and their hearts. We have a responsibility to stand for good and not evil. In Jesus name amen.

Paul has sat in the senate foreign relations committee for years. Terry Moran is an idiot.

I’m sure Moran (Helen Thomas’s erstwhile butt boy) asked the very same questions when Hillary! was going thru her confirmation hearings for SoS.

I suspect Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) knows far, far more than an ABC reporter. ABC reporters typically know as much about the subjects they bloviate upon as they know about the far side of the moon.

What was Hillary’s foreign policy experience before anointed to SOS?

What was Hillary’s experience in options market before she made $100,000 profit in 1 year?

What was Hillary’s experience in real-estate before Whitewater episode?

What difference does Paul's foreign policy experience make? The point here is four people are dead and it doesn't take a genius to realize that you should provide extra security at an embassy in a war zone.

In 1992, Bush41 stated truthfully that then candidate Clinton's foreign policy experenciences went no further than his frequent scarfing at The International House of Pancakes.

What was Obama's? Did Obama do any of that? Did Hillary? What exactly was Hillary's foreign policy background that qualified her for Sec. of State? She and her husband taking illegal Chinese campaign funds?

Yes, there is no doubt in my mind that the MSM transitioned from being “biased” to “vital member of the progressive coalition” in early 2008.

One huge problem is that a lot of our R politicians refuse to acknowledge the fact.

This is my official fatwa on the issue.

It’s such a wrong headed view that you need “experience” in foreign policy. That is essentially our problem. Our diplomats and politicans are so grounded in the sensitivites of the other countries and alliances, that they forget their true mission.

They are supposed to love, understand, and support the American nation and constitution. If you are well-grounded in that, it is almost impossible for a foreigner to cheat you.
The problems occur when worry about offending them by not following their protocol. In a proper foreign policy, an American knowing nothing about nation X should do fine. Treat them with friendship and open honesty. No secret deal behind hidden treaty crap. Let the whole world know we consider them to be a friend. Then nation X needs only to worry about being honest with us. If they are not, then they have lost or friendship.

In the recent wars, we let some nations loudly abuse us verbally, while secretly supporting us. Their meager assistance is not worth the price. If they will not support us openly, they are a snake in the grass.

The Queen of England should be told, “this is an American President” Americans do not bow to, or recognize royal courtly behavior.
A Saudi King should be told, “do not try to walk holding hands with an American president, you might insult him. Americans think you look like a homosexual”.
When you treat someone fairly, and stand by your own principals, you show them TRUE respect. When you grovel and kiss ass, and have woman ambassadors wear a headrag, etc, you are being disrespectful.
You only treat savages that condescending way so you do not frighten or upset that lesser people, who think an eclipse is the moon eating the sun,,etc.

When we used to think and act that way, Americans were respected and largely unmolested around the world.
“Experience” means buying into the elitist new world order crap that America is just one nation, no better than any other.

Rand knows a heck of a lot more than the Democrat butt kissers on that committee.
