Guess Which Right Wing Republican is Defending Obama on Iraq?

Post By RelatedRelated Post

When U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) defended President Obama on Meet the Press last week,Rand Paul and Obama some observers thought it was just a fluke. Now, however, Rand Paul has appeared on Sean Hannity’s show to make the case that the situation in Iraq can’t be blamed on President Obama.

“I don’t blame on President Obama” Paul told Meet the Press host David Gregory. Since then, Paul hasn’t changed his tune, making the same point to Sean Hannity this week.

Hannity made the case that by withdrawing from Iraq, Obama left open the door for the Islamic fundamentalist group ISIS to take hold, but Sen. Paul disagreed.

“By leaving the Iraqis hanging like President Obama did, it opened the door where all of these groups could reorganize with any ramifications,” insisted Hannity.

“We shouldn’t always say that it is just our fault, or any one person’s fault over here,” Paul said, adding that Iraqi President Nouri al-Maliki is “the person most culpable” for ostracizing the Sunnis and bringing about this unrest. “Really Maliki deserves a lot of blame,” he explained.

Paul said although some things could have been done differently, it’s not fair to lay blame at the feet of Pres. Obama.

“Could we have stopped this outbreak of ISIS?” Paul asked. “Yeah, but how many troops would it have required? 50-, 100,000?” Paul said it’s the job of the Iraqis to save their country and if they’re not willing to do it, he’s not willing to send his son to die for it.

About a week ago Paul laid blame squarely with the Bush administration.

Questioning those inside the Bush administration who pushed for war, Paul observed, “Were they right in their predictions? Were there weapons of mass destruction there? Was the war won in 2005, when many of those people said it was won?”

  1. Rand is right this time. In fact I have counseled Dick Cheney to clamp his mouth or else one day he is going to spill secrets why he advised President Bush II for war against Iraq the 2nd time. This will land him in prison. Sadam was out of commission other than containing insurgents from the North. Sadam had become powerless.

  2. Rand Paul, trying to get Black votes, don't fall for the BULL.

  3. Rand Paul has come to Obama's defense in other issues as well. I think some of us have allowed ourselves to become too conditioned to think that all republicans think alike and should be completely ignored. That's nonsense. Rand Paul has consistently distanced himself from other republicans on certain issues. I do disagree with Rand Paul on the idea that Al Maliki is to blame for this Iraq crisis. The CIA and Mossad are to blame.

  4. How will a war be won with everyone willing to give up their life even the children for one cause.

    SUCIDE BOMBERS,

    Japanes soldiers only did kamakaze.

  5. You have no idea what you're talking about.

  6. This man has had this position since he entered politics.

  7. I have not always agreed with Rand Paul but I most certainly do this time around and I respect him for telling it like it is although the Foxes in the hen house will not admit it! We should never have sent our sons over there it was not our fight and we all know it was about oil and money for Bush and Cheney. There NEVER was any weapons of mass destruction! We need more young blood in the White House because all these old farts know is war, this is what they were raised up on and they know no difference or they are not willing to change. As Kenny Rogers put it, you have to know when to hold them and know when to fold them and walk away!

  8. Say Whatttttt!!!

  9. Glad to see that at least one Republican is talking like he actually got some sense!!! :*

  10. @Robert Smalls I haven't said anything about his position, I'm talking about what coming out of his mouth which is lies.

  11. If I should say something, then nothing will stop the chatter within
