Fox Guest: Rand Paul Must Prove He’d Nuke a Muslim Country if We Needed

Fox Guest: Rand Paul Must Prove He’d Nuke a Muslim Country if We Needed

On Monday morning, Fox & Friends held a lively debate between Brad and Dallas Woodhouse, the modern (and very much bloodless) political equivalent of Civil War “brother against brother” battles.

Brad is a Democratic consultant and the head of American Bridge PAC; Dallas is a Republican strategist and founder of Carolina Rising. The siblings once reached minor fame when they were interrupted by a phone call from their mother during their dramatic C-SPAN battle.

For their joint Monday morning Fox appearance, the pair debated this very Fox & Friendsian question: “Which GOP contender has the Democrats most afraid?” And when the subject turned to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) — seen by GOP foreign policy hawks as too non-interventionist — here’s what Republican Woodhouse had to say:

[Paul’s] sort of worldview may not be fitting the world as a lot of people see it right now. He’s got to prove — in my opinion, Rand Paul’s got to prove that he will nuke a Muslim country if we have to. I’m not saying we should.

  • There is no next election for Obama. Two terms of four years each is the maximum allowed in the US.
    Even assuming a sufficiently dove-ish or sufficiently intelligent successor, it is Congress, not the president, which has the power to declare war. The president, as Commander in Chief of our armed forces (may God [swt] preserve them) could elect to negotiate a peace treaty before any troops are deployed; but Congress can then impeach him (and anypony else in his cabinet who doesn’t go along with the war).

    There isn’t going to be a war. I’m certain that Obama is not that stupid. I bet he’s going to win the next election by “Lesser of two evils” again. I should hope so.
