Santorum Slams Rand Paul For Advocating ‘Obama’s Failed Isolationism’

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum on Thursday sharply criticized fellow Republican Rand Paul, accusing him of advocating a foreign policy similar to “Obama’s failed isolationism.”

In his tweet criticizing Paul, Santorum linked to Paul’s Wall Street Journal op-ed, “How U.S. Interventionists Abetted the Rise of ISIS,” published in Thursday’s paper.

Paul, a potential Republican candidate for president, has taken criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike.

Santorum, who ran for president in 2012, is considering a run again for president in 2016.

Frothy`s back I was hoping he got flushed with Mr.Hankie.

I guess the shit never stops.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.

The people poll differently. Sanitorium wants to be the country's Christian mullah.
If he were born in the Middle-East, he would certainly be the garbage he wants to pick a fight with now.

LoL! Oh Frothy....

you're foaming at the.....mouth too much.

Amazing that anyone takes this guy seriously.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Obama? Isolationist?

Here's yer sign, Rick.

WHAT ?

President Obama is a isolationist ???

Frothy the GOP Henchman.

He will never win the nomination, he will probably never win another election. Frothy's sole purpose in the GOP is to launch these attacks on the enemies of the establishment. He is just the right amount of big mouth, sharp tongue and tarnished image to do the dirty work the other "candidates" won't.

Or maybe he is just a frothy dick.

hahaha "FrothY"

So funny to me....every time.

"Mmmmmm FROTHY!" ahhhahahahahaha damnit I can't stop now.

Louis Freeh involved in car wreck...

"State police said an investigation revealed that Freeh was headed south on Vermont 12 in his 2010 GMC Yukon when he drove off the east side of the road. The vehicle struck a mailbox and a row of shrubs, then came to rest against the side of a tree, police said."

http://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/story/news/local/vermont/...

Take note of the picture of the vehicle.

"We have no opinion at the moment on the one-car-wreck that left former FBI director Louis Freeh badly injured around noon on August 25, other than to note some curious facts: the police were hours late informing the office of the governor of Vermont; Freeh was flown by helicopter to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital in New Hampshire under armed guard, and has remained under armed guard; the hospital has refused to confirm that he is a patient, even after reports of two surgeries; at least for the first few days no one has answered the phones at his company, Freeh Group International."

Thats a perfect

Rand Paul slogan would of been great for Ron as well.

It's a pretty damn good sign that you're right!

Frothy should buy plane

Frothy should buy plane tickets for himself and his teenage kids and they can go over to Syria and start fighting.

Amen to that.

That fricken war-hawk shoots off his mouth faster than Gingrich....which I thought was impossible for the longest time.

Let HIM and HIS FAMILY fight the wars that POLITICIANS start.

Leave it to the stupid GOP to run this bastard again.

He's a war-mongering, Arab-hating stooge to the military-banking-industrial complex.

Rand will make mince-meat out of him.

You forgot...

Obomba Isolatioist?

But..but...but what about Libya? Syria, Africa, Pakistan, Ukraine, The Asian pivot, Missiles in Poland? expanding NATO deeper into western Europe?

Isolationism?

Rand is definitely taking flak from both the red team and the blue team...that means he is definitely over the target.

Let Him at 'Em

Give Ricky a water pistol and GI Joe dog tags and drop him in the middle of a group of ISIS militants.

Then he'll pray for isolationism.

I know

Santorum supporters who are now Rand supporters.

Rick still is mad.

After getting his ass handed to him by Doctor Paul. In the debates. Ron's son will kick Ricks ass. The lord always trips up bad Catholics. Teddy Kennedy. Pelosi an little Ricky.

Payback for pops

You know Rand is chomping at the bit to rip righteous ricky a new one. I would LOVE to watch it.

Rand has drifted a bit too

Rand has drifted a bit too much to the left when it comes to his biggest obstacle....getting over the, 'isolationist foreign policy,' image his father was accused of.

Rand can play politics all day long, but if he doesn't give the Republican Party the red meat they want, he may as well be a democrat.

The same strategy Ron Paul used twice is not going to win the republican nomination in 2016.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Not sure what you mean by "he

Not sure what you mean by "he may as well be a democrat." Rand Paul may not be as pure a libertarian as Ron is but he is still a libertarian. Americans are tired of war, nobody wanted to go to war with Syria unless you were an establishment politician. In my opinion Rand Paul's isolationist foreign policy will do far better than all the war hawks that will run in 2016. More and more Americans are not believing the establishment bullshit anymore.

i think he meant that if he

i think he meant that if he doesnt "feed the base" then in there eyes he "isnt one of them" so he might as well be a democrat as far as someone theyd consider voting for. but i agree hes off. if he believes in a defensive only strategy, a constitutional foreign policy, then he needs to stick by it. to hell with the republican base and their hypocritical views on what constitutionality is. after all, theyll vote santorum if he becomes the nominee and thats not a faction of people id want to be associated with anyways.

egapele's picture

I disagree

He is drawing a clear line smack down the middle of the Republican party and is doing a great job of showing America how the interventionists like Cheney and Rumsfeld are just as extreme as Hillary.

Wow, he got "isolationism" and "Obama"

within two words of each other. That has to be some kind of wrongness record. What does he win?

Defend Liberty!

Ironic...

Rand Paul could easily retort that it is, in fact, Santorum that advocates Obama's "failed isolationism". This distortion of the term "isolationism" is really getting on my nerves.

That's the media and the statist pundits taunting us

that such an easily refuted distortion persists and your grandpa believes it and you have to be the one to tell him.

Defend Liberty!

Funny you should say that...

I have told my granddad and, once his light bulb turned on, he looked at me like I was a rocket-scientist.

Rick The Idiot

Does he mean Obama's isolationism or Obama's interventionism. Santorum just wanted to intervene more.

Rick Santorum is living in an

Rick Santorum is living in an alternate reality. It really takes a moron to confuse isolationism, which is not even part of Obama's vocabulary lies, with interventionism.

More Santorum

Rick Santorum stumping in Iowa... yeah, he said this:

“Look, I understand why campaigns and all of you want to go out and just bang the president,” he told the crowd gathered in Des Moines. “It’s fun. I mean, it’s fun. It’s easy. It’s getting easier every day.”

Huh..? Freudian slip??
