Scott Horton said it Best

He has to say a bunch of evil Straussian language in front of the war mongers so he can move to the middle in order to amass the power to run for the presidency whilst also trying not to alienate the entirety of his father's base.

In other words, he is a true politician, whereas his father was a statesman.
