Rand's faults in words

I can understand not liking Rand's lack of verbal purity vs his Dad's but isn't he echoing what Ron Paul said during the campaigns regarding Bush II's "humble foreign policy"? Sure we all know that turned into a sad tale of words vs actions.

However I do see the phrasing as being very clever. It ropes the typical neocon type who longs for "the good ol' days of Dubya. Then it makes them think of their inherent agreement hopefully with a "humble foreign policy".

The difference is that as much as Rand gives me angina sometimes when I wish he would drop some hard core truth to the jugular, I just have to believe he is walking a political tightrope.

Besides who else do we have, in the position he has placed himself? We may be disappointed in the end but I can't believe he would not stick to principles we can rally on vs any of the alternatives.

May future generations look back on our work and say that these were men and women who, in a time of great crisis, stood up to their politicians, the opinion-makers and the establishment. And saved their Country.
