Rep. King (R-NY): Rand's NSA Position 'Madness'

Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) slashed into Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) for Paul’s support of NSA leaker Edward Snowden. “When you have Rand Paul actually comparing Snowden to Martin Luther King or Henry David Thoreau, this is madness,” King said. “This is the anti-war Democrats in the 1960s that destroyed their party for almost 15 years. I don’t want that happening to our party.”

King continued by saying that Paul represented a strong strand of isolationism that cut against the Eisenhower, Reagan and Bush models on foreign policy. “I thought it was absolutely disgraceful that so many Republicans voted to defund the NSA program, which has done so much to protect our country,” he added. “I mean we are a party of national defense. We’re a party who did so much to protect the country over the last 12 years.”
