Rand Paul: Hillary, Rubio ‘Same Person’ on Foreign Policy

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and his rival Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) are “the same person” on foreign policy.

Paul said of Hillary Clinton, “I see her as a neoconservative. I see her and Rubio as being the same person. They both want a no-fly zone. Both have supported activity in Libya that toppled Gadhafi and intervention that made us less safe. Both supported pouring arms into the Syrian civil war, a mistake that I think allowed ISIS to grow stronger. They both supported the Iraq war. What’s the difference?”

Paul added that a neoconservative “is somebody a lot of times who believes in big government, both domestically and internationally.”

“So many of the big neoconservatives came out of a movement, they were Democrats mostly, some Marxist and socialist,” he continued. “But there were people who ultimately came to believe that we need big government involved internationally as well. So a neoconservative often is a big government person for domestic policy and a big government person for internationalism. And I think Hillary Clinton fits the bill probably better than any. I think she’s also the most likely of all the candidates to get us back involved in another war in the Middle East.”
