Conservatives Lash Out At Rand Paul Over Foreign Policy !!!!!!!!!!

Rand Paul's noninterventionist foreign policy views aren't currying him any favor with conservative pundits, who have recently attacked the Kentucky senator and possible 2016 presidential candidate as naive and immature.

Earlier this month, Mother Jones surfaced a 2009 video of the Republican speaking to a student group at Western Kentucky University prior to announcing his Senate candidacy. In his remarks, Paul alleged that former Vice President Dick Cheney had his own financial gain in mind when he pushed for the Iraq War after 9/11.

"Dick Cheney then goes to work for Halliburton. Makes hundreds of millions of dollars -- their CEO. Next thing you know, he's back in government, it's a good idea to go into Iraq," Paul said.

The charge isn't sitting well with some conservatives.

11 Senate Democrats to Obama: Approve Keystone XL
April 10, 2014

Eleven Senate Democrats, including six who face contested re-election races this year, urged President Barack Obama on Thursday to approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline by the end of May.

The five-year review of the Canada-to-Texas pipeline has been "exhaustive in its time, breadth and scope" and has taken longer than reasonably justified, the senators wrote to the president.

Approval of the pipeline is needed to ensure pipeline operator TransCanada does not miss another construction season, the senators' letter said.

It'll take the big man's signature and I don't think he wants to go down as the president who destroyed the water source that allows the midwest to be the world's bread basket.

Especially when Bush/Cheney already took the lead by opening up previously protected BLM acreage to Big Oil for FRACKING and injecting poisons into our groundwater.....

Democrats worry a lot about global warming --- everybody else, not so much
APRIL 6, 2014

A new Gallup survey shows a stark partisan divide in Americans' beliefs on global warming.

About one-third of the public -- mostly Democrats -- say they worry "a great deal" about global warming, while a much larger number, mostly Republicans and independents, say they worry about warming "only a little" or "not at all" or "a fair amount."
...
There are significant partisan divisions on the warming issue. Gallup found that 56 percent of Democrats say they worry a great deal about global warming, while just 29 percent of independents and 16 percent of Republicans say the same thing.

Twenty-seven percent of Democrats say they worry a fair amount about warming, compared to 19 percent of independents and 22 percent of Republicans.

Finally, 63 percent of Republicans and 51 percent of independents say they worry about warming only a little or not at all, while only 18 percent of Democrats say the same thing.

The costs of the 2003-2010 Iraq War are often contested, as academics and critics have unearthed many hidden costs not represented in official estimates. The most recent major report on these costs come from Brown University in the form of the Costs of War project,[1] which said the total for wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan is at least $3.2-4 trillion.[1] The report disavowed previous estimates of the Iraq War's cost as being under $1 trillion, saying the Department of Defense's direct spending on Iraq totaled at least $757.8 billion, but also highlighting the complementary costs at home, such as interest paid on the funds borrowed to finance the wars and a potential nearly $1 trillion in extra spending to care for veterans returning from combat through 2050.[1] An update in 2013 topped this at US$6 trillion.[2]

Those figures are dramatically higher than typical estimates published just prior to the start of the Iraq War, many of which were based on a shorter term of involvement. For example, in a March 16, 2003 Meet the Press interview of Vice President Dick Cheney, held less than a week before the Iraq War began, host Tim Russert reported that "every analysis said this war itself would cost about $80 billion, recovery of Baghdad, perhaps of Iraq, about $10 billion per year. We should expect as American citizens that this would cost at least $100 billion for a two-year involvement."[3]
