I’m inclined to take anything Joe Scarborough says with a grain of salt…but still, this one thing bothers me…a lot.
A Morning Joe panel Wednesday morning roundly agreed that Hillary Clinton would be more hawkish on issues like Ukraine and Iran than President Barack Obama and even more hawkish than a potential 2016 Republican presidential nominee.
“Hillary is more hawkish than any of us!” former Mitt Romney foreign policy advisor Dan Senorsaid. “She just compared Putin and the Russians to Nazis.”
“Hillary is the neocon’s neocon” Scarborough said. “It’s going to be fascinating if she decides to run and gets the nomination. She will be more of a saber-rattler, more of a neocon, than probably the Republican nominee. I mean, there’s hardly been a military engagement that Hillary hasn’t been for in the past twenty years.”
“She is a traditional Democrat, who tends to be very tough on foreign policy,” Cokie Roberts said. “We’ve forgotten that in the post-Vietnam era. That was where the Democrat Party always was. And if you’ve got a Republican like Rand Paul, she’ll certainly be more out there on military might.”
“God help us,” Senor said under his breath about the potential of a Paul nomination.
