During his transition from Florida governor to likely presidential candidate, Jeb Bush served on the boards or as an adviser to at least 15 companies and nonprofits, a dizzying array of corporate connections that earned him millions of dollars and occasional headaches.
Any time there's a genuine difference of opinion concerning a policy issue within a presidential primary it's worthy of note, even if there's only one candidate standing apart from the others. Rand Paul may be the one you'd expect would dissent from his peers when it comes to foreign policy, but he nevertheless surprised many when he said on Wednesday that it was his own party that bore responsibility for the rise of ISIS.
When asked on Morning Joe how he'd respond to attacks from foreign policy hawks like Lindsey Graham, Paul responded, "ISIS exists and grew stronger because of the hawks in our party who gave arms indiscriminately, and most these arms were snatched up by ISIS." He even tied his Republican colleagues to the despised Hillary Clinton: "ISIS is all over Libya because these same hawks in my party loved Hillary Clinton's war in Libya, they just wanted more of it."
Whatever you think of the particulars of Paul's analysis, his charges probably aren't going to go over too well in a party where the consensus is that everything in Iraq was going swimmingly until Barack Obama came in and mucked it all up.
