Afghanistan War http://wkms.org en Paul Says GOP Should Tone Down Hawkishness on War http://wkms.org/post/paul-says-gop-should-tone-down-hawkishness-war <p><font size="2">Senator Rand Paul says his party needs to break away from its base when it comes to war.<br><br> In the past, politicians have had a tough time breaking from the base to change party opinion. Think Bill Clinton and welfare reforms.<br><br> But Rand Paul says Republicans need to take a similar step on war, and tone down the hawkishness of recent years.<br><br> “"Well one issue I'’ve sided with President Obama on is that I think the war in Afghanistan should end," says Paul. "There aren'’t many other Republicans saying that, but I think it is time to come home.”"<br> Fri, 05 Oct 2012 19:31:20 +0000 Kenny Colston (KPR) 22911 at http://wkms.org Paul Says GOP Should Tone Down Hawkishness on War
