In an interview with the Daily Caller, former Vice President Dick Cheney ripped into Senator Rand Paul and the growing influence of limited government Republicans in the GOP.
“I worry that there is a growing isolationist strain in my own party. The idea if we just turn our backs on that part of the world, bring all the boys home, let them stew in their own juices over there, everything will be fine.”
“But any student of history has to remember not only to what happened to isolationism as a theory in the 1930s, prior to the time we got into World War II,” Cheney said. “It clearly didn’t work then. And now, in the aftermath of 9/11, it’s especially dangerous.”
