I don’t mean to step on Walter’s post below, but Rubio’s speech is creating quite the Internet buzz, and I wanted to direct our readers attention to some reactions to it.
Rubio is obnoxiously interventionist. His speech was a caricature of deluded interventionism. In addition to the dozy of a quote Walter gives us below, check out this beauty:
And I disagree with voices in my own party who argue we should not engage at all. Who warn we should heed the words of John Quincy Adams not to go “abroad, in search of monsters to destroy”.
This quote can be found in this interventionist apologia by John Tabin at American Spectator.
Jack Hunter hammers Rubio here.
Pat Buchanan’s biographer discusses the speech here.
Michael Brendan Dougherty calls Rubio out here.
Update: Robert Kagan wrote Rubio’s speech.
