This Foreign Policy article says it is. It is well worth a read.
I agree. The base of the GOP still holds default interventionist and “strong defense” assumptions. They are a long way from Paul style non-interventionism. But they are less inclined to embrace the neo-conservative idea of America as keeper of world order. There just isn’t an ear for that anymore. Six or seven years have made a big difference. It isn’t 2004 or 2005 anymore, and the hyper-interventionist rhetoric that worked then just doesn’t resonate anymore.
