It turns out that Republicans in Washington are united on one issue: their hatred of Rand Paul.The obsession with Paul is striking.The attacks are almost entirely focused on Paul's foreign policy, which is routinely characterized as dangerous and isolationist. In fact, the real problem appears to be that Paul is trying to force Republicans and many Democrats to defend what has become a lazy, smug consensus in favor of an ever-expanding national security state.Paul has taken positions and cited authorities that are deeply unpopular with his own party.Paul has pointed out that since Awlaki was an American citizen, this action creates an extraordinary legal precedent – that the president of the United States can execute an American citizen without trial.I don't agree with Rand Paul on many things, including foreign policy.
