If I substituted Obama for Ron Paul in the headline would anyone question it for even a second?
(CNN) – Ron Paul said Tuesday that his rivals have “blown way out of proportion” the Iranian nuclear threat and that their language is “reckless” and “dangerous.”
On the same day as his rivals for the GOP presidential nomination argued their Iran policies would be tougher than those under President Barack Obama, the Texas congressman suggested their rhetoric borders on warmongering, and that his stance is closer to that of Obama.
“He certainly is closer to my position than the other candidates because what the other Republicans are saying is very reckless,” Paul said on an interview to air on CNN’s John King, USA. “There is no evidence whatsoever that the Iranians have or are on the verge of getting a nuclear weapon, according to our own military people, our own CIA, according to the UN.”
