The other day I wrote a column about Republican hypocrisy on Syria, singling out Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz for special criticism. I then heared from Sean Rushton, Cruz's press guy, who wrote in to say that his boss has been consistent on Syria. Rushton wrote:
Senator Cruz's position on Syria has remained consistent. His op-ed in Tuesday's Washington Post reiterated the same point he made on the Senate floor in June: a mission to secure chemical weapons from rebels would be a proper mission to protect U.S. national security. He opposes the current proposed strike because its aim is not to reduce any imminent threat or protect national security, but to enforce international norms.
I could offer a riposte to that, but I won't. I had my say, and now Sean gets his.
