"The big story in the Republican Party over the last 30 years, and I'm very happy about this," said Kristol, is the "eclipsing" of the George H.W. Bush-James Baker-Brent Scowcroft realists, "an Arabist old-fashioned Republican Party ... very concerned about relations with Arab states that were not friendly with Israel ... ."Most shocking is that Kristol believes that his fellow neocons will hold key war positions in a Romney administration. Buchanan again:
That Bush crowd is yesterday, said Kristol. And not only had the "Arabists" like President Bush been shoved aside by the neocons, the "Pat Buchanan/Ron Paul type" of Republican has been purged.
"At B'nai Jeshurun," writes Weiss, "Kristol admitted to playing a role in expelling members of the Republican Party he does not agree with." These are Republicans you had to "repudiate," said Kristol, people "of whom I disapprove so much that I won't appear with them."
"I've encouraged that they be expelled or not welcomed into the Republican Party. I'd be happy if Ron Paul left.
Another source says Kristol predicted that Sen. Joe Lieberman, whose voting record is closer to Socialist Bernie Sanders' than to conservative Jim DeMint's, will be secretary of state in the Romney administration...Joe led the cheers for our last three Middle East wars – and has pushed for two more, against Syria and Iran.How are Romtarians going to justify a vote for Romney if he plans to put the warmonger Lieberman in as Secretary of State?
