“These esoteric, intellectual debates — I want them to come to New Jersey and sit across from the widows and the orphans and have that conversation. And they won’t, because that’s a much tougher conversation to have.”
Makes no sense. Best way to prevent widows and orphans is to keep soldiers away from places they’ll be killed.
I like the line about this strain going through “both parties” – the NSA vote the other day certainly made that clear. Although if that’s “libertarianism”, we need a heck of a lot more of it.
