Jindal Says Rand Paul is “Unsuited” to Be President

One of Rand Paul’s likely opponents in the Republican presidential primaries says the Kentucky senator is “unsuited to be commander in chief,” Bloomberg News reported.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal made the allegation Wednesday after Paul blamed the GOP’s military “hawks” in Congress for helping ISIS come into being and gain power in the Middle East. The senator pointed out that conservative Republicans have backed arms sales that backfired when ISIS captured the weapons.

“We have men and women in the military who are in the field trying to fight ISIS right now, and Senator Paul is taking the weakest, most liberal Democrat position,” Jindal said in a written statement.

He continued: “We should all be clear that evil and radical Islam are at fault for the rise of ISIS, and people like President Obama and Hillary Clinton exacerbate it. It has become impossible to imagine a President Paul defeating radical Islam.”

Bloomberg News noted that the governor, who plans to announce his presidential candidacy in June, also has criticized Paul for his opposition to reauthorizing the Patriot Act.

“People who argue that the Patriot Act is all bad are being dangerously naïve about the nature of the threats we face here at home,” Jindal said.
