Those sort of people used to be called Trotskyites. Now they are called “possible GOP Veep picks.
That this sort of uber hawkery *still* is the first thing the GOP thinks of, after a decade of disasters brought on by the attempt to End Evil and build the Great Society in such barren soil as Afghanistan and Iraq makes it clear that the GOP, like Bourbons, remembers everything and learns nothing. The Right loves to make fun of the Messianic delusions of the God King. But neocons with their fantastic faith that they can “end evil” are every bit the secular messianic fantasists the Left are.
David Frum, having done the hatchet job and issued bulls of excommunication against conservatives who doubted this utopian project back in 2003 has since ditched the disastrous legacy of the Thing that Used to be Conservatism he did so much to create. But the Thing rumbles on like a robot, blindly parrotting the bellicose utopian rhetoric as Rubio did, eager to get back into power and launch more utopian nation-building wars, as Rubio makes clear.
