John Bolton mulling 2016 bid...

Bolton Plans a Tour of Early-Primary States
By Robert Costa
June 24, 2013 8:07 PM

Watch out, Rand Paul.

As Paul, a Kentucky senator, plans for a 2016 presidential run, he is talking up his views on foreign policy, which, broadly speaking, include less intervention in foreign conflicts and a smaller military budget.

But Paul’s positions and rapid ascent have alarmed many Republican hawks. Behind the scenes, they’re worried that he has a shot at the nomination.

Enter John Bolton. Bolton, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, is being encouraged by several leading conservative power brokers to consider a presidential bid.

Bolton, who briefly considered running for president in 2012, hasn’t made up his mind. But sources tell me that he is moving closer to giving the idea serious consideration — serious enough to travel to Iowa and New Hampshire.

Later this year and throughout 2014, the former Reagan and Bush official will begin an informal national tour. He’ll give speeches, huddle with GOP leaders, and push back against the party’s libertarian shift. He’ll make the case for a muscular foreign policy.

Sources say Bolton is also planning to launch a few related groups that will help elevate his argument and his national profile. Whether the efforts evolve into a presidential campaign in a couple years is unclear, but Bolton is, without a doubt, looking to be a player.

His idea of running for president is charging speaking fees and making organizations pay for his travel, hotels, and meals. He's not a real candidate.

Certainly. Americans are much more concerned about feeding their kids than sending them to fight in Islamic civil wars. Any two ways you slice it, Republicans and Democrats are both tired of these imperial wars that don't make us any safer, and only end up creating more terror. I don't think you give Republicans enough credit, though. They've historically been the party of peace, even if recent times have seen them co-opted by Wilsonian ambitions. But there are clear signs that the party is starting to wipe the sleep from their eyes and seeing what it has become. It helps when they see the Bush foreign policy being carried out by a Democrat and they can see it for what it is.

We all know Rand Paul will win Iowa unless Huckabee runs. Admit it Hoover.

Iowa repubs are a bit schizophrenic. Paul is as far from Huckabee as Ted Kennedy was from Ronald Reagan.

That Paul voters would suddenly vote for Huckabee if he entered the race blows my mind.

Evangelicals are amazingly organized that means a lot in Cacus states. I think Rand Pauls strategy is to assemble the old Reagan coalition. His father had a great ground game. Even got a Paulite elected as Chairman. I'm sure Hoover hates him.
