Washington, D.C. — Brian Katulis, Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress Action Fund, released the following statement after tonight’s Republican debate highlighted how new rhetoric from GOP candidates cannot overshadow the harmful reality of the impacts of their policies.
Republicans in tonight’s debate were quick to issue many criticisms and myths about the Iran deal and President Barack Obama’s foreign policy agenda, but their rhetoric offered no real alternatives or new ideas. These GOP candidates are some of the weakest on national security in the party’s history. The lack of experience and sensible ideas about what to do in the world is a major shortcoming.
