Marco Rubio’s Reagan moment?

by Cameron Joseph, The Hill
March 22, 2014

If the Cold War is back, Marco Rubio wants to be Ronald Reagan.

The GOP Florida senator has been laying out his case for a muscular, more interventionist foreign policy for weeks, sounding the alarm about Russia’s incursion into Crimea and criticizing President Obama for his handling of the crisis.

He’s positioned himself as a foreign policy hawk who might stand out from a GOP field that’s increasingly dominated by libertarians like Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) — whose views risk looking overly isolationist amid the Russia crisis.

Russia’s annexation of Crimea has given Rubio, a Senate Foreign Relations Committee member long critical of Obama on national defense issues, opportunities to show off his foreign affairs prowess on a national stage.

His efforts are drawing praise from across the GOP — and new comparisons to Reagan.
