In case you missed Sen. Rand Paul’s response to President Obama’s speech Tuesday night on Syria, here it is for your viewing pleasure. I would bet that Rand Paul has calmed some fears regarding his foreign policy philosophy, as it relates to a potential 2016 presidential bid.
In fact, that seemed to be the consensus on Twitter following his speech. As one Twitter user tweeted out:

Another twitter user agrees:
#RandResponds with the dignity of a future president.

Another user underscores how short President Obama has fallen on selling Syria to the American people.

Sen. Rand Paul himself tweeted out a shortened version of his justification for opposing intervention in Syria. It received widespread accolades from both sides of the isle:
I wont vote to send my son, your son, or anyone’s daughter to war unless a compelling American interest is present. #RandResponds
