Monday’s Presidential debate—the finale— will be exclusively about foreign policy. Overwhelming advantage Obama.
Romney herein has absolutely NO experience or expertise. He likes to hype his Olympic Games executive chops. But you don’t make decisons about war and peace during track and field. You don’t mobilize and deploy our armed forces for the beach volleyball finals. And you don’t apply economic sanctions on a country whose athletes are exposed for using performance -enhancing drugs.
These are far more profound, complex, and far-reaching calls.
President Obama over the past 4 years has restored America’s standing among the World of Nations. We are no longer perceived as the bully on the block. We sit down and try to reason with friends and enemies alike. Rather than use gunboat diplomacy. Nonetheless, with resolute strength we do not hesitate to declare that all options remain on the table.
Romney’s foreign policy wonks and surrogates are the same gang that brought us preemptive wars. That lied about “weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq. And yellow cake uranium in Africa. The chicken hawks that outted a CIA agent.
More than 2/3 of the Romney foreign policy team are retreads from George W. Bush’s global horror show. Neocons like itchin’-to-fight John Bolton, and Dan Senor who wants to revive those good old Cold War days with Russia. Michael Hayden, and Cofer Black whom Laura Hughes calls “the most vocal advocate for extraordinary renditions and so-called “enhanced interrogation techniques”.
Romney crows about being a job creator. These are the warmongers and saber rattlers he would find jobs for at the Pentagon and among the Joint Chiefs of Staff, on the National Security Council, and for the Foggybottom folks in the State Department. For this reason alone, Romney is not fit to be Commander-in-Chief.
