"The Race for the Presidency" or . . . "It's the Economy, Stupid!"
With unemployment still over eight percent and the economic outlook dismal for all eternity--
This just in: "It's Foreign Policy, Stupid!"
With unemployment falling below eight percent and the economy improving to "waking dead" status after being in the grave,
The race is now about a stiff American spine abroad!
From Benghazi to Baghdad and Cairo to Kabul, the candidates are differentiating themselves in matters military!
Mitt Romney would leave Afghanistan in twenty-fourteen, but stay longer if conditions on the ground demand it.
Barack Obama will beat a "politically-timed retreat" in twenty-fourteen . . . but stay longer if conditions on the ground demand it.
Mitt Romney will hunt down and bring to justice the terrorists who killed our ambassador in Libya!
Whereas Barack Obama will hunt down and bring to justice the terrorists who killed our ambassador in Libya!
Mitt Romney will get tough on Iran and deploy two aircraft carriers to the region,
While Barack Obama has . . . kept two carriers off Iran for the past two years.
Romney would sort out the Syrian opposition and give them the support they need!
Meanwhile . . . (the CIA is currently on the border trying to do just that.)
Mitt Romney would embrace Israel as a partner, eternal ally and soul mate.
Barack Obama embraces Israel with a tender, timeless love (that is slightly more platonic.)
Sure, Barack Obama killed Osama bin Laden . . . but Mitt Romney would do it again with American gusto . . . not merely with "hope" as a strategy.
The Foreign Policy Race is on-- a fight to the finish between the passively weak softie-- and the reckless, crazy nut-job!
Goodnight, and . . . we're stuck!
