I have been open in my disgust with the foreign policy of both the Democrats and Republicans. Both parties subscribe to the Wilsonian Progressive notion of spreading Democracy and turning nations into welfare leeches of America. Last night’s debate had me disagreeing with Mitt Romney and Barack Obama equally. Both of their foreign policy ideas are Leftist and are not based on the national interest of America. They both believe the Islamic world can be saved by spending more money and being nice to them. Both Obama and Romney really believe that Muslims want Democracy. The truth is they want a Sharia based system and have an Imperialist agenda. I felt both men are naive and are historically ignorant when it comes to Islam. The majority of Americans are against any more interaction with the savages. But Romney and Obama both live in a Leftist bubble based on feel good academic theories. neither one lives in reality when it comes to foreign policy.
That said, I felt Mitt Romney did what he needed to do in the debate. Whether Conservatives want to hear it or not, the American public have a negative view of the Republican party’s foreign policy. George W. Bush ruined the GOP’s historical advantage in this area. His Wilsonian Progressive nation building project in Iraq turned off the American public to the GOP on foreign policy. Mitt Romney was in a straight jacket situation in last night’s debate because of this image. Romney went out of his way to alleviate the fears the Obama Regime was promoting out there about Romney. Mitt neutralized the image that he’s a clone of George W. Bush by emphasizing peace. Romney assuaged Independents that he is not a nation building ideologue like Bush was. He pivoted to the economy since a strong economy is a national security interest.
Barack Obama last night came looking for a fight. He was frustrated that Romney avoided any confrontation and kept trying to egg him on. The fallen god-king was petty and was more interested in getting zingers in. Romney did not make mistake and came across confident and thoughtful. Romney accomplished his mission, to pass the Commander in Chief test.
The debate can be summed up this way. Barack Obama was a Demagogue and Mitt Romney was Presidential. Americans
