Romney Takes on Obama in Foreign Policy

Mitt Romney gave a foreign policy speech at Virginia Military Institute.  In desperation,  the Obami had roll Maddy “Mad as Wet Hen’ Albright to respond,  from Wall Street Journal [1]:

The Obama campaign responded to Mitt Romney’s foreign-policy speech Monday by painting Mr. Romney’s stances as vague and naive, and said he didn’t make clear how he would handle multiple global hot spots differently from President Barack Obama.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said on a conference call organized by the Obama campaign said the speech “sounds pretty good but I think it is really full of platitudes and free of substance.”

Polling shows voters give the edge to Mr. Obama on handling of foreign policy, and the president repeatedly trumpets what he sees as his clearest victories: ending the war in Iraq, weakening al Qaeda and ordering the mission that killed Osama bin Laden. On Monday, his campaign voiced little concern with a debate over national security and foreign policy. “Bring it on,” said spokesman Ben LaBolt

The late Usama bin Laden was not the enemy. Rather bin Laden was just one enemy soldier. Merely saying al Qaeda is dead or weakened will not make it so.   Unlike Ambassador Chris Steven, al Qaeda is far from dead.   Unlike VMA-211,  al Qaeda is far from weakened.     In his own private little world, Obama thinks he is winning the war on Man Made Disasters.    In the real world, Obama is still stuck on a golf  course come where.
