#2 Unless something is outstandingly stupid is going on a candidate usually doesn't know enough about individual situations to open themselves to ridicule for uninformed statements. Those Top Secret briefings are REALLY important.
Unless he has advisers with current high level information it's best to keep his mouth shut.

#3 Probably true ... but the BIGGER problem for both candidates is that this is a new world - and a new America. Under the old rules, the USA could have a mediocre foreign policy and it would still work ... because we were the big kid on the block. Not so anymore, with the western financial system in a shambles. Now our leaders actually need some first-class policies that are actually going to WORK. It's not so easy to find a leader with those sorts of credentials.

#4 R&R are focused on the economy, as are the American people. Permitting Champ to hook them into meaningless, distractions on foreign affairs which move everyone away from the economic focus. Working class people that I know view our current and most recent past foreign policy as a total cock-up. Plenty of time remaining for R&R to explain why we should stay at home and mind our own business for a change.

#5 A strong economy and lower debt ARE foreign policy.

#8 LUCIANNE > 20,000 DEMOCRATS CHEER [critical]ATTACK ON ROMNEY [economic] PATRIOTISM, vee overseas "safe" $$$ assets as opposed to keeping same back home in CONUS + using it to expand or create jobs for ordinary Americans.
* TOPIX > AMERICANS DO NOT WANT OR NEED A PREEMPTIVE STRIKE AGZ IRAN.
Right now the Globalists are failing miserably - spelled M-I-S-E-R-A-B-L-Y - to explain why "Globalism" + OWG-NWO is superior as per Regional, International economics-based interdependency to current State Nationalism, or even benign Extra/Post-Nationalism.
* NORTH AMERICAN UNION BY 2015 OR ASAP SHORTLY THEREAFTER = what NON-WAR/IMPERIALISM-BASED jobs or econ benefits can Mexico andor Canada, etc. provide vee NAFTA to significantly improve or alleviate the currently weak-n-likely-to-stay-weak-or-worse US economy???
