The Romney-Ryan Ticket's Foreign ZOT Problem
The Martinez Report ^ | 08/15/12 | Melvin Martinez

Posted on 08/15/2012 3:44:58 PM PDT by Melvin Martinez

For the first time in decades, the Republican team running for the White House has little substantial foreign policy or military experience.

Seizing on the opportunity, President Barack Obama's re-election campaign opened a new front against the GOP ticket on Wednesday, drilling Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan on veterans issues...

Oh please. What Foreign Policy or Executive experience did ZERO have in 2008? This argument is DOA based on the 2008 election results

Yes - Obama has almost four years of failed foreign policy experience (from the American perspective, that is - whereas from Russia’s perspective or Venezuela’s perspective or from Iran’s perspective or from the Muslim Brotherhood’s perspective, Obama’s foreign policy has been a stunning success - America’s enemies love it when there’s a bumbling, incompetent, and weak American President).

"...little substantial foreign policy or military experience..."

This fools (the Kenyan) isn't going there, is he? Or does Plugs' "vast knowledge and understanding of foreign affairs" cover this remark for Team O?

The Kenyan must go.

Yeah, like Zero and Sub-Zero had a lot of experience in those areas in'08. I don't think Obama has improved his military or foreign policy experience in 3+ years.

Obama’s foreign policy:

Bow
Apologize
Surrender
Appease

Wow. How are we going to top that?

Bam-Bam's "military experience" consists of spending 3 years misusing, abusing, degrading, and dismantling the greatest military establishment in the history of mankind.

Biden's "military experience" consists of chewing on tin soldiers ...

What's your military experience, ya jackwagon?

Obama, Biden, and Hillary Clinton have zero foreign policy experience. Virtually everything they have done has been a mistake.

Ryan’s 14 years in the House have equipped him in this area. And Romney has a very saavy group of foreign policy advisors. Obama was a complete zero compared to McCain on foreign policy. It made no difference.

What’s funny about this is that they share the same foreign policy theories. Robert Kagan is one of those who believe in Muslim democracy and all that jive (he rebuked Beck for predicting the Arab Spring would become a Winter), and he is on Mitt Romney’s foreign policy team. His book “The World America Made” was actually endorsed and recommended by Obama himself awhile back.

0bama's foreign policy experience is Communists
like Frank Marshall Davis, Valerie Jarrett, Axelrod & Rahmie.

Joe Biden is a professional drunk.

The article author is correct. I had forgotten about the extensive military service of nobama and slow-joe.

“Will foreign policy play into the election as big as Medicare/healthcare will?”

Probably not. Nobody running at the moment is really involved in it, including the incumbent. The electorate itself isn’t terribly focused on it, either, so it isn’t going to be much of an issue.

“Seizing on the opportunity, President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign opened a new front against the GOP ticket on Wednesday, drilling Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan on veterans issues.

In a campaign conference call, former Navy secretary Richard Danzig and retired Army Maj. Gen. Wallace Arnold accused Romney and Ryan of not not having a “record of support for vets” or sympathy to “a system that has been taking care of veterans for generations,”...

This is laughable. The Obama campaign using these two clowns to try to attract the military veteran vote. The day a liberal Democrat presidential candidate appeals to a majority of the military is the day a conservative Republican candidate takes the black vote. Neither is in the realm of possibility. Obama best go back to accusing Romney of killing people’s wives and Ryan of slinging old folks off cliffs.

Pulling out of the missile defense system for Poland on the anniversary of Russia’s invasion. All to make the Russian’s happy. Great foreign policy leadership by Obama right there/s.

As of the 2008 election, I had more foreign policy and military experience than 0bama and Biden combined.

So what's your point?

And DUmmies elected a community organizer and a joker who had zero military experience.

Good call. Because if you can fall back on the cumulative military and foreign policy expertise of Hillary Clinton - that'd be nothing - 0bama - still nothing - and Joe Biden - dear God, Joe could drive a tank over his own foot - you really don't have anything to worry about from the likes of Romney/Ryan. I say go there. When you can cite foreign policy triumphs such as an illegal war against Gadaffi and a victory for the Moslem Brotherhood, undermining Mubarak and a victory for the Moslem Brotherhood, and destabilizing Assad in Syria on behalf of the Moslem Brotherhood, you're pretty much unassailable on the topic. As long as the voters are strictly Moslem Brotherhood, that is.

Let's see - Churchill's bust, a garbage sack full of political speeches for the Queen in a format she couldn't view, bowing and scraping to every two-bit despot in the Third World, sackcloth and ashes for America's past, a wife who publicly was never proud of America, a withdrawal from Iraq six months PAST Bush's schedule, an endless drone war in Afghanistan and more casualties in three years than we took under Bush in seven...shall I go on? Sure, they can run on that record. Bring it on.

Foreign policy. The only foreign policy the commie boy president has is bowing to everyone he sees, after jetting around the world on our dime. Foreign policy my arse.

That being said, you've gained the ire of the kitties, and now are little pieces of grime floating around the universe.
