Democrats and their sharky Obamedia defense lawyers are in a snit. For three dreamy convention days in Charlotte, they told themselves that, for the first time in decades, it was their guy who had the upper hand when it came to national security. Now that bubble has burst, the way contrived narratives do when they crash into concrete challenges. At that point, an airy president of the world wont do; we need to have a president of the United States, a job that has never suited, and has never been of much interest to, Barack Obama.
Defense against foreign enemies is the primary job of the president of the United States. The rationale for the offices creation is national defense not green venture capitalism, not rationing medical care, not improving the self-image of the Muslim world, not leaving no child behind, not blowing out the Treasurys credit line. Yet, though we are entering the late innings, foreign policy and national defense have not been factors in the 2012 campaign.
That is worth bearing in mind when we hear the laugh-out-loud narrative of Obama as foreign-affairs chess master. The president badly wants to win reelection. If there were anything to his alleged prowess, wed not have heard the end of it. What weve heard, instead, is a bumper-sticker: Obama killed Osama. The Left hoped to paste it over the presidents generally dreary record. Even with the Obamedia in coordinated overdrive, the plan can work only if Mitt Romney lets it work and, thankfully, it looks like he wont.

wow that is a great article
Thank you Mr. Levin - it’s about time someone with listeners speaks of the assault they are building against the Firts Amnedment by the incessant blaming those who practice Free Speech for the violence of others.
Anyone remember that Obama threatened the opposition in the 2008 election with criminal and police action as well?
This animal is what this animal is.
“America will not tolerate attacks against our citizens and against our embassies. Well defend also our constitutional rights of speech, and assembly, and religion. We have confidence in our cause in America. We respect our Constitution. We stand for the principles our constitution protects. We encourage other nations to understand and respect the principles of our constitution, because we recognize that these principles are the ultimate source of freedom for individuals around the world.”
Thank you Governor Romney! We MUST defeat Obama!
