Skip to comments.Romney's brilliant foreign policy choice [ 2nd Former Reagan adviser to compare Mitt to Reagan ]
Posted on 08/13/2012 3:02:19 PM PDT by NoLibZone
No doubt the Obama administration is fast at work sharpening their knives to slice and dice Paul Ryan as lacking the foreign policy chops to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.
By choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate, Romney has made an inspired choice on foreign policy grounds!
First, the greatest long-term national security threat the United States faces isnt China, or Russia, or Al Qaeda. Its our dwindling economic power. As former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mullin has said many times, the single, biggest threat to our national security is our debt.
Ive worked for three presidents, and the best of them was Ronald Reagan. People used to say Reagan didnt know enough about foreign affairs to be president. But he knew enough to win the Cold War without firing a shot, which all the diplomats, academics and experts before him had failed to do.
Reagan understood that Americas free market capitalism is the most powerful weapon in our arsenal. And he understood that before using it to defeat the Soviet Empire, he would have to bring it back to health. 2012 is shaping up to be 1980 all over again. Compare Obamas you didnt build that with Paul Ryans call to arms that We wont duck the tough issues...we will lead!
We wont blame others we will take responsibility!
We wont replace our founding principles we will reapply them!
By choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate, Romney has crossed the Rubicon into Reagan land. He has wedded himself to the Ryan budget and there is no turning back.

Kathleen Troia “KT” McFarland (born on or around July 24, 1951) was the deputy assistant secretary of defense for public affairs at The Pentagon from 1982 to 1985 under President Ronald Reagan and speech writer to Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger.
"Like Reagan, Romney is a contrite convert, referring to his past support for Roe as his lifes defining mistake.
When challenged about his previous support for abortion in a Republican debate in December, he said I changed my mind Im firmly pro-life sometimes Im wrong.
Mitt Romney displays humility and gratitude in discussing his evolution on abortion. Skeptical pro-lifers should do the same in embracing him.
Former presidential candidate Gary Bauer is president of American Values and chairman of the Campaign for Working Families, and served for 8 years in the administration of President Ronald Reagan, including a stint as Reagans domestic policy adviser.

If Romney is the new Ronald Reagan, then the new Ronald Reagan is the new Jimmy Carter, except he’s Mormon and has a Presidential looking chin.
As for the Ryan budget, it looks like Romney won’t even discuss it. And for the budget itself, it looks like it wasn’t as epically conservative as we all first assumed.
Romney is nothing like Reagan - nothing.
Unless, you like combed hair.
“Mitt Romney displays humility and gratitude in discussing his evolution on abortion. Skeptical pro-lifers should do the same in embracing him.”
That’s a lie, since Romney has flipped from pro-choice to pro-life to pro-choice to pro-life again.
Rick Santorum, not a former Reagan advisor , also compared Mitt to Reagan:
Reagan had two ears and Romney has two ears.
Reagan was the gipper and Romney is the flipper. Not only that but Reagan starts with an “R” and so does Romney.
Wow,they really are simular!
That's not going to change regardless of who gets elected in November. Neither Romney or Obama have any plan to make any meaningful dent in the deficit. Even if Romney gets his tax cuts passed and even if they work as expected it'll be a few years before revenue begins to grow. In the mean time trillion dollar deficits will continue.
She must’ve been quite the looker when she was younger.
How, when, and why Mitt Romney changed his mind on abortion.
"When you see the story in its full context, three things become clear. First, this was no flip-flop."
A far, far bigger deal could be made of whatever faith Obama follows, because it sure doesn’t include the welfare of America as a whole.
Last I remember, Mormons don’t want to kill me.
Besides, my favorite author is a Mormon.
LOL that’s good.
The articles are too long for you.
Sorry , they don’t fit on a bumper sticker like Ron Paul’s do.
So you feel that Gary Bauer and Rick Santorum are ignorant?
No, Bauer and Santorum are correct Romney has good hair just like Reagan.
I like Battlestar Galactica as well.
I thought that “Bark Alerts” were mandatory for such looney, BS, articles as this ...
Mitt Romney despised Reagan, and left the party when Reagan won the nomination, just like when he and his dad stormed off the convention floor to protest Goldwater winning that nomination.
Left the party, that is amazing.
What a hoot...Romney is about as close to Ronald Reagan as Nelson Rockefeller.
Santorum was ignorant when he endorsed removing pro-life from the republican party platform, and of course for his being a Romney and Specter man for all these years, and for thinking that Reagan was too far right for him, and for switching from pro-abortion to pro-life to run for office, just like Mitt did.
“As former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mullin has said many times, ‘the single, biggest threat to our national security is our debt.’”
Oh yes, the same Admiral Mullin that gave us open homosexuals in the military before he deserted. I’m certain Reagan would be for sodomites openly serving in the Armed Forces(NOT!) Mullin abused his position a CJCS to FORCE the Obama agenda of repealing DADT. He SOLD OUT the military. Using him as a reference is NOT wise.
Gary Bauer had the nerve to say that! Maybe he still has debt from his old presidential run and Romney has offered to help him with that.
Thank you so much for that link. Those lying POSs haven’t quit trying to prop up their gay loving baby murderer by smearing Reagan. Now they’ve got a new twist — align Romney’s questionable “conversion” with Reagan’s actual grief over what the dems did in California with abortion law he signed, hoping people will fooled into believing Romney really is pro-life.
Has Romney himself ever expressed any remorse, no not really. To this day he is nothing but all smiles and laughter about his baby Romneycare and all the murder of innocent children it has brought about.
When it comes to trying to pull the wool over conservatives eyes, to paraphrase a truly great man, “there they go again.”
Well I was referring to Orson Scott Card; should’ve said that.
Romney and Netanyahu were co-workers 40 years ago, and have remained close friends. They finish each others sentences. A President Romney and Prime Minister Netanyahu dont have to agree on everything, but they must have confidence in each other. Romney doesnt need a vice president to tell him how to gain the Israeli prime ministers confidence; hes already got it.
“I will use one of your like minded iberal sites to argue you are wrong:
How, when, and why Mitt Romney changed his mind on abortion.
“When you see the story in its full context, three things become clear. First, this was no flip-flop.”
This is one of those “Who do you believe? Me or your lying eyes?” things that you Romneyphiles want us to embrace. Romney instituted 50 dollar abortions after his pro-life conversion, and actually he was pro-life before he went to pro-choice, and then pro-life again. Depends on the audience really.
“Rick Santorum, not a former Reagan advisor , also compared Mitt to Reagan:
To be fair, Rick Santorum thought he would win on a platform of “God loves me the best” while helping Mitt trash the other conservatives in the race, while at the same time claiming to be “above it all” despite the ads he was running. Santorum is a liar and a good dog for the GOPe.
November cannot come fast enough.
“I was NEVER part of the Reagan Revolution. I never believed in it”. mitt romney
“I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” - Genesis 12:3
I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. - Joel 3:2
Look around. As we become more and more anti-Israel, how’s it working out for us?
Well, hell, if Obama can be Lincoln even though they’re polar opposites, I don’t see why Romney can’t compare himself to Reagan. Why not do Obama one better and be Roosevelt?
Reagan never said anything like this:
Which Roosevelt? fdr or Elanor?
The articles are too long for you.
Sorry , they dont fit on a bumper sticker like Ron Pauls do.
Yep, to long.
I don’t know bumper stickers can convey a lot.
Bumper sticker: Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Whereas, Obama can talk for, what seems like, non-stop for 3 plus years and say very little.
Fact,is Romeny himself said he was no Reagan. Did he take it back?
Thats not even going into all his extreme liberal positions while Governor.
Looks like Jim rob disagrees with you.
He didn't when he posted that. What are you going to do... keep attacking Conservatives that disagree with you?
I am seeing attacks and preening and gloating from rombots, in return for your personal decision to vote for romney. Are we Conservatives now persona non grata on FR? Jim, do you embrace the attack and harassment of those that were behind you when you were steadfast against romney? Should I leave now and not return? Is it open season on those of us that cannot support willard. Just say the word... one way or the other... this crap needs to either be condoned or you need to come out and respect those of us that cannot get to where you are.
