A neoconservative view of the conflict between isolationism and interventionism in foreign policy and its relationship to presidential politics and the future of the Republican party.

If there is nothing but Democrats on the ticket, the future of the GOP is the least of our worries.

I’m a bit smaller than Gov. Christie and there’s no way I would be able to take the stresses and strains of the presidency. If he were to select Gov. Palin as his running mate I might vote for them [wink, wink]

Rand Paul will not have trouble convincing the American people to be sympathetic to his basically neoisolationist philosophy. It is very difficult to demonstrate to the average American on how all the foreign costly entanglements have benefited the United States.

Chris Christie isn’t even ANY candidate, at the moment. Not ready for prime time as a Democrat, his support lies in tatters at moment even among the Establishment GOP. It will take a lot more than has already been done to properly groom this fence-straddler for national office.

William Howard Taft was much more remembered for his corpulent girth than for any great executive accomplishments. Is Chris Christie trying to achieve similar distinction?

Here is what I would like to see for the GOP nominee’s foreign policy. Seal the borders to keep foreigners foreign. Stop granting citizenship, asylum, residencies and student visas to members of societies or cultures that have been at perpetual, mostly undeclared war against western culture for over 1,000 years. Stop funding and hosting the United Nations. If we have a war, let’s declare one and decimate our enemies before trying to win hearts and minds. Stop protecting enemy civilian populations over the well being of our troops with ridiculous rules of engagement.

That will do for a start.

Is Christie the Foreign Policy Candidate?

Well Jersey is certainly "foreign", so he has has more experience than cankles and so far he hasn't abandoned an ambassador and heroes to be slaughtered.
