One Down, Three To Go
It is strange that the qualities we are looking for in a sitting President - thoughtful, calm, and serious - are exactly the qualities which we penalize in those running for President, sorry to see Fred Thompson withdraw.
Now who? Don't know, but Romney is intriguing, The American Thinker has an interesting article on Mitt......Why they Hate Mitt Romney.
We can't forget that we are at war with a relentless enemy. Victory in Iraq or Afghanistan is not victory in the war. It will take years of relentless pursuit of our enemies to put an end to the evil of Islamic terrorism.
And we also have extremely dangerous rivals, if not enemies, in Russia and China. As Russia provides Iran with anti-missile defenses, specifically designed to shoot down American planes in the event we should need to take military action against Iran, it should be clear to us all that the so-called "end of history" and "peace dividend" were, to say the least, premature.
We need, above anything else, a president who can be trusted to be both careful and dogged in pursuing our foreign policy. The Democratic Party has no candidate fit to be trusted with our foreign policy in this dangerous world. And the Republican Party has only Rudy Giuliani who shows that he already understands how the job is done, with McCain as a decent second and Mitt Romney as a lightweight who might be able to learn the job, hopefully in time.
A nice preview of what we can expect on the world scene took place with assasination of Benazir Bhutto. Rudy and McCain showed worldly presence and leadership, Romney too, but not as much and Huckabee was a disaster. I'll vote for whoever is the nominee, Rudy, Mitt and McCain get the nod here............and Rudy/Mitt battling it out for my vote.
