Kerry’s foreign policy

Max Boot asks whether John Kerry has a view on foreign policy, or, is he merely driven by politics. He looks at his voting record; it’s not to Kerry’s advantage. Peter Beinart, of The New Republic, praises Joe Biden’s speech at the convention and wishes that Kerry’s speech were as good. Kerry may be prepared to be commander in chief, but he lacks the imagination of one. George Will poses a bunch of questions to Kerry, some on foreign policy. The Belmont Club asserts that the Democratic Party seems to be a "war party" now. "Yet on closer inspection, their new determination to fight terrorism is still a Jim Crow form of pacifism, an effort to perpetuate the antebellum policies beloved by the Party base in acceptable phrases. There are warlike sounds without an enemy named; a candidate reports for duty without articulating a strategy for victory. It is the Band of Brothers speech without an Agincourt, either pending or envisaged. But it is the first crack in the monumental edifice of Left, and while small, a disturbing and tingling tremor runs to the top of its highest battlements."

Foreign Policy in ths Country is in a shambles.
When you stop and think about it, If this election was Sen. Kerry vs. Gov. Bush, Kerry would make Bush look like a school boy on foreign policy, and so we ask, can Bush do a better job when dealing with the world now that he has had 4 years of on the job traning?

Humm......

Sometimes employees dont work out and you have to fire them.

"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."
- George W. Bush (AT THE SIGNING OF H.R. 4613, THE DEFENSE APPROPRIATIONS ACT FOR FISCAL YEAR 2005)
