Honesty is the Best Foreign Policy

On Monday morning, Mitt Romney appeared before the assembled men and women of the Virginia Military Institute, and gave a foreign policy speech which made it very, very clear that if he is elected, there’s going to be a new sheriff in town. One who is strong militarily, and is entirely clear about supporting our allies and causing our enemies to have sleepless nights.

It’s the strongest, most logical, most pro-American, and most Presidential foreign policy speech we’ve heard in four years…and we can only imagine that when Barack Obama heard this speech and thought about his upcoming foreign policy debate, he responsed immediately and forcefully:explosively filling his adult diapers like a shrieking, diarrhea-stricken infant after a 3-day strained prune bender.

Although the liberal MSM is saying that Romney’s speech was “vague” and “lacked details”  (keep in mind, these are the same people who thought “Yes We Can” was the most detailed set of policy blueprints since God layed out the Universe) we thought Mitt was extremely thorough within the confines of a 22-minute speech.

He was able to single out the president’s failures in Syria, Yemen, and Somalia. Criticize Mr. Obama for failing to even voice support for the people’s uprising in Iran, while simultaneously doing nothing substantive to prevent Iran (“A tiny country that poses no serious threat,”according to Barry in 2008) from obtaining nuclear weapons to obliterate our ally Israel. Or make that former-ally, since Romney concedes damage repair will be needed after Obama’s policy of “creating daylight” between the U.S. and Israel.

Mitt Romney looked at the disastrous situation in Libya, and the murder of our ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi. A terrorist attack which the president’s team lied about for over a week, and about which there are still serious questions regarding why they pulled the Ambassador’s security team after he asked for more, not less, security.

Mitt didn’t forget the rest of Obama’s botched foreign policies either, like caving to Russia whenever possible (and promising “more flexibility” after the election), reducing our missile protection of allies in Europe, and failing to stay strong in the face of pressures – military and economic – from China. Nor did he spare Mr. Obama from the harsh reality that the president’s policies are throwing away our military gains in Afghanistan solely for the president’s political benefit.

Note to MSM – tell us again, please, about how this speech lacked specifics?

Here at Hope n’ Change, we expected to like the speech – but were somewhat surprised to loveit. And to be reawakened to the sound of a possible President who speaks like a grown-up and an American, discussing goals and ideals but doing so with a specificity that Barack Obama wouldn’t dream of (and which his father clearly didn’t dream about).

We’ve embedded the full 22 minute speech below, and strongly encourage you to watch it (or, you can read the full transcript here). You can even enhance your pleasure by imagining the Tourette’s-like screams of agony which must have been occuring while Obama’s debate prep team were watching this and imagining Barry “Choom Gang” Soetoro facing these accusations on live television while Mitt demands answers.

There was a time when all Hope n’ Change wanted was Obama out of the Whitehouse.

Happily, we now also want Mitt Romney in the Whitehouse. Watch, and see if you don’t agree.


Yes, this is the Change we’ve been Hoping for.
