While Obama as president may have maintained relationships and paid lip service to policies of previous administrations, it's been clear from the get-go that he had could barely spare the time of day for the UK, Poland, and Israel, to cite just a few. He embarked on his apology tours around the world, bowing indiscriminately. He has neglected, delayed, undermined, and ultimately left our troops overseas twisting in the wind by telegraphing a date of withdrawal. Why would anyone trust us with their future if they know we're abandoning them.
Then there is the matter of our dead ambassador, and 3 other brave Americans, left to die in Libya, I imagine because the president just did not want to deal with the realities on the ground. He is the commander in chief and he failed and betrayed them.
Preezie O was true to form in the debate--petty, sarcastic, ignorant and feckless. There will be more questions on Libya, the lies are unraveling.
Governor Romney assumed the mantle of president last night. He spoke with knowledge and assurance--giving confidence to our allies, and the American people. "America has not dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators"
There will be no apologies from President Romney.
And we won't lead from behind, we will lead.
Romney said we can't kill our way out of this mess. And we can't spend our way out of the mess at home. Mitt again spoke of the 23 million Americans who look in the mirror every day and feel despair that they have no job.
We're closer to the November vote, and to the January day when Americans will join together again to build a better future. We can do this.
P.S. A Question Not Asked Is the administration again preparing to transfer Guantanamo prisoners to an Illinois facility?
More. Romney closer note to supporters:
A brighter futureLast night was the last debate before the election, and the President failed once again to outline his plan for a second term.
With 23 million people struggling for work, and nearly one in six Americans living in poverty, we can't afford to give President Obama another chance to get it right.
I am running for president to help create a better future. Our plan to undo the damage of the last four years includes strengthening the middle class with 12 million jobs, and ensuring more take-home pay and better opportunities for all Americans.
Our supporters have joined our cause and transformed this campaign into a nationwide movement. Over 119,000 volunteers have made nearly 45 million volunteer voter contacts since Victory launched this year, including over 9 million door-to-door voter contacts.
If I am elected President of the United States, I will work with all my heart to restore strength to America. Our children deserve it, our nation depends upon it, and the peace and freedom of the world require it.
And with your help, we will deliver that brighter future.
