Ah, yes! Now I am beginning to recall those events of 2008.
I remember now, too, being worried that McCain was very enthused about keeping the wars going and that worried me...and thinking Obama might be more
of a peacemaker.
And reading that last excerpt, it seems as if it was necessary since Bush wasn't very popular and foreign relations was so crucial then.
And it is even more so now, I think. And truthfully, I didn't see anything wrong with Romney doing his international tour, either...I do think that
foreign relations is something that might be best demonstrated, especially when new to it, as any Presidential candidate might very well be, but not
all of them.
And definitely a learn-as-you go type of thing...Bill Clinton seemed to have learned a lot because now he is regarded by many to be very good at that
kind of thing and from what I understand, if not for him, we might not have been able to get those two women back from Iran after being arrested in
that border thing.
So, I was okay with it on the foreign relations part...I should have put 'international' or something in my search box, I guess. Thanks for doing
that research and posting the links.
And I guess I really didn't have any beef with the post-Isaac visit to LA by Romney...especially, again, because of Bush's contrasting behavior
during his term.
But then, all this hubbub about the Libya thing started me thinking just how much is okay and is Romney overstepping his boundaries.
And this isn't an effort to say Obama was better or Romney was right but simply that it might not give the best impression to other countries...I
think that no matter what personal opinions and ideas are, or how they differ...things of such a sensitive nature are hard enough to deal with without
having that internal schism being exposed like that. It makes us even more of a target, perhaps?
And regardless of who is elected in November, the job doesn't officially start until inauguration in January...whether it be a new POTUS or a
continuing one...there are maybe some duties of the President that should be left to the President to do, as he sees fit. When he's replaced in the
Oval Office, then someone else has those duties.
Does that make sense? I hope I don't seem as if I'm bashing Romney because I'm not, really...I think his campaign manager people do a lot of this
planning and stuff and maybe he's sort of thrust into positions he might not be rushing into, himself, but more like pushed into.
That is what it kind of seemed like, when I read about the funding rally in FL being postponed for a press conference.
