The Continuing GOP Foreign Policy Meltdown
jackandjillpolitics.com — The election of President Obama further decoupled the GOP from the American condition. They don’t have to be responsive to any issue, any situation, any reality, or the truth. Their base hates the President more than they love America, so their candidates can do and say whatever lunatic, hateful, mendacious claptrap comes to mind. Their version of the 47 percent doesn’t care what they say, as long as the President is defeated, or shamed, or humiliated. They simply don’t care. Even in this contested reality, foreign policy has existed as the one place where there should be some buy-in from the GOP. But I find myself aghast at the GOP’s lack of foreign policy seriousness. Looking at the GOP field, at their ideas and ideology, devoid as it is from reality, we should all be terrified of a Romney Presidency.
