On foreign policy, you get statements like this from spokesman Tucker Bounds:
The reaction of the Obama campaign to this crisis, so at odds with our democratic allies and yet so bizarrely in sync with Moscow, doesn't merely raise questions about Senator Obama's judgment--it answers them.
Do we really want another president who reduces complex foreign affairs to this kind of schoolyard rhetoric? How's this for an almost comic summation of all that was wrong with Bush's foreign policy - and that McCain pledges to put on steroids:
It's this campaign's position that every American has a "vested interest" in the welfare of the Republic of Georgia, a key regional ally and a member of our Coalition in Iraq.
No sense of proportion, just knee-jerk confrontation from a position of powerlessness. Then the obligatory McCarthyite swerve:
Shouldn't it be of far greater concern to Americans that the Obama campaign is pushing an attack that is "mirrored" by PR firms flaking for Putin's Kremlin?
Re-elect Cheney. Vote McCain.
