Presidential Debate Preview

The final presidential debate review may be framed accordingly: Obama will want to be judged on his foreign policy intentions; Romney will want voters to judge Obama on his foreign policy actions.

As with arms control (and government intervention, writ large), the problem with the Obama Administration isn’t that it hasn’t been given a chance to succeed; it’s that its success, like tomorrow, is always only a day away.

The Romney theme will be that America needs new leadership because the cost of the status quo is greater than the risk of change. The President—apparently both writing and believing his own press releases—said he’d restore America from the grinding foreign policy failures of George W. Bush. The reality is America’s position in the world is the lowest it’s been since the Civil War.

As Winston Churchill might have suggested, Obama has confused disarmament with peace. When we have peace, disarmament will follow. And to paraphrase Curtis LeMay, when you kill enough terrorists, they’ll stop fighting (and even the President knows this at some level, hence the ongoing drone wars). The lesson of history is that peace ends in war and war ends in peace.

Finally, the left’s pillow-biting media will remain incapable of understanding the difference between a man who sheds light and one who lights fires. The Barack Obama experience has been a fool’s errand and Americans have played the fool.

Dig this.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
