First, let's talk about Pres BO. Can this man say something other than "Obama killed Osama"? Is there another accomplishment? The answer is no and that is why we hear this over and over again. Also, didn't we get Osama because of info from GITMO? Candidate BO opposed GITMO and the rendition jails that got info from terrorists.
Can we stop hearing that Pres BO ended the Iraq War? In fact, the Obama administration implemented the plan that Pres Bush negotiated at the end of 2008. The real story is that they failed to leave a residual force and secure the gains that we made in Iraq.
Can we stop hearing about how our allies love us more now? There is no evidence of that. This is "a talking point" based on a fantasy that the world hated the US because we invaded Iraq.
Gov Romney had a good night because he tied our national security to our economy. You can not project power with big deficits and anemic GDP growth. You need a sound economy to finance the kind of military that we will need in the 21st century.
Gov Romney is correct about China, i.e. they are indeed manipulating their currency at the expense of our manufacturers. We can't compete with China and it has nothing to do with our workers or productivity.
Last, but not least, I was happy to hear Gov Romney talk about the economic and strategic importance of Latin America. We have huge markets for US exports from Mexico to Argentina and we need to start developing them China is all over Latin America. Unfortunately, Iran is also expanding its influence and that makes our porous border with Mexico even more dangerous.
