We have now been treated to several months of Republican candidates pontificating on how they would handle foreign policy. Let me sum up their “ideas.”
1. Bomb whatever is moving. Who the hell knows how or why bombing guys who are hiding will result in their deaths.
2. Restore the American military to what it once was. The US military budget is nearly $60o billion. That is greater than the next six nations. Oh, we have 12 Carrier groups and the Chinese navy has ONE old aircraft carrier.
3. Ted insists that he even knows where the Middle East is, but the only one that he surpasses in knowledge is Donald Trump.
4. Let’s build a wall on our southern border. I assume that is an example of foreign policy.
5. Let’s NOT build a wall on our northern border. Gee, do you think terrorists might figure out it is OK to get in by the northern border?
6. Be tough with China. Whatever that means.
7. Fuck NATO. Now that is a great example of foreign policy.

There is no question that John Kasich is an impassioned man, a man who shouts loud and clear about his accomplishments in politics. “I balanced the budget” is a continual refrain from the Ohio Governor. Actually, when Kasich was in Congress during the 1990s, the budget WAS balanced. However, the President at that time in history was Bill Clinton, a Democrat. So, how does A member of Congress “balance the budget” that was presented by the President? Frankly, I do not have a clue. John, historians usually, ordinarily credit the President for a balanced budget, but they, of course, never were candidates for president.
“I created 400,000 jobs here in Ohio.” Fantastic, a Governor who is a job creator. John insists that he made Ohio a happier place for people to live. “I expanded Medicaid, even though many opposed my idea.” For once, John, you are correct. You did challenge the norm for Republicans and supported expansion of Medicaid. Of course, the Democratic President, Barack Obama sor to had a few thing to do with this expansion.
I admit to enjoying the fervor,the humble thanks to God, the stories of desperate women he saved because he only thought of them in his actions. For some strange reason, John never says a word about his union-busting actions which probably cost the average worker thousands in extra pay.
