President Obama will try tonight to paint Mitt Romney as a warmonger with no experience and who is consistently wrong. But at some point during tonight’s foreign policy debate, I would like to see President Obama answer this following question;
After opposing the war in Iraq and calling it a “dumb war”, and after carrying out the Bush timeline in Iraq and seeing that war through to its conclusion, do you still consider it to have been a “dumb war” and given the current situation in the Middle East, do you think we would be better today if Saddam Hussein was still in power?
The question is one that goes to the heart of Barack Obama’s foreign policy or lack thereof. It is a policy that is adrift and lacking any meaningful purpose. And the question I put forth is one which if answered honestly, should shed some light on the President’s willingness or unwillingness to confront our enemies if he were to be granted a second presidential term.
