Who could forget Sarah Palin’s effort to bolster her foreign policy credentials during the 2008 campaign when she proudly proclaimed that Alaska and Russia shared a maritime border.
When Mitt Romney looks toward the ocean he can waive to Cape Cod or Nantucket, but neither are foreign countries.
Sarah Palin, who had no foreign policy experience, had more experience than Mitt Romney. At least she could waive. Palin also served on city council, and then as mayor of Wasilla before becoming the Governor of Alaska. Conversely, Mitt Romney held no elected position before becoming the Governor of Massachusets. Romney has not even served on his city council or as mayor. As Governor, he didn’t quit before his four year was up, but has never served in any position other than his position as Governor of Massachusetts. He, like Palin, can declare himself to be “Undefeated” even though he has been defeated.
Palin ran for Lt. Governor and lost, and for Vice President, and lost. Mitt Romney ran for President in 2008 and lost, and ran for Senate and lost to Kennedy.
Thus Mitt Romney’s only leadership position in government has been his four years as Governor of Massachusetts, which ended five years ago. Romney has had no leadership positions to make him qualified in the foreign policy arena. Yet Romney is now attacking Obama for his handling of the Middle East. The amazing thing is that the only “foreign policy” experience that Romney can claim is his experience outsourcing jobs to foreign countries, and the transfer of money to foreign countries. That’s the kind of foreign policy experience we don’t need. When Palin waived to Russia, she didn’t do damage to the United States, other than making us look foolish for ever supporting such an incompetent candidate. However every time Romney deals with a foreign country it hurts the American economy.
