ELECTION: How’s Obama’s ‘friends’ policy working?

It is interesting that U.S. Rep. Adam Smith attacks the prior administration on national security (TNT, 7-17).

We were secure during the Bush administration, perhaps because of the aggressive response to the terror perpetrated on our soil. How has the Obama “let’s be friends” policy with Iran and North Korea worked? The reset with Russia? Really, not so well.

It is interesting that Smith chose to attack Mitt Romney on foreign policy and conveniently deflect focus from a disastrous economy. Will Barack Obama ever take responsibility for his economy, or after almost four years will he continue to run against George W. Bush? It is pathetic.

Romney is not Bush. It will be refreshing to have a president who actually has familiarity with the private sector and understands what drives job creation and economic growth.

It is time for a change. I don’t want four more years of international confusion and economic disaster.
