Capitalist @ ConservativeShir

Is this the guy that is going to keep America's defense policies strong?

Politico admits that Obama’s indefensible defense cuts may become an issue in the 2012 presidential election. If that happens, defense will play a role in the presidential campaign for the first time since 2000.

And Obama is preparing himself for that. Knowing full well that his record on defense and foreign policy is downright disastrous and indefensible, and that Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman (both of whom are extremely weak on defense and foreign policy) are trying to outbid him on defense cuts proposals, he plans to lie to the American people to lull them into a false sense of security and mislead them to think they are secure and that Obama will keep them secure. This is what he has been doing for the last 3 years.

The average American is not stupid, but he/she does not have enough free time to research these issues and become a foreign policy wonk, and most Americans still get their news from the mainstream media (ABC, CNN, NBC, MSNBC, and CBS), which, of course, will lie about these issues through their teeth to make Obama look good. This is how last year, with a downright disastrous record, Obama could still get a  plurality of Americans to approve of his job on foreign affairs, while a sizeable majority disapproved of his domestic policies.

Indeed, we conservatives have wrongly assumed that ordinary Americans should research the facts for themselves, when they don’t have the time to do that, and we get uppity when we discover that they don’t know the facts and don’t understand our policies. It is OUR job to explain that to them.

In terms of foreign and defense policy, it means we conservatives must continue to research the facts, translate them into terms that the average American can understand, and use these facts against Obama. The facts are on our side. The truth about Obama is that his foreign and defense policies have been downright disastrous. Our job is to collect all the pertinent facts, convert them into a coherent message, and deliver that message to the American people.

So what exactly should we tell the American people? Let’s start with Obama’s newest round of defense cuts.
