Romney in VA talks foreign policy - do those issues sway your vote?
Romney was in Virginia ... again. This time at VMI, one of our revered military institutes discussing his perspective on foreign policy and his take on the direction we should take when it comes to the Middle East. Romeny believes that we should be more aggressive and is noted as putting the President in a bad light when discussing his relations with other countries.
With the President looking to withdraw troops sooner rather than later, it's interesting to hear Romney's take on the subject so we can hopefully get a sense of the direction our country might turn if we decide that Obama is a one-term President.
Here's the thing...Romney doesn't have a clear-cut plan. He talks a big game and certainly claims to have big plans that are better and more productive than our current President, and while the fearful American in me wants to run to that hope of different and potentially better - I'm not sold just yet.
Then I look at what our current President represents and how hard he's worked to take what he inherited to make it better. It's not to say he won't leave things for other Presidents to inherit as well as our children, but I don't believe he is solely responsible either.
While I may not agree with many things on either candidate's platform - there are a few key things I think about and they include:
- To what degree will the United States be involved in the continued unrest in the Middle East?
- How will you help build up our education system (without testing as the only way to teach) so we can be a competitor within the world?
- How will you work to create more jobs within our country versus doling them out to other countries?
What are your biggest worries or concerns at this point in the election process?
