Assigned Reading: A Timid Advocate of Freedom
(FROM: National Review)
Due to work and school obligations, I don’t have much time to put proverbial pen to paper today. Still, I read this piece while taking a moment to breathe, and thought it a good summation of Barack Obama’s foreign policy blunders and overall approach.
I know there are a good number of Mitt Romney detractors out there, and I understand where people are coming from in advocating for a certain candidate over another, but if at all possible, read the piece for a moment without paying attention to the byline. Read the piece as though it were written by an unnamed editorial board or by somebody low-profile like myself (suspend disbelief a little though, as my wallet isn’t nearly as thick as Romney’s).
Regardless of its author, I found it to be an excellent, excellent piece of writing. That it was written by a man who could be a contender for the 2012 GOP nomination, though, was an added confidence-booster. And yes, I would have said the same thing if it were written by Mike Huckabee, or Sarah Palin, or any other conservative leader.
