In this speech, not only does Mitt Romney call out the president on his foreign policy missteps, he makes a commitment to stand by America's true allies, promises to renew America's resolve and channels Ronald Reagan in reminding voters about the meaning of peace through strength. In channeling Reagan, Mitt Romney states the following:
"The first purpose of a strong military is to prevent war."Whether through technology, weaponry and training, the military not only keeps the homeland safe, but will act as a deterrent around the world. Less opportunities will be taken and if the need comes for the military to be used, a sound defeat will more likely and quickly occur.
Barack Obama has claimed he will bridge the gap between the world and the United States, yet, he has made this country look weak, bringing about an even greater disdain for America due to his habit of spiking the football, while at the same time, lulling the American people into a false sense of security. The truth is that the Arab world and America's enemies respect strength much more than they do weakness.
Good job by the Romney campaign for continuing to stay on the offense as the final days count down to November 6th.
