Foreign policy open to debate

 

Editor’s note: Cal Thomas wrote this column prior to the presidential election and a new Thomas column was not available for the News-Review before press time at noon Tuesday, Nov. 6.

AFTER WATCHING THE third presidential debate, are you clear on America’s foreign policy? I thought not. That’s because there appears to be no singular foreign policy, rather a series of foreign policies, which must be tailored to fit each nation.

The 2nd debate

By Cal Thomas

IN FORM, President Obama came back strongly in last Tuesday’s debate with Mitt Romney, but substantively he continues to lag behind the Republican candidate. That’s because the president has a record to defend and it isn’t a good one.

Television being what it is, the president looked and sounded good, but the air seems to have gone out of his messianic balloon as voters focus more on facts and less on spin.

If promises mean anything — and they don’t to most politicians — Romney hit the president where it hurts: on his failure to live up to most of his promises.

Total reprobate

By Cal Thomas

“YOU CAN’T RUN from your mistakes. You have to confront them.”?—?Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Believe it or not, there was a time when people didn’t go on TV to confess their sins. That was back when most understood what sin is, before everything became excusable, especially for celebrities and the politically powerful.

Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is on a media tour promoting his book, “Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story.” It certainly is.

It’s all out in the open

By Cal Thomas

THERE’S ANOTHER video, this one of Mitt Romney speaking to donors at a fundraiser in Boca Raton.

The video was reportedly “leaked” by James Carter IV, the grandson of former President Jimmy Carter. How appropriate. It apparently was saved for the most politically opportune moment and then published by the liberal Mother Jones Magazine in hopes of causing maximum damage to the Romney campaign. It’s all part of the Democrats’ attempt to distract attention from the president’s failed record.

More coverage is networks’ duty

By Cal  Thomas

MY FIRST POLITICAL convention was in 1964 when Democrats convened in Atlantic City to nominate Lyndon Johnson for a full term as president. I was a young copyboy at the NBC News network bureau in Washington. We arrived from Washington aboard a chartered DC-3 plane that also carried the late anchor/reporter Frank McGee and his wife.
