Sod Off Wednesday: October 23

A quick word about the Presidential foreign policy debate the other day.

Mitt Romney said during that debate that our international influence hadn't increased since Obama took office.

Four years ago Americans couldn't travel outside of this country safely. Our own government advised that we pretend to be Canadian even in friendlier parts of Europe. We had become so disliked in the previous eight years that Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize just for not being George Bush.

I don't think Romney would be another George Bush, but we still have a lot more rebuilding to do before we start adopting policies that even resemble Republican tactics.
