We Must Not Choose Obama Lite: Courageous Foreign Policy Leadership Must Define GOP Nominee

A number of people have contacted me voicing their concern that my coming out against Mitt Romney by signing onto the Not Mitt Romney pledge isn’t helpful. Their argument is that we must ensure that Obama is not re-elected. I agree. America is at a serious crossroads.

If Mitt Romney nabs the nomination as Republican candidate for President of the United States, I will support him with every breath of my body. That said, Obama Lite is not the answer. Obama Lite will not defeat Obama. In the lead-up to the primaries, we should fight for a candidate with the most principled values. Political will and courage is what we are in dire need of.

John Bolton was my candidate. He didn’t run.

Rudolph Giuliani was next in line for me. He didn’t run.

Sarah Palin had my vote. She didn’t run.

Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, and Michele Bachmann are next.

Rick Perry? Please. I questioned his very bad judgment when I exposed his entire Islamic curriculum, dawah and proselytizing, to Texas school children. To this day he has never come clean about that. And the fact that he was Al Gore’s manager does not bode well.

Perry is a snake. Watch him. He is creepy. And his freak show speech in New Hampshire recently belonged in a Roger Corman film.

For freedom lovers and great American patriots, national security and foreign policy are among the top issues, if not the most important issues in the presidential race of 2012 — particularly after the rout that Obama’s disastrous presidency has wreaked on American hegemony in his wildly chaotic post-American world.

Rick Santorum is best in show on this issue. He has been consistent for years on his opposition to the Iranian mullahcracy’s pursuit of genocidal nuclear weapons. He is singular on this. I hope people are paying attention. Santorum got a huge standing ovation at the Florida State tea party convention that I spoke at last Saturday. While I disagree with him on a number of domestic issues, they run a distant second to our safety and security.

And according to ABC News, Michele Bachmann said last Wednesday that she was “troubled that American judges would cite sharia law in U.S. courtrooms and that the practice would ‘usurp’ the U.S. Constitution.”

Finally, a candidate who isn’t afraid to say that A is A. Bachmann nails it. I expect the leftist/Islamic machine to tear her to shreds.

Kudos to Michele Bachmann for taking this principled stance against the most radical, misogynist, extreme ideology on the planet, the brutal Islamic law. I applaud her. She scores big on this issue, as the other candidates are like little girls when it comes to this critical point. She was also the only candidate to sign the anti-sharia pledge. She bounces big with me on this.

The two most overlooked candidates, Bachmann and Santorum, are head and shoulders above the field on the issues most critical to the nation at this historic juncture: foreign policy, Iran, Israel, national security and the economy, of course.

They should be polling better. I expect that to change.

The struggle for the nomination is now. And I am so sick and tired of the enemedia and the subversive left destroying our most effective leaders on the right in their attempt to make them unelectable, all the while exalting vacuous vassals like Obama. They tried to do it to Reagan. They destroyed George W. Bush. They think they have done it to Sarah Palin, and now they are working on doing it to Herman Cain.

Not so fast, destroyers.

If they think they are going to pick our candidate this time (as they did with McCain in ’08), they are in for a very rude surprise. Not. This. Time. We cannot let our domestic enemies define our leaders. We cannot let our domestic enemies destroy our most effective voices on the right. You must have seen by now that the more rational, the more effective, the more patriotic a Republican leader is, the more he or she is marginalized, ridiculed, destroyed.

This must stop, and we must stop it. The perspective and agenda that the chattering class, the media elites and their tools, are advancing will shatter in the face of reality.

The daggers are out for Herman Cain now. A conservative black man who actually got where he ist on hard work and smarts, not affirmative action like the demagogue in the White House, Cain is a liberal’s nightmare. Obama may be slick, but Cain is real. The flogging he is getting over the sexual harassment allegations would be laughable if the media were not so dangerous. We sat back and watched the William Jefferson Clinton cigar and stain show. As if that weren’t enough, he allegedly raped Juanita Broaddrick, sexually attacked Kathleen Willey, and dropped his pants and told Paula Jones to “kiss it.”

Presidential candidate John Edwards was having a torrid affair while his wife was dying from cancer, and the National Enquirer was talking about it for a year while the enemedia saw no evil and spoke no evil. It was only after his mistress gave birth and he was snapped cooing with boo boo in the hospital that the story made the national news.

So we are supposed to believe the media’s moral indignation over Cain’s alleged misbehavior?

This is not going to fly, and neither is a RINO. As for the Republican old guard, they better get out of the way. I signed onto the NotMittRomney team because we are vetting our candidates now, and Obama Lite is not going to save the free world.

America is awake for the first time in a long time. The Republican nominee should not be Mitt Romney, and the nominee must not be chosen by the left and their handmaidens in the corrupt and criminally negligent media.

We are going for a patriot this time. A smart, fierce, brave lover of America. Courageous and brave.

Then the war for the soul of this nation will begin in earnest.
