National Journal Senior Political Columnist and Editorial Director Ron Fournier said that 2016 would be a “really tough” foreign policy election for Hillary Clinton, but that few Republicans had “articulately” made a case for a new foreign policy direction on Wednesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
“This is going to be a foreign policy election. I think it’s going to be really tough for Hillary, given her last job. Christie’s right, the president is fumbling down a hallway looking for the light. The problem for the Republicans so far, is none of them, except for maybe Rubio, has articulately made the case for what should be done other than Obama is a bad guy as well as Charles did a few minutes ago. Jeb Bush today had his big foreign policy speech, and rolled out a whole bunch of Bush advisors, didn’t tell us what he might have learned from the mistakes that were made going into Iraq, much less the mistakes that were made coming out of Iraq, and didn’t tell us what he would do with ISIS other than kill them” he stated.
