All they do is nitpick and second guess and yet none of these amateurs has any foreign policy experience in anything, much less anything that could compete with being president of the United States for three years.

4. Does being able to see Russia from your back door count? Or how about electing a guy who never left
the country was an expert on foreign policies. Apparently that is all R's need to have in order to say they have foreign policy experience.

7. Really, very, very few candidates will have
foreign policy experience. A bit here or there perhaps, but there either a Governor or a Member of Congress will simply not have the opportunity to do so. I don't think party affiliation makes much difference in this case.

8. Why would they need any?
They could just say "keep doing what you were doing" and it would be a completely mainstream GOP foreign policy.

10. The teabaggers and the rest of their base don't value foreign policy experience anyway.
They just want repubs to go after health care, social programs and illegal immigrants. Don't need foreign policy experience to do that. :)

24. Republicans do not have to have FP experience. The NeoCons
will mentor them closely.

Just by repeating over and the idea that Republicans
are good on defense, they convinced people they are
strong and Democrats are weak on FP amd Defemse.

This is what happens when one party remains silent.
