Leading from the front
New York Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/9/2012 5:35:00 AM

Mitt Romney traveled to the Virginia Military Institute yesterday — and took just 15 short minutes to shred the Obama-era first-term foreign-policy legacy. It’s “the responsibility of [the] president to use America’s great power to shape history, not to lead from behind, leaving our destiny at the mercy of events,” he said. Russia, China and other powers have hastened to fill the vacuum created by Obama policies, whose guiding principle — if there is one — has been to diminish America’s global footprint. Obama apparently believes this makes for a peaceful world — but four years of growing chaos suggest otherwise.

It's not just amazing but in fact damning that no one in a significant position openly challenged the absurd concept of "leading from behind". The elites merely accepted it as a brilliant, nuanced concept. The fact is that leaders lead. And they do it by boldly bring up front, willing to accept criticisms and occasional losses.

Mitt Romney is a leader. Barack Obama isn't. And America can only retake its position as a world leader with Mitt Romney as President.

Foreign policy??? What policy???

President Romney is a leader. He's deceive, engaged, and not afraid of making tough decisions.....

He'll be a wonderful President....and his wife will bring honor and dignity back to the title of First Lady.

I caught a portion of the speech in which Gov Romney said that he, like the Prseident, wants democracy, peace, etc in the Middle East (I paraphrase).

One trait about Gov Romney I do not like is his willingness (eagerness?) to accord to Obama the best of intentions. He's a nice guy in over his head, etc. Obama is not a nice guy, he is in over his head but he is also deliberately being destructive of this country that he despises. Obama is a punk, a serial liar, etc and Gov Romney needs to realize that sooner rather than later. Yes, I know - Gov Romney has to be careful about not picking on poor ol Obama.

Any bets that this was not a set up for the debate? The Choomster's people are no doubt pouring over the speech coming up with snarky comebacks when Romney says it again.

Romney's people know how flat footed the opposition is. Feed them enough lines to open the door, then hit them with what wasn't said.

The chain of command can be pulled from the front in the direction it needs to go -- it cannot be pushed from behind! Pushing a chain produces nothing but a pile of tangled links.

Only a moron deprived of oxygen (re Gore on Denver?) would coin a phrase such as "leading from behind" (oxymoron).

Obama's leadership style is more akin to "head in behind".

It tweaks me as well #10, actually it p*$%'s me off as well, however, think about the reactions of the Regime's Eunuchs if he was to be completely honest. Please forgive the use of the word 'nuanced', but that is what is needed when smacking down the Empty Chair lest he be ripped apart and called everything but a Child of God. Mitt was spectacular yesterday, he spoke the truth, and smacked the Man Child down with a smile.

The speech would have made Reagan proud.
Mitt Romney will make an honorable Commander in Chief who puts the needs of the military and our country above himself.
Something that has been sorely lacking the past four years.
As the father of a soldier , I find it unconscionable
and derelict that Obama refused to take his daily national security briefings
when he had thousands upon thousands
of men and women at war.
On the days when he put down the tv remote
and turned off the NBA package,
Obama would just read a Cliff's Notes type
of briefing on an iPad.
According to Michelle, they faithfully watch SportsCenter
every day in the gym.
SportsCenter trumped his PDB.
My son returned safely from Afghanistan .
1500 other soldiers and Marines have not ..in just the past 45 months.
This is an outrageous and scandalous statistic when you consider how lightly Obama took his Constitutional duty
as Commander in Chief.

Made the mistake of listening to NPR for classical music in my car. They stated; that Mitt chose a very flashy venue filled with flags and white suits to rip the president on his foreign policy, of which Mitt has a very poor record as shown this summer. He entered the venue to a crisp rendition of a military march (my recollection of what the announcer said.) Gave up on trying to find some classical music and turned off the radio.

As a vet and a Navy wife, Obama MUST go. It's disgraceful how he is gutting the military, how every three months we're all sitting on edge to make sure that Congress will keep paying the military, and how he just doesn't care. My husband received a chain email that I thought had a good point: new requirement for president, must also be a vet. Considering what we've seen with Obama, that's looking like a better and better idea.

Like so many other "progressives", liberals, leftists, dims and whatever you wish to call them, Obozo simply doesn't understand that the world is a dangerous place. Throughout the history of mankind, there has always been those who wish to impose their will on others. For a host of reasons, or for no reason at all except that they can. And the only way to avoid that happening or throw it out if it does happen, is to have a strong military force and the will to use it when the time arises. And the sense to know just when to use it. Obozo doesn't fit the bill. Does Romney? We really don't know at this point, but we do know that he will be head and shoulders above Obozo.

While reading this article, I couldn't help but wonder just how George Patton would have handled this.

Romney is on a roll. What this is starting to look like is Romney's October surprise. Mitt may have known all along that he could destroy Obama with conservatism. But I now believe he chose to wait until October. It's working because he's surging now just weeks prior to the election. Hopefully things stay that way.

U.S. President Barack Obama ended a four-nation foreign trip on Saturday in the same situation as he began it - facing great uncertainty about a diplomatic way out of the Ukraine crisis. His diplomatic consultations in The Hague, Brussels and Rome over the past week all resulted in a strong show of unity between the United States and Europe that Russia must face consequences should it move against southern or eastern Ukraine. But it remains an open question whether the European allies would be able to stomach the kind of crippling sanctions required to significantly undermine Russia´s economy since some of their

Just as supporters of the Affordable Care Act were celebrating the news that the law’s new health insurance exchanges had enrolled 6 million Americans—below the initial 7 million target for the first year, but not shabby given the technical fiascos last fall—comes a reminder of how far we still have to go before the law comes close to achieving its purpose. Gallup has released the results of a 2013 survey asking Americans whether they “did not have enough money to pay for the healthcare and/or medicine they and their families needed.” The eye-opening results are, essentially, a final snapshot of

Democratic Vice President Joe Biden is running for president, and he’s eager to ingratiate himself with every political constituency, flatter every donor and pander to every ethnic group between now and the 2016 nomination. Biden is best known for his many gaffes and smears. In August 2012, he told African-Americans that GOP policies “are going to put y’all back in chains.” These days, he’s trying eyewash, sycophancy, fawning and even blarney. “Eleven million undocumented aliens are already Americans, in my view,” he told a group of American employers, whom he assumed would empathize with unknown, low-skill foreigners merely because they share the

Weeds and rubble cover 90 acres along Long Island Sound. A room with cinder-block walls sits locked in an empty in Brooklyn basement. And a gleaming industrial palace has failed to bring jobs to the banks of Ohio´s Mahoning River. These are monuments to failed central planning. Eminent domain, state and local subsides, and federal-corporate partnerships have yielded these lifeless fruits, failing to deliver the rebirth, community benefits and jobs they promise — but succeeding in delivering profits to the companies that lobby for them.

Today’s quiz: What do Vladimir Putin’s aggression and ObamaCare’s troubles have in common? OK, that was too easy.

Obama’s sixth year in the White House is shaping up as his worst, and that’s saying something. He’s been in the Oval Office so long that it is obscene to blame his problems

Senkivka, Ukraine -- They know Russian tanks would make short work of their ramshackle defenses and shallow trenches. But with U.S. and Europe shrinking from the fight, this rag-tag band of civilian volunteers know they could be the first, last and only line of defense if Moscow rolls into this corner of northeast Ukraine. "We can´t expect help from anybody else. Our own government is too passive. But hopefully we can rely on support from ordinary Ukrainians," Vladimir Fedorok told CNN on a blustery morning close to the Ukrainian border village of Senkivka. In more peaceful times, Fedorok runs a farm supplies

For conservatives, the story of the Obama years has been the depressing spectacle of Republicans fighting a rearguard action covering their retreat from a Democratic agenda backed by superior numbers. Republicans began the Obama administration with effectively no leverage: Barack Obama in the White House, Nancy Pelosi in the speaker’s chair, and Harry Reid running the Senate. The outcome of that was the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, the worst domestic defeat for the cause of limited government in a generation. The 2010 congressional elections gave Republicans some relief in the form of a House majority empowered to contain

Democrats are going into the 2014 midterm elections with their control of the Senate greatly imperiled and with the prospect of an Obama presidency completely hobbled in its final two years. In response, the president and his party are struggling to come up with a broad economic message that can rebut, or at least deflect, the continued GOP assaults on the president and his new health-care law. Thus far, what they have produced is a smaller, more targeted approach — one that seeks to gin up the enthusiasm that has been lacking in key parts of their base, but that

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article.

With high school seniors and their families now deciding where to enroll for college next fall, they might want to take a gander at research showing the best -- and worst -- values for a degree. The shocker in a survey by PayScale, a research firm that focuses on compensation, is that there are schools where students would have been better off not attending. Why? The 20-year net return on their college investment amounts to a financial loss, even when financial aid is included. Taking the time to get and spend money on a degree, in short, means you might actually find yourself in a financial hole. The survey may add to parents' doubts about

"Noah" is a brilliant, compelling, beautifully-mounted, beautifully-acted piece of storytelling conceived for the sinister purpose of leading people to believe that Christianity and Judaism are something they are not. (Snip) What does matter, though, is The Message. The Message is everything. And this is where Aronofsky is the snake in the garden. Using a $135 million, he and Paramount have brilliantly and deviously disguised the Pagan god Gaia as the God of the Old Testament … as THE God.
