#2 reason to vote for McCain/Palin
NObama's foreign policy inexperience really came through when Russia invaded Georgia. His instincts are hesitant and wimpish.
To wit: when Russia invaded, NObama released a statement condemning the "outbreak of violence" and urging both sides to show "restraint." A sorry response. An "outbreak suggests there was no agency behind the war. That it simply sprung into being. Not so. Russia invaded. Russia was responsible. And it was Russia, not the defeated Georgians, which needed--and still needs--to show "restraint."
McCain did not equivocate. He called Russia what it is--the aggressor in an unjustified war. And he was unafraid to express solidarity with a fellow democracy, saying, "We are all Georgians."
As time passed, NObama began to sound more like McCain. Occasionally he emerged from his vacation quarters in Hawaii and ratchet up the rhetoric. In a later statement, NObama said there was no justification for Russia's actions. He called on Russia to end the violence immediately. He supported economic aid to Georgia to help reconstruction.
On Georgia, the differences between the two candidates grew smaller and smaller. And soon only one difference remained. McCain had been there first.
