Jed Babbin: Obama losing the world to win re-election

It is a truism in politics that people vote their wallets. But despite the perceived winding-down of United States involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, foreign policy remains of paramount importance for our nation's security. While we may not be able to convince may Americans to consider foreign policy in their voting decisions, it's good to have the facts if you want to try.

One person who never forgets any of this, and never forgets that in the realm of foreign policy our current president is perhaps an even bigger failure than he is on domestic policy, is my friend and former editor Jed Babbin, who served as a Deputy Undersecretary of Defense under George H.W. Bush.

For today's intellectual ammunition, I offer you Jed's article in the American Spectator, "Losing the World to Win Reelection."
