*Side Note* – It’s more than a little annoying, albeit profoundly predictable, that MSM leftist punditry ask the question “what are your foreign policy credentials?”
I would hope that sooner or later a direct and well spoken candidate would specifically say:
“Credentials? First, I’m an American; I grew up an American; I learned, live, eat, breathe, and love America; I’m proud of America; I believe America is the greatest free societal and free-market construct ever created in the history of all modern nations….
…..and as a direct consequence I’m an expert in evaluating all foreign influences against what is in the best interests of freedom generally, and our American best interests specifically’….
…..perhaps you have a question about a substantive foreign issue I might be able to answer for you from this perspective?” !!
There would be splodey heads.
