With the economy still in tatters, the 2012 election has been laser focused on how candidates plan on fixing it. While nobody would argue that this shouldn’t be a critical point in the upcoming election, something arguably more important was been overlooked.
After the recent Iranian sponsored assasination attempt of the Saudi Arabian ambassador to America, foreign policy could jump to the forefront, and rightfully so. After years and months of seemingly worthless sanctions that were too soft to stop GE from doing business with Iran, the situation in Persia is getting scary.
John Huntsman has already demonstrated his willingness to be decisive and stop Iran from becoming a nuclear power, something we’ll never see from Obama.
Who of the prospective candidates do you trust the most with foreign affairs? Cain and Romney have positioned themselves on their economic knowledge and experience. The moderate Huntsman has come out with a bold and decisive stand. Rick Santorum has carved out his niche as the social conservative with the toughest stance on issues like this. Ron Paul said Iran can have a nuke if they want, while Bachman said she would do whatever she could to prevent it from happening. Who do you think stands to gain the most if this issue grows as the campaigns continue?
