Rick Perry Channels Sarah Palin On Foreign Policy

Texas Governor Rick Perry made a decent speech today to the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention in San Antonio, with a lot to say about avoiding foreign interventions without clear goals.

“I do not believe that America should fall subject to a foreign policy of military adventurism. We should only risk shedding American blood and spending American treasure when our vital interests are threatened and we should always look to build coalitions among the nations to protect the mutual interests of freedom loving people,” Perry told thousands of veterans today.

“It’s not our interest to go it alone. We respect our allies, and we must always seek to engage them in military missions. At the same time, we must be willing to act when it is time to act. We cannot concede the moral authority of our nation to multi-lateral debating societies, and when our interests are threatened American soldiers should be led by American commanders.”

“A president should never send our sons and daughters into war without a plan to win and the resources to make that possible,” Perry said. “It’s a dangerous world that we live in today. Our enemies often don’t wear uniforms or swear allegiance to a particular flag but instead to an ideology of hatred. As the 10th anniversary of the attacks of 911 approach, we must renew our commitment to taking the fight to the enemy wherever they are before they strike at home.”

Yes, a decent speech. In fact, I thought so before, when I heard almost exactly the same thing from Governor Sarah Palin.....almost four months ago, practically word for word in some places, in a speech she gave at Colorado Christian College.

I'm glad to see that Rick Perry's listening and picking up a few pointers.

please helps me write more gooder!
