The same people who touted Barack Obama's "mud hut diplomacy" eight years ago will pounce next year on Republican Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin's inexperience in foreign affairs.
But unlike President Obama, Governor Walker gets it.
Campaigning in Concord, New Hampshire, for president on Saturday, Governor Walker said: "Radical Islamic terrorism is like a virus and if you don't take it out entirely, it's like a virus in your computer, it will keep coming back."
If you dismiss a group as JVs, that does not make them JVs.
It makes you one.
Governor Walker is no JV. He said: "I believe increasingly, in light of what's happened in the last six or seven months, I believe there are partners in the coalition we can draw on from the Arab world, like Jordan, like Egypt, because of what's happened to their citizens and have a true coalition force."
When was the last time Secretary of State John Kerry said anything nice about President Sisi of Egypt or King Abdullah II of Jordan? Does he even know who they are? Maybe if they said something about global warming.
You know, the biggest threat to the world.
