Romney vs. Obama

Mitt Romney and Barack Obama


Mitt Romney made a lot of foreign policy statements when a candidate for the presidency of the USA in 2012 that the winner, Barack Obama, disagreed with.  On many, who was right according to Politico?

January 17, 2015

“The results of the Hillary Clinton-Barack Obama foreign policy have been devastating,” Romney declared at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting in San Diego on Friday. “The world is not safer.”  … “Romney was right about the world getting more complicated,” said Mieke Eoyang, director of the National Security Project at the moderate Democratic think tank Third Way. “But a complicated world doesn’t mean a more simplistic response, which is what Romney was offering.”

Back in 2012, President Barack Obama was less charitable. “You haven’t been in a position to actually execute foreign policy,” Obama told Romney in an October debate. “But every time you’ve offered an opinion, you’ve been wrong.” More than two years later, however, hindsight suggests that’s not true. Romney offered warnings on several major issues that now appear prescient. On Iraq, for instance, Romney told an audience in November 2011 that America’s withdrawal from the country the prior year was “an enormous mistake,” one that “puts at risk many of the victories that were hard-won by the men and women who have served there.” Obama later scoffed at his rival’s claim that the U.S. should have maintained a long-term troop presence in Iraq. Two years later, Obama has ordered thousands of troops back there to prevent the country’s collapse.

Putin’s annexation of Crimea and his intervention in eastern Ukraine dominated much of last year for Obama. But as early as December 2011 Romney called Putin ”a real threat to the stability and peace of the world,” noting that the Russian president’s rhetoric had been growing sharper.

After Romney later called Russia America’s top “geopolitical foe,” blocking U.S. interests at the United Nations and elsewhere, Obama openly ridiculed him: “The 1980s are calling to ask for their foreign policy back,” the president told Romney in an October 2012 debate. “You know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.” Romney also cast repeated doubt on Obama’s claim that, after Osama bin Laden’s killing, al Qaeda was “on the run.”

He warned about the spread of radical Islam in the Middle East and North Africa. “This is a group that is now involved in 10 or 12 countries, and it presents an enormous threat … and we must have a comprehensive strategy to help reject this kind of extremism,” Romney said. That characterization of the Islamist threat seems more apt as extremist violence surges around the world. Beyond the emotional satisfaction of saying “I told you so,” people close to Romney argue that the 2012 record positions the former Massachusetts governor well for his third straight White House bid.

Whether or not Mitt Romney again runs for the USA presidency, there have been disturbing foreign policy positions from the Obama Administration.

While foreign policy is one thing, there are other issues.  The morning after Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney for the US presidency, on November 7, 2012, I posted the following:

I believe the USA is going down a path where its primary direction will not be one of improvement. The voters of the USA decided, overall, to go down a similar path, which likely means more debt, more moral decline, more regulation, and continued periodic governmental gridlock.  And those who pay the disproportionate share of the taxes in the United States will be expected to pay more taxes, and probably starting in several weeks. That being said, let me state that Barack Obama is not the final Antichrist like some on the internet have claimed.

Yes, I do believe that Barack Obama is “apocalyptic,” meaning that he has and will take steps that will lead to the destruction of the United States–although I do not believe that the great tribulation will begin until AFTER his next term ends.  Also, perhaps it needs to be made clear that I also was not an endorser of Mormon Mitt Romney (see, for example, Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils is Still not Good, Romney and Obama on ‘Social Issues’, and US Presidential Election Tomorrow: Pray and Fast) and did not believe he would be able to lead the USA away from its accelerating path to destruction.  …

Habakkuk 2 makes clear that at the appointed time of the end, a great borrowing people will be destroyed (Habakkuk 2:3-8).  Something similar is in Deuteronomy 28:42-51.  No nation in the history of humankind has ever accumulated as much debt as the United States of America (because the U.K. may have close to the highest amount of per capita debt, its fate would seem to be similar).  Yet, the relationship between debt accumulation and prophesied destruction remains unapparent to many. And although President Obama inherited a debt-laden nation, his policies, according to his own public pronouncements, have lead and will continue to lead to greatly increased U.S.A. debt.  These increases of debt are likely to continue past the point of no return and become one of the final factors that will cause creditors to rise up and destroy the U.S.A.

As far as debt goes, the day Barack Obama I reported that, the total US Federal Debt was as follows according to the US Treasury:

Date Debt Held by the Public Intragovernmental Holdings Total Public Debt Outstanding
11/07/2012 11,394,949,129,703.35 4,819,032,999,503.96 16,213,982,129,207.31

The same source lists the following as the current debt level (1/15/15 is the latest date it lists for):

Date Debt Held by the Public Intragovernmental Holdings Total Public Debt Outstanding
01/15/2015 12,971,949,359,465.79 5,107,659,036,053.90 18,079,608,395,519.69

The deficits have gone up more under the Obama Administration than any in USA history. And the above only counts the admitted federal debt. The USA is the most indebted nation in the history of humanity.

As far as moral decline, after Barack Obama decided to no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), and the basic result is that most states in the USA now allow homosexual marriages.  Barack Obama also took steps to assist the sales of the intoxicating drug marijuana, to mention just two.

As far as gridlock goes, the USA has had a type of political gridlock which has prevented serious deficit control, as well as an inability to address many other serious issues facing that country.

As far as foreign policy goes, I put the following in a book that came out in January 2013:

Barack Hussein Obama…his administration will help lead to the rise of the future King of the South who is mentioned in end time Bible prophecy. …

Furthermore, the Bible predicts that at the appointed time, a King of the North and a King of the South with rise (Daniel 11:27,39-40)…

Barack Obama…would be expected to support greater union amongst the Europeans and greater union amongst some of the Islamic peoples…Barack Obama is enabling the rise of the final Antichrist.

And yes, Barack Obama has taken steps that are enabling the rise of the kings of the North and South of biblical prophecy, as well as the final Antichrist (e.g. ‘Climate change’ objectives and other shared goals of Pope Francis and Barack Obama).

However, if Mitt Romney ever were to be elected USA president, so would he.
