Three thoughts. First, you’re totally trying to escape the broader issues. Second, if one accepted this logic at face value, then a president could never articulate anything useful on foreign policy in public, since the rest of us ain’t going to be briefed on these matters anytime soon.
Third, I am 100% in agreement with Mr. Cain: he hasn’t the faintest clue what to do when it comes to American foreign policy.
Am I missing anything? Seriously, is there anything Cain has written that displays anything resembling an understanding of how foreign policy works?
