Jim Gilmore on Foreign Policy
Senate challenger 2008; previously Republican Governor (VA)
GILMORE: Because of Obama and Clinton policies, the US is moving further and further into a decline. I want to reverse that decline. That's why I've entered this race, and I think I have the experience to do it. Former elected prosecutor, attorney general, governor, I was elected to all of those offices. A person who, in fact, has a long experience in foreign policy issues. I was an Army intelligence agent and a veteran during the Cold War, assigned to West Germany. I was the chairman of the National Commission on Homeland Security and Terrorism for five years. I dealt extensively with these homeland security issues. I was a governor during the 9/11 attack. I understand both of these issues, how to build the economy and doing that as a governor who'd built jobs, had cut taxes and also a governor who understands foreign policy, and that's why I entered this race.
A: Yes, this is a concern because we need others to further freedom and security in the world.
Q: How can it be rectified without disavowing our foreign policy?
A: We need to let people across the world know that we have their interests at heart, as we did during the Cold War. This helps American interests.
