Foreign policy of the final four in GOP race

Washington (CNN) - Foreign policy still lags far behind the discussion of domestic issues as the Republican candidates continue debating each other. But when it does arise, the final four candidates in the race seem to divide into two camps - intervene big time on one side, stay out of it on the other side.

"We have one candidate, Ron Paul, whose a principled noninterventionist, and then we have three candidates - Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum - that are all activist internationalists who want to use American power aggressively overseas to contest the perils they see," James Lindsay with the Council on Foreign Relations told CNN.

    They're all wrong. Each one of them seems to have arrived at their stance through knee jerk emotions.

    The primaries on super tuesday will be the final straw for some of these folks. So far, I see 3 jokers in a clown car, and 1 has common sense, but too bad he's not going that far. I guess with obama we already know what we've got, that means that I will stay with what I know i've got. Vote Democrat 2012 – no matter who it is – otherwise we are going to end up in another war – and the ows gang will be 'occupying' all the beaches in florida n.c / s.c / calif / and anywhere else on either coast, for that matter, not to mention they may end up occupying or building some type of huge igloo, up there in alaska, because of all the drilling they're going to do. I guess when you don't have any more manufacturing, or factories, drilling is the next thing, for Jobs.
