Now It's Scott Walker's Turn

Despite recent posts on Jim Webb and Marco Rubio, I didn't plan on spending much time discussing the 2016 presidential candidates. However, more and more stories about them are popping up in the mainstream media. I usually just give them a quick scan, but every once in a while something catches my eye. In this case, it was a few quotes on foreign affairs by Scott Walker.
Walker saw no need for diplomatic niceties in response to the Iran nuclear deal that President Barack Obama announced last week with Tehran: He would terminate it as soon as possible and persuade U.S. allies to join Washington in imposing more crippling economic sanctions on Tehran.

"This is not a country we should be doing business with," he said... "This is one of the leading state sponsors of terrorism."

Walker would also be more confrontational with both Russia over its aggression against Ukraine and against China, for the territorial pressures Beijing is putting on U.S. allies in the South China Sea.

He would dramatically increase U.S. military spending after budget cuts that have drawn complaints from military officials.

"The United States needs a foreign policy that puts steel in the face of our enemies," Walker says.
Can't argue with that.

The only question is, will it be too little, too late?

Only Republican that stirs even a flicker of enthusiasm in me.
