[T]he question each of you will face, is not whether America will lead but how we will lead, not just to secure our peace and prosperity but also extend peace and prosperity around the globe.Translation: US will continue to use force overseas to remake the world in the neocon and "humanitarian" interventionists' image. But, considering the results of each and every intervention over the past 14 years, where is the "peace and prosperity" he promises. Afghanistan? Iraq? Libya? Syria? Ukraine? Mali?
Just as we should repudiate Junk English in economics, we should demand precision when it comes to the language of political posturing! In other words, we should insist that politicians use defined terms (I’m not holding my breath).
