Republican and Democrat presidents have both squandered US dominance. Anybody who thinks differently doesn't read history. 1. Clinton was not a Republican and he brought China into the World Trade Organization, in 2000. He promised it would bring democracy to China and create millions of US export jobs. The opposite happened. One man is now dictator over more people than any man in history. Millions of US jobs were sent to China for cheap telephones, computers and blue jeans. China is now a global threat to US security. This was the single biggest blunder of the post Cold War world. The second biggest blunder was Clinton not killing bin Laden when he had the chance. US Intelligence knew where bin Laden was located in 1998, Clinton had the opportunity to kill him with cruise missiles. He backed down because of possible civilian casualties. The World Trade Center was destroyed instead. Thousands of Americans in and out of uniform died. Trillions were wasted in the Mid-East 2. Bush Jr. was a Republican. He thought he could bring democracy to the Mid-East and wasted those trillions. The region is more balkanized than ever. How can you democratize people who like to kill one another and will wait until you go home at start again? 3. Obama was not a Republican. He thought he could negotiate a nuclear deal with the Iranians after the Europeans tried and failed for a dozen years. Obama's idea of success was to give them what they wanted in the first place--access to the bomb. He gave them $150 billion in cash to boot. Iran is now the principle backer of chaos in the Mid-East. Trump is smarter than these three. He killed off the ISIS Caliphate, has declared mission accomplished and wants to let everyone go back to killing each other. He was also smart enough to back energy independence at home.
