I have mostly given up on Thomas Friedman at the NY Times, since he generally seems hopelessly out of touch. But he recently published a column talking about how America’s fiscal difficulties will force us to retrench in our foreign policy. We won’t be able to afford to be the world’s policeman going forward. Unless, of course, we bear down and make the tough decisions necessary to get our economy growing again. You know, entitlement reform, tax reform, etc. All the stuff our politicians seem unable to do. So let’s encourage them to start making the hard decisions that will enable America to keep kicking ass.
