Foreign Policy and Parenting

I don’t agree with President Bush’s approach to most policy issues. But recently, I’ve been thinking about parenting a lot and I thought it might be funny to see what our commander-in-chief could teach us about parenting.

Spanking is a pretty big controversy. I personally think applying President Bush’s stance with Iran might be the strategy I choose:

This notion that the United States is getting ready to attack Iran is simply ridiculous. And having said that, all options are on the table. – President G. W. Bush from Brussels, Feb 22, 2005

And, of course, it’s important for your children to understand:

I’m the decider – President G. W. Bush, Feb 22, 2006

Or…we are the deciders, anyway.

Good stuff. With that and heat-seeking chancletas, we’re all set. Now I’m starting to realize that the president’s condescending tone was really him trying to be the nation’s loving yet stern disciplinarian. I can’t wait to elect a president who doesn’t treat us like children.
