Experts Pan Romney’s Foreign Policy Speech
“There’s absolutely nothing in this speech. This is a repackaging of language that has been a staple of Romney’s campaign since he threw his hat in the ring,” said James Lindsay of the Council on Foreign Relations. “If Romney has a foreign policy strategy, he still has not told us what it is. The governor is very fond of saying hope is not a strategy, but that cuts both ways. He didn’t answer two key questions: what he would do differently and why we should expect what he would to work.”
…While Republicans and many of Romney’s foreign policy advisers frequently mock Obama and his team for believing that he could transform America’s standing in the world through the power of his personality and the change he represented from President George W. Bush, Romney indulged in a bit of that thinking himself Monday.
