Romney endorses Obama’s foreign policy
The Kansas City Star
In tonight’s presidential debate, with a few exceptions, Mitt Romney endorsed President Obama’s foreign policy…but said he’d do it better.
Never mind that he disagreed with running mate Paul Ryan’s assertion that a fixed date for withdrawing from Afghanistan is a bad idea. Never mind that he now says going after Osama bin Laden was the right call when he previously said it wasn’t worth moving heaven and earth to get him.
Which raises the question: Obama has done so well, why take a chance on a man who can’t seem to stick to a position. Do we really think foreign leaders haven’t heard Romney’s contradictions?
At times, Romney sounded like a man running for the Nobel Peace Prize. Honestly, I never understood why they gave it to Obama, and since both men like the drone attacks, it seems unlikely the Nobel committee will honor either one of them anytime soon.
Instant polls after the debate suggest Obama won the debate by a slim margin, but the debate changed few minds. The neocons have to wonder where their guy went, but they’d vote for a ham sandwich before they’d vote for Obama, so the debate won’t matter.
