    Though the so-called "MSM" is routinely characterized around here as left-leaning liberals hell-bent on electing Barack Obama again, it seems as though the Wall Street Journal has given Romney space to explain his foreign policy in the Op-Ed pages. Maybe the WSJ isn't "mainstream," right?

    But, be that as it may...Romney spends about 2/3rds of this criticizing Obama (his stock in trade), then offers up some unspecific platitudes about restoring the "three sinews of our influence: our economic strength, our military strength and the strength of our values."

    Naturally, he doesn't say much about HOW he'll do that, other than selling our collective souls to Israel.

    Nothing new here once again. Handed a national and international stage on which to present his ideas, he's once again failed to take advantage of it. Just one more opportunity to be specific on his policy goals which he's ignored.

    One begins to wonder if he even HAS any specifics.

    See how lucky Obama is that Al Qaeda executed Chris Stevens and didn't hold him hostage? Hostages require reporting, a dead Ambassador is just a big bump swept under the rug

    Ya think Obama egging on the Muslim Brotherhood and Ahmadinejad is helping in the Middle East?

    Obama is a big fan of the Muslim Brotherhood and Arab Spring and he spoke at the UN when he knew full well they were having Ahmadinjed speak there on Yom Kippur...that's egging them on

    He was damned no matter what he did I guess. :dunno:

    Last week he was a dick for going on The View instead of going to NY for the UN.
