Romney's Virgina speech on foreign policy was boilerplate content, with nods to the belligerent neoconservative wing of the Republican Party.

The last paragraph of the article linked to this post regarding Mitt's foreign policy plan says it all:

"All this might be a smart play for Romney. The first debate stopped his slide in the polls. His speech might have the effect of reassuring voters that Romney won’t swerve wildly from a foreign policy they generally like. What might be galling for Obama is that he can fairly look at a lot of Romney’s speech and say: I built that."

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery --so President Obama should be flattered that Mitt would continue his foreign policy strategy. Unfortunately, Mitt won't admit to stealing President Obama's strategy. His ego is so inflated that when a crowd that he and Paul Ryan were addressing began to cheer for Paul Ryan, Mitt interrupted and started doing his own cheerleading and corrected the crowd by yelling, "Romney-Ryan," "Romney-Ryan" until the crowd followed suit. The only difference between what President Obama is already doing and what Mitt is proposing would be in its application. Mitt is an egotistical bully. He's a "my way or the highway" kind of guy, and we don't need another war. The last thing this country needs is to be involved in yet another war.

Re-elect Obama-Biden 2012!

Noted. Susanne said the magic word, "bully." Willard will never find a way to discuss world matters with other world leaders when he takes this tone.
