- Romney’s Counterproductive European Tour
…I continue to doubt the utility of this trip. Few Americans are dissatisfied with Barack Obama’s foreign policy, and few want—or need—Romney to articulate an alternative. Romney should take advantage of this fact, not the least because his actual foreign policy positions are either nonsensical—“Russia is our number one geopolitical foe”—or dangerously belligerent. The more Romney mentions foreign policy, the more he risks an attack from the Obama campaign, which can easily tout the administration’s foreign policy accomplishments.
