The big takeaway from the Romney foreign policy speech on October 8 is that there’s no big takeaway. The Republican presidential candidate’s foreign policy speech does not lay out any coherent foreign policy. Amidst the platitudes and vague generalities, the implied bellicosity and patriotic sentimentalities, there’s no sense of proportion, no sense of scale, little indication of priorities, and no […]

(This article was originally credited to Bob Morris when the actual author was William Boardman. Our apologies.) Early Tuesday evening, Vermont Public Radio, (VPR) put out a story about the Romney campaign challenging absentee balloting in Vermont, and got it badly wrong.

Romney is still the one to beat, for sure. Many say Huntsman can’t win because he’s too moderate. Maybe, but don’t count him out. He moves between all the levels of the different political strata effortlessly, is low-key, likeable, and seems to be aided by as yet unseen forces. What people are saying about him […]
From the discussions on our podcast last night: Bachmann did well in the Republican debate because she was non-wacko and thus surprised many. However, Romney is still the frontrunner.
