“I will not agree with Mitt on all issues...but BY GOD, this man loves America”

What a stunning contrast to Obama’s suffocating anti-Americanism and constant political pandering.

LOL -— Fox commentator called him “President.” That slip is beginning to happen more frequently.

Some of it is pie in the sky..for example..Egypt is lost....

No one blamed Reagan for losing Iran!

So i am not worried about it hurting Mitt on election day, but it is sad that Egypt has been lost to the crazies...

If Obummer supproted the revolution in Iran in 2009 I don;t think Egypt would be as Lost as it is today.

God bless that piccolo player doing ‘Stars and Stripes’. I’ve played that many times and it’s NOT easy. LOL!

Love that song and the band sound great!

Giving this speech gets Romney’s position on the record before Bob Shieffer tries to control the “debate” on foreign policy.

Earlier in the day, while puttering about, I heard something about a speech, something about Virginia, something about at Military school and foreign policy.

I figgered with all this hype that it was the President going to speak. All morning, advertising and going to cover this speech.

Hand to God I sit down and figure, well dag, Obama’s going to speak at a military school and so soon after he looked like the bafoon he is with that debate? I gotta see this.

Coulda fell off my chair when it was Romney!

It was Fox, true, but man I don’t recall a presidential contender getting such a sober lead up.

So for the heck of it I flipped to CNN. THEY COVERED THE SPEECH IN FULL AS WELL!!

I dunno what this means. If anything.

It’s like....Romney’s the leader now, we must capture his words. If this makes any sense.

Romney was masterful, he said that the current administration is misleading and misled with that silly movie riot story.

I couldn’t have changed a thing.

I listened carefully, and to your point about our policy on the Syrian situation, he said he would find out who in the Assad opposition we can work with, and support THEM. He specifically mentioned in the speech that al qaeda is on the move in Libya, Syria and other places.

He pointed out that Assad is an Iranian puppet. I think this is a good point. To sit back and let Syria deteriorate into what it has, doing nothing, is not the best course. He pointed out that Syrians with better intentions than Assad OR al qaeda are angry and saddened that America has done nothing as they are slaughtered by the thousands.

What he seemed to say is, we need to be on the side of people who do want something better for themselves in their countries, NOT that we should choose between Assad and al qaeda (which basically means choosing NOTHING) while everyone else is slaughtered.

Good luck Mitt, getting our “allies” to spend MORE on defense..

Yes, they've had a free ride for so long and spent too much on socialism - don't see how they're going to want to cough up for their own defense. But still, I agree with the idea.

Have you ever heard the story of Meredith Wilson (the Music Man? He played piccolo in Sousa's Band.
The two piccolo players came forward to front of stage for their soli. There they were greeted by a VERY large woman in the front row. When they took their instruments to lips she lifted an oversize pair of binoculars pointing it at them. Wilson said the band had to play through the proceeding section three times before they could stop laughing and play their part..... Can't listen to it played without thinking of his experience. Wonderful speaker,so many great stories.

I think this Mitt Romney actually wants to be our president!

He's getting intelligence briefings now also so nobody can accuse him of speaking out of school. The Democrats won't dare bring this up because they know that Obama has been SKIPPING many of his intelligence briefings.

What a contrast from four years ago. Did John McCain give any foreign policy speeches like this when he was running?

Thanks! I didn't hear the speech but will watch it later on C-Span.

My view is that while Assad may be a devil, he is the devil we know. As bad as he may be, he does try to take some care of women, ethnic and religious minorities. Yes, he is receiving support from the Iranians but given the loss of Egypt as an American friend, might there be an opportunity here to take a pragmatic approach of putting the past in the past and winning Assad over from the Iranians and Russians? Carter for all his flaws did it with Sadat and that worked out fairly well until hussein came along.

Rush is correct. It was dignified, quietly superior and full of smarts. I guess the thing I always get when I listen to him is- he loves America.

There were telepromters on the stage and he MAY have used them. But it was hard to tell because he made eye contact WITH the audience.

He used the word FAIL as a lead into each area of the ME that BO has or could have had an influence. Iran, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Isreal....ANd then in his conclusion. Very well done...well written.

A cousin of mine was in the Reagan administration & had a lot to do with foreign policy - he's a published author quite a few times over on the subject. We had occasion to talk via email about Romney recently & this is what he said:

"Romney is truly a wonderful man. I heard him once in a small setting two years ago and I was very impressed. Answered questions about foreign policy for two hours without a note. Afterwards I told him he was the closest thing to Ronald Reagan I had ever heard. He liked that."

Answered foreign policy questions for two hours without notes & my cousin (considered an expert) was very impressed? Barky Obummer is in big, big trouble. ☺

I was amazed to hear how long it took for Romney to receive intelligence briefings. It seems to me they started right after the nomination at the conventions.

I just had an awful recall of Obama and his Office of the President-Elect podium! If that wasn’t an indicator of the emptiness ahead! “A numb skull full of mush”...

Even if he actually did use a teleprompter, there is a good chance he wrote it himself anyways.
