    And I would love to hear how Romney will pay for it when he's going to cut taxes across the board, reduce government spending, fight the Global War on Terror, fight the Global War on Drugs, and continue dealing with the insurgency in Afghanistan.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Well, that's all a fine read, but I still don't see Romney on record saying he wants to go to war with Iran.

    So far, dude...you are batting zero.

    Obama has his secret agenda, in my opinion.

    Even I who is not American can see that!

    Do not like it.

    Re: How Would Romney Govern?

    It has become incredibly cliche for a piece of journalism or a newsletter, to focus on one or two policy advisers, and then map out what the policy advisers believe before placing that trajectory onto the incoming or current administration. I think I see it nearly every week. Each time, it's someone different, but plug in the same formula. Just a tiny bit ago Robert Zoellick was given credit for a realist revival in the Romney campaign set to pit up against the neoconservatives http://www.realclearpolitics.com/art...ma_115211.html. See also http://www.policymic.com/articles/12...-neocon-revolt

    One flaw: Romney's team has numerous advisers-many similar, but also some dissimilar. As the Bush administration has shown (though, conveniently not mentioned in the article), it would be likewise dangerous to presume to that the advisers he has will entirely guide his foreign policy.

    Fine then. Vote for him. And we'll see what he does once in office.

    But the record for the GOP to pursue military force when in office doesn't put the chances in your favor.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    When a President starts to sound like an annoying used car salesman.... (no offense to cars salesmen) it's time to stop and think.
