I like the fact Romney understands free markets, seems to genuinely and aggressively believe in them. etc. And I want him to win. But as a leader of the free world, comparing him to former presidents... makes me think of that West Wing episode, where someone asks Josh if the (pre Barlett) candidate he currently works for is 'the real thing'. There's a pause and Josh says sadly, 'no.' I just can't form any impression that Romney has a deep seated set of convictions on foreign policy, or anything strategic. I could care less if he ducks and dodges on the other stuff, if I thought he really knew about the important stuff.
Still. He's what's on offer for GOP supporters. Could be worse.


In 1890 a Frenchman by the name of Pierre de Coubertin wanted to revive the Olympic Games. At first nobody was really interested and he was not successful. However he refused to give up and he opened up an organization called "Union des Societes Francaises de Sports Athletiques" or the USFSA. He held a speech during a meeting with the members of his organization on November 25, 1892 where he implored upon the people to revive the Olympic Games http://bultip.com
