If You Liked the Iraq War, You'll Love Romney's Foreign Policy

Romney's trip abroad has demonstrated that his foreign policy operation is "bush league" in more ways than one.
By now the entire world has gotten a chance to see that Mitt Romney is no foreign policy or diplomatic genius.
He went to Britain and insulted his host's preparation for the Olympic Games -- leading major British papers to run banner headlines like: "Mitt the Twitt" and "Nowhere Man."
He massively damaged whatever ability he might have had to broker Middle East peace were he elected president by theorizing that the economic difficulties of Palestinians stemmed from their inferior "culture."
On his visit to Poland, Romney received the endorsement of former Polish President and Solidarity leader Lech Walesa. The Polish Solidarity union itself -- with which Walesa is no longer associated -- responded by issuing a statement attacking Romney as an enemy of working people.
Romney's debut on the foreign policy stage opened to horrible reviews.
He seems to insult people wherever he travels. He has demonstrated that he is completely tone-deaf -- that he has no ability to understand what other people hear when he speaks. That's bad enough in domestic politics -- but it disqualifies a leader from effectively representing the interests of the United States in dealings with other countries.
