    Oops, Fred drank the koolaid:

    “”Obama’s success in developing a pragmatic foreign policy, the killing of Osama bin Laden, the restrained approach to Libya and other policies, has contributed to that shift and contradicts Romney’s charge that Obama’s policies are “weak” and “apologetic.”””

    Not only laughable, but absurd.  Obama is going down the road of Bill Clinton in appeasement of terrorists  which only emboldens the hardline Islamists.

      Short of declared war with Iran or Syria, flying the Israeli flag over the White House, or general chest beating against Islamic extremism how exactly would Romney’s foreign policy differ from Obama’s, or Bush’s for that matter? Obama has escalated our war in Afghanistan and the drone war, drawn down Iraq as Bush would have, and continued indefinite detention. Scant difference from the previous administration. 
      How did Clinton appease terrorists? When he ordered the launch of 75 cruise missiles into 4 alquaeda training camps in August of 1998? I don’t recall him letting OBL take the Sudetenland, but maybe you have inside info.
