Mark Jacobson: Romney: Foreign Trip Not the Time to Detail My Foreign Policies
Truman Senior Advisor Mark Jacobson in the Washington Post:
Mitt Romney is taking a lot of heat today for questioning Britain’s readiness to host the Olympic games — a sign, critics say, of his discomfort with the nuances of international relations on the first day of a trip designed to showcase his comfort on the world stage.
But speaking to reporters today in London, Romney said something else that Dems may pounce on — he appeared to say that he doesn’t think it’s appropriate to discuss foreign policy while on a foreign trip.
