Mitt Romney's desperate tour abroad (taking barely a leaf from Barack Obama's acclaimed European tour in 2008) shows us what a dangerous politician he is. He barely knows anything about Foreign Affairs and forgets names at the drop of a hat. Has he Sarah Palin's DNA locked away in a jar somewhere?
He may have been feted in Israel but not to have visited Palestine or Saudi or Qatar or Tunisia or Libya or Egypt was a sop to events back home. It was not the sign of a man who had a grasp of how the Arab Spring must change extreme right wind rhetoric in America.
Heaven help us if he elected; and that's what we said about George W.
