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.
The big question about the Romney visit is whether he will attack the president while on foreign soil. Traditionally, American politicians avoid that, adhering to the customary view that "politics stop at the water's edge."
Even putting human rights concerns aside, questioning why American taxpayers should be spending over $3 billion annually in aid to Israel at a time of massive cutbacks at home doesn't seem unreasonable.
