Romney's 2010 book is revealing not only for its title -- No Apology -- but also for its subtitle, The Case for American Greatness. For Mitt, America's greatness is defined by blustery aggressiveness without apology, In a word, bullying.
As Americans, both Democrats and Republicans, we owe Obama another four years to bring full stability to everyone. No American should have to feel apprehension, discomfort or fear of the other.
In tonight's foreign policy debate, Mitt Romney will say that the way to get jobs back from China is with more free trade and lower taxes. How can the loss of workers' rights in China or anywhere else create good jobs in the United States? Short answer: It can't.
Dapper and distinguished with more gray at the temples than when he was on the national stage as chairman of the Republican National Committee, Michae...
The news that Obama has chosen dialogue over saber rattling gives Romney the opportunity to vent his criticism at the sole foreign policy debate that falls on the 50th anniversary of the night when President John F. Kennedy first made public the existence of Soviet nuclear missiles in Cuba.
Neither candidate for president is addressing one of the top 10 issues that Americans believe should be a priority for the next president -- more important than terrorism, the deficit, schools or social security.
Putting a foreign lens on American politics makes the most sense in terms of getting voters to make their own informed decisions. I knew watching the BBC that before the post-debate recap started it was not going to push a candidate in my direction.
Let us think of the presidential debate cycle as a four-act play, a miniseries with a distinct beginning, middle and end. We have seen the first three acts -- now comes the denouement.

America needs real women sitting at the table of power.
Scientists can enlightens us with sound science and tell us,"The wait and see approach to the climate crisis will be too late," while celebrities can illuminate and help amplify this message.
It's Tuesday, October 16, 2012 and the presidential candidates emerge from opposite ends of the stage looking confident and excited.
President Obama won in 2008 largely because of support among independents. Whichever poll you want to look at, Obama badly trails Governor Romney among independents this year. And he is going to have to cut into Romney's independent support if he wants to win a second term.
Despite what policy wonks might think, there is nothing superficial about style. On Tuesday night, Romney also told us more than what he managed to put into words.
I would like to believe that overall the televised presidential debates are helpful for America's voters. For some, no doubt they are. But for many, that's questionable. As one acquaintance put it in an email on Wednesday, "both acted like big immature babies." At best, that's hardly "presidential."
What makes the binder comment intuitively funny is its obliviousness to all these considerations. What makes it less comical is that with the last debate focusing on foreign policy, it's unlikely that Obama himself will have another chance to make that point.
