Although it was a great first step that Bob Schieffer even said the word "drone" and made Mitt Romney say it too, to let politicians merely answer the question at this level of abstraction -- "I support drone strikes, too" -- is to let them off the hook.
Has the moderate Mitt risen from the grave and been resurrected during the waning days and hours of the campaign? Has he had an epiphany? Has he awakened from his long slumber?
A couple months ago I blogged about my brother-in-law, a swing voter. Given the tightness of the election this year, and given the fact that he is the only genuine swing voter that I know, this is a subject I have not been able to put down.
Girls are important. We are the future. We want your help and support to make the world a better place. And Mr. President and Mr. Presidential Candidate, we will.

I cannot believe that some in the media are actually trying to pick up on the Republican talking point about President Obama's statement in the final debate about horses and bayonets, just like they sheepishly picked up the Right's talking point about his "not optimal" comment.
In Monday's debate, both President Obama and Governor Romney agreed that the U.S.'s foreign policy strategies hinged upon domestic economic success. There is no richer potential for economic growth than keeping older adults integrated in the heart of the economy.

Fewer ships. Fewer horses. And more games downloaded from the iTunes app store by our military personnel than under any previous president. Do you want a military that plays Words With Friends instead of attacking our enemies?
