Romney’s National Security Message

What you need to know:

  1. Romney really, really believes in his analysis of the Obama record — strongly and firmly, especially the stuff about America and its allies.
  2. The Obama campaign and many/most journalists and foreign policy savants will say, with more than a measure of truth, that Romney’s critiques are long on rhetoric and short on meaningful specifics.
  3. It is hard to see the swing voters in the swing states impacted by what Romney says about foreign policy in July.
  4. The Veterans of Foreign Wars are more inclined to applaud for Mitt Romney than the NAACP.
  5. Romney’s delivery Tuesday, on pure performance, was hyped up and instructive as he works his way towards the much bigger speech in Tampa.
