All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

There is no point in telling Mitt Romney what to say or how to say it. I just hope he will remember some the following foreign policy issues:
  • The expansion of Al Qaeda and its influence in the Arab Spring.
  • Fast & Furious as gun control policy. 
  • Events in Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt. 
  • Our alliance with Israel
  • Iran's nuclear ambition-Is it true, Mr. President, that you recongnize Iran's right to nuclear technology? 
  • The importance of fossil fuel in America's national security.
  • Support for oil exploration in South America and the prevention of exploration here. 
  • Our influence in the UN and the world at large. 
  • The importance of trade deals in our favor. 
  • Reinvigorated support for our traditional allies.
  • Ask Obama what he meant when he told the Russians he'd be more flexible after he was re-elected?
Mitt should be on his guard against Bob Schieffer, who is decidely liberal and can be a slick customer with Texas drawl and softpoken manner.
