Romney Playing Cheney Card in Foreign Policy

Had a great discussion a few days ago with MSNBC's Chris Matthews and The Washington Post's Eugene Robinson about Mitt Romney's increasingly Cheney-like foreign policy positions.

Chris Matthews discusses Romney foreign policy frame with The Atlantic's Steve Clemons & The Washington Post's Eugene Robinson.

Romney seems like he is trying to cover up his Rockefeller Republican DNA with a mix of Goldwater foreign policy stridency combined with Dick Cheney/John Bolton style pugnacious hard-line attacks on President Obama's global deal-making.

Tonight off to Doha to participate in the Doha Forum.  More soon.
