10:12 Good to hear the word "drones."

9:50 Again only difference I can detect is Romney saying "I will be meaner to Ahmadinejad." Nothing on how.

9:44 "We also have horses and bayonets." MIT kids loved that one...

9:36 Back to domestic policy. #ChangeTheChannelMarge!

9:32 From comments:

It kind of sounds like Mitt Romney wants to be Obama's Vice President.

9:30 His basic pitch seems to be, "I don't like Obama's speeches."

9:30 Romney. Is. Flailing.

9:27 Romney tries to shift back to economy, starts quoting Ahmajinedad to back up his arguments. Not a good look.

9:22 I can't really tell what Romney would do differently in Syria besides repeatedly say the word "Leadership" as though he were attempting to summon The Ghost of Jeffersonian Democracy.

9:20 Watching this exchange on Syria it's sort of disconcerting that the American position is that we have something to say about everything, everywhere in the world.

Sorry I'm late guys
