Romney’s shift on foreign policy creates confusion
By Nicholas Burns
The Boston Globe
“We have two impressive people running for president. I fully realize that is not a judgment universally shared in our polarized, partisan, red-blue divided nation. But Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are both smart and knowledgeable leaders of admirable character who have succeeded in every aspect of their careers. The campaign has showcased, however, their strikingly different life experiences and worldviews. There is every reason to believe they would take us in very different directions in foreign policy.”
Burns was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in the Public Affairs, Business, and Administration Class in October 2012. Burns also offered foreign policy advice to the next president on WBUR’s Cognoscenti blog on October 24, 2012 and was on PBS’ NewsHour to discuss the final presidential debate on October 23, 2012.
