  •  I don't think Romney could have (14+ / 0-)

    done things much differently in the third debate, even if he'd wanted to.  He could have acted more aggressive, sure, but he was in unfamiliar territory. Foreign policy is not just not his strong suit, it's his clown suit.  His overseas trip to make him look "presidential" was one of my favorite disasters of all time, so he had that in his negative column, and had to tread carefully. He doesn't even know enough basic geography to fake it, and when he tried, he got it laughably wrong, and looked foolish.  He tried as often as he could to pivot to domestic issues where his lies played well with his base, and he was comfortable, but he really couldn't handle the stated topic of that debate.  He could have played an aggressive fool, and had a repeat of his summer trip, or been quiet on foreign policy and tried to pivot.
