This morning, the gossip was that, in order to try to stave off his slide in the polls, Mitt Romney was going to make a speech today that drew a clear line between himself and President Obama on foreign policy issues. That's an edgy move to make on 9/11, but Republicans have lost so much ground on foreign policy lately that drastic measures clearly have to be taken.
Instead, what Romney offered was a mealy-mouthed implication that he had a foreign policy that was clearly different than—and better than—President Obama's foreign policy, but he wasn't going to share it right now:
This would be understandable if Romney hadn't refused to reveal specifics about anything, ever. Even Republicans are freaking out about Romney's vagueness. He needs to start delivering content, even if that content scares away independents, or else his base isn't going to be there for him in November.
