Reader comment on item: Romney Stumbles on Foreign Policy
in response to reader comment: More to the performance than meets the eye

I agree with you wholeheartedly. This debate was not to rally the base and not to fall prey to O's traps where he could spout talking points. Romney has done an admirable job ducking the O campaign's attempts to paint him as a rich aloof cruel warmonger. Every appearance belies this. I also like that R can be very aggressive as well as demure and diplomatic. He is a great politician.

Perhaps he took a page from BiBi;s playbook. Whenever the two have spoken together, O is heavily outshined by the brilliant diplomacy of BiBi and he makes O look bad by outdoing him with graciousness and turning his comments back on him.
