Mitt Romney Recasts Himself as a Neocon

Mitt Romney, the presumptive GOP frontrunner, gave his first major foreign policy address at The Citadel military academy in South Carolina last Friday.

He mentioned President Ronald Reagan twice, and although his speech largely portrayed policies and positions that closely resemble those of George W. Bush, he neglected to mention the latter.

Despite the severe budgetary woes, which will force the scaling back of defense programs at the Pentagon, Mr. Romney sought to portray himself as a hawk and argued for increased military spending, especially for the U.S. Navy.
