In an interview on this week’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt,” which aired last night on Bloomberg TV anchor, the Democratic foreign policy veteran criticized the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s grasp of foreign policy. The ex-Jimmy Carter adviser also worried about Romney’s ties to the neoconservative foreign policy advisers of the Bush years.
“I have a sense he doesn’t really have a broad grasp of what is unique about this century, how it differs from the preceding one. He probably subscribes to the notions articulated by his Republican predecessor, George W. Bush,” Brzezinski told Bloomberg Washington editor Al Hunt. “He seems to have a lot of people around him from that administration who are generally described as neocons.”
