Scott Horton Interviews Doug Bandow
Doug Bandow, senior fellow at the Cato Institute, discusses his article “Mitt Romney: The Foreign Policy of Know-Nothingism;” the easier time Republicans have with diplomatic overtures since they don’t have to defend against “weakness” like Democrats; why you can’t be an Obama fan and morally principled; Glenn Greenwald’s lonely voice of dissent on the progressive Left; Romney’s empty sloganeering, like achieving “victory” in Afghanistan; and why Benjamin Netanyahu would be a de facto cabinet member in a Romney administration.
