Romney shows off foreign policy creds

Mitt Romney's European vacation is probably not the one he'd have preferred: waterskiing on Lake Como, lounging on a yacht in the Greek Isles, sipping Champagne on the terrace at the Grand Hotel du Cap-Ferrat ... well, you know.

Instead, he's slogging through a three-stop foreign policy credentials-building tour to London, Israel and Poland, trying to avoid rhetorical missteps that piss off the locals.

Roberto De Vido is a communications consultant, writer, cartoonist and jack of many trades. The former chief of Tucson Sentinel’s East Asia Bureau, he now lives in California (make of that what you will).

“I hear there is a guy called Mitt Romney who wants to know whether we are ready…. Are we ready?”

— London mayor Boris Johnson
