Romney Abroad: Candidate Obama Did It Better in 2008

July 26, 2012

Mitt Romney's clumsy start to his overseas trip is shaping up as a stark contrast to candidate Barack Obama's tour of the Middle East and Europe in July 2008, when he managed to strike perfect pitch at press conferences and in visits with foreign leaders.

As a reporter on his campaign plane at the time, I remember the pundit predictions about the risks that the trip held for the then-first-term Illinois senator who was running against Vietnam veteran and former POW John McCain.
