Romney to Make Foreign Policy Speech on Friday

His indecision is indicative of a Republican Party that no longer possesses a consensus international vision. Candidates like Rep. Ron Paul , R-Texas, and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman have urged President Obama to expedite the military's drawdown, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry has sent similar mixed signals. Few candidates, other than former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., have advocated a hawkish position reflective of the one held by George W. Bush and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. Romney's speech also gives him the chance to distinguish himself from Perry, whose foreign policy responses during the last debate were widely panned. The location of Romney's speech, South Carolina, is also notable. A Winthrop University poll released last month showed a competitive two-way race between Romney and Perry the early state, which set its primary Jan. 21 earlier today.
