In the aftermath of Governor Romney’s now famous comments about government dependency, many are wondering how the Governor would seek to assist those in need. That’s why I found the Governor’s twenty minute speech at the Clinton Global Initiative interesting. He outlined some specific kinds of foreign aid policies he would pursue, and also gives a fairly articulate defense of the value of work, liberty, and free enterprise.
Don’t get me wrong – Mr. Romney does not have President Clinton’s or Obama’s eloquence or charm. But I did come away convinced that Romney believes what he’s saying here (and his generosity suggests that as well).
