    Default New boss same as the old boss

    “But let me repeat my hypothesis: Despite the frequent drama at the political level, America and Americans have found a comfortable center line in what it is they want their government to do and what it is they accept their government doing. It is that practical consensus that has fostered such powerful continuity between two vastly different presidents, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, when it comes, when it comes to this conflict,” Hayden said Friday while speaking at the University of Michigan.
    As for the election, Hayden indicated it may not matter, at least when it comes to anti-terrorism policy. He seemingly confirmed that the rock band the Who was correct when it blurted “meet the new boss, same as the old boss.”

    Hayden, who said he was an adviser the Romney presidential campaign, said Romney would largely follow Obama’s same path, too, if Romney was elected.

    Romney/Ryan do not appear to have foreign political interests or competence, save for Romney being known to appreciate France a bit and being an anti_Russian Cold Warrior (probably just to distract from China, as donors may be disinterested in conflict there).

    The foreign and national policy advisors are probably what one should look at. They appear to have coined all U.S. foreign policies ever since Clinton left office and will certainly fill up the blank policy sheets of R/R if they win.
