Mitt the Unprepared

I’m bothered by a growing sense that Mr. Romney just doesn’t seem to take seriously the need to prepare and understand the issues he discusses.   The latest case in point – his comments in Israel regarding role of different factors in the prosperity of nations (N.B. the words in the speech were pretty much verbatim from Romney’s book “No Apology: Believe in America”).   He mischaracterized and showed a deplorably shallow read of one of the greatest books of recent times – Jared Diamond’s “Guns, Germs, and Steel”.  If you haven’t read it, you should – if you’re interested in the arc of history.

I’ll let Mr. Diamond speak – here
