    A Response to the ‘Question of the Day’ Regarding Romney’s Acceptance Speech at the RNC

     

    It is true that the coming US presidential election would have a great impact on the whole world. That’s the reason why I watch earnestly such CNN’s programs like “The Situation Room” and “Political Mann”. It’s important for a foreign spectator of the ongoing US presidential campaigns like me to know the actual stances and would-be policies of a US presidential candidate with regards to such international issues like immigration, global warming, AIDS epidemic, international terrorism, drug trafficking, human trafficking, the maintenance of ecological balance, etc. The US is the sole Superpower in the world right now, and whoever wins the coming US presidential election would certainly have a great influence on global affairs.

                                                                                                                              

    After watching Romney’s acceptance speech at the RNC, I realized that he is still aloof with such major issues like the AIDS epidemic, global warming, and immigration. He doesn’t have a clear position on health care and he still doesn’t have a clear foreign policy up to now. I think Romney hasn’t yet proven to the American public that he is a highly-principled politician since he flip-flops a lot on certain issues. As I’ve said, he is still aloof with such major problems that affect the whole world like the AIDS epidemic and global warming, so he doesn’t have a strong appeal to a “foreign spectator” like me.
