This week, National Review’s Mona Charen and Jay Nordlinger welcome former Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton for a fascinating discussion on Mitt Romney’s foreign policy positions. Also, Mona and Jay give their opinion on the last debate, provide a look ahead to the final weeks of the campaign, and wind up with a stinging point-by-point rebuke to the Obama foreign policy. Not to be missed!

    Jay, Obama said “ship” not “boat.” He got much criticism for that.

    The complaints about Romney were unlistenable. Nit-picking season doesn’t start until 11/7/12.

    Romney could have walked across the Intracoastal Waterway and we’d be hearing “I’m very disappointed that Romney didn’t demonstrate that he knows how to swim.”

    Several months ago Yeti had Ambassador Bolton booked for the flagship podcast and, for whatever reason he had to back out.

    This is what you missed:

    Great. Some time soon I must remember to talk about the great Billy Wilder movie that featured that piece.
