Are there really significant differences between Obama and Romney when it comes to foreign policy? I ...

More than ever before in our history, the differences couldn't of been more stark.

Completely different visions of america and its role in the world.

Obama is more likely to work with other leaders and coalitions where Romney wanted to project US dominance.

Domestically, its night and day there too.

So relieved Obama won.

Fenix....agree every thing you say.


America will also move closer to European values.
Better still if Joe Biden can carry the revolution for another 8 years from 2016.

As for China, it means China will be more isolated.
Even Russia after Putin will join the progressive revolution.

By 2020,
China will be the only odd man out. The outlier.

Let the revolution continue.

And leave behind for good the Red States ideology.

It's a win for all mankind.

its a win for dropping ideology and religious extremists.

It can't do much harm, I guess.

What I'm wondering is rather, if the USA are now going to join the Eurozone

Seriously, I am disappointed. The USA are becoming a European nation and as a European myself, I've witness with my own eyes that the European model is bound to fail. Debts are already at ridiculous level in the USA - and I don't think Obama will magically start running surplusses during the next four years.
China is copying Europe, the USA are copying Europe and Europe itself is failing, economically, politically and morally.

Perhaps older people, like JFenix, like Obama, because they won't have to pay for the debts - but young people will carry the debt burden of our world's nation, and I'm not really fond of paying for past mistakes.

Economic model ?

Once before the USA had a "slave-industry" within it's own borders to ensure cheap labor costs.

"Today" the other super power is at that level the USA was once before with another kind  "slave-industry" within her borders.

(Migrant workers, Foxconn, kiln, to give you an idea)
It is indeed very practical that the party is  judge, legislator, head of the army, executor  and  publisher  all in one in China.
