On Mitt and Egypt:  The oval office is no place for someone short on ability – or willingness – to weigh all available  options before acting.  This is  something that can’t be pinned on strategists or advisers  and it’s not something for a prospective commander in chief to learn as he goes.  The candidate needs to be able to determine the best course, which may or may not mean to decide on an action immediately.  It’s far more important to stand his ground in the face of calls to do the wrong thing than to stand his ground after having acted impulsively.
