I disagree, Obama has taken a completely different approach to foreign affairs than what Bush took in office. He has not continued the Neo Con policy of preemptive strikes. He's talked to the Middle East and was labeled a coward and apologist for it and allowed Europe to lead on the Libya mission.
Romney doesn't have any experience in foreign affairs and I know you can say the same thing about Obama when he became president but I honestly think that's been one of his strongest traits as President. Romney wants to continue the plan that Bush and Chaney set in place.
