Glenn Loury (Brown University) and Joshua Cohen (Boston Review, Stanford University)

On The Glenn Show, Glenn and Joshua discuss whether Obama came across as disrespectful in the final debate. What would Romney’s foreign policy actually look like? Glenn accuses Obama of hypocrisy for dismissing Romney as a foreign policy neophyte, considering Obama’s own limited experience in 2008. Joshua challenges Glenn to make the case for Obama’s reelection, and Glenn obliges. However, they both lament the president’s lack of vision in the closing weeks of the campaign, and they wonder whether there’s a real chance that Obama could lose.
