Robert Farley (Lawyers, Guns and Money, University of Kentucky) and Bryan McGrath (Information Dissemination, The Conservative Wahoo)

On Foreign Entanglements, Rob talks to Bryan, who worked for the Romney campaign, about the unexpected role that the Navy played in the election. Rob asks Bryan about the impact of Obama’s “horses and bayonets” comment, and Bryan explains the apparently excessive optimism in the Romney camp on election night. They talk about “navalists” in the Obama administration, before moving on to a more general discussion of the defense budget. They conclude with a short conversation about the Israeli missile defense system, known as “Iron Dome.”
