Enhance America's "soft power" to bolster our standing and influence
"Soft power" is real power. America must capitalize on the appeal of liberty, free enterprise, and our historical generosity toward nations in need to attract allies--old and new--to the cause of liberty and peace. Our diplomatic and assistance efforts, however, are hampered by a complicated foreign policy bureaucracy that divides authority across agencies. Mitt Romney will place all diplomatic authority in a given region under the charge of one envoy. This will ensure accountability and effective, unified strategies.
