Maybe Donald Trump plans to buy a foreign policy.You could hear some of the air deflating from the Trump balloon when he talked foreign policy. Asked what he would do about Russian President Vladimir Putin's military moves in Syria, Trump offered what sounded like a Yalta-style embrace. Trump stumbled further when pressed by conservative moderator Hugh Hewitt about his foreign policy expertise. Rubio eloquently made the traditional Republican case for robust, interventionist foreign policy.The jumbled Republican message on foreign policy was reassuring, in a strange way, because it underlined that there is no quick fix to the serious problems the United States has encountered abroad over the last 15 years.The Republican candidates seemed to agree that it was Obama's fault, but they offered no clear alternative strategy.A revealing moment came when Hewitt asked why Cruz, Paul and Rubio didn't bear some responsibility for the Syria catastrophe because each indicated they would vote against allowing Obama to use force against President Bashar Assad's regime in 2013 . By the end, even Trump had to admit that Bush had shown new energy.
