Not only has our part of Virginia seen a lot of the national candidates this year, we’ve seen them commit some actual news, too.
First there was President Obama’s “you didn’t build that” line delivered on the Roanoke City Market.
Then there was the Chris the Baker episode, with the Radford baker who turned down a proposed visit by Vice President Biden.
And then earlier this week, Mitt Romney delivered a high-profile address on foreign policy at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington.
We have the full text of that address here.
Meanwhile, a writer for the left-leaning Slate goes through Romney’s speech point-by-point and calls it the candidate’s “most dishonest speech” yet — saying Romney talked tough but didn’t propose anything different from what Obama is already doing.
