On Fareed Zakaria GPS this week on Sunday at 10a.m. and 1p.m. EST, Fareed has a special message for Mitt Romney: The world had changed. It is now a post-American world and “chest-thumping triumphalism won’t secure America’s interests or ideals in a world populated by powerful new players.”
We have a lively panel on the GOP, religion, and Russia: the New York Times' David Brooks, David Remnick from The New Yorker, Peggy Noonan of The Wall Street Journal, and Chrystia Freeland of Reuters.
Later, 1-on-1 with the world’s highest-paid politician: Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore.
And, What in the World: Why you shouldn’t worry about democracy succeeding in the Arab world.
David Remnick on Mitt Romney
When you hear him talking about Obama and foreign policy as in retreat and somehow like Neville Chamberlain, you know that he doesn't believe a word of it, not a word of it. When you hear him talk about safety nets and the poor, he doesn't care a bit about it. And when you look at his real record in his one political success, his term as governor in Massachusetts, his signal achievement he is running away from it. And everybody sees that. So, yes, it's true that - that everybody to the right of a certain point is going to vote against Obama. But will they come out in droves to do so is another question?
David Brooks on Mitt Romney
[I have] a psychology of him [Romney], which is he looks like a WASP so we project onto him 1920s, the villain from the Great Gatsby. But, in fact, he's a Jew. The Mormons have an exodus story. His family has a story in they have perpetual poverty from which they are perpetually climbing out of it. That breeds, even up to his father's era, a sense of we just have to work hard and make it.
And I think he has that sort of drive and immigrant experience. He just - out of the Mormon experience, which he cannot talk about, because it involves Mormonism and polygamy.
