ROMNEYISMS: Mitt (mis)quotes Jared Diamond

“Guns, Germs and Steel,basically says the physical characteristics of the land account for the differences in the success of the people that live there. There is iron ore on the land and so forth.” Mitt Romney on Jared Diamond’s great book.

Mitt Romney may become our next president. Will he continue to espouse one-factor explanations for multicausal problems, and fail to understand history and the modern world? If so, he will preside over a declining nation squandering its advantages of location and history. Jared Diamond
