From today’s Wall Street Journal editorial praising Mitt Romney‘s foreign policy speech yesterday:

The boys in Chicago will keep saying that Mr. Obama has “strengthened our alliances and restored our standing.” But come again? Ask Israel, Poland or Saudi Arabia how confident they are of America’s friendship and resolve these days. The fires across the Middle East, from Libya to Syria to Iran, rage in a vacuum created by the perception that the U.S. is withdrawing from the region. Weakness emboldens adversaries, as Mr. Romney put it, whether Russia’s Vladimir Putin, violent Arab Islamists or Iran’s mullahs.

Presumably “boys in Chicago” refers to the Obama campaign headquarters. Though, that may not have been the best word choice.
