Grenell Lands Convention Gig With Esquire

Richard Grenell, the short-lived foreign policy spokesperson for Mitt Romney‘s presidential campaign, has landed a new position. He’ll be writing for Esquire. More specifically, he’ll be contributing to the mag’s “Politics Blog” on throughout the Republican National Convention.

Meanwhile, we hear Grenell continues to work closely with the Romney campaign doing media surrogate interviews.

Esquire is a great platform for me to write and speak out on foreign policy issues,” Grenell wrote FishbowlDC this morning. “They care deeply about world events.  They also welcomed my unique conservative brand of fighting media bias and intolerance from the so-called liberal class.”

He added, “I’m a journalist in the way that George Stephanopoulos is a journalist.”

Don’t expect fashion or sex. His first piece is on the differences between Romney and President Obama on Syria. Not surprisingly, he says Obama’s got Syria all wrong.

An excerpt:

“Over the last 18 months, President Obama’s administration has faced three double-vetoes from Russia and China on three separate occasions at the U.N. and failed to stop Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s violence that has left, by some accounts, 30,000 Syrians dead. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called Syria ‘a test of everything the United Nations stands for.’ President Obama is failing that test. His vacillation and timidity on Syria and other foreign policy issues reflects the vision he articulated as a candidate for president, when he suggested the U.S. should not act alone but negotiate with our enemies.”
