Mitt continues to campaign in opposite land.

Well I guess it's good that President Obama hasn't demonstrated either with respect to foreign policy, then.

Although maybe I should cut Romney some slack. He did serve his country by resisting the Vietcong from his bicycle on the Champs-Élysées. I think he even got a Purple Heart.

And where was Obama when the Red Threat was on Paris' doorsteps? Probably eating dog in some swanky Indonesian resort.

Knows a thing or two about how weak and indecisive Obama is on foreign issues.
 
2012-07-25 01:52:02 PM  
So true. Good foreign policy involves flailing blindly, bombing people, and ignoring the United Nations.

I hope he goes around the world badmouthing the US the way he went around and badmouthed Massachusetts when he decided he'd rather be a failed candidate than a failing governor.

speaking of weakness and indecision, has the romney campaign come out with any foreign policy specifics beyond "america. strong. good." yet?
 
2012-07-25 02:18:36 PM  
Now let's hear Romney actually give us some details about his foreign policy other than "IRAN BAD" and "I'LL STAND UP TO CHINA"

Mittens, I had a word with the dog this morning, and I'd like to make a few things clear.

Sorry, Mitt, being Anglo Saxon does not guarantee you are innately better at these things than anybody else.

Of course he does. Increase defense spending. Everything will be all better globally if we do that.

"Might make right" never led to folly. We don't need a leaner, smarter, more intelligently responsive military. It needs to be bigger and dumber.

Of course, military defunding is largely due to the Republicans triggering the sequestration, but Romney conveniently never mentions that.

Yes.

Be certain of your decisions and stand strongly behind them, just before you change them to appeal to the far right wing idiots.

One of the advisers, when asked how a Romney White House would address the European debt crisis, said: "I'm not sure what our policy response is."

Has the GOP come up with any policy specifics that don't start with, "Repeal"?

And the people in this thread who actually think that's funny will see no problem going right back to proclaiming all of these unscrupulous business deals that he PERSONALLY took part in were sinister manipulations.

You people, yes I did that on purpose, had this same problem with Bush... Who was somehow the stupidest person in the world while also being able to trick and con Democrats in to doing what he wanted. One day he's a moron, the next day it's all a sinister plot.

Here is a Republican's idea on foreign policy.

What we need to do is all come together as a nation, to support America and fight this fight as American's and win or lose as American's, even if the war is trumped up jingoistic bullshiat, muslim hating, and fear mongering based on falsified and non-existent intelligence. You'll give your kids to me for this wont you America? We can't appear weak or indecisive to the world USA! USA! 9/11!! USA!

Here is a Republican's idea on domestic policy.

Wait, you mean American's should pull together to make things better for us all as a whole? What are you? Some kind of commie,socialist, atheist? So what if it works in other countries, do we care what they think?

Romney on security: 'The surest path to danger is always weakness and indecision'

Contrast that with a quote from an articler further down the page: "One of the advisers, when asked how a Romney White House would address the European debt crisis, said: "I'm not sure what our policy response is."

Nobody gave Bush credit for being able to trick anyone. Stop lying. Everyone, GOP included, thinks Bush was an idiot and was just doing what the GOP machine told him to do. It got so bad that they had to invent the Tea Party so that loyal Republicans could pretend that they didn't support Bush during the era.

Romney is doing the same. It's called pandering.

I think he wanted to piss off Russia, too. Which is a good idea, considering all the Arctic negotiating we're trying to do with them now.

I don't think it's funny at all - nobody wears breeches after riding. You want a nice velvet smoking jacket for that.

That's hilarious coming from a twat that has held multiple positions on the same issue and can't even articulate why he should be president beyond, "Obama Bad".

Oh yeah. Dumb. Real dumb...

- Harvard MBA
- Flew supersonic interceptors
- elected gov of Texas TWICE
- elected President of US TWICE

Meanwhile, the current occupant of the White House has no executive experience, didn't even serve out a whole term as Senator, his only serious employment was that of "Community Organizer", and apparently there are serious shenangans going on with his academic career since they SEALED his records (imagine all the butthurt if Bush had done that).

Obama only went after Osama because the military served up Osama on a freakin' platter, and asked, "can we whack him now, please?" so he was trapped. What was he gonna do? "Ummm, no thanks"? He would have been crucified if it got out that he had a shot at Osama and he didn't take it. The military would have leaked it. He didn't have a choice.

So, in summary:
Economic policy-wise, he is Dubya all over again.
Foreign policy-wise, he is Dubya all over again...just another neoconservative puppet.

And people really think they want to return to that unmitigated disaster? We've spent 8 years digging out of it...
