Say what you will about Obama (and there is a lot to say about him), but the guy is smart enough to know not to go running his mouth like this. Some people can't get over the idea that the U.S. is this lone wolf country that doesn't need anyone's cooperation, ever. This is a world economy now. We are no longer a country that produces, we are a consumer. That means we have to buy our product from someone. Everyone can't shut up about how great capitalism is, yet fail to realize that capitalism means you have to buy stuff from someone. In this case, Romney is over there talking trash about our closest ally. What's he going to say if he is ever in a room with the President of Iran? This guy is ridiculous...
Further more he is the story book of a tax cheater. The lowest tax rate ever (and unheard of around the world) for his income level is supplemented by tax evading maneuvers such as shuffling money to the Cayman Islands, Bermuda, Switzerland and the Bahamas. Every Joe Average would go to jail. He is running around as a presidential candidate.
Heck, that guy has pretty much flip-flopped on every single issue.
And then he surrounds himself with more idiots. How can you have a foreign policy adviser talk about the thread of the Soviet Union in 2012????????
The Romney campaign is pulling hard for that "anti-foreigner" vote.
Not every human is a manipulative, opportunistic, letch... or at least that's what I'm told.
Who'd have ever thought you'd see a day when the GOP candidate pandered to the Bircher wing, and the Bircher wing only?
It'd be funny if it weren't so sad.
He set up this trip because he lacked foreign experience and wanted to assure the American public that he would be fine dealing with other countries leaders. And he gets openly mocked, from the Prime Minister down to the press, by our closest ally. FoxNews was all over Obama because he and Putin wouldnt meet eyes when sitting next to each other. Hilarious in comparison. I agree, whats going to happen when he has to talk down a unfriendly head of state? 3 sentences in they will probably pack up and walk out laughing.
I wanted to be sold on another candidate. I wanted to be...not wooed, not swayed, just presented with another option. But this is laughably bad. He has commited the cardinal sin among Republicans: going into an election with absolutely nothing going for him on Foreign Policy(unless you count his argument: i wont do what Obama does!).
