"Mitt Romney is as unqualified to command as Sarah Palin."

You will love this epic smackdown of Twitt Rmoney by The Hill's Brent Budowsky.

http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/presidential-campaign/241915-romney-declares-war-not-qualified-to-command

In my column today I warned that even after seven years of running for president, Mitt Romney would be dangerous for America and the world as commander in chief. I emphasize: The column was NOT about his obviously disastrous trip to Europe. The incompetence of this trip is old news. The issue I raise is far deeper and more serious and dangerous. The role of commander-chief of the American military is a high responsibility. On issue after issue, over the course of years, Mitt Romney has shown he lacks the qualification, preparation, temperament, skill and depth to lead our military. Mitt Romney is as unqualified to command as Sarah Palin.

---SNIP---

After seven years of running for president, Romney has not studied security issues, learned security issues or developed policies regarding security issues. He speaks like a neocon amateur. Throughout his seven years of running for president he has never taken the time or shown the professionalism or depth to even prepare to be commander in chief.

---SNIP---

Our country has been at war for over a decade and Mitt Romney has been running for president for almost a decade. Romney is not ready to command, not qualified to command and not prepared to command. He lacks the qualities of military judgment and diplomatic skill that are essential in a president. He has insulted peoples and nations from Britain to the Palestinians, been condescending to nations from Mexico to Uruguay, advocated weird theories of cultural superiority and inferiority, and would be a danger to the security of America and the world if he were ever given the power of commander in chief.


Of course, the wingnuts are going nuts over this article in the comments.

3. Holy Shit Batman!

 

Of course the RWingnuts are going nuts, but what's been said can't be unsaid. The damage is done, and they can't claw that back. They should know, that's their MOD. What they don't get is the push-back we're giving them.

O.K., that's settled, can we now (please) concentrate on the Congressional races?

My S.O. would explode as a real human being if y'all helped us get rid of Eric Cantor. The parties and cookouts would likely last longer than Cantors term in the House.

6. Just like W...

...who knew sweet jack all about foreign policy, and, no matter what the neocons say, allowed us to be attacked on 9/11.

I can't imagine any Americans who are anxious to relive that experience.
