Romney foreign policy concerned about country that doesn't even exist

Romney foreign policy concerned about country that doesn't even exist

Romney's foreign policy expert on a call today expressed concerned about President Obama's policies concerning Czechoslovakia. And he should be concerned, as Czechoslovakia ceased existing nearly 20 years ago.

Romney Foreign Policy Adviser Attacks Obama’s ‘Czechoslovakia’ Policy
By Ben Armbruster on Apr 26, 2012 at 10:31 am

The Romney campaign organized a conference call today with three of Romney’s foreign policy advisers to push back. During the call, Romney adviser Ambassador Pierre Prosper attacked President Obama for dealing with Russia, albeit using geographical terms from the Cold War era:

PROSPER: The United States has become a spectator on issues of national security. We’ve also been embarrassed by North Korea where again it continues to be a conciliatory leaning forward approach and yet the North Koreans will launch a missile surprising the United States by violating their agreement.
You know Russia is another example where we give and Russia gets and we get nothing in return. The United States abandoned its missile defense sites in Poland and Czechoslovakia, yet Russia does nothing but obstruct us, or efforts in Iran and Syria.

1. Good grief. He apparently thinks being President only means deregulating Wall Street.

2. Unbelievable. It's like Romney decided to lift the barrel that contained Dumbya's

foreign policy advisers, and grab whatever happened to be underneath it.

3. Next up: Mittens concerned about policy towards Ottoman Empire.

Jebus, I thought Mittens was a little smarter than this...

5. Scared yet?

Don't you remember their National Security debate? I was scared way back then.
