Romney says Obama "misunderstood" US values

BOSTON -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says President Barack Obama has "misunderstood" American values in his policies toward other countries. The Republican nominee is planning a major foreign policy speech in the coming weeks.

Romney on Sunday wrote an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal outlining a foreign policy critique he first made at campaign events following an attack in Libya that killed the U.S. ambassador. Romney is accusing the Obama administration of minimizing the seriousness of that attack and the other threats facing the U.S. in the region.

Romney writes, quote, "our values have been misapplied - and misunderstood" by Obama. He also says Obama has distanced the U.S. from Israel.

1. I don't think the guy with a ten-point deficit in the polls can comment on US values

After all, one imagines that the guy most in tune with what Americans want is the dude with hte ten-point lead!

16. It's all the same old crap

Doesn't he realize that just saying the same thing over and over about how the President doesn't understand whatever isn't gonna be enough to win?

Does he even have a campaign team?

18. Yes, he has a campaign team...

But they're all Republicans, so that explains the problem.

19. Yes, you're right. "Misunderstood White Values" is the translation.

It still boggles my mind why Rmoney is still pandering to the racists. He already has them in the bag.

8. Romney Needs To Stop His Appeasement Strategy Towards Israel

And he need to stop his McCarthyism on foreign and defense related issues. Romney is one scary dude and you don't want him in charge of our security nor the Justice Department. He seems to be a rather sick individual and his wife Ann seems to have a concern on this as well.

10. yes to the title, and and your inside message!

Since when do we put Israel first anyway? Never. But if Rmoney wins, will all that backing from warhawks..... They really just want the war machine to keep on running.

I've always seen him as devoid of empathy and compassion - just what we don't need at the top.

13. "Mitt Romney" and "Major foreign policy speech" have nothing to do with each other...

...and don't even belong in the same sentence. What a desperate, pathetic weasel he is. It's a sick joke for him to think he has anything of value or import to say about Obama's foreign policy.

15. Here's Romney's silly WSJ piece - talks about "the maelstrom" and "sinews":

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444712904578024293333633994.html

Yet amid this upheaval, our country seems to be at the mercy of events rather than shaping them. We're not moving them in a direction that protects our people or our allies.

And that's dangerous. If the Middle East descends into chaos, if Iran moves toward nuclear breakout, or if Israel's security is compromised, America could be pulled into the maelstrom.

-snip-

But this Middle East policy will be undermined unless we restore the three sinews of our influence: our economic strength, our military strength and the strength of our values. That will require a very different set of policies from those President Obama is pursuing.

The 20th century became an American Century because we were steadfast in defense of freedom. We made the painful sacrifices necessary to defeat totalitarianism in all of its guises. To defend ourselves and our allies, we paid the price in treasure and in soldiers who never came home.

-snip-



Brave talk of "painful sacrifices" from someone who's never made any -- a quarter-billionaire tax dodger who wants his own taxes cut further, and a chickenhawk draft dodger who opted for missionary work in France though he was in favor of the war so many men his age fought in.
