It has been a devastating day for the Mitt Romney campaign. There seems to be a real crisis atmosphere just below the surface among Romney staffers concerning the slumping poll numbers in key states, and the inability for the larger themes of the anti-Obama message to take hold.
Following a political convention speech that failed to mention Afghanistan, comes a most perplexing and troubling political blunder that has everyone noticing Mitt Romney does not have the bona fides to be sitting in the Oval Office.
President Obama is making it very clear that there needs to be a reasonable and sound person making the decisions for the nation, not a shoot-from-the-hip guy with nice hair but no substance or moral guiding principles.
Mitt Romney has his cash stashed in off-shore accounts, and seems unable to buy any common sense about the way to conduct a campaign that many Republicans keeps claiming should be an easy election to win.
Might it be that President Obama is a much stronger leader, with a deeper connection among the electorate than GOPers ever dreamed? Or did the GOP start believing their own press releases months ago, and just thought 2012 was ‘their year’?
Mitt Romney is proving with his clumsy efforts the wilderness years for the Republicans are not over.
What should gall everyone–including conservatives–is how Mitt Romney tried to undermine the President of the United States at a time of crisis on the other side of the globe–that very well will impact our foreign policy.
How can anyone think Romney has what it takes to sit in the Oval Office as Commander-In-Chief?
In response to Mitt Romney’s criticism of the Obama administration for its handling of recent violence in Egypt and Libya, President Obama told CBS News on Wednesday that Romney “seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later.”
“There’s a broader lesson to be learned here,” Mr. Obama told “60 Minutes” correspondent Steve Kroft. “And I think — you know, Governor Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. And as president, one of the things I’ve learned is you can’t do that. That, you know, it’s important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts. And that you’ve thought through the ramifications before you make ’em.”
Asked if Romney’s attacks were irresponsible, the president replied, “I’ll let the American people judge that.”
