Be careful Mitt you were the one who said we should not be going into Pakistan
after a bin Ladin without Pakistan's permission. Mitt has not shown he has
a handle on foreign policy. His misstatements about the Chinese defector and a
pending threat from Russia were untimely and inappropriate.
At a fundraiser Sunday night in San Francisco, Romney recounted his version of a
conversation he had earlier in the day with Bob Carr, the Australian foreign
minister. Romney claimed that Carr had told him in their private meeting that
America was “in decline,” but that the situation could be turned
around if an appropriate budget deal is reached. Carr took issue
with Romney’s characterization of the events. Carr said in a statement
released by the Embassy of Australia that “his remark that ‘America
is just one budget deal away from ending all talk of America being in
decline’ was in praise of America’s economic strengths.”
These are easy shots for an outsider to take.
Romney once again proves himself to be a cheap, crass, mendacious political
hack. He should be ashamed of himself, but I don't think he's capable
of that type of honor. Sad.
Imagine the outcry from the left if these leaks had occurred under a Republican
President! As it is, all is pretty much silent from the left on these leaks, the
Solyndra scam, the GSA debacle, Fast and Furious cover-up, the failed bailouts
and all the rest. There seems to be no accountability whatsoever for the
failings, blunders and cover-ups of the Obama administration, except blaming
anyone who dares to ask questions about these scandals! Don’t blame the
person who is in charge, blame those who ask honest questions; right out of the
"...Romney noted Sunday that key ally Australia's foreign minister, Bob
Carr, had told him during a private meeting that the United States was "in
decline." However, Carr on Monday denied that he was criticizing the
U.S....".Why would a foreign minister of a key ally lie to an
expert job creator?
Furry says: "Romney once again proves himself to be a cheap, crass,
mendacious political hack."And therefore he is at least to rungs
above our current president on the political ladder.
Romney is a weak little man like bush who did nothing
If someone in the Obama administration was leaking info w/o Obama's
knowledge it still falls on Obama's head for being the man in charge.
Those in charge are held responsible for things they should have had control
over but didn't, it should be no different in politics. Feinstein is
accurately condemning Obama even while she thinks she's supporting him.
This isn't going to go well for the Dems in this election.
Would a president deliberately leak confidential information because doing so
would make himself look *good*? I doubt it--the leak is having the opposite
effect as anybody would have guessed. The presidential candidate
who is making the leaks political is Romney.
The facts:"Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who chairs the
Senate Intelligence Committee, told a World Affairs Council forum yesterday,
"I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from
their ranks."Feinstein absolved Obama himself; "I don't
believe for a moment that he goes out and talks about it" (7/23/2012)Attorney General Eric Holder has assigned a pair of federal prosecutors
to investigate the sources of the news stories in question. (June 8, 2012)Said Feinstein: "I'm on record as being disturbed by these
leaks, and I regret my remarks are being used to impugn President Obama or his
commitment to protecting national security secrets. I know for a fact the
president is extremely troubled by these leaks. His administration has moved
aggressively to appoint two independent U.S. attorneys. There is an
investigation under way, and it is moving forward quickly.(7/24/2012)re:Johnny Triumph"it still falls on Obama's head for
being the man in charge."And Romney is responsible for anything
Bain did as long as he was CEO, Chairman and sole shareholder.

if you're judging by their deficiencies. I don't like and don't
want Obama, but Romney is much, much worse.
Romney is right. People have to realize that there IS a conspiracy to bring this
country down. The UN is part of it as well as MANY, MANY of our oldest families,
big pharma and many of our members of Congress. If the idea is to discredit the
US how better to do it than from the FRAUD-in-Chief who is currently in the WH?
And his little dog HOLDER too? Romney really is our ONLY hope. If this FRAUD is
re-elected, the US will be forever changed into something NONE of us want! VOTE
Furry1993,Forget the rhetoric. Give some specific facts.
If this leak is to be properly investigated, it should be by an independent
investigation committee, one not assigned by the WH, which only creates a
glaring conflict of interest in this case. Washington has proven itself not to
be trustworthy of the people's best interest for a long time.
President Obama his own staff and the Department of Defense and Secretary of
State's staff and the CIA and other Intelligence agencies to provide him
input and data. Governor Romney does not have access to that information and
has said he would not play politics with that kind of sensitive and secret
information. Leaks should not even happen as it is against the law and rules of
law and order. A candidate from outside the government doesn't have that
kind of access and even if that person is elected and then has some forms of
information provided prior to inauguration isn't the keeper of that
information nor the releaser. On 20 January 2013, whoever is elected is the
then the keeper and releaser. Governor Romney is limited to information from
the media just as all of us are. With that being said, he is very limited on
the REAL information out there. That is the interesting part of the next 3 plus
months as the President is able to show some potential reliability without much
that a non-incumbent can do about it. Governor Romney is probably correct but
cannot definitively have the classified information for months.
Mitt is desperate. Look how foolish he was to bring his own (paid for) cheering
section at the NAACP convention. Can't get any more desperate than that.
And now he's trying to bring down The President for doing something
repubs failed to do when it was really their only mission. Obama wins this
and romneys commenting on it would be..................? oh thats right
Obama's failure to stop intelligence leaks only demonstrate the need for
Mitt Romney is evolving into a sad and desperate candidate. He has told the
public a series of lies about his personal life, work history, not to mention
his finances. He is frightened and making mistakes in serious areas. Heaven help
the US when he says some outrageous thing in a foreign country. We are already
seeing and hearing Mitt's crazy statements via foreign leaders. On
the DN and many other forums, we now observe how the public is having their eyes
opened to this man. Must be a massive disappointment for Repubs and many other
famous supporters, which, obviously goes far beyond anything their words can
express. Particularly tragic for his family and close friends. Transparency(or Mitt's lack of it) has not been a good thing for Mr.
"I don't like and don't want Obama, but Romney is much, much
worse." "Romney is a weak little man like bush who did nothing" In all the years I've been alive, it never ceases to amaze me how
blind people are...and still blame Bush. After reading all these comments,
thanks for the laughs. Barack Obama was being honored even before he became
President, for doing absolutely nothing deserving of honor. Now that
he's President, and four years later, what honorable deeds has he
accomplished to deserve a second term? Give me the list. Barack
Obama is an evil man in my opinion.
Looking at poll numbers Romney is not acting desperate but rather pouncing on a
This, and fast & furious are worse then Water Gate.
no fit in SG,Give some specifics. Share your insight.
basket case,Romney is a weak little man? You, and I should be so
