Romney's Day Old Talking Point
Posted by Adam Blickstein

In an Op-Ed today in the Manchester Union-Leader, Mitt Romney regurgitates neocon talking points that he already regurgitated earlier this week at an AIPAC conference that were no doubt originally spoon fed into his mouth by Fred Kagan or one of his acolytes. I'm not going to rehash the idiocies of the Romney's varied and scattered arguments, but the problem with eating ones own vomit is that it just doesn't really taste the same the second time around. For instance, Romney said this at AIPAC on Monday:

When Poland and the Czech Republic are humiliated by us, they lose confidence in America’s support for them, and they may decide that they must incline more toward Russia.

And in his Op-Ed today, Romney stated:

When Poland and the Czech Republic are humiliated by us, they lose confidence in America's support for them, and they may decide that they must incline more toward Russia.

But while Romney was busy re-writing copy and pasting his AIPAC address into the pages of the Union-Leader, Joe Biden was in Poland holding high level meetings with the Polish Premier. The outcome?

...the Polish prime minister and president gave their backing to the scaled-down alternative. That was an achievement for Biden who will take his message to Romania and the Czech Republic.

Premier Donald Tusk signed on to President Barack Obama's revamped U.S. missile shield, declaring Poland ready to participate in the project, which is intended to counter threats from Iran.

"I want to stress that Poland views ... the new configuration for the missile shield as very interesting, necessary, and we are ready at the appropriate scale to participate," Tusk told reporters at a news conference with Biden.

The only thing humiliating is Mitt Romney not reading the news close enough to actually, you know, adapt his talking points to at least marginally reflect reality. We already had one President who was notorious for not reading the news. We can't afford another.

UPDATE: And of course, something Romney doesn't even mention is the fact that the strategic repositioning of our missile defense architecture is meant to enhance both security for Europe and Israel in the face of evolving threats, underscored by joint U.S. Israel defense exercises conducted this week:

A major air defense exercise launched with Israel this week will help the United States craft its European missile shield, a U.S. commander said on Thursday.

Signaling the strength of their alliance against what they say is a threat from Iran's nuclear program, Israeli and U.S. forces launched a biannual drill on Wednesday. Known as Juniper Cobra, it includes target practice against missiles, both real and in computer-simulated exercises.

Well Adam I tend agree with Romney's point and I don't mind him bringing it up again. It's a great view of reality. So when you talk about vomit, I basically assign that sentiment to your diatribe.


Mitt is a fake, from the word go. Not a shock the man cuts and pastes his speeches. Nothing original about Romney.

Romney is not a good teleprompter reader either, and looks plastic as he tries to read his speeches.

When Romney brings something up it becomes news to be debated by all points of view. I believe in Romney's good sense especially what he was saying about illegal immigration during his campaign. It's too bad he isn't able to implement his ideas in a lot of areas, but I'm glad he is helping to elect people who can do something now whether they decide to support him if he runs for Pres. in 2012.

thanks admin
