Two Can Play That Game - Romney VFW Edition
Posted by David Shorr

640px-Mitt_Romney_by_Gage_SkidmoreIn the spirit of turnabout being fair play, I thought it would be interesting to look for snippets from Mitt Romney's recent VFW speech that might make interesting 30-second spots.

I found a few sound bites that are ripe for the 'you didn't build that' / 'if we keep talking about the economy' treatment. 

Mitt Romney told an audience of veterans that "firmness in American foreign policy can only bring tension and conflict."  

According to Mitt Romney "we do not have the strength or vision to lead."

Mitt Romney's a declinist who clearly believes America is on a downward slide. He said we're in "a time of declining influence."

Well, you get the idea.
