Romney Channels Gerald Ford

image

If you’re old enough to remember the Ford-Carter debate, you may remember Ford stating that Eastern Europe was not under Soviet control. His statement was an indictment of how clueless Ford was of foreign policy. Romney’s statement last night  was so out of touch, that even the moderator was compelled to fact check it. This was Willard’s “Ford Moment.”

During last night’s debate, President Obama finally took Willard behind the woodshed: He exposed him for the elitist, uninformed and out of touch liar that Romney is. Willard has been mediocre at best as a politician, why would anyone think he’s capable of running this country? Hell, he couldn’t even handle running one state.

One more thing on the Benghazi terrorist attacks: The Republican dominated congress voted to slash funding for embassy security. It’s because of their misguided “austerity” measures that 4 people were killed that night. To point fingers and to politicize this tragedy is not only wrong; it’s morally reprehensible. I can’t seem to recall any Democrats blaming Bush for the thousands who were killed on 9-11 over a decade ago. The fact that the Republicans are even willing to go there displays just how bereft of morals they truly are.

    That was probably one of the best moments of the debate. And I am so glad Obama called him on being seriously offensive when he all but stated that Obama and the administration put politics over the tragedy in Libya. Actually, Romney was probably talking into his mirror, since he did exactly that.

    It was the SPEED of the politically motivated attack that made it so disgusting. If this thing happened a year or two ago, fine. But this criticism happened virtually simultaneously and was based on the flimsiest of information. As I understand it, it also wasn’t an asked for opinion, but volunteered one.

    It was naked political ambition that barely fell short of celebration.
