Well, here they go again -
If you read the News today, this is an example of the crap you'll see from last night's NH Republican Debate....
" Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who leads in the early polls and fundraising efforts, had a surprisingly easy two hours Monday night. He looked calm and steady, criticizing President Barack Obama on the economy and health care while rarely being forced on the defensive despite some well-known vulnerabilities of his own. " - NPR
Sounds nice....no issues....nothing here to see citizens...go about your business......
IN REALITY, this is what he said when he was asked by CNN Moderator John King about AFGHANISTAN, and what he would do:
" A retired Navy man with three sons serving asks the candidates if it is time to start withdrawing from Afghanistan. The question goes to Romney, who has publicly admitted that one of the reasons that he lost in 2008 was that the campaign swung on national security, not the economy.
This is his big chance. "It's time for us to bring our troops home as soon as we possibly can, consistent with the word that comes to our generals that we can hand the country over to the Taliban military in a way that they're able to defend themselves," Romney says. As he says Taliban military, the camera cuts to someone in the audience in military dress who winces. Romney corrects his mistake, but the deed is done. To rub it in, Paul follows Romney by saying, "I wouldn't wait for my generals. I'm the commander in chief."
Romney, who is apparently still spinning from his Taliban flub, butts in to say that Obama is terrible in a number of ways. It's as if he is reading from a teleprompter. "We've had presidents in the past that had bad foreign policies. This is the first time we've had a president that doesn't have a foreign policy," he says. This feels a bit like a non sequitur, but at least Romney is back on message..." - TIME Magazine
WHISKEY - TANGO - FOXTROT ?? Romney said " ....we can hand the country over to the Taliban military in a way that they're able to defend themselves," - ARE YOU FOR REAL?
ROMNEY who wants to elevate himself to COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF and he doesn't understand that the TALIBAN are the enemy ?? What a dunce ! Like we need another President who hasn't got a clue about the military.
And to add to it , the MEDIA doesn't really report it as you have to dig through the reports to find this "flub"
Just what we need, the MEDIA propping up another "empty suit" who wants to be President OR they are supporting him because it all but ensures the present FOOL in the White House will get a second term.
It leaves an educated voter like myself disgusted and appalled. That the MEDIA can be so biased and one sided means we will see another election cycle full of false stories and out-right lies. It is an indictment of the PRESS if they are going to act like this and ignore their responsibility to report the facts w/o bias.
