Romney to slam Obama on warfare

Washington Times:

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Mitt Romney on Monday will accuse the Obama administration of fundamentally misunderstanding the threat of radical Islam, using a major foreign-policy speech at the Virginia Military Institute to say President Obama is rejecting six decades of bipartisan consensus by not flexing more U.S. muscle on the world stage.

And after delaying for nearly a month, the Republican presidential nominee will sharpen his attack about the way Mr. Obama handled the assault on American diplomatic posts in Egypt and Libya.

According to excerpts, he will say the president’s first reaction was to blame an Internet video mocking Islam, and only belatedly to spot “the deliberate work of terrorists who use violence to impose their dark ideology on others.”

“Hope is not a strategy,” Mr. Romney will say. “We cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies in the Middle East when our words are not backed up by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of, and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity.”

  1. The ONLY enemy that a radical leftist can recognize (and Obama fits in that category), is not nations, not Islamic cultural threats, but the Right politically within his own country. It’s this way worldwide. Interesting phenomenon. Listen to Jay Shapiro from his Arutz Sheva podcast from Sunday – his views on leftism really do help to make sense of the backward way the lefties see the world, and in the USA’s case, form their foreign policy.
