The piece we wrote Tuesday night and Wedesday morning foresaw this huge debate in the context of our election. Mitt Romney is determined to pour gasoline or even nitro on the crisis in the Middle East. Romney continues to accuse President Obama of apologizing in the middle of attacks on our embassies in Egypt and Libya. And ROMNEY HAS BEEN INTENTIONALLY LYING.
With his neo-con advisors Donald Rumsfeld, Liz Cheney, Dan Senor, they are all spoiling for war. It is either desperation or the attempt to build a foundation for genocide. They clearly want a war. Do these chickenhawks want a permanent war that they won’t serve in and none of their kids will serve in?
Romney has done all this in the midst of grieving for the deaths of four Foreign Service workers.
And politically Romney is crazy. After of years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, America does not want another war, especially not a war that would engulf the entire Middle East.
Romney has no clue how to lift our country out of this economic ditch. His arguments on the economy are brain dead. He wants more wealth for the rich, more poverty for the middle class, the poor, and seniors.
Americans have had enough of that crap.
So Romney decides to become Billy Badass and threaten our nation and our world.
We got work to do, lots of work to do to re-elect Obama and Biden.
