Here a War, There a War, Everywhere a War War

Buried in Mitt Romney’s speech in Virginia yesterday in which he toned his criticism of President Obama over the consulate attack in Libya was this little tidbit:

“Romney criticized Obama for reductions in defense spending and the potential deep cuts if the White House and Congress can’t agree to a budget deal by the end of this year and sequestration ensues.

“Ever since FDR, we’ve had the capacity to be engaged in two conflicts at once,” Romney said. “And he’s saying, ‘No, we’re going to cut that back to only one conflict.’”

What a candy-ass this Obama guy is. Only one war at a time? How un-American can you get? No Mitt, actually President Obama is in the process of cutting that back to zero conflicts. But then again, it’s easy to talk about engaging in multiple wars as long you know it’s somebody else’s sons and daughters coming home in flag-draped coffins, isn’t it?

One more reason Mitt Romney has no business sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office.

    The two war strategy was developed to fight the Soviet Union in Europe and an Asian conflict simultaneously. Apparently, Mr. Romney is not aware that the Cold War is over.
    The Romney advisers are the same NEOCONS that got us in Iraq and Afghanistan. These jokers are itching to start a new war in the Middle East. Why else would they be trying to portray Iran as a military threat. Their military budget is a whopping $7BN a year or about a hundred times less than the United States.
    These people are great at sending other people to war but seem to be to busy to do so themselves.

    Actually, according to John McCain in his speech, we should be fighting a six front war: Afghanistan, Iraq, Russia, Syria, Iran, and Northern Africa. Honestly, I’m so dizzy I can’t keep track.
