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.
