MANSFIELD, Ohio — Seeking to regain the offense in the presidential campaign, Mitt Romney on Monday said President Obama is to blame for the automatic defense-spending cuts looming at the beginning of next year and that those reductions will devastate communities in Ohio and other key political states.

Sorry Mitt, Barry will have to get back with you after the election when he has more “flexibility”.

I got real tired of hearing the lamestreaming-media-drivebys, complain that Romney gave no specifics during his convention speech.

I don't remember obama giving any specifics.

This isn’t going to work. Americans are sick of the two wars and want out lock, stock and barrel. Time to bring down defense spending.

I think you’re wrong.

Americans are sick of fighting, for the time being.

Americans are NOT sick of spending on defense. It is what makes us strong.

Now we need to repatriate industry.

Obamao is soooo transparent, that you will never see an answer or response. A total fraud.

Well, since Obama just signed a law that said he would provide those details on the 7th, and since the defense industry has been advertising that fact so they could make their plans for layoffs, Obama is already breaking the law.

And if a defense company told the government they’d submit required paperwork a week late, they’d be in big trouble. But apparently Obama is above the law.

Obama has already missed the deadline for providing where he will cut. It was due last week. There is no way he can delay this until after the election.

Mitt seems to care a great deal about our country, so it stands to reason that he would care about its defense. On the other hand Captain Chair hates the U.S. and everything she stands for, especially the those that defend her.

Romney cares a hell of lot more than our radical Marxist in the WH who relayed the message to Putin that he will have a lot more “flexibility” after he is reelected. I wonder what he plans for our national security during his next four years. He has already made major cuts to the military and more are planned.

Willard dodged the draft at least TWO Times instead of going to Nam and ran off to Paris instead to live in a mansion and drive a Citroen so it stands to reason that he would not care about our country...

Romney should vow repeatedly and loudly to at least double defense spending, bomb Iran, cut all spending to regulatory offices, to shut down the Dept. of Education and to stop all federal funding to local governments. Such interests are what’s wrong with politics today (two socialist parties fighting over barrels of pork).

Mitt, why don’t you have a nice warm cup of STFU, and go attend the Clinton Global Initiative...ok?

And to think I defended this a-hole and sent him donation as recent as a week ago. What an f-ing waste of a candidate!

Defense spending may be able to decrease. But it needs to rationally change its missions then. Stop defending Europe and Japan, for example. It appears what’s coming is a random thinning out.

Excellent politics. And necessary. Romney needs to pound obammie on this one - what holes are opening up? Is that Iran’s cue?

It makes BO look aloof, hands off, uncaring about security.

Sorry, but Mitt taking time to go this pervs Global Initiative is beyond dumb. It's giving Clinton and the Dems credibility, and making himself look weak. When you factor this in with his supporting provisions of ObamaCare this weekend, you have pandering 101.

And to think I took time to defend this a$$hole and send him donations. What the fu*k was I thinking?

Nation building went out with Dukaka and came back with Bush. It’s time to stop it. Powell says if you break it you must fix it. BS!

If we decide to take an enemy out, it is serious retribution and that is that. We don’t rebuild them.

Look at Iraq. The nation building ideology goes that we will be their friends after we take them out. Then we leave and they become our enemy only stronger on our dime next time. We should very rarely attack - only those who directly attack us or to help an ally who has been directly attacked. When we attack there should be no cell phone service or toilet use from that area for a decade or so.

At least he’s trying to make up for blaming Republicans for the nasty and stupid “Plan B” debt ceiling raising budget deal.

Triangulation only works if there is a right or a left nonsensical extreme being underminded by a Clinton wannabe. Plan B was a mutual suicide and surrender between the communist Barack obammy and the spinless Rinos who were afraid of him...afraid of the uppity Tea Party who would not raise the debt w/o cuts to spending.

RAT math. If you don't get a raise, then it's a cut and Romney's buying into it.

Under the terms of last year’s deal to raise the U.S. debt ceiling, Congress mandated that $500 billion in defense budget growth over the coming decade automatically would be “sequestered” starting on Jan. 2.

The annual increase from 2012-2022 is suppose to as such:

Defense: 1.8%
Non-defense discretionary: 1.6%

Even Ronald Reagan was accused of cutting, when all he proposed was a reduction in growth.

I served 8 years in the military including a year in Vietnam. I could care less what Romney knows or doesn’t know about the military. I do know that he loves this country far more than our Poseur-in-Chief who hates this country and what it stands for.
