How about slamming him on adding 4 more years to our afghanistan misadventure? Twelve years we’ve been there. Insane.

But Friday’s jobs report, which showed the unemployment rate dipped below 8 percent — to 7.8 percent, which is where it was when Mr. Obama took office in January 2009 — erased one of the Republican’s favorite talking points.

The authors have to venture into domestic policy and intrude it into foreign policy in order to blunt the effect of Romney's address. But let us concede both the truth of the unemployment numbers and their presumed effect as stated by the authors.

I believe that Romney should use the fiasco of Benghazi as a metaphor for the failures of the Obama administration both foreign and domestic, just as the media exploited hurricane Katrina as a metaphor for the alleged fecklessness of the Bush administration, both domestic and foreign.

Benghazi tells us all we need to know about the employment numbers. The lapses of the Obama administration generally in misconceiving the war in defense of terrorism by militant Islam and specifically on the ground in Libya were blamed absurdly by the administration on an amateurish, largely unviewed video. Similarly, the failures of Obama's policy over 3 1/2 years and after trillions of dollars to advance employment 1 mm is blamed blamed on George Bush.

Katrina became a metaphor for incompetence in the Bush administration at a time when people felt that it was a way of complaining about the Iraq war without appearing unpatriotic. Before the surge we seem to be failing in Iraq so we complained about Katrina. Much the same can now be imposed on Obama and with far more justification. We can say that Obama stubbornly refused to acknowledge the failure of his foreign policy of appeasement and apology just as he has failed to acknowledge the failure of his efforts to restore the economy. Obama's incompetence alone is not the story, it is Obama's stubborn refusal to acknowledge his failures and change course which is the real story.

The idea is that no corrective action will ever be possible so long as Obama is president.

"Benghazi" should be put into the political lexicon in exactly the same way that "Katrina" was forced onto us.

This is Romney’s two-by-four to the side of the head of the Boy King. The other side and press will squeal like stuck pigs in their a response, making themselves look ridiculous to the voters that matter.

Is there a leaker in the Romney campaign or do they think giving the opposition the plan is a smart move?

Sure Mitt, we have plenty of money lying around and haven't started a new war in several years. And we don't want our military to get idle and lazy not having a couple of wars to fight.

One might wonder if he is looking to hand the election to Obama. The American public is rightfully fed up with endless crusades.

What about the “...more flexibility after the election” message Obama sent our once and maybe still mortal enemy, Russia, the only country that can still utterly destroy us in military terms?

It shows either a profound mistrust of the American people, at best, or our president is a traitor at worst.

It would be ironic if it is over the top to go there, but at the same time true.

obama understands Islam all too well. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He’s destroying the U.S. And he found a bunch of people who agree with him.
