How conveeeenient. The Democrat msm wrote all the “gaffe” stories about Romney’s European trip to provide news clips for Obama to use in campaign ads. It’s great to have enablers in the press.

The old USSR despots depended on the press to control the people, however, most Russians were smarter than that. In the USA, the jury is still out.

"The Democrat msm wrote all the gaffe stories"

While that is true, the press has written extensively about the likelihood that Romney's foreign policy team would be dominated by NeoCons.

The upcoming speech is at VMI. Last Oct Romney named 22 foreign policy advisors dominated by NeoCons and gave a foreign policy speech at the Citadel which was written by NeoCon Fred Kagan. Since then, Romney's closest advisors have been NeoCons lead by NeoCon Dan Senor.

OTOH, about 6 weeks ago, Robert Zoellick was named to head Romney's national security transition team, but it is not clear whether Romney picked him or Mike Leavitt picked him. It is also not clear whether or not Zoellick would have a key job as Romney's SoS or SecDef.
