Skip to comments.LIVE THREAD ~ Romney to deliver foreign policy speech amid big questions on Libya, global economy
Posted on 10/08/2012 7:34:13 AM PDT by SE Mom
Mitt Romney in a major speech Monday will call for a change of course in U.S. foreign policy -- saying the recent, deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya is part of a profound upheaval and that hope is not a strategy.
The speech will mark one of Romneys final opportunities before Election Day to show his potential as a world leader -- amid political turmoil in the Middle East.
The attacks on America last month should not be seen as random acts. They are expressions of a larger struggle that is playing out across the broader Middle East -- a region that is now in the midst of the most profound upheaval in a century, Romney will say, according to speech excerpts provided by the Republican presidential nominees campaign.
I know the president hopes for a safer, freer, and a more prosperous Middle East allied with the United States. I share this hope, Romney continues. But hope is not a strategy. We cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies in the Middle East when our words are not backed up by deeds.
Romney is set to speak at Virginia Military Institute at 11:20 a.m. ET.

Romney better nail Obama to the WALL over Libya.
I hope he doesn’t say he supports the Syrian opposition more than hussein does.
“Hope is not a strategy. We cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies in the Middle East when our words are not backed up by deeds,” Romney plans to say in the address, adding that the U.S. should use its influence “wisely, with solemnity and without false pride, but also firmly and actively.”
(excerpt from Romney speech)
And this will make past the media black out only by patriots sharing it on less conservative forums all acrossed the web.
You know what is great about this is that obama’s puny little brain is still reeling from the Smackdown last week. And now he is going to get hit hard in an area where he is extremely incompetent and extremely vulnerable. This is sort of the “two” of a devastating “one-two” combination.
But the beauty is, if this speech causes him to stop studying how to speak without his teleprompter while his response to this speech might be good, he will bungle the next debate....
The WH and his lackeys in the Press will IMMEDIATELY begin stating that Romney doesn’t understand all the facts intricacies in out dealings with Libya and the Middle East in General, and his opinions are “hurting the process” and his opinions are undermining the nation’s policy, and he shouldn’t comment at all and blah blah blah...
Thanks for the link!
Of course they will- but I believe starting a week or ten days ago Romney began receiving intel briefings, so it’s unlikely he is as ignorant as O will have us believe.
FOX will carry this live.
I haven’t checked if CNN or MSNBC will...though CNN may cover part of it.
Is there a livefeed link to watch on line? Thanks!!
Undoubtedly in a negative way. They will be sure to highlight any statements they want to take issue with.
Crawl says next up- Romney speech.
Also- FOX usually has a streaming link up for these things..
I hope it’s a barn-burner.
Doesn’t matter to me. I wouldn’t watch them anyway. Would rather watch a livestream or FOX, but if not, then wait for the video.
Or maybe this:
Mitt Romney Delivers Major Foreign Policy Speech
Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney visits the Virginia Military Institute today to lay out his foreign policy vision, and contrast it with that of President Obama.
Live at 11:20am (ET) on C-SPAN
As someone once said “It’s the economy, stupid”. Keep hammering it and don’t get off message.
Be very nice , and smart, surprise if Rush then had Mitt on air...seems to me it's about time he did it..IIRC..he had W and Cheney on the show during the campaigns..
Looks like CSPAN will also carry it LIVE:

The libs will call Romney a warmonger for wanting to take a stronger stance in the ME. They will say he’s just like GWB, yada yada yada, and that Chris Stevens death was caused by a islamic hate video.
In fact, the comment section at the link to the yahoo story has about 400 dozen helmet wearing retards basically saying Romney will take us to war with Iran, calling his sons worthless, none of his family have served in war. We should leave the ME to burn, abandon Israel, etc.
Oh how these people will regret their words if we are on the same route within 10-20 years, and Islam isn’t minimized. If these people are still alive, that is.
Will the media finally ask Romney tough questions about why he ignored intel that could have prevented the death of four Americans. As well as why did he insist murder of four Americans was because of a film that mocked the Profet Obama, I mean Mohammad?
Finally,where in hell was Sarah Palin when all this happen!
I hope Mitt say’s his piece, then pivoits to jobs. The Fed printed 2 trillion in new money. Where is it? It’s not out amoung middle Americans. They are in a cash starved environment just like last year, and the year before. And the higher gas prices are using a vast majority of the discretionary cash in the system at the mid income levels.
Thanks for the ping. Got a lot going on this morning but can’t wait to read through the thread and catch up on the news later today!
If only more people would choose the red pill.
MSNBC will carry it live..May have to turn in there after the speech..They’ll probably have Chris Matthews bouncing off the ceiling..
It’s on Cspan now- waiting to start there’s some great sounding music being played by the band:)
Waiting. Waiting. Waiting.
... he will bungle the next debate...
He will bungle it anyway. Here’s my reasoning why:
Mitt at VMI..Oboma on The View
Exactly...and a prayer to pen. Imagine that.
AND they say the Pledge.
Ain’t it great!!!!
Prayer and Pledge, a twofer for libtard head explosion primer material :)
Waiting almost over Gov of VA on..............Hi Mesta!
McDonnell doing a superb job in his opening remarks..
Gov of Va just said “Obama a bystander” that is so true
good analysis; very possibly spot on. My wife sure thinks exactly the same way. So you are probably right!!!
It’s on C-SPAN and FOX right NOW! Go Mittens..... this better be good.
I like McDonnell a LOT. He’s low-key..but a very smart fellow.
Thanks for the ping!
Listening...Touching on Libya now...
Why is he giving Obama a preview to get ready for the next debate with....?
Romney looking and sounding very presidential.
Emphasizing “preventing war”. Excellent! People are not eager for more American lives and treasure to be wasted in another foreign war.
Mentions recent ME (and Islamo countries) riots.
Talks of burning US flags, etc.
[Reminds me of the return of ‘the ugly American’ when Carter was trying to deal with ME issues]
Video did NOT cause the problems — terrorists did.
“these attacks cannot be blamed on video...”
