I decided a while back that Romney was worth my vote, by his virtue of simply NOT being Obama. But if Obama's own team wants to make Romney sound like Reagan redux, I'm in. In fact, I think their doing so only serves to make Obama look even more like Carter redux.
Another Reagan would be nice. Willard’s not Reagan, but he’s the One either.

*** President Obamas re-election campaign on Monday launched a pre-emptive strike ahead of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romneys planned foreign policy address, arguing that Mr. Romney has failed the the commander-in-chief test on the global stage ***
Romney has failed as commander-in-chief ?
Didn't know Mitt Romney was running as the incumbent.
The high point of Romney’s foreign trip was his being endorsed by Lech Walesa, which got no play in the American media. Instead they harped on gripes by easily-offended British twits and complaints from Palestinians.

Mitt is no Reagan. And the funny thing is that to the Dems calling him so is a real smear, while for the undecided voter it may well be an endorsement.

Since people are not happy with Bush’s foreign policy, differentiating Romney from Bush is probably not a wise move by the Obama campaign. Their best move would be to compare Bush and Romney, not contrast them. I doubt anyone thinks Bush’s record was too far right. The going opinion is that he evolved into a nation-building president, which is about as far from right wing as you get.
(Note: I am not endorsing this view, but simply observing settled public opinion on the Bush record)

After Obama has allowed a U.S. Ambassador to be murdered, anything that Mitt Romney can do in foreign policy smells
like roses to me.
