Team Obama blasted Mitt Romney's foreign policy speech on Monday, saying it was full of "heated rhetoric"and "chest-thumping" but few specifics.

"This is Mitt Romney's seventh attempt, by our count, to reboot his foreign policy," campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One. "When you're commander in chief, you don’t get to bring an Etch a Sketch into the Oval Office. You don’t get second chances, never mind seven chances.

Maybe Romney needs to assure the Obama “camp” that he will continue the Apology Tour their boss has been on for the last four years.

Sounds VERY good to me, let's work to see that he doesn't have one.

2008 - Obama campaign - Everything was about esoteric “Hope and Change”, never a specific policy uttered.

2012 - Obama campaign - Everything about “Forward”, never a specific policy uttered.

They complain about Romney campaign not having specifics? They want specifics so they can be spun and attacked, is all, because the Obama campaign has NOTHING.

We’re not stupid and neither is the Romney camp. I see what you’ve done there.

Can these people ever just come right out and say what they mean? Does it always have to be some crafty clever analogy, metaphor, slogan or bumper sticker phrase?

Wait? No. If they spoke in real clear language their idiot constituency might actually understand what they’re saying and maybe even have an original thought and disagree....

None of this stuff is going to work for them anymore.

Team O will have to throw out their game book after the debate.

I’m pretty sure it is just not going to fly.

OK, some slacker, OWS types will still buy it, but those people were going to vote for Obama anyway (IF they can bestir themselves to actually cast a vote).

It’s not going to play with the mushy middlers any more.

Those people don’t remember “etch a sketch”, only Freepers and Kos Kids still remember that stuff and our minds are made up.

How is Obomo going to defend his foreign policy blunders during the foreign policy debate with Romney?

...and how many remembered to change their registration address to "General Delivery, Occupy________"? They've been squatting long enough for it to count as a change of residency.

It’s never a good idea to take a page from the Obama play book, but maybe Romney should put up the “Office of the President Elect” seal on the front of the podium whenever he speaks.

If Romney wins he should immediately spend every single day at the white house- call it a ‘transition team’

and stop Odumbell from doing anything until January
