FNC Shows Flashback to Obama Ridiculing Romney:
Newsbusters.org ^ | March 1, 2014 | Brent Baker

Posted on 03/01/2014 7:56:47 PM PST by Kaslin

Bret Baier opened a panel segment on his show Friday night with a flashback to President Barack Obama’s snide ridiculing, of Mitt Romney’s now seeming prescient concern about Russia’s “geo-political” threat, during the October 22, 2012 presidential debate. “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the cold war has been over for 20 years,” Obama lectured.

FNC Shows Flashback to Obama Ridiculing Romney: ‘1980s Are Calling to Ask for Their Foreign Policy Back’

Audio: MP3 clip Romney’s retort to Obama: “Russia, I indicated, is a geopolitical foe...and I said in the same paragraph I said and Iran is the greatest national security threat we face. Russia does continue to battle us in the U.N. time and time again. I have clear eyes on this. I’m not going to wear rose-colored glasses when it comes to Russia or Mr. Putin.”

If only Mitt Romney was POTUS we wouldn’t have any of these problems today.

How did he lose anyway?

Puhleze, it was Gov. Palin who called this correctly.

Romney shows his typical ENVY, such as when he had
his surrogates throw Election 2008 to Obama.

Absolutely. That is why I keep asking the ignorant do they miss Romney yet. Only the blind and foolish were unable to work for Romney who was the candidate Republican voters decided they wanted. I would have never believed we had so many dumb Republican voters before this. And they will still be at it in 2016.

I don’t know, but people it seems took Obama’s fantasy cartoon “life of Julia” as the gospel. The only irony is, we live in a crooked world anyways, where Julia is either aborted, and if she’s not, then she’s a reject of society unless she throws herself on the radical, anti-religion altar.

"Puhleze, it was Gov. Palin who called this correctly."

From a national ticket - probably against McLame's best advisor's advice (duh - the global security expert vs. a hick governor from a wasteland).

The sad truth is that Obama’s comments to Romney are emblematic of what is routinely verbalized at most, if not all, major (i.e. overrated) universities in the country. This is why it is not a good idea to use tertiary education credentials as a criterion for choosing leaders. In fact, it's really a very bad idea, and has burned us over, and over.

Nonsense. Romney is an unadulterated RINO. We may not have the exact same problems, but the problems we would have would be more or less identical in reality.

Like it or not, Romney was as bad as Obama if not worse. He would have been a Republican who would have screwed everything up and simply put an even worse dem in the White House when he was ejected.

Romney worse than Obama?

So I guess you stayed home and didn't vote. Or maybe you voted for Obama. Thanks a lot.

To believe that Romney would have been a better choice that Obama is delusional. A screw up on par with Obama who has an (R) by his name is even worse for this country as the left would be more that happy to blame that Rino for every malfunction happening currently.

If you believe Romney would have been better you are insane, IMO.

As absurd as it gets. Let me guess - you either didn't vote or you voted for Obama to "teach Republicans a lesson", right?

Well...I don’t know about none of them, but a lot of them would be gone or never materialized simply by Obama being gone without Romney doing a thing...not to mention not another 4 years of Obama judicial appointments.

Once again, I live in CA. Tell me what difference my vote made.

This forum used to have an enormous number of intelligent conservatives post here. That trend has changed for the worse.

RE :”Well...I don’t know about none of them, but a lot of them would be gone or never materialized simply by Obama being gone without Romney doing a thing...not to mention not another 4 years of Obama judicial appointments.”

Romney is a super-rich white Mormon from a very liberal state MA where he was a single term GOP governor.

How could he possibly have lost the POTUS election with that resume ?

Maybe Romney would have been liberal on some social policies, but he would have put people back to work and probably would have been better on foreign policy.

Yep, Palin called it back in 2008 and the media called her a dingbat.

Looks like she was spot on as usual, but the media won’t mention it because their collective heads are too far up Obama’s ass to see the light.
