Romney slams Obama for "faulty judgment" on Russia
KWWL.com ^ | March 23, 2014 | Kevin Freking

Posted on 03/23/2014 9:30:23 AM PDT by Biggirl

WASHINGTON (AP) - Mitt Romney says President Barack Obama could have done more to persuade Russia not to annex Crimea.

Romney says Obama didn't have the foresight to anticipate Russia's intentions.

During the 2012 presidential race, Romney took criticism from Obama for saying Russia was America's "number one geopolitical foe" - not al-Qaida.

Romney is right.

That said, can he please stand aside?

He lost. Cruz stop worrying about healthcare, and start pounding Obama about the real problems.

Like American jobs. And Russian expansion.

He was running around slamming the Tea Pary canidates in Idaho the other day.Telling the peeps to vote for the GOP E canidate and not go off into right field. Mittens is such a slammer...If he had gone after Obama like he does conservative GOP he might actually have won the election.

It sure would be nice to see Romney blast the Democrats (and Republican Establishment) on a couple of other issues, such as GUN CONTROL and AMNESTY. After all, he TOLD US that he strongly opposes both...but not a peep.

Instead he tries to goad Obama into starting World War 3.

He got shouted down by Candy Cruller when he brought up Benghazi in the debate and never brought it up again for the rest of the campaign.

Romney was right about lots of things but to the hard core anti-Romney haters it was and still is hard to see the light.

Miss Romney yet? Think if some of you are able.

Persuade?

This from the guy who cowered during the debates because Crowley countered him when Obama cried out for her to get the transcript.

Romney is another toothless tiger like John McCain and Lindsey Graham.

Romney is making noise because he is toying with the idea of running again. Maybe, he hopes CNN will have a different moderator in 2016.

Dare I make a simple appropriate comment on this?

The comment that Obama's judgment is faulty on Russia is correct.

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn't have the foresight to anticipate Russia's moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine.

LOL. In other words there is nothing Romney could have done to prevent it either.

Romney cleaned up with Independents.

He not only lost to Jimmy Carter’s second term, he is the first candidate to win hugely with Independents, and lose the election.

Typical Romney apologist/supporter. Insulting and condescending.

Not to mention dead WRONG.

Illogical emotional me (your original screen name is an oxymoron), I only wish I could "miss" Romney but the bastard keeps on rising from his coffin like a frikkin' vampire. Romney was bad news and destructive to conservatism in 2008, Romney was WORSE news and MORE destructive in 2012, and it is looking very much like he will be THE WORST and MOST DESTRUCTIVE news in 2016.

Take your own advice and think about it, please, if you are able, which I know you are.

If you really want to see conservatism make headway in America, ILlogical me, you will start CLAMORING for Romney to get the hell out of the Republican party.

Sadly, old Mitt fits in quite nicely with today's Republican Party, as does McConnell, Christie, McCain, and Ryan. Politicians like Cruz and Mike Lee are storming the GOPe ramparts.

No way Romney runs again. Even the RINOs don’t have Mitt on their radar.

2007: NO WAY John McCain gets the nomination! Absolutely impossible, ridiculous!

2011: NO WAY Romney gets the nomination! Absolutely impossible, he's toast!

I am fully prepared, and am telling others to be prepared, for a Uniparty dilemma in 2016 very much like the Uniparty dilemma we faced in 2008 (except for fluke Palin, whom I voted FOR) and in 2012. The GOP nominee may or may not be Romney (though frankly, I think it will be), but regardless, it will be the GOPe's big-government leftist vs the Democrat's big-government leftist.

We had better start pondering and analyzing NOW the possibilities and opportunities that third party dynamics can bring to 2016 that ASSIST conservatism. Third party dynamics certainly aided conservatism both times Perot ran, even though Clinton won. Let's assess and learn from history.

And repeat until it finally sinks in: voting "against" is necessarily, by definition, mathematically AND materially one hundred percent illusion. Totally PRETEND.

The ONLY power any American has is to vote FOR. Deal with it.

"Cruz stop worrying about healthcare, and start pounding Obama about the real problems."

Look, I know you are on record here as saying you support Obamacare. Your delusions aside, that piece of unConstitutional legislation is, in itself, a destroyer of jobs....not to mention the agent that will wreck lives when people need medical care.

Just saying.

I am a conservative, and I strongly advocate for American businesses.

But I think Obamacare has indeed served a purpose, in providing a neutral coverage. That is what I like, and support. Just that part, but I strongly do.

I do not use it, but if I lose my job I likely will, at least while I am searching for a new job.

Please remember, we are also meanwhile shipping jobs by the absolute ton, to communist China. So every day, America’s jobs become ever more hard to keep.

I strongly believe the GOP needs to support that fall-back plan, and needs to support that before they do anything else. And BRING BACK AMERICAN JOBS too.

My partial support for Obamacare however is an issue which puts me at odds with just about everyone else on this site, so I better wrap my comment and shut up now.

:D

The only way a conservative could say he supports Obamacare and American business in the same breath is if said “conservative” is insane.

Obama stole the election.

That he did. Most leftists -- Al Franken, Pelosi, Reid -- stole their offices. By all reasonable observations, almost 2 in 3 Americans rejects leftism and resents intrusive government. Maybe a little more than one in three is leftist. Well, that one third minority has seized control of government force (Geo. Washington said government is a force) by negating the legitimate votes of the other two thirds, the majority.

Obama's a symptom. The cause is a vulnerable franchise made that way by a force so blatant that it doesn't even require voter ID.

Sorry, CNN, but your "partial support" for ObamaCare is a Conservatism 101 issue, at least to me! You have to get that founding principle of limited government. If it goes over your head, in my mind, you're not ready for 1-the 201 level yet. I'm sorry, but glad you vote Republican.

But it helps explain why you're so fixated on "bring back American jobs!" without ever addressing the reasons they're gone.

Just saying.

I am signed up for the company health plan. Have been for about 15 years.

During this time, our company has been laying off American employees. Hundreds, maybe thousands have been laid off thus far, and I am now just waiting.

I’m series. Completely series. I have had treatment for something which means, I will (not) receive that coverage if I leave my current insurance policy.

Unfortunately, that is likely. At any time.

I now have a policy available as a fall-back plan, which will cover that.

I hate to say it, but that is Obamacare.

That is all completely true. 100%

You may or may not believe it, but I’m telling you the complete truth.

That is why I am for Obamacare.

Just saying. That is why. Because of it, I am covered if I lose my current insurance because I get laid off.

And that seems (VERY) likely at some point.

You are welcome to disagree, but I am I believe completely speaking the truth.

Republicans, we need to pay attention, I do not believe I am the only voter in this situation.

I really don’t.

Mittens—You got Nunthin’ to lose! Blast Obama with a ‘Mormon Knuckle sandwich’ Rip him up one side and then the other! Bush didn’t do it—but you can do the nation a service by helping to rid us of this Incompetent Clown and his Possie. Expose him for the worthless thing he is—and you can blast his Obamacare like no one else—as he took the Idea from You.
You aint going to run for President again—best you might earn is a VP spot under a conservative. You might find it fun to rip the smiling mask off this Progressive-neo-communist. Mitt, I didn’t like you but I voted for ya— Now your nation, the country you love, needs you to help show the truth about the most corrupt president in American History. You will be doing the Lords work.

And no one will ever convince me that he “lost” the election fair and square. More than likely, it was stolen from him and he didn’t have the foresight to see it coming. Those RINOs are way too trusting of the DEMS.

FoxNews played a clip this morning of Romney saying he is not running in 2016.

That and Christie's recent bridge-mess opens the GOPelite preference for Jeb Bush, who has been making noise about running.

Just a few weeks ago, FoxNews had a survey that showed 50% still blaming brother George for the economy. The Bush name is still TOXIC.
