Romney slams Obama for
´faulty judgment´ on Russia

Associated Press, by Kevin Freking

Original Article

Posted By:toledo, 3/23/2014 10:17:36 PM

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. 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. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

Obama´s excuse for a foreign policy is to do nothing until after an international situation develops.

Then makes bombastic speeches about how the offender will be brought to justice, think because he said it that will make it so.

Then he does his best to DO nothing to back it up.

I guess this is what he means by leading from behind.

And Romney was naïve when it came to campaigning against Obama, so what´s his point?

We´ve got plenty of R´s with policy ideas. Romney doesn´t have anything new or profound to say on the policy front. What we need are more conservative R´s talking about and executing tactics for winning elections and withholding things Dems need in order to move at least a few of our priorities along.

Every time I see Gov. Romney in an interview, I have to admit I have a pang of what could have been. However, it quickly turns to disappointment when I remember just how little he was willing to fight for this country. When it got tough, he caved. What a shame.

The damage Obama has done to this country is almost insurmountable. It will take a gargantuan effort to retain the House, take back the Senate and ultimately win the Presidency. If that comes to pass, it will take a will of iron to stay the course long enough to produce results. Progressives will not go quietly. They will fight at every turn. This all could have been avoided if the Republicans and Gov. Romney had the guts and understanding they needed to put up a real fight. As much as I admire Gov. Romney, his time has passed. When we needed a warrior, he just did not have it in him. We need a candidate with conservative values, a steely resolve, one who is one step ahead of the progressive media machine and understands defeat is not an option. That is not a description of any of the establishment want-a-be´s. Respectfully, Gov. Romney, your words are too little, too late.

Governor Romney was the best candidate we could field in both 2008 and 2012. I have nothing but the highest respect for the man and for his effort. Those of you who continue to carp wanted a yeller, an in-your-facer. That is clearly not Romney´s style and I cannot think of any of our candidates who matched that requirement. Perhaps Gingrich? So, Gingrich would have gotten in Obama´s face . What would that have accomplished? Certainly not a different election outcome, except the margin of Obama´s victory would have been even greater.

#12 not a yeller but someone unafraid to speak the truth. Both Romney (and McCain who almost switched parties in 200 and almost became Kerry´s running mate in 2004) showed an unnatural predilection to forego criticism of Obama solely because he was black. Enough said.

I agree with 7 about policy ideas. What the Rs need is a candidate with fortitude, and despite his fine grasp of business, the economy and conservativism (IN THEORY), Romney isn´t and wasn´t it. He refused to call Crowley on her obvious lie, or defend himself against daily scurrilous attacks from the left. And yes, I voted for him.

Senator Bag O´Hammers, in an attempt to refute Romney and support Obama, said that Putin is "a bully and we´ve got to call him for what he is. But this notion that some sanction is going to stop a former colonel in the KGB from his ambitions of a Russian empire is naïve."

Uh ... but isn´t that BARRY´s foreign policy? Standing up to Putin by cancelling his MasterCard, or something? Gotta love Durbin, the fencepost that just keeps on giving.

Romney is a loser. He could not even mobilize his base, let alone the rest of the voters.

Obama is a loser. He is losing all that makes the USA exceptional. This may be a purposeful strategy, but from the standpoint of American citizens, it still makes him a loser.

Do we have no winners to lead this country?

I am seeing a lot of people complaining about Romney not being perfect as the reason they didn´t support him.

#12 I really liked Romney and his family and I voted for him in the election. His problem was he went along with the GOP and their consultants. If your strategy is not to lose a campaign by challenging the incompetence of your opponent, then you are bound to lose by default.

If you look at the voting statistics and results, you will see that 55% of women voted for Obama. That is one category where Romney should have run away with. A majority of men voted for him. Of course, 96% of blacks voted for Obama, a purely racial voting statistic.

People who say that Conservatives didn´t vote and stayed home are just making that up. Conservatives always vote and always know that not voting is worse than voting for a person not up to your political standards, but better than a liberal radical.

It would have been better if Romney hadn´t just disappeared after his defeat. I´m sure he will back the wrong person in the next campaign. A GOP pick I´m sure with a campaign designed not to offend anyone.

The White House pushed back against a Republican subpoena for a top presidential adviser to testify this week, saying that summoning David Simas to Capitol Hill raised significant concerns about separation of powers.

Neil Eggleston wrote in a letter Monday to House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) that he would direct his staff to provide a briefing Tuesday on the White House Office of Political Strategy and Outreach.

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) got a rock-star reception during a standing-room-only campaign rally here Monday, as hundreds of liberal activists cheered her broadsides against corporate interests and voiced hopes that her presence might shift the political winds in an increasingly Republican state.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Nadine Gordimer, the South African writer whose literary ambitions led her into the heart of apartheid to create a body of fiction that brought her a Nobel Prize in 1991, died on Sunday in Johannesburg. She was 90. Her family announced her death in a statement. Ms. Gordimer did not originally choose apartheid as her subject as a young writer, she said, but she found it impossible to dig deeply into South African life without striking repression. And once the Afrikaner nationalists came to power in 1948, the scaffolds of the apartheid system began to rise around her and could not be

Last week, conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt interviewed Zach Carter, who is The Huffington Post‘s senior political economy reporter. The interview’s purpose was to discuss Carter’s negative response to Hewitt’s previous interview of former Vice President Dick Cheney. The interview was lively and interesting but it did not go well for Carter, who was forced to admit his ignorance of the historical context of the situation in Iraq. Looked at one way, the interview might almost seem like pointless point-scoring. In response to Hewitt’s questions, Carter admitted he didn’t know who Alger Hiss was and that he hadn’t read The Looming

Mark Zuckerberg’s immigration reform push had all the capital, connections and star power to merit success. But not even Silicon Valley could make this investment — and the Facebook founder’s first foray into national politics — pay off. Tech leaders poured millions into FWD.us, an immigration advocacy group that has dominated ad buys, launched elaborate hackathons and coddled conservatives in an effort to revamp the country’s immigration system. It galloped into the debate with the tech industry’s classic certainty but wound up facing the same obstacles that have halted reform for decades.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
