Uh…come again?

A couple months ago on the perpetual campaign trail Mitt Romney showed the kind of “evolving” contemporary foreign policy he envisioned.


Mitt Romney referred to Russia as the United State’s “number one geopolitical foe”

Romney really does think he is running against Jimmy Carter  (or possibly Daniel arup Moi — it really depends or who’s on the dais with him).

And now at a Memorial Day speech probably also attended by his sons Tag, Buffy, Joffrey, Jagoff and Poindexter, Romney added a wrinkle:

Speaking at a Memorial Day tribute event in San Diego with Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Mitt Romney honored the nation’s fallen and military families for their honorable service to their country, but he also warned of a shrinking military going the “course of Europe.”

“There are two courses we could follow in dangerous world,” Romney said. “The first is the course of Europe…and the other is the course of America.”

I’d say something snarky, but I have no fricking clue what that is even supposed to mean other than Europe = Bad; America = Good.

For Republicans maybe that is enough.

A message from the gleaners



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
