I don't THINK Romney wants a Menage a Trois....
Do you think we should be 'scared' of Hugo Chavez, or do you think that he's ".. not had a serious national security impact on us," as Obama told a reporter in Florida recently. Obama's calling Romney 'scared' of Chavez.....what do you think? Romney countered with:
"It is disturbing to see him downplaying the threat posed to U.S. interests by a regime that openly wishes us ill. Hugo Chavez has provided safe haven to drug kingpins, encouraged regional terrorist organizations that threaten our allies like Colombia, has strengthened military ties with Iran and helped it evade sanctions, and has allowed a Hezbollah presence within his country's borders," Romney said.
"And he is seeking to lead — together with the Castros — a destabilizing, anti-democratic, and anti-American 'Bolivarian Revolution' across Latin America," the former Massachusetts governor said, accusing Obama of having "emboldened adversaries and diminished U.S. influence in every region of the world."
My opinion is that Romney got it right. "Scared," or is it really WISE (r)? To my liberal readers, before you comment.....being aware of a threat does not mean we go bomb them off the face of the earth for the threat, so please don't even 'go there'... See, after four years of blogging, I can write your comments before you do.
Is Obama that desperate to look like the BIG POWERFUL PRESIDENT that he's throwing words like SCARED around for the media to latch on to? "ROMNEY SCARED"....very cunning.......and effective if Americans don't know better. Seems to me he's just playing to his base....who else is a fan of Hugo Chavez?Z
