    If you believe that the domestic economy isn't tied to the global economy I don't think anyone can possibly help you.
    OK then the big bad USA will continue to LOSE UNWINNABLE WARS, THAT DRAG ON FOR DECADES, and the deficit will climb Trillion's and Trillions higher, then I guess it doesn't matter if the President has a D or an R next to his name..

    That scenario sounds really healthy for our domestic economy huh? Let's get deeper and deeper into debt, to engage Russia and the middle east?? OLE!!!

    So I guess Iraq was all about the oil, just like I thought!!

Not that I ma a big fan of Romney, but the attacks on him in this thread are mindless.
    On that we agree. Romney has shown an ability to work with people who have a different political philosophy, something that Obama has not done. It's really too bad we didn't elect Romney in '12, but then, there's no guarantee that he would have been able to make that much of a difference. The Congress, or state legislature, has a lot to do with the success or failure of the federal (or state) government.

    And, there is a reason why the current Congress has a public approval rating just above that of ISIS.

    Are you still in school?

    Nobody said anything about unwindable wars. There are strategies, some sound, some not that would allow us to achieve our goals with the major current problem ISIS. They involve aiding the Kurds and also aiding Egypt and it's mounting problem with it's neighbor Libya. We are on a path to a nuclear Iran and an arms race with neighboring countries that could decimate the region.

    Here's a thought for you. Your thoughts and Ideas about the Middle East are very shallow.

    Mitt Romney's dad was a decent fellow but I have no use for Mitt.

    He's a guy who was born on third base and thinks that he hit a home run.

    Thanks for posting this. Not, judging from your OP, that you had the slightest interest in the content of the linked article.

    From the WaPo article: The presentation hinted at the kind of president Romney would have been — technocratic and hawkish. At one point, he showed how he would have reorganized the State Department bureaucracy by dividing the map into color-coded regions to exert soft power, much the way military commanders do at the Pentagon.

    There still seem to be numerous liberals who act as if Obama just strolled into office last week rather than more than 6 years ago. That Obama may have inherited a mess is no longer the issue. That what he inherited is now much worse, is. Blaming Bush in year 7 of the Obama administration is nothing more than an admission of the failure of the Obama administration

    That's as ill-informed as your previous posts. Guess you've never heard of the checks and balances of power.

    To with: Romney the sole person(s) to blame for Mass jobs malaise? No.

    State legislature to blame for the Mass jobs malaise? No.

    Blame them both? Most reasonable and probably most accurate.

    I suppose some have to root for their team, and if the opposite team has the executive branch, you lay blame there. If the opposite team has the legislative branch, that's the problem.
    The governor's role, much like the presidents, is to lead the executive branch as well as to lead the legislature, compromising when needed in some cases, and sticking to position and principal in some cases when needed to accomplish 'the art of the possible' which is what politics is all about.

    The end result, which is the over all goal of this form of government, is to do what's best for the electorate both in the short term and the longer term. It's not about winning for your team, nor scorched earth political combat, at least from my view.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    Typical response from a progressive who doesn't know much about Romney...except that he doesn't like him.

    1. Not aware (consciously, I think) that Romney has successfully run operations that are much more complicated than a taco stand.

    But hey, I'll be happy to educate you (shove in your face, that is) on his accomplishments by providing freely available information about him.

    Raised in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, by his parents George and Lenore Romney, Mitt Romney spent two and a half years in France as a Mormon missionary starting in 1966. He married Ann Davies in 1969, and their five children are all sons. By 1971, Romney had participated in the political campaigns of both of his parents. In that year, he earned a Bachelor of Arts at Brigham Young and in 1975, a joint Juris Doctor and Master of Business Administration at Harvard. Romney then entered the management consulting industry and in 1977 secured a position at Bain & Company. Later serving as its chief executive officer, he helped lead the company out of financial crisis. In 1984, he cofounded and led the spin-off company Bain Capital, a highly profitable private equity investment firm that became one of the largest of its kind in the nation. Active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Romney served during his business career as the bishop of his ward (head of his local congregation) and then stake president in his home area near Boston. After stepping down from Bain Capital and his local leadership role in the church, he ran as the Republican candidate in the 1994 Massachusetts election for U.S. Senate. Upon losing to longtime incumbent Ted Kennedy, he resumed his position at Bain Capital. Years later, a successful stint as president and CEO of the Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the 2002 Winter Olympics led to a relaunch of his political career.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitt_Romney
    Oh...and yeah...as a Republican, he was elected Governor of one of the most liberal States, Democratic strongholds and home to Ted Kennedy. Sounds to ME like he did much more than "run a taco stand".

    2. Again, in typical progressive fashion you decline to address the actual topic of this thread...that is, Romney's assessment of Obama's foreign policy. I'm thinking you don't really have a defense for Obama, do you?
