We've all heard a million times that politics is supposed to end at
the water's edge—politicians are supposed to fight things out at home
but not take partisan politics abroad. But although it's a political
norm rising to the level of cliche, apparently Mitt Romney and his
advisers are going to go ahead and campaign against President Obama
where, when, and how they like, longstanding etiquette be damned. R.
Glenn Hubbard, one of Romney's senior economic advisers,
has written an op-ed in a top German newspaper explicitly taking aim at
Obama's economic policies in the context of European austerity.
Some of the Obama administration's "recommendations are not only
unwise," he wrote, "they also reveal ignorance of the causes of the
crisis and of a growth trend in the future." By contrast, says Romney
adviser Hubbard, "Mitt Romney, Obama’s Republican opponent, understands
this very well and advises a gradual fiscal consolidation for the U.S.:
structural reform to stimulate growth." So that's a newsflash: The guy
advising Romney on economic policy thinks Romney's economic policy is
"In a foreign news outlet, Governor Romney’s top economic
adviser both discouraged essential steps that need to be taken to
promote economic recovery and attempted to undermine America’s foreign
policy abroad," said Ben LaBolt, press secretary for the president’s
Steve Benen points out that this is not the first time Romney or his
campaign has violated the notion that politics should stop at the
water's edge; in March, "the Republican condemned
President Obama while the president was representing the U.S. overseas
(a move that even drew a rebuke from House Speaker John Boehner)."
Also, it almost goes without saying that the policies Hubbard is advocating are economically disastrous.http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/06/11/1099144/-Romney-econ...
