OBAMA'S TEAM SLAMS MITT ROMNEY'S FOREIGN TRIP....BUNCH OF SNIVELING BABIES!
President Barack Obama’s campaign team is throwing everything and the kitchen sink at Mitt Romney’s foreign-policy trip this week.
Romney is being too political but also not political enough, too aggressive and but also too timid, and will visit too few countries while holding too many fundraisers, according to three of Obama’s supporters during a July 23 telephone press conference arranged by the president’s re-election campaign.
The Romney campaign quickly pushed back. “In no region of the world is our country’s influence any stronger than it was four years ago,” said campaign spokesman Ryan Williams.
But Romney’s campaign response focused on Obama’s domestic role.
“President Obama has failed to restore our economy, is weakening our military with devastating defense cuts, and has diminished our moral authority [but] Governor Romney will restore the pillars of American strength to secure our interests and defend our values,” Williams said.
Obama’s aides used the July 23 press event to slam Romney for politicizing foreign-policy issues. This isn’t the time for anyone to be playing politics with our policy in the region,” said Colin Kahl, who formerly served as Obama’s deputy assistant secretary of defense for the Middle East.
According to Gibbs, Romney’s trip includes too many fundraisers, and appears to be “almost entirely built around fundraising.” Gibbs then said he would prefer not to comment about the subject, and instead would let Obama’s “surrogates get into that.”
Romney’s trip will take him to the United Kingdom on July 27, to Israel on July 29 and to Poland on July 30.
When asked why Obama has not visited Israel since 2008, Kahl dismissed the question. Great question!!!!!
