>> Mitt Romney looked the part of commander in chief. In a crisply delivered speech before a bevy of flags at the Virginia Military Institute he looked, as the campaign planned, as if he might already be the president. The speech, as expected, was an indictment of Obama’s failed leadership. Romney highlighted the career of George Marshall, a VMI graduate. (“General Marshall once said, ‘The only way human beings can win a war is to prevent it.’ Those words were true in his time — and they still echo in ours.”) The focus on Libya was both effective and pronounced: “The attacks against us in Libya were not an isolated incident. .....He was careful to commend Obama for slaying Osama bin Laden, but he contrasted that success with failures on Iran and Syria. In one of his strongest passages, he asserted: “Iran today has never been closer to a nuclear weapons capability. It has never posed a greater danger to our friends, our allies, and to us. And it has never acted less deterred by America, as was made clear last year when Iranian agents plotted to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador in our nation’s capital. And yet, when millions of Iranians took to the streets in June of 2009, when they demanded freedom from a cruel regime that threatens the world, when they cried out, ‘Are you with us, or are you with them?’—the American President was silent.” <<http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/post/romney-t...arrete
Mitt's speech was simply great, in my opinion, and should change a lot of minds.http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/10/08/full-transc...
Obama waffled three times on killing Bin Laden.http://www.nypost.com/p/news/international/hill_swayed_to_ki...Hillary Rodham Clinton talked a reluctant President Obama into killing Osama bin Laden — after the president canceled plans for the mission three times, an explosive new book claims.He was afraid he would get blamed if something went wrong, ala Jimmy Carter's fiasco. Solid steady leadership. Even Clinton balked at the Saudi's offer to turn over OBL. What is is about liberals?

Did you guys see where even Forbes calls out Romney on his lies?http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2012/10/08/romney-fore..."Romney Foreign Policy Speech Brings More Lies And Reversals In Positions"So it appears that Romney's new strategy is to tell more lies to win. I can see why he has so many supporters on this forum.
