Leadership

I’m sure the Romney campaign will want to take credit for this idea too. You know, just like he wants to take credit for the auto bailout, even though he infamously pinned a column titled “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt.”

After a massacre of civilians on Friday night in Syria — including dozens of children — which the U.N. strongly hinted was perpetrated by government forces, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney blamed the Obama administration for not taking decisive enough action against the Syrian regime.

The plan Romney and his aides proposed to deal with the crisis, however, sounds a lot like the one Obama administration officials discussed with press just a few days before. “The United States should work with partners to organize and arm Syrian opposition groups so they can defend themselves,” the campaign said in a release on Sunday. […]

If all that sounds familiar, it might be because, three days before the Romney statement, that’s exactly what Obama administration officials told the AP they were setting a plan in motion to do.

Mitt Romney — a man you can count on to go where other men have gone before and follow the lead of others. That is unless he finds himself surrounded by birthers, then all bets are off.

    “The United States should work with partners to organize and arm Syrian opposition groups so they can defend themselves,”

    And what if the rebels are even worse scum than the current regime?

      Oh come on, we could never create another bin laden (or saddam, or noriega, or …)

    Mitt Romney and his partners at Bain Capital have declared this a dark day for freedom and the American dream. A day that will live in infamy, like the Chinese defector last month.

    Mitt Romney and his partners at Bain Capital vow to arm the Syrian rebels better than president Obama, and will demonstrate to the world that Mitt Romney and his partners at Bain Capital will not tolerate President Obama’s caution at home or abroad.

    Because Mitt Romney and his partners at Bain Capital want Americans to get top dollar rebellion for their hard earned money, Mitt Romney and his partners at Bain Capital will spare no expense in cutting taxes to prevent socialism from taking root in Syrian abortion clinics.

      Careful. The Romney campaign might incorporate your comment into their next foreign-policy press release.

        Mitt Romney and his partners at Bain Capital are going to buy this comment, strip it down, fire the snark and sell the remaining adjectives and verbs off in pieces to a broken English class in China all for a sweet profit.
