“Mitt Romney’s Easy Five-Step Approach to Foreign Policy” Obama for America YouTube Debunked (4th Edition)
In the Obama For America ad ”Mitt Romney’s Easy Five-Step Approach to Foreign Policy”, they said that the first step was:
1. Get the facts wrong”.
OFA claims Romney lied about claiming President Obama hadn’t called the attack in Benghazi a terrorist attack. However, my article debunked that statement.
There you have it. Obama and the Administration lied. They lied to you and me, and they lied in front of the United Nations. Truth is that the attack in our consulate in Benghazi was premeditated and an act of terror. Why did this administration claim it was a movie that did it? Why did they blame our free speech in America instead of putting blame on who really did it, terrorists? I’m not sure.
So, when you see Mr. Obama in his debate on Monday, I want you to know he told you a blatant lie in the Rose Garden, he lied to you for two weeks, and then, he finally told the truth after being caught in his lie. A man who lies for two weeks and lies in front of the United Nations is not a man who should be leading us.
2. “Undermine long-standing relationships with your allies”
They use Romney’s trip to Britain as the example. I guess no one told OFA that Mitt Romney was actually quoting a newspaper when he said that he didn’t think England was ready for the Olympics. He himself didn’t really mean what the media made it look like he said.
Also, if we’re really talking about undermining long-standing relationships with your allies, what about when Obama called Nazi death camps, “Polish death camps” or when Obama said he wanted to put “daylight” between the US and Israel? That doesn’t sound like creating good relationships with your long-standing allies to me!
3. Frequently highlight your lack of experience
Wrong again. While the video does show clips of Romney saying that he has to consult with others, he himself does not say he cannot handle foreign policy. He just makes sure to check with people who have been doing it longer than he has to make sure he is in the right place. Since when is it wrong to check with others to make sure you’re alright?
If OFA really wants to show someone’s lack of experience why don’t we start with the president. besides the “polish death camps” and Israel comment mentioned earlier, look at the middle east. It’s a mess. Iran is growing closer to bomb if they don’t already have one. Egypt has been taken over by the Muslim Brotherhood who wants to impose Sharia Law and name Jerusalem the new capital of Egypt. Who can we thank? Barack Obama.
4. Assemble a team of ideologues committed to war
“Committed to war”? Really? Just because you have Bush advisers doesn’t mean much of anything. However, when your Secretary of the Treasury hasn’t paid his own taxes, you have more czars than ever before, and the State Department lied to the American people for two weeks, I think that’s a bit more!
5. Mistake your enemies
“Russia…is our number one geopolitical foe”. Now is that the best statement? No. However, who is our biggest foe now? I’d vote for Iran. Now who has been blocking sanctions on Iran? Russia. Who has been given arms to Iran? Russia. Who has been given lots of money to Iran? Russia. While Russia might not be number one, they are not helping us, but helping our enemies. Russia remains a foe in 2012.
Again, let’s get an Obama comparison! Obama hasn’t really seen anyone as our foe. Why, he started his term with an apology tour in the middle east!
The video ends with a rather passive aggressive remark of, “Follow these easy steps, and your foreign policy is sure to get results” and “Mitt Romney’s blunders prove he’s just not ready to lead”.
Really OFA? Because the Obama foreign policy was led to an almost nuclear Iran (if they don’t already have a bomb) and the rest of the middle east in flames. Yes, I’m sure the Obama foreign policy is going quite well, **eyeroll**.
A man like Barack Obama who has failed us in so many ways including foreign policy just isn’t ready for a second term. Vote Mitt Romney 2012.
