UPDATE FROM VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN ON MTT ROMNEY’S VFW SPEECH: Thanks for BREAKING IT, DOWN MR, VP!

Over the past three years, President Obama has taken the fight directly to America’s enemies, confronting al-Qaeda head on and taking out Osama bin Laden. He ended the war in Iraq responsibly and has a plan to do the same in Afghanistan. He has done more for Israel’s security than any President since Harry Truman, led international efforts to put the most pressure in history on Iran, protected the people of Libya from a brutal dictator and helped rebuild our alliances across the globe. He saved our economy from collapse with bold decisions, including the rescue of the automobile industry – which has made us stronger abroad. Because of President Obama’s leadership, Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive.

“Today, Governor Romney had an opportunity to fulfill a long-standing promise by laying out his foreign policy vision and agenda. He had a chance to say how he would lead as Commander-in-Chief. Instead, all we heard from Governor Romney was empty rhetoric and bluster. He reflexively criticizes the President’s policies without offering any alternatives. When he does venture a position, it’s a safe bet that he previously took exactly the opposite position and will probably change his mind again and land in the wrong place – far out of the mainstream. Or he mischaracterizes our record to create a non-existent contrast.

On Afghanistan:

“Governor Romney supported the President’s timeline to end the war in Afghanistan, then he opposed it and now it is hard to know where he stands. His misguided criticism of the President’s new defense strategy is undermined by the fact that strategy was designed with and supported by the entire Defense Department senior leadership, uniform and civilian. It provides for a more agile, flexible force, better able to confront aggressors and project power, with strong partnerships to share the burden and smart investments in cutting edge capabilities. We proposed a budget to fully fund that strategy and keep faith with our veterans.

On Russia:

“When it comes to Russia – which he recently called “our number one geo-political foe” – Governor Romney remains mired in a Cold War mindset. We have serious disagreements with Moscow, but our cooperation has made the American people more secure. Russia cancelled the sale of cutting edge radar to Iran and joined us in imposing the toughest sanctions in history on Tehran. Together, we negotiated a major nuclear arms reduction treaty – New START – that virtually the entire Republican foreign policy establishment supported but Governor Romney and a very small group of Cold War holdovers opposed.

On Poland and missile defense:

“On the eve of his trip to Poland, the Governor is either profoundly misinformed – or misinforming the American people. He asserts that the President abandoned a missile defense system in that country. President Obama asked me to secure Allied support for a new missile defense plan for Europe. Who did we ask to host its main components? Poland, along with Turkey, Romania, Germany and Spain. These countries and all of NATO embraced our approach because it protects more of Europe more quickly than the old plan.

On Israel:

“Governor Romney continues his long litany of untruths about our administration’s policies toward Israel. We’ve provided record levels of security assistance, funding for the Iron Dome missile defense system that intercepted nearly 80 percent of the rockets recently fired from Gaza, close collaboration on longer range missile defense systems, the largest joint military exercises in history, the most consistent and comprehensive exchanges ever between our top political, defense, security and intelligence officials. And, contrary to Governor Romney’s outrageous accusation that the President joined in the chorus of insults levied against Israel at the United Nations, President Obama has stood up repeatedly, publicly and often alone against efforts to delegitimize Israel at the U.N. and around the world.

On Iran:

“On Iran, Governor Romney does a compelling job laying out exactly what the Administration is already doing. The only step he seems to think we should take that we are not already taking is to launch a war. If that is what the Governor is for, he should tell the American people.

On al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden:

“One thing the Governor did not talk about today was al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden. That’s not surprising. When he last ran for President, Governor Romney was asked what he would do about bin Laden. He said then: ‘it is not worth moving heaven and earth spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person.’ We know how Obama answered that question: by ordering our intelligence services to leave no stone unturned in the hunt for bin Laden, and then authorizing one of the highest risk missions ever to capture or kill our number one enemy.

“Thanks to President Obama’s leadership, bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive — and everything we have learned from Governor Romney today and during this campaign tells the American people that a Romney presidency would have resulted in just the opposite.”

    Romney Struggles To Distinguish His Economic Policies From Bush’s
    By Igor Volsky on Jul 25, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    Mitt Romney couldn’t substantially distinguish his economic policies from former President George W. Bush’s during an interview with NBC’s Brian Williams on Wednesday, saying only that he would “take action to get America on track to have a balanced budget.” Bush increased the national debt by trillions of dollars.

    Rather than detailing specific differences with the former Republican president — whose deregulatory policies and massive tax cuts have been blamed for the nation’s current economic recession — Romney described his economic approach with his standard to his four-part talking points:

    WILLIAMS: And let’s talk about domestic– the economy before we wrap things up. The major planks of your job plan, lower taxes, both corporate and marginal rates, and reduce regulation. Explain how that would be different from what George W. Bush tried to push through?

    ROMNEY: Well, let me describe– actually, there are five things that I believe are necessary to get this economy going. One, take advantage of our energy resources, particularly natural gas, but also coal, oil, nuclear, renewables. That’s number one. A huge opportunity for us, and doing so is gonna bring manufacturing back, because low-cost, plentiful energy is key to manufacturing, in many industries.

    Romney’s reckless rhetoric
    By Chris Coons, Special to CNN
    July 25, 2012 — Updated 1254 GMT (2054 HKT)

    CNN) — When Mitt Romney took the stage at the annual VFW convention Tuesday, he had a chance to finally offer serious ideas for strengthening U.S. foreign policy and how, if elected president, he would keep our nation secure.

    He didn’t take it.

    Missing yet another opportunity to show meaningful leadership, the former Massachusetts governor instead chose to offer more empty rhetoric cloaked in patriotic bravado. His campaign appears more focused on mocking the successful foreign policy of President Barack Obama, who has undoubtedly made America safer, than on revealing exactly how a Romney administration would engage with the world.

    Refusing to acknowledge our nation’s recent successes in global leadership, Romney again on Tuesday pivoted to the shallow rhetoric at the core of his campaign: boasts of American exceptionalism with no mention of partnership with our allies; promises of radically increased military spending without clarity about its mission; and provocative language toward countries such as China and Russia that even a member of his own party has criticized.

    YOU’RE NOT FIT TO LEAD, MITT ROMNEY

    Statement from Vice President Biden on the Start of Governor Romney’s Foreign Trip

    Vice President Joe Biden released the following statement today in reaction to the start of Governor Romney’s foreign trip:

    “Despite his promises that politics stops at the water’s edge, Governor Romney’s wheels hadn’t even touched down in London before his advisors were reportedly playing politics with international diplomacy, attempting to create daylight between the United States and the United Kingdom where none exists. Our special relationship with the British is stronger than ever and we are proud to work hand-in-hand with Prime Minister Cameron to confront every major national security challenge we face today. On every major issue — from Afghanistan to missile defense, from the fight against international terrorism to our success in isolating countries like Iran whose nuclear programs threaten peace and stability — we’ve never been more in sync. The comments reported this morning are a disturbing start to a trip designed to demonstrate Governor Romney’s readiness to represent the United States on the world’s stage. Not surprisingly, this is just another feeble attempt by the Romney campaign to score political points at the expense of this critical partnership. This assertion is beneath a presidential campaign.”

    CAMPAIGN 2012
    Romney Campaign Disputes ‘Anglo-Saxon Heritage’ Remark

    Mitt Romney’s campaign disputed a report in The Telegraph in which an unnamed adviser suggested that the Republican nominee better understands the American relationship with Great Britain than does President Obama, whose father was born in Africa.

    “It’s not true,’’ said campaign spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg. “If anyone said that, they weren’t reflecting the views of Governor Romney or anyone inside the campaign.”

    The London paper quoted an unnamed adviser saying, “We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and [Romney] feels that the special relationship is special. The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have.’’

    Asked to be specific about what wasn’t true – whether the quote was fabricated or whether the sentiment was inaccurate – the campaign did not immediately respond.

    Romney arrived in London on Wednesday on his first foreign trip as the GOP’s presidential candidate; he will meet there with British Prime Minister David Cameron. Romney is also scheduled to visit Israel and Poland.

    Speaking with members of Romney’s foreign-policy advisory team, The Telegraph quoted one calling Obama “a left-winger” and saying, “He doesn’t value the [NATO] alliance as much; he’s very comfortable with American decline, and the traditional alliances don’t mean as much to him. He wouldn’t like singing ‘Land of Hope and Glory.’ ”

    FROM THE TRUTH TEAM

    TEN OF ROMNEY’S FOREIGN POLICY FAILURES:

    Two hundred and ninety-one days after his last foreign policy speech, Mitt Romney stood up once more to deliver a major foreign policy plan and—once again—failed to offer any new or even credible policy ideas.

    Romney has long displayed a significant lack of knowledge and experience over the years when it comes to foreign policy. But the commander-in-chief only has one chance to make the right decision. Here’s a look at ten times Romney and his campaign got it wrong:

    1. 1.Romney “has been especially vague about how many U.S. forces he would keep in Afghanistan” and has no detailed plan for our engagement in the country.

    Dear VoteVets.org Supporter,

    Today, Mitt Romney will be addressing the Veterans of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. While I’m sure Governor Romney will say a lot of nice things about Veterans, his rhetoric cannot be separated from the harsh reality of what his proposals would mean for Veterans. It’s up to you, though, to get the word out.

    That’s why we’ve set up an easy tool for you to send an email to all of your friends and family, explaining just what a Romney Presidency would mean for American Veterans.

    SEND AN EMAIL ABOUT ROMNEY’S HARSH VETS PROPOSALS TO YOUR FRIENDS, HERE:

    http://org2.democracyinaction.org/o/6676/p/salsa/web/tellafriend/public/?tell_a_friend_KEY=9178

    From cutting funding for (or even privatizing) the Department of Veterans Affairs, to endless war in Afghanistan, there’s a lot to fear about what a Romney Presidency would mean for Veterans. This absolutely has to get out there, so people know what is at stake.

    Take a moment to click here, and tell all of your friends and family what Romney would mean for Veterans. It’s too important not to.

    Thanks for your support.

    VFW hears two very different perspectives

    By Steve Benen

    In Romney Land, it makes sense to condemn timelines in Afghanistan, then promise to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan “by 2014.” In Romney Land, it makes sense to blame a Democratic president for budget cuts demanded by congressional Republicans. In Romney Land, as American prestige and credibility is on the rise around the globe, it makes sense to say America’s image has been “diminished.”

    But it was this line from his speech that I found especially hard to stomach:

    “This is very simple: if you do not want America to be the strongest nation on earth, I am not your president. You have that president today.”

    Think about that for a second: in Mitt Romney’s mind, as of today, the United States is no longer the strongest nation on earth. He felt comfortable leveling this attack against American strength to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, no less.

      July 24, 2012
      Romney’s VFW speech: an absolute obscenity
      PM Carpenter

      Mitt Romney’s speech to the VFW, to which I’m presently retching, is an absolute obscenity. Romney is howling about Obamian treachery and all manner of the sitting president’s unpresidential rule. It is truly sickening and indescribably revolting.

      Each day I wonder if Mitt Romney can possibly sink any lower, if he can slither any more viperly, if can debase himself and his party any more spectacularly than he already has. Each day, based on Mitt’s preceding day of utter abominations, I think “no,” it’s just not possible. This is as low and slimy as it–as he–can get.

      And then a new day dawns, and Mitt speaks somewhere, and I’m proved tragically mistaken.

      I see that Mitt has just wrapped up. Having heard what I just heard, I’m going to once again venture that there is simply no way Mitt Romney can possibly sink any lower than he did today.

      Now let’s watch, and see tomorrow how he achieves the impossible.
