Personally, I think it’s obvious that Newt is just trying to get on Mitt’s good side, so that some moon base funding will come open if things go right. Just looking ahead.
But, hanging around in Paris on your dad’s dime constitutes foreign policy experience?? I wonder how Mitt did in the convert business,…… he doesn’t seem to be able to connect to the common man too well.
Plus,… we all saw that he’s a little shaky outside the US, —– an awful tendency to insult people. Not intentionally, of course.
I’m assuming he’s an ace with exchange rates. The Cayman people probably keep him up on that sort of thing.
I would have loved for someone to have asked why dodging the Vietnam draft as a missionary in France is in any way, shape or form something that qualifies as foreign policy credentials, but sadly, neither the host Candy Crowley or the other guest, Bill Richardson said a word about it to Newt Gingrich when he made these remarks.
Newt Gingrich outlined Mitt Romney’s credentials on foreign policy in an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, ahead of Monday’s final presidential debate on foreign policy.
Gingrich mentioned Romney’s time spent abroad as a missionary, his work at Bain Capital which was an international company, his dabbling in foreign policy as the governor of Massachusetts, and finally his work with other nations while running the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
Gingrich also took aim at Obama’s foreign policy, which he said was falling apart in the Middle East.
No one bothered to point out that Romney has surrounded himself with George W. Bush’s foreign policy team and what that might mean for us if we’re unfortunate enough to see him elected either.
