Mitt Rmoney And The 'Soviet' Threat

From Evan McMorris-Santoro of TPM we learn that three members of the Rmoney campaign, including Rmoney himself, have now publicly criticized Obama for foreign policy issues involving "the Soviet Union." I know there are many cosmological theories today involving a "multiverse" of multiple parallel universes, but I'd settle for an answer to a much smaller question: what planet do these people live on?

Seriously: since the demise of the Soviet Union in 1991, the GOP has cast about for a comparable bugbear to instill fear and loathing in the American people, and one would think that terrorists would fill that role today. But... no. They miss the days of the Soviet Union, when scaring the American people was as easy as displaying a bleeding red map. These people may live on the same planet we do, but they have not adapted their minds to the current era. While they recite formulaic denunciations of Obama's "Soviet Union policy," the rest of us have a real world to deal with. You want to know what terrorizes me? That's simple: Mitt Rmoney in a role in which he wields political power as well as financial. Now that's scary!


  1. Meanwhle his charm offensive in London has lacked charm and is pretty ofensive

  2. jams, Rmoney is nothing if not a total failure at diplomacy, national or personal. I tend to agree with the notion that he often doesn't know what he is saying and why it is offensive, but if that's the case, why in Dog's name should he be president?

  3. A president of the 20th century!

    Your truth dollars:

  4. Enfant - a president for the 1950s!

  5. John McCain told us and many people missed it. This is why he chose Palin instead of Rmoney - they are equally ignorant people, but she has a personality. I would also point out that between the Shrubbery and Rmoney the value of an MBA from Harvard's business school has been seriously downgraded.

    Given the people on the 'short list' of possible running mates, even die-hard Republicans are going to have a hard time staying awake long enough to vote.

  6. Comparing Romney’s tax returns to other presidents':
