Romney: “[Sen.] Barack Obama [is] calling on radicals, jihadists of all different types, to come together in Iraq.”
(GREENWOOD, S.C.) — In a slip of the tongue, Republican Mitt Romney accused Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama of urging terrorists to congregate in Iraq, writes the AP’s rising star, Glen Johnson, in a story titled Romney Slip: Another Osama-Obama Mix-Up
In the midst of criticizing Obama and other Democrats on foreign and economic policy Tuesday, the GOP presidential hopeful said:
“Actually, just look at what Osam — Barack Obama — said just yesterday. Barack Obama, calling on radicals, jihadists of all different types, to come together in Iraq. That is the battlefield. … It’s almost as if the Democratic contenders for president are living in fantasyland. Their idea for jihad is to retreat, and their idea for the economy is to also retreat. And in my view, both efforts are wrongheaded.”
Romney apparently was referring to an audiotape aired Monday in which a speaker believed to be terrorist Osama bin Laden called for insurgents in Iraq to unite and avoid divisions. The authenticity of the tape aired on Al-Jazeera television could not be immediately confirmed … etc., etc.
There is never a dull moment when you ‘blog for Team Romney. Everyone should try it!—it’s fun, safe, healthy, and provides hours and hours of quality entertainment. And, in some small way, you just might help save this troubled republic of ours from the Romneys.
We love you, Mitt! Keep up the appallingly bad work.
