Romney’s absurd statements becoming more absurd

In a speech before the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) convention in Reno, Nevada Tuesday, Presumptive Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney said President Barack Obama has “Diminished American leadership” around the world. And in other words, those who want America to be the strongest nation on earth should vote for him…Romney. However, “If you do not want America to be the strongest nation on earth, I am not your president,” said Romney. “You have that president today.”

How absurd! It’s a clear cut remark from the old cliché, Talk comes cheap. And simply because one makes a statement doesn’t deem it the absolute truth. This is just a sack full of empty words, all about politics, with no concrete evidence to back it up.

Said Romney: “I will not surrender America’s leadership in the world. We must have confidence in our cause, clarity in our purpose, and resolve in our might.”

Certainly, during President Obama’s three years in office, not once has he surrendered America’s leadership in the world, and he has not been “apologetic” to other countries as some Leadership Republicans claim. It only amounts to more undeserved Obama bashing of the lowest caliber.

Yet, while talking to VFW participants, Romney didn’t mention that he had sought and received four draft deferments from military service during the Vietnam War, according to Selective Service records.
