Presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney chose Memorial Day of all days to declare to the American people his conviction that the world is a dangerous place, and the United States must remain its most formidable military power. Instead of honoring fallen Americans during wartime, Mitt morphed into George W. Bush on steroids (which took little effort).
Apparently, Mitt hasn’t heard the news; America is too broke to police the world.
“The world is not safe,” Romney told veterans on Memorial Day. He was joined by Senator John McCain, in a speech to honor the veterans of America’s wars.
The United States now has two paths forward, Romney said. He called one “the pathway to Europe,” suggesting Europe had acquiesced to geopolitical threats. “To shrink our military smaller and smaller to pay for our social needs.”
The other path, Romney said, is “to commit to preserve America as the strongest military in the world, second to none, with no comparable power anywhere in the world.”
“I wish I could tell you that the world is a safe place. It’s not,” Romney said. Part of the reason, would be because our politicians garner support from their party by sounding the war drums. America already spends almost as much as the rest of the world combined in military expenditures.
Mitt’s kids go to the best schools while being raised in mansions but it’s your kids that will go to war. Mitt is just another draft dodging, war touting politician.
