Scaring children

Dear Lord, Mittens is shameless:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday warned an 11-year-old boy that the world would be one step closer to nuclear war if President Barack Obama was allowed another term in office.

“If Barack Obama gets re-elected, Iran will have a nuclear weapon and the world will change if that’s the case,” the former Massachusetts governor told a crowd in Snellville, Georgia.

“This president failed to speak out when the dissidents took the streets in Tehran, he had nothing to say,” Romney declared. “This is a president who has failed to put in place crippling sanctions against Iran. He’s also failed to communicate that military options are on the table and in fact in our hand. And that it’s unacceptable to America for Iran to have a nuclear weapon. I will have those military options, I will take those crippling sanctions and put them in place, and I will speak out to the Iranian people about the peril of them becoming nuclear.”

  1. Well, I’d thought Mittens might be able to use the Daisy-type ad from LBJ’s campaign against Obama.

    With these reckless statements, Obama can use something like that against Romney.

    Is he fookin’ crazy??? Or does he just say anything that he thinks will appeal to fundie-rightwing wackjobs in order to win the nomination? Scary guy.

  2. Thrashing about rather spectacularly, Mittens is.
    Or should I say that he’s getting his magic underwear in a twist?
