While Mitt Romney has managed to alienate virtually every important voting block in America: women, Latinos, blacks, gays, unions, students and the poor, he has pretty much locked up the war lover vote.
Speaking in northern Virginia Wednesday, Romney lamented the automatic defense spending cuts that kick in as part of the debt limit deal. He blamed them entirely on President Obama, conveniently omitting that they result from a bi-partisan agreement supported by his hawkish Vice Presidential running mate Rep. Paul Ryan, and are are essentially a small chunk of our gargantuan defense kitty. But in a bizarre, preposterous spin on the deal, Romney claimed it means that for the first time since before FDR, America will lose its capacity "to engage in two conflicts at once".
Gov. Romney should roll out a new campaign theme:
ROMNEY - WHEN ONE CRIMINAL WAR IS NOT ENOUGH"
