Our Chief In Command
Mr. Romney, the Cold War wants its foreign policy back and the Bush years want their blunders back.
Connect: Americans want a Commander-In-Chief who is strong, steady, and decisive -- a leader who makes the right calls at home and abroad.
Warn: Whether it's Iran, Afghanistan, Libya, or Syria, Mitt Romney keeps hiding his real positions -- sending the wrong message to our troops and our allies and enemies around the world.
State of play: Last night, the President was in command and held Romney accountable -- whether for calling Russia our #1 geopolitical foe, saber-rattling on Iran, or complaining that our Navy isn't more like it was in the days of horses and bayonets.
Call out: Mr. Romney, the Cold War wants its foreign policy back, the Bush years want their blunders back, and the 1920s would like their economic policies back, too.
Contrast: President Obama says what he means and gets results. Our allies and our troops know where he stands. Strong, steady, and clear leadership: that's what a Commander-in-Chief looks like.
