But the thing is...he didn't just shape-shift once again. He made no sense.
Overall, his argument was that President Obama has done an awful terrible job in handling foreign policy.
Yes, but let me — let me — let me come back — let’s come back — let’s come back and go back to what the president was speaking about, which is what’s happening in the world and — and — and the president’s statement that things are going so well.He said this kind of thing over and over again.
Look, I — I look at what’s happening around the world and I see Iran four years closer to a bomb. I see the Middle East with a rising tide of violence, chaos, tumult. I see jihadists continuing to spread. Whether they’re rising or just about the same level hard to — hard to precisely measure, but it’s clear they’re there. They’re very, very strong.
I see Syria with 30,000 civilians dead, Assad still in power.
And yet - when it came time to discuss these issues specifically, he basically said he agreed with everything President Obama has done. Other than wanting to take our military back to 1917, his one big idea that distinguishes him from what the President is already doing would be to indict Ahmadinejad for "genocide incitation." What?????
Otherwise, when it comes to Afghanistan, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Al Qaeda and everything else, he agrees with what the President is doing.
How do you reconcile those two arguments...things are going so badly and I'd do more of the same?
I know that sometimes Bill Maher says stupid stuff. But last night he nailed it.
Mitt's entire debate strategy: What he just said, but from a white guyUPDATE: And of course, the Truth Team is ON IT!
