Pandering to moderate independent voters, Mr. Romney not only agreed with President Obama's foreign policy decisions (from the ouster of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt to the killing of Osama bin Laden, from the the President's sanctions on Iran to his decision to liberate Libya, from the Presidents withdrawal timetable in Afghanistan to his reluctance to put boots on the ground in Syria, from drone strikes to the use of military force, even the President's bail out of Detroit), he did so, with the same intensity with which he had previously and passionately derided the President's policies.
Hell, at one point in the debate I thought Romney was actually going to endorse the President.
What a flip-flop! Romney proved once again that he could lie with a straight face, that he has no integrity and that he is willing to say or do anything to get elected, even to impersonate his opponent.
Apparently, his handlers thought that their strategy to assume the identity of the President in order to commit fraud was successful. But, why would anyone vote for an impostor when they already have the real thing?
In the end, the Republican spin-machine was only left with – the Governor passed the "commander-in-chief test," he looked "presidential."
If the "far right" continues to back Romney after last night's impersonation of the President, then they have no integrity as well.
