No I am not making this up. In an op-ed today Mitt Romney actually said this:
Barack Obama is facing a financial emergency on a grander scale. Yet his approach has been to engage in one of the biggest peacetime spending binges in American history.
I realize Mitt isn’t the smartest guy around and will say and do just about anything to curry GOP votes. But peacetime? What the hell? At my last count we’re engaged in a War on Terror™, with conflicts in at least 3 countries that we know about. Look, how can I (or anybody) take anything this man says seriously. I mean this wasn’t an off-the-cuff remark. It was an op-ed.
