Nostalgie de la Bush

Here we have Mitt Romney, the silver-tongued orator of the GOP, offering advice to the rhetorically-challenged Barack Obama:

WASHINGTON – Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Wednesday accused President Barack Obama of failing to sufficiently highlight America’s strengths in his travels and speeches around the world…

Interviewed from Boston on NBC’s “Today” show as Obama set out on a tour that will include a speech in Egypt on U.S. relations with the Islamic world, Romney said that “of course, America makes mistakes.” But he also said considers it inappropriate to “go around the world apologizing.”

Romney, who unsuccessfully sought the Republican presidential nomination last year, said Obama should talk more about the sacrifices the United States has made on other nations’ behalf, such as during World War II, “what we have done in blood and sacrifice.”

If I’m understanding this correctly, and I am, Romney is accusing Obama of failure to be a sufficiently arrogant asshole.

And America's strengths would be what, exactly?

Economic? Nope!

World leader in addressing global climate change? Nope!

Education? Nope!

Health care? Nope!

But we've got a kick-ass military; I wonder how well that plays around the world.
