Losers Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan Mock Hillary Clinton and Declare She’s ‘Beatable’

Hillary Clinton not impressed

Robert Costa has another gem for the political world. Writing at the Washington Post, the Republican whisperer reported on the first interview Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have given since their humiliating loss to Barack Obama in 2012.

And guess what? ROMENTUM is back, babies. Paul Ryan announced with all of the confidence of someone who may have helped the top of the ticket lose that Hillary Clinton is “beatable”. This was after they “mocked” Clinton for her foreign policy efforts, because nothing says winning like pre-emptive strikes coming from someone who was almost laughed out of Britain during his faux “foreign policy” tour after messing up the most basic diplomacy required of a politician at the Olympics. In fact, the British press said Romney was a total car crash, “worse than Sarah Palin.”

On the heels of the Ice Bucket Challenge, per Costa at the Post:

Relaxing with Ryan before they both headed off to different cities, the second-place finisher in the last presidential race railed against the

“Looking at her record, seeing how ineffective she was in securing more security, is going to be a great handicap for her in the general election,” said Romney. “I don’t think it’ll hurt her in the primary, but it will in the general.

“That picture of her with the foreign minister of Russia, smiling ear to ear with that red reset button, I presume that’s going to be an ad. Of all the miscalculations in foreign-policy history, that stands out as an unfortunate one.”

His former running mate also downplayed Clinton’s fall odds. “She’s beatable,” said Ryan. “Her assets are her name identification, her ability to fundraise, and her campaign experience. Her liabilities are policies and track record. She was one of the architects of the Obama foreign policy.
“I also think there may be a little fatigue,” he added. “People will be looking for someone new. She may be riding high now, but people may decide against having another four years of this kind of governing.”

Yes. Mitt might have zero foreign policy experience. He might have ticked off leaders in countries that were our allies on his little foreign policy tour. He might have been known as the “foreign policy bumbler.” But at least he wasn’t “ineffective in securing more security”.

Naturally you have to have done something in order to be criticized for the outcome, and neither Mitt Romney nor Paul Ryan have any actual foreign policy experience, save for Mitt’s mistakes. Romney’s quickie foreign policy tour revealed the Romney Doctrine to be:

Step 1: Get the facts wrong;
Step 2: Undermine long-lasting relationships with your allies;
Step 3: Frequently highlight your lack of experience;
Step 4: Assemble a team of ideologues committed to endless war;
Step 5: Mistake your enemies (“C’mon, Mitt…think!”)

So it makes total sense that this is going to be their attack on the person who consistently polls way ahead of any Republican for 2016.

The comment about Russia reveals that Mr. Romney seems to have been asleep during the long, dark years of the Bush administration’s many miscalculations, “Of all the miscalculations in foreign-policy history, that stands out as an unfortunate one.”

Seventeen of Romney’s 24 special advisers on foreign policy during his 2012 campaign served under Bush. Romney has been obsessed with war in the Middle East. They called it the Romney Cheney Doctrine for a reason.

Mission Accomplished.

But the Russia comment also lives in a bubble wherein Mitt Romney did not claim that Russia was our number one geopolitical foe, totally forgetting about al Qaeda. Pretending things like this never happened is a specialty of Team Mitt’s, and he sadly surrounds himself with people who foster these delusions (see unskewed polls).

Maybe Romney forgot the uncontainable smirk he wore as he waited eagerly to rush to the podium to condemn Obama just minutes after the Benghazi attack. Or his “kick the can down the road” oopsie.

Heads up, America. The dynamic duo is at it again and they are smoking hot with effective zingers in which they criticize their opponent for the very thing they are the weakest on. Yes, surely the country is tired of the very thing that got Obama elected- his foreign policy. His promise to end the war in Iraq. His careful attempts to find other ways of dealing with international conflict and terrorism than combat troops installed everywhere without a plan.

Romney tried this very plan of attacking Obama on foreign policy before and was told, “Please Proceed, Governor.” I’m sure Hillary Clinton is terrified, because it’s not like she can’t simply run a 2 second ad asking Americans if they want to return to the Cheney Doctrine.

So clever. Republicans always have their fingers on the pulse of America.

  1. Mitt’s foreign policy experience consists of dodging the draft in France and hiding his assets offshore.

  2. Great laugh… Those two clowns couldn’t win in any contest against Clinton. Not now, not ever. Not a chance in hell.

  3. Golly. If they said she wasn’t beatable, their money would dry up and the party would turn to Canada Ted.
    They HAVE to lie and be nasty and act all concerned about the state of affairs around the world. Truly, they care about nothing but living off the government (esp. Ryan) and hiding their wealth so they can pretend to understand the little people. You know what America got sick of, Mitt? Your wife and her demeaning attitude toward working people. So, please proceed, you two. Dems will beat you twice, and that’s just fine.

  4. The year 2016 belongs to Democrats. The fact that Romney and Ryan are thinking about losing again in 2016 shows that the GOP do not have qualified people who can run and perhaps win in 2016.

    Huntsman is the only one qualified, but since the crazies are now in charge, well, they want a crazy person, not a sane person, to r

  5. These 2 losers have the mentality of 8th graders. This kind of BS is not adult like, let alone Presidential.

    Romney and Ryan never grew up. I am sick of the petty shit. Be a man and work out and present ideas for our country. Quite acting like adolescents on the playground.

  6. With the inevitable misogynistic fallderall that the Reich wing will fling at Hillary they still foolishly think that a Repub. will win the Presidency. Only the dis-enfranchisement of millions of Female, Black, and Latino voters could possibly eek out a win. And the SCOTUS will hand the office to the lying filthy Republican if we let it happen. It’s time we get rid of the Reich Wing in it’s entirety by vote and voice.

  7. “misogynistic fallderall”. Thank you for that prophetic comment.

    Wasn’t it that beauty queen Limbaugh who shuddered at the thought of watching Hillary grow old if she became president?

    I wouldn’t pay to go to a circus to see those two stumbling clowns.

  8. Remember when Romney touted his takeover of Staples as proof he knew how to provide jobs, he must have finished stripping the assets because Staples stores have announced closures all over the country.

  9. Our Staples is on its way out in this area. Vulture Romney probably got every last dollar out of the place, and then sent his loot overseas to be sheltered. Buy them up, chew them up, and spit them out.

  10. We lost our Staples last year. I wonder how many people lost their jobs because of Bain Capital and Rmoney?

  11. Well, well, Frick and Frack is back with the same old BS they tried before. Romney is an asshole and Ryan is just plain stupid and the only way they will ever get into the White House, will be as a visitor.

  12. Real Americans rejected the hateful, hate filled, hate mongering, lying republican liar twins before and will again. Paul Ryan almost lost his seat in Congress during his fiasco run at a National election. And Romney seems to never dislike being rejected again and again by real Americans. The hate and lie republican twins can hate and lie all they want, but patriotic Americans will reject them again and again.

  13. …Malicious Mitt and Lyin’ Ryan??? Romney killing American jobs for his and a few others profits??? Ryan for his continued insistence on giving the rich ever increasing tax breaks, AND his continued attempts to cut the social safety net???
    His continued attempts to kill off the poor for the sake of his austerity programs, which even the WSJ says will kill jobs and increase deficit???
    They forget…they ALWAYS forget…more and more people are bein’ unemployed by Vulture Capitalists like Romney…and find the already insufficient public aid being reduced more and more by Teahadists in ‘public’ office like Ryan…
    …and they will not forget…

  14. The GOP has gotten so bad that they helped elect the first Black President and in 2016 they will help elect the first Woman President.

  15. Mitt Romney has LOTS of foreign policy experience.

    You think Hiding MILLIONS from the IRS in Foreign banks is Easy?

    Damn. That’s almost as hard as being s Draft Dodger in the south of France during
    the Vietnam war.

  16. The whole Obama presidency has been an embarrassment, and unfortunately, Hillary was one of his biggest embarrassments! I see all of you referring to Romney’s draft dodging…where is Obama’s military experience? Hell he wasn’t even a boy scout!

  17. You know there’s dumb and then you are in a category all by yourself. The reason dummy that people bring up the draft dodging is that fool that you worship was handing out leaflets in support of the Vietnam war and when it was his time to serve he ran a away like the coward he is to a chateau in France. There was no war for Obama to try to get out of and BTW it is a volunteer Army. I served. Did you?

    This country is getting stupider by the second
