Romney will "train Afghans and share with local leaders his views on issues
of leadership, public service, economic opportunity and democratic
participation," Train them how... to do what?Guess he was
there visiting one of his son serving...oh yeah, that's not for
politicians kids.Can Mitt See Canada from his house?
Going so he can say he has foreign policy experience in preparation for a run
for President. He lost me back in early 2008 when he dissed the people of
France where he served his mission. It wasn't the government of France, with
which expressing differences would be OK, but he dissed the people. It told me
that he did not connect with the people he served. And I believe he does not
connect with the middle class or the poor of America. He has lived a privileged
life from the moment he was born. He is aristocracy, and has no clue about
those of us who aren't very rich. I'll go with our current President in 2012.
He is a much better leader that Mr Obama who did not have a foreign experience
either, eh I AM LDS 2?
If Mitt intends to run, then this is a smart move to reassess for himself the
current environment and reestablish his relationships. Wouldn't anyone prefer a
[potential] leader who is personally familiar with the current tone and views of
key allies and their leaders? His trip speaks to his leadership savvy.
I wish Romney, or any Mormon could serve as POTUS one day. But, I don't think
anti-Mormon southern Christians would ever allow that. Even though we always
support their candidates. Oh well.
He's probably there to make a deal on behalf of his rich pals to steal all of
Afghanistan's natural resources; the MO of American imperialism.
Trying to look presidential I guess. Why the commander is meeting with him is
anyones guess. I just hope that this time he runs as "Mitt
Romney", not some charectorization of the republican parties wish list for
a candidate. He just needs to be himself, then we can judge him for what he
really is. All this political theatre does him no service what so ever.
Who is Mitt Romney? I mean, isn't he just a common citizen. He is nobody
special. He has no official position representing our country, our military,
our government, or anything else. He is just a rich guy.So why does
he get special treatment? Why does he get to go visit our military in
Afghanistan? If I declare that I might run for president in 2012, will they let
me go visit the troops?As far as I know, Mitt is just a Venture
Capitalist - meaning he is a rich guy with lots of money. That should never
qualify a person for special political or military treatment.
Greaaaaaaaaat. Mit is going to run in 2012 obviously.
Is this Romney supporting his stellar record of military service... oh yes...
there isn't one. Perhaps he is just showing us he knows where the country is...
after all everyone else has gone there for the photo opps.
