This guy wants to be POTUS???

From CNNs Political Ticker:

Count Republican Mitt Romney among those who aren’t happy with Time Magazine’s choice of Russian President Vladimir Putin for Person of the Year.

In an interview with CNN’s Glen Beck, the presidential candidate called the choice “disgusting.”

Someone please explain to me how this is diplomacy? If Romney (heaven help us) becomes president how will he begin normal talks with someone he’s “disgusted” with? He said it on the continually low rated Klansman Show, so maybe he thought it was “safe”.

Thank you Romney for adding reason 893 to the list of Why Romney Should Never be President.

    It’s not diplomacy, but there are some people with whom it’s unwise to be diplomatic. Treating all world leaders equally when they’re clearly not equal leads to a policy called appeasement (where you act like everyone’s a nice guy, even though many are clearly dangerous). And the results of appeasement are pretty obvious: WWII for starters.

    Now, I’m not necessarily saying Putin’s a good candidate for cold-shoulder diplomacy. But, given the way Russia’s going, I think you can make a fair case for it.

    Yes, I have. To the best of my knowledge, corporations aren’t being forcibly nationalized by the day, political opponents aren’t routinely disappearing, our president doesn’t have water-tight plan for hanging onto power even after his term expires, investigative journalists can still walk the streets reasonably secure in the knowledge that Internal Security hasn’t placed a contract on their heads, and ex-CIA agents don’t need to worry about being poisoned when they speak out against the government. Sorry for the run-on sentence.
