Looks like Mitt Romney isn’t waiting until he’s formally nominated as the Republican presidential candidate to begin his assault on the POS. To which I say “Yay! Hooray!”
Yesterday, July 24th, 2012, in Reno, Nevada, at the 113th National Convention of The Veterans of Foreign Wars, Romney really lit into the POS big time. Here’s Anjeanette Damon’s report for the Las Vegas Sun (Damon is a liberal):

RENO — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney took aim at President Barack Obama’s foreign policy record during a speech before the VFW today, accusing Obama of putting troops at risk with national security leaks, mistreating America’s most important allies and kowtowing to despotic leaders.
In one of his most pointed assaults, Romney questioned whether the White House was complicit in a series of leaks to the New York Times, accusing the administration of leaking sensitive information for political gain.
“This conduct is contemptible,” Romney said. “It betrays our national interest. It compromises our men and women in the field. And it demands full and prompt investigation, with explanation and consequence.”
Romney said the American people deserve an explanation for the leaks.
“If the President believes — as he said last week — that the buck stops with him, then he owes all Americans a full and prompt accounting of the facts,” Romney said.
Romney echoed calls from Sen. John McCain and others in Congress for an investigation following two New York Times stories on the administration’s cyber war against Iran and Obama’s so-called terrorist “kill list.”
