FYI Romney was talking straight out of his ass with his criticisms of the President’s handling of Libya:
Mitt Romney does not currently receive national security briefings, his campaign confirmed to CBS News today.
[...] “The Intelligence Community is working closely with the Romney campaign to finalize the logistics for the candidate briefings,” he told CBS News. “The process is moving forward on schedule and we are not aware of any concerns.”
So, great. He was watching Fox “News” and thought he’d jump right into the matter with all that background info. You might argue that he’s probably getting some impressive advice from such experienced foreign policy experts as Dick Cheney or Sheldon Adelson. Maybe… but that’s not for us, The Help, to know. Who’s whispering in Mitt’s ear is just another closely guarded secret of Team Romney:
Asked who Romney is currently leaning on most for foreign policy advice right now, spokeswoman Andrea Saul responded, “Governor Romney is pleased to draw on a deep bench of foreign policy and national security experts who advise him and his campaign.”
What a coy, self-satisfied answer. Governor Romney seems pleased with a lot of things lately, like using a tragedy to advance his campaign.
