Romney should have replied, “1917 is calling and wants it’s economic policy back.”

Romney should have said directly to him that cliche's is an expensive excuse for a foreign policy and Americans will pay for that naivite' with the blood of our sons and daughters.

Romney should have responded:

“It is precisely that adolescent attitude toward foreign policy that defines you as singularly unqualified for the office of President!”

People who say “____ is calling, he/she/it wants his/her/its ____ back” are using a worn out cliche that needs to be retired.

Romney should have replied that he rejected the Reagan foreign policy of the 1980s and left the republican party because of Reagan, becoming a supporter, fund raiser and voter for democrats, and not reregistering republican until October of 1993, after the Reagan/Bush era was ended.

Yeah, that was the first words out of my mouth after the 2008 election, "can we have a Mulligan?"

Here's the passage at issue:
In the 1980s, the war caucus in Congress armed bin Laden and the mujaheddin in their fight with the Soviet Union. In fact, it was the official position of the State Department to support radical jihad against the Soviets. We all know how well that worked out.
Let's leave aside for now the insulting, utterly asinine, sickening, inexcusable use of the phrase "war caucus" to describe those (including Reagan!) who supported the mujaheddin against the Soviets. That word choice alone is almost entirely disqualifying for its purveyor to ever be president.

Instead, let's just look at a little history here -- because the ignorance evident in this paragraph is truly astonishing. One would be hard pressed to find even a single historian, whether right, left, or center, who would argue anything other than that the Soviet failure in Afghanistan was not just a huge factor, but probably an essential one, in the Soviets' ultimate loss of the Cold War.

Or it’s 1968 and Chicago wants its radicals back...
