Who needs Donald Trump when the Republican nominee himself is willing to say that the president is governing like a foreigner?

KUDLOW: What do you think it means? Do you think this is Obama anti-business, anti-entrepeneur, or do you think maybe he has been treated unfairly?

ROMNEY: Well, just read the whole speech. I found the speech even more disconcerting than just that particular line. The context is worse than the quote. [...] It's a very strange and in some respects foreign to the American experience type of philosophy. [...] His whole philosophy is an upside-down philosophy that does not comport with the American experience.

Romney's 'foreign' attack was part of a larger rant being pushed by his campaign in which he basically accuses the president of being a Communist ideologue. It's really quite crazy stuff—he sounds like Michele Bachmann with a Harvard education—but if neither the media nor the Obama campaign call him out for what he's doing, it's just going to keep on getting worse.

(By the way, on a side note related to the substance of the manufactured "build that" attack that Romney was trying to advance, President Obama turned the tables last night in Oakland.)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
