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'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.
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.
(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.)
