Donald Rumsfeld just injected himself into today's embarrassing and instantly combustible Romney foreign policy blunder by vouching for Romney!  Tweets Rumsfeld:

The attacks on our embassies & diplomats are a result of perceived American weakness. Mitt Romney is right to point that out.— Donald Rumsfeld (@RumsfeldOffice)
This is amazing commentary coming from the former Secretary of Defense whose Republican administration's well-documented intelligence-deaf negligence failed to thwart the worst terrorist attack in the history of the United States.  

Presumably, Donald Rumsfeld can eat his own words, since the logical conclusion of his statement is that terrorist attacks on Americans or on America's interests result from perceived American weakness, in which case we should never again have a Republican in the White House, lest America be perceived again as so weak that terrorists attack the nation once more.

Either that or his tweet was complete and near-sighted political horseshit.

The fact stands that Barack Obama has been the single most effective counter-terrorism president in the nation's history, not only killing Osama Bin Laden within 36 months but also decimating Al Qaeda's leadership in the process, keeping the homeland safe under his and the Democrats' watch, which is part of why we must re-elect Barack Obama to the nation's highest office.

I think I'm right to point that out.

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.
