Think about that. But after Mitt Romney's stupendously stupid, not to mention patently false attacks on President Obama and the U.S. response to the violence in Egypt and Libya, I don't see how we can say different.

Even a Romney campaign adviser who had served in the White House under George W. Bush said:

“[Romney] had forgotten the first rule in a crisis: don’t start talking before you understand what’s happening.”  
That's from a Romney adviser!

Mitt Romney -- the Republican nominee for President -- now has less foreign policy credibility than Sarah Palin. And that's saying something.

Remember what she said?:

Compared to the cringe-inducing remarks from Gov. Palin, what Romney said was far worse because it revealed him not just as someone ill-prepared for the presidency, but someone willing to score political points during a foreign policy crisis, no matter the effect on our country's material interests.

Sarah Palin aside, that's no joke.

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.
