This is going to be the shortest diary I've ever written.  

I'm sure that somewhere and on many places on this site in the last day, that I have missed, have called out President Obama's brilliant response to Romney's Libya loser comments. "It seems Governor Romney often fires before he aims."  Not the exact words maybe, but close enough.

I haven't seen a diary dedicated to that brilliant response alone, and apologize if I missed it and am being redundant.  But as I see it, this is worthy of a major meme.  This is worthy of a WHOLE SERIES OF ADS.  

Ready, fire, aim! Seems to me that this not only describes Romney's hapless and horrific response to the recent Libya disaster, but in fact, describes his WHOLE APPROACH to this campaign.

Ready, fire, aim! Don't you all know folks like this?  Often wrong but never in doubt?

Ready, fire, aim!  You wonder how he hasn't dislocated his chin by now, courtesy of knee jerks so extreme, that you can picture the knee bone hitting the jaw with force.

Ready, fire, aim!  Really, this says it all for me about Mitt, better than the etche-sketch, or the so common as not to be heard anymore, "flip flop" term.

Ready, fire, aim!  It says absolutely everything that needs to be said about Mitt's competency to assume the highest office of the land.

I really hope that someone out there in OFA, takes the President's brilliant lead and makes hay with this.  Because for me, it says it all, in three words.  And in today's sound bite world, that's what it's all about.

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.
