Obama campaign says that despite his foreign policy speech today, Mitt Romney is still not ready to serve:
"This is Mitt Romney's seventh attempt, by our count, to reboot his foreign policy," campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One. "When you're commander in chief, you don’t get to bring an Etch a Sketch into the Oval Office. You don’t get second chances, never mind seven chances.

"And as the American people are looking at what he had to say today, but also his record from the last few months, the areas that should be of concern are: This is somebody who leads with chest-pounding rhetoric, he's inexperienced, he’s been clumsy in his handling of foreign policy, and most of all, all of these factors lead to a risk that we're going to go back to the same policies that lead us to some of the challenges we faced in the last few years."

But hey, at least this time he didn't forget to thank the troops. So he's learning. And Donald Rumsfeld seemed pleased with Mitt, so at least he's got the Bushies on his side.

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.
