Mitt Romney Wants To Carry A Big Stick

Mitt Romney was in Iowa today and he told the crowd he “wants to carry the big stick.” He said he wants to boost the size of the military by 100,000 more troops, and increase the military budget. I guess he doesn’t think the stick is big enough now. He gets the whole stick idea from President Theodore Roosevelt who said the United States should “Speak softly and carry a big stick,” when dealing with other nations. “I hope I don’t have to use it, but I want to make sure we have it so that people understand we are a nation of strength,” Romney said. We are already the worlds largest manufacturer of military weapons, and have the worlds strongest military. I think the rest of the world already understands who is number one. President Bush has been swinging that stick around for the last 6 years, and all it has done is made us less safe. “If you look across the world you can recognize that there is terror going on,” Romney said. “There is a worldwide effort of different people all intent on bringing down modernity and, replacing it, in some respects, with barbarism.” He believes that all these barbarians understand is the end of the stick. So all we need to do is act like Buford Pusser in ‘Walking Tall,’ and everything will be O.K. again. Romney added some praise for President Bush, saying, “Everything he does, he does from the standpoint of what is best for the American people.” He said Bush has improved the economy, helped develop renewable resources for energy, and picked some good Supreme Court judges. What planet has Romney been on?
