The mistake here is in assuming Obama ever had a strategy.

The message is derived from a statement made in Mitt Romney’s powerful foreign policy address today.

From the Romney campaign website:

President Obama hopes for a safer, freer, and more prosperous Middle East allied with us — but hope is not a strategy. America cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies when our words are not backed up by deeds, when our defense spending is arbitrarily and deeply cut, and when we have no trade agenda to speak of. And we are not strong if the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but passivity.

Wonder how many of these will be slapped directly over the Obama ’08 bumper stickers that everyone is desperately trying to cover up.  Prius owners don’t count.
