Romney: “The world needs American leadership”

posted at 4:41 pm on September 13, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

While the swirling debate continues about whether or not Mitt Romney is the most shoot-from-the-hip-inclined, gaffe-tastically inappropriate, poorly prepared for the commander-in-chiefdom presidential candidate evah, here’s what he was saying about his plans for America’s future security while on the stump in Virginia today. Click the image to watch, via RCP:

Photobucket

If I’m president of the United States, we will restore our military commitment and keep America the strongest military in the world. The world needs American leadership. The Middle East needs American leadership and I intend to be a president that provides the leadership that America respects and keep us admired throughout the world.

Capitalizing on the momentarily revived foreign-policy focus, Team Romney also released a new ad criticizing President Obama’s handling of China’s ill-begotten and insidious economic rise.

Besides pointing out that President Obama has backtracked on still more of his campaign promises (in this case, to brand China a currency manipulator and stop driving up our deficit and borrowing money from them — major fails on both counts), this ad implicitly makes another excellent point that should have come up more during Team Obama’s “outsourcing” attacks. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with offshoring itself if it’s born of free, cooperative trade and buying goods and services from wherever they’re most cheaply and efficiently produced, because that’s what drives economic growth and prosperity; but when we’re incentivizing businesses to relocate facilities and jobs overseas because of our uncompetitive tax codes and by allowing other countries to avoid playing by the rules of free trade, then it’s a problem. President Obama and company have quite the penchant for blaming the symptoms instead of the disease, a.k.a. blaming the wealthy and businesses for moving away from America’s shores, but they consistently fail to change the tax code that drives them to do so — they only continue to drive up taxes and regulation and make it even worse.

Does anyone really believe that’s why companies offshore to China? Tax code? If only the world were such a simple place the armchair capitalists would be unstoppable titans of industry.

Charlie Munger has written some great articles on the second level effects of outsourcing that most economists who proclaim the virtues of ‘free trade’ with China have consistently overlooked. It’s worth reading, as are most of Munger’s commentary

Make him squirm and watch the facade begin to fall away.

Or, we charge exorbitant amounts for our grain. Like, two barrels of oil for one bushel of wheat.

Liberals are always whining we’re oppressors, but we never have been. We have given away more food than the world has been able to consume. I say to screw ‘em all–especially American liberals.

This whole brouhaha is starting to up my estimate of Romney’s fighting skills- not only isn’t he backing down, he’s putting out a framework of foreign policy thinking that I love. He’s sharpening the differences between the idiot King Barack and himself. He’s reassuring our allies, most of whom have been ignored, beaten down, abandoned or put directly in harms way during the Obama learn-on-the-job debacle.

While the Lightbringer is in Vegas rolling dice with Beyonce, and heading over to Denver to refresh the empty coin drawer, Romney is pounding home the “derelict from duty” theme. Great stuff.

bayam on September 13, 2012 at 4:52 PM

So Charlie Munger – Warren Buffet’s long time business partner is your hero.
Maybe you should do a bit more research before you spout garbage.

From:
http://www.gurufocus.com/StockBuy.php?GuruName=Charlie+Munger

Munger admires China’s policies and policy makers that transformed it from a “Communist bureaucracy” nation to the prosperity of today without major wars. With only population control and some intelligent policy making promoting free market, China’s ability to raise its massive population from the brink of starvation to the welfare of the people today is admirable, and he compares this to the transformation of Singapore.

Munger convinced Buffett to invest in Chinese electric car maker BYD. Munger justified it as the exception to the rule that Berkshire avoids technology companies because the CEO is so talented and has right character worth investing in.

So you think Munger has a problem with offshoring – even though he was the major proponent for Berkshire-Hathaway to invest heavily in China.

Munger is a Republican. His problem isn’t with offshoring but with US economic and corporate policies that fail to recognize the second level and third level, long term effects of offshoring.
Investing in China is different than sending US jobs to China.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with offshoring itself if it’s born of free, cooperative trade and buying goods and services from wherever they’re most cheaply and efficiently produced, because that’s what drives economic growth and prosperity; but when we’re incentivizing businesses to relocate facilities and jobs overseas because of our uncompetitive tax codes and by allowing other countries to avoid playing by the rules of free trade, then it’s a problem.

Without seeming to take China’s side on this issue, it would seem that the tax code imbalance is not China’s problem. Perhaps the US should consider slashing the corporate tax rate to be more competitive. As for the “currency manipulator” tag everyone wants to pin on China, excuse me, the Fed just announced QE3. That China refuses to float its currency in the face of the US’s debasing of the USD is a lesson learned from Japan’s experience with the Plaza Accord which was a trigger for its lost decades.

There’s a lot China could do as regards a more open economy but, then, the US is hardly a bastion of free market capitalism itself. One would not find corporate and union welfare in the definition of “free market.”

bayam on September 13, 2012 at 5:23 PM

Actually – no it’s not. If he’s sending American dollars to China for their companies to build and expand, it IS sending American jobs to China.

And I believe American companies know exactly what they’re doing and why they’re doing it when they offshore operations – and they have evaluated all of the relevant consequences to their business. And for the vast majority, they do so for some combination of: US government regulations have become too much of a burden, taxes are too high, and unions and government have made American labor too expensive vs it’s productive value.

Now I really don’t have a problem with investing wherever you can make a profit, or building your business where it is most profitable for you to do so. I do have a problem with hypocrits who spout garbage talking points and libtards who have no clue what they’re talking about. You and your hero Obummer badmouth offshoring while he holds up the head of GE (a HUGE offshorer) as one of his favorite cronies. If you want to stop offshoring – make the US more hospitable to business – i.e. get the government off our backs.

I’m saying that, as of now, 0bama eminently meets the criteria for impeachment, in my opinion.

I believe in the Constitution. I believe in every Constitutional action that can remove this Communist tick from the body politic, at the earliest possible moment.

I an tired of the knee-jerk reaction that impeachment can only help 0bama.

Once the charges are read: “DERELICTION OF DUTY, LEAVING THE OVAL OFFICE EMPTY, SELLING GUNS TO DRUG KINGPINS, DECLARING ILLEGAL WARS, ILLEGALLY VOIDING CONGRESSIONAL LAWS,” the resulting discussion may not be as helpful to 0bama as you seem to think.

It might even make him lose the election.

Impeach the SOB now. The Constitution demands it.

The China attack seems off in a week dominated by the Middle East. Sound like Team, Romney is sticking to their campaign plan no matter what. Not sure that’s a great idea when Obama is ripe for the picking right now on Egypt. Or, maybe they did get rattled by the media attack and wanted to change the subject.

rockmom on September 13, 2012 at 5:16 PM

So, the big news of the week is Egypt and Libya and Mitt is talking about China. Is there any wonder why the guy is tanking in the polls?

gumbyandpokey on September 13, 2012 at 5:23 PM

So, you and rockmom seem to have gotten your DNC talking points memo in the email at about the same time and rushed over breathlessly to start posting them, eh?

STFU, dipsticks.

Dude. Rockmom isn’t a DNC troll.
Aim your cannon back on pokeysmamagetspokedallthetime.

Do any of you HA people notice that, the more liberal our America becomes, the more American liberals hate our country?

Liam on September 13, 2012 at 5:58 PM

A more liberal America has more to hate.

Proof to me that, the more you indulge a petulant child, the more it will demand.

Liam on September 13, 2012 at 6:02 PM

Far as I’m concerned, liberals are like a dog that has been fed too long at the family supper table and has become such a spoiled beggar it needs to finally be put out in the yard.

Probably not the wisest post I’ve ever seen here.

You impeachment kooks have to realize the only way to beat Obama ands his evil twin minions Reid and Pelosi is at the voting booth. Elections solve problems like Obama. Impeachment just creates bitter divisions, and the backfire effect hurts the attacker nearly as much as the target. Win the vote, and forget about all the silly talk.

MTF on September 13, 2012 at 5:44 PM

Well said. Please folks put thoughts of impeachment out of your heads.

You are right. I totally forgot how the Democrat impeachment effort got President Ford elected in 1976.

I need to re-read my history books.

If you want to try to influence earnest fellow posters, calling them “kooks” is one of the best ways I know. You have a bright future in public relations.

Romney: “The world needs American leadership”

Great Mitt! So when will you be switching places with Paul?

newtopia on September 13, 2012 at 6:35 PM

So, when will you stop denigrating Americans because you think yourself somehow ‘superior’ to everyone who doesn’t agree with you?

I don’t know your politics, but you come across as a liberal.

Liam on September 13, 2012 at 6:42 PM

STFU, dipsticks.

Midas on September 13, 2012 at 5:51 PM

Oh, puh-leeze! Lumping rockmom and daveyandgoliath together proves you have no idea what you’re babbling about.

Hint. She’s on our side.

Keep it up, Mitt.
