Showing the kinds of true leadership qualities that you just cannot learn in business school — no, these are the kinds of valuable skills that you can only learn in the school of hard knocks — Mitt Romney stepped up to the plate and took a hard look at the myriad of missteps and mistakes he made during his trip through GOP-approved foreign countries. And he valiantly took full responsibility.
And then threw it onto the lamestream media…
Asked about his missteps in an interview with Fox News’ Carl Cameron before he left Poland on Tuesday, Romney accused reporters of trivializing the substance of his trip and trying to divert attention from President Obama’s stewardship of the economy.
"And I realize that there will be some in the Fourth Estate, or whichever estate, who are far more interested in finding something to write about that is unrelated to the economy, to geopolitics, to the threat of war, to the reality of conflict in Afghanistan today, to a nuclearization of Iran," Romney said, according to a transcript of the interview that aired on Tuesday morning. "They’ll instead try and find anything else to divert from the fact that these last four years have been tough years for our country."
And also, if those other countries weren't there in those other places in the world there wouldn't have been any places in which to make a bunch of mistakes. So, don't think we're not looking at you, too. You're partially to blame, rest of world.
