Quote of the Day

"The president's naïveté with regards to Russia, and his faulty judgement about Russia's intentions and objectives has led to a number of foreign policy challenges that we face. ...I think effective leaders typically are able to see the future to a certain degree, and are able to take actions to shape it in some way. And that's, of course, what this president has failed to do. And as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton as well."Mitt Romney, on Face the Nation over the weekend.

Romney asserts that he's the kind of effective leader who can "see the future," which I have to say is not evidenced by the fact that he ran for and lost the presidency. Twice.

Frankly, given that John Kerry, not Hillary Clinton, is the current Secretary of State, I'm not convinced that Mitt Romney can see the present, either.
