Governor Romney remains mired in a Cold War mindset.
~ Vice President Joe Biden
(Syria is) strategically important to the Soviet Union.
~ Rich Williamson, Romney Foreign Advisor, July 25, 2012
From Talking Points Memo
• In April, Romney adviser and former Navy secretary John Lehman accused Obama of not doing enough to protect America from the Soviets in the Arctic.
“We’re seeing the Soviets pushing into the Arctic with no response from us,” he said on a Romney campaign conference call. “In fact, the only response is to announce the early retirement of the last remaining icebreaker.”
• That same month, Romney caught himself just after he fired off a warning about the Soviet threat.
“Obama ‘entered into an agreement with the Soviets, excuse me, with Russia’ in the nuclear arms START treaty that effectively required the United States to reduce its weapons stockpile while allowing Russia to increase its stockpile,” Romney said on April 20.
So, not only did a Romney adviser call Russia the Soviet Union, but also called the candidate "Governor Reagan" on a couple occurrences?— Matt Vasilogambros (@MattVas) July 26, 2012

Team Romney, including Mitt, has called Russia "Soviet Union" 3 times, making it the only union they acknowledge.— Bearded Stoner (@beardedstoner) July 25, 2012

It's only Thursday and Mitt Romney has already embarrassed himself to Australia, the entire United Kingdom, the "Soviet Union", and the USA.— Path2Enlightenment (@Path2Enlighten) July 26, 2012
America, we simply can't afford to elect a moron president bent on bringing back the good old days of the Cold War. 2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/07/romney…— Gary Schor (@garyschor) July 26, 2012
