The Balls On These Guys: Team Obama Says Romney Must Prove Trip Isn’t ‘Photo Op and Fundraising Tour’

Fresh off a photo op in Colorado before embarking on yet another fundraising tour, the failed president’s flailing minions today have the gall to come up this this howler:

President Obama’s campaign team argued Monday that Mitt Romney will need to prove that his overseas trip isn’t “one long photo op and fundraising tour” by offering a substantive foreign policy platform during his travels to the United Kingdom, Israel, and Poland.

“He’ll need to prove to the American people that he sees foreign policy issues as worthy of substantive discussion rather than just generality and soundbites in this campaign,” said campaign spokesman Robert Gibbs. “It’s widely accepted that President Obama has an exceptionally strong record on national security issues, and I think quite frankly Mitt Romney is having a tough time making an argument against the president of the United States on these issues.”

Widely accepted he’s got an exceptional record on national security? OK, but he didn’t build that, George W. Bush did.

This from the guy who’s yet to visit our staunch ally Israel while president. But he promises to get there eventually.

    I’m sorry – didn’t the annointed one just return from fundraising overseas?

    I appears that Romney’s trip is making them very nervous. Remember, Walsea/Poland snubbed obama last time around.

    Who can forget his campaign speech at the Hitler monument after being denied the BrandenburgerGate in Berlin by Angela Merkel.
