As the article states -

... the post-debate gifs mostly centred on Romney, ridiculing his phrases and generally pointing out the problems he has as a candidate.

Mitt Romney: "Hope is Not a Strategy Mr Obama"
Romney calls for arming Syrian opposition, as part of Middle East course change
Published October 08, 2012
Mitt Romney called Monday for a change of course in America's Middle East policy, accusing President Obama of sitting on the sidelines in the face of a "profound upheaval" across the region. The Republican nominee pledged that, if elected, he would prosecute a far more engaged foreign policy, including helping to arm the opposition in Syria's bloody civil war.
"Hope is not a strategy," Romney said.
Romney spoke at the Virginia Military Institute in what was billed as a major foreign policy address. After aggressively challenging the incumbent on economics at last week's debate, Romney is looking to build on that performance with a more robust explanation of how he'd lead in the world, not just America.
The nominee argued Monday that Obama has watched passively as the Middle East has transformed, describing the recent deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya as part of that upheaval.
"The greater tragedy of it all is that we're missing an historic opportunity to win new friends who share our values in the Middle East," Romney said. "Unfortunately, so many of these people who could be our friends feel that our president is indifferent to their quest for freedom and dignity."
Romney focused on the fault lines of Libya, Egypt and especially Syria, where he said Obama has "failed" to lead.

"Hope is not a strategy," Romney said.

Romney was indicating he did not believe in the peace process and, as president, would aim to postpone significant action: "[S]o what you do is, you say, you move things along the best way you can. You HOPE for some degree of stability, but you recognize that this is going to remain an unsolved problem…and we kick the ball down the field and hope that ultimately, somehow, something will happen and resolve it."

Brilliant "statagery".

You loons and Obama are really getting big on putting words in peoples mouths and then go on to try and decern what the made up words mean.......childish and not very effective. Didn't you see Axelrod try that on Meet The Press and fall on his face when ask........WHEN DID ROMNEY SAY THAT.

Romney’s tax cuts would cost $251 billion per year (as of 2015), and all the available loopholes that can be closed for incomes above $200,000 total $165 billion. That leaves $86 billion unaccounted for annually — an estimated $860 billion increase in the debt over 10 years.
