Mitt Romney op-ed: President Obama Goes from Wrong to Dishonest

Mitt Romney has penned the following op-ed in today's The National Review:
America saw a different President Obama yesterday. Over the last two years, the president’s job was to repair the economy and to make us safer. He has failed at both but at least he appeared to be trying — his failures were arguably attributable to inexperience, misguidance, and incompetence. Yesterday, however, the president went from being wrong to being deceptive and intellectually dishonest.

The peril of our nation’s present fiscal course has been amply documented. The facts are settled. The president’s own bipartisan deficit commission proposed entitlement and spending reforms to restore fiscal responsibility. The Republicans in the House of Representatives and Chairman Paul Ryan have offered alternative reforms of their own. With the resulting national recognition of financial peril, the country was presented with a once-in-a-generation opportunity. As the president summoned the nation, change was hoped for. Demagoguery, divisiveness, and deception is what we got.

Mitt's got class so he usually refrains from attacking the man and zeroes in on the policies. But sometimes you gotta fight fire with fire and call the man out on his dishonesty and belligerence, and I'm glad Romney shows that he's willing to go there.

"Demagoguery, divisiveness, and deception is what we got."

That's some mighty fine alliteration.
