Press Release

The Romney Vision: Gov. Romney Calls on Dems to Repudiate MoveOn Attack on Gen. Petraeus

"And I frankly don't understand why Hillary Clinton hasn't repudiated MoveOn.org at this point. And I'm afraid the truth is that MoveOn.org has purchased the Democratic Party, if you will. That it's funding, and the status of this 527, and the voice it has in the Democratic Party is so powerful that it's now calling the shots. And that Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama and John Edwards are afraid to repudiate an ad and an organization which has taken a disgusting course against a great American." - Gov. Mitt Romney (MSNBC's "Morning Joe," 9/14/07)


THE ROMNEY VISION: SUPPORT OUR MILITARY LEADERS

Gov. Romney Condemns The Vicious Attack On General Petraeus And Calls On All Democrats To Do The Same:

Gov. Romney Called MoveOn's Attack On General Petraeus "Unacceptable."

GOV. MITT ROMNEY: "The MoveOn.org attack on General Petraeus is, frankly, entirely unacceptable. This is a man who is risking his life by being in Iraq, and being in Camp Liberty, and this is a person who realizes that the lives of many other people are under his care. He's under extraordinary stress. He comes here and reports exactly what he believes is going on - what he thinks ought to be done - and for MoveOn.org to attack him as they did is simply unacceptable and reprehensible." (MSNBC's "Morning Joe," 9/14/07)

GOV. MITT ROMNEY: "And I frankly don't understand why Hillary Clinton hasn't repudiated MoveOn.org at this point. And I'm afraid the truth is that MoveOn.org has purchased the Democratic Party, if you will. That it's funding, and the status of this 527, and the voice it has in the Democratic Party is so powerful that it's now calling the shots. And that Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama and John Edwards are afraid to repudiate an ad and an organization which has taken a disgusting course against a great American." (MSNBC's "Morning Joe," 9/14/07)

- Gov. Mitt Romney: "MoveOn.org's latest outrageous act is an attempt to call into question the reputation and character of General Petraeus even before he testifies in front of Congress. ... Democrats must make a choice. Will they embrace these deplorable tactics or give General Petraeus a fair hearing?" (Gov. Mitt Romney, "A Fair Hearing for General Petraeus," National Review Online, http://corner.nationalreview.com/, Posted 9/10/07)

Gov. Romney Welcomed The Petraeus Report And News That U.S. Forces Are Making Progress In Iraq:

Gov. Romney Called The Petraeus Report "Good News For Americans And Iraqis."

ROMNEY: "Today's testimony from General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker confirms the progress being made by our troops in Iraq. This is good news for Americans and Iraqis. The importance of a successful conclusion to Iraq must be weighed in light of the global threat of violent Jihad and terror. America must continue its commitment to the strategy General Petraeus is executing." (Romney For President, Press Release, 9/11/07)

Gov. Mitt Romney Believes That General Petraeus Is An American Hero And Is Serving His Country Nobly.

"I think the American people listened with interest to General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker and recognized that we have true American patriots and heroes here. And they expressed their views openly. ... [T]hey pointed out the good and the bad. The net in both of their testimony was that we are making progress..." (WLS 890 AM's "Don Wade & Roma," 9/12/07)
