Romney Campaign Stickers jab Obama: Hope is not a Strategy

No one can accuse the Mitt Romney reelection campaign of being asleep at the switch. In reaction to a well-received line at Romney’s foreign policy speech yesterday, the Romney campaign almost immediately turned around a product based on the candidate’s line “Hope is not a strategy.”

In a much-anticipated foreign policy speech given at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, VA on Monday, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney slammed president Obama, taking a swipe at his 2008 campaign slogan and his “leading from behind” foreign policy failures. “I know the President hopes for a safer, freer, and a more prosperous Middle East allied with the United States,” Romney told the audience. “I share this hope.  But hope is not a strategy.”

The reaction was enough to prompt the Romney campaign to offer “Hope is Not a Strategy” bumper stickers on their website not even 24 hours after the memorable line was uttered.

Below a photo of their new product on the campaign site, the staff included a paraphrased version of Romney’s speech that reads “President Obama hopes for a safer, freer, and more prosperous Middle East allied with us — but hope is not a strategy. America cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies when our words are not backed up by deeds, when our defense spending is arbitrarily and deeply cut, and when we have no trade agenda to speak of. And we are not strong if the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but passivity.”

Time will only tell if Romney’s hard-hitting one-liner is more than just well-placed rhetoric and translates into a lucrative slogan for his reelection bid.
