Just when Mitt Romney thought he’d finally laugh last, he goes overboard. Mitt was so excited when President Obama was caught making pre-second term deals with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, that he declared Russia the U.S.’s “No. 1 geopolitical foe.” White House press secretary Jay Carney noted the ridiculousness of this statement “in a world where al Qaeda is so clearly the preeminent threat to the United States,” and Medvedev called it an “ideological cliché,” saying it reminded him of Hollywood and the past. The Russian president suggested Mitt “look at his watch: we are in 2012, not the mid-1970s.”
