    Why yes, yes he is. This is Carter all over again.
    ****************************************************
    Yesterday, Barack Obama responded somewhat obliquely to Mitt Romney’s criticism over the statement issued by the Cairo embassy by painting him as a loose cannon. He told CBS reporter Steve Kroft that “Governor Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later.” Charlie Spiering noticed that Obama seemed to be channeling another American President with those words — and perhaps the worst one Obama could choose, under the circumstances, emphasis mine:

    Obama’s remarks, however, echo frequent criticisms made by President Jimmy Carter of Ronald Reagan, then his opponent for the presidency.

    Carter criticized Reagan’s views on foreign policy during his speech at the Democratic National Convention in 1980, slamming Reagan for living in a “fantasy world” and noting his inability to understand the “complex global changes” in foreign policy.

    “It’s a make believe world. A world of good guys and bad guys, where some politicians shoot first and ask questions later,” Carter said, “No hard choices. No sacrifice. No tough decisions. It sounds too good to be true – and it is. The path of fantasy leads to irresponsibility. The path of reality leads to hope and peace.”
