Massachusetts Senator John Kerry has been playing Mitt Romney in the President's debate prep, but when asked about the real Romney's performance in last night's debate, he tore into the candidate as "weak, wrong" and dishonest. Before the debate, the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee insisted Romney had to show specificity in regard to his foreign policy plans - a test, he says, Romney failed. It was "like listening to a candidate who was running on Cliff Notes or who had Rosetta Stone foreign policy," said Senator Kerry on "The Daily Rundown". A Romney vision the Wall Street Journal opinion page described as "so wholly unobjectionable it would have made any Peace Corps volunteer proud" was criticized by Senator Kerry as an attempt to "fool people, hide his real positions" and distract from more hawkish policy positions he's taken over the last seven years. Senator Kerry went so far as to joke that he needs an exorcism now that he's done channeling Romney for debate preparations.
