But Do You Really Love Me?

Mitt Romney is in Jerusalem. Iran needs to know, he says, that if sanctions do not work, a credible military option is not off the table, which differs from Barack Obama's position, founded on the preparation of a military option, which is not off the table, if sanctions do not work. The key difference is, of course, the word "credible." Romney is the guy who means what he says, not somebody who just says what he hopes will play well with key audiences. We know this because such toughness plays well with his base. Anyway, Romney never objected to settlements, and is unashamed to raise money from Sheldon et al at the King David Hotel, which means he must be tough, or just loves us more than Obama, so the word "credible" must be credible. Heck, Romney just loves us to death.

What I heard on NPR this morning is that Romney would respect Israel's unilateral action against Iran. This shaves it very close to supporting such a move and it's also close to criticizing our foreign policy. Would a President Romney involve us in another war as he encourages Israel to show how tough he is?

More annoying was his pandering to the Jerusalem-is-Israel's capital issue. Jerusalem may very well end up as Israel's internationally recognized capital in some deal, a compromise where it is shared. NO way Jose otherwise. And giving such an opinion gives energy to those who don't feel a deal is needed anytime soon. Romney shows too how well he can undermine that end at the same time as undermining our present foreign policy as he panders to the extreme right and the evangelicals here.

I think at the wall he was probably wishing for what heis trying to purchase-- the American presidency.
