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.
