What a dangerous lunatic. Fortunately he will never be elected president.
There were troubling suggestions of war coming out of Republicans at the RNC in Tampa. Mitt Romney reiterated this on Thursday, when he accepted his party's 2012 nomination for president of the United States.
Romney criticized President Obama for not using force against Iran to stop their nuclear program, saying that he "has failed to slow Iran's nuclear threat." But he also made comments about the relationship between the United States and Russia that implied a willingness to ignite another Cold War. Romney said that President Obama was "eager to give Russia's president Putin the flexibility he desires after the election."
Add those comments to Romney's economic plan, which adds another $1 trillion to the defense budget, and Americans have serious cause for concern.
Talk of war at a political convention by a candidate with absolutely no foreign policy experience should send up a warning flag to a war-weary nation. And while trying to garner support for new wars, Romney conspicuously failed to mention the decade of fighting in Afghanistan that has not only cost America trillions of dollars, it has also taken more than 2,000 American lives.
