Quotes of the day

A top Mitt Romney foreign policy aide on Sunday said the GOP presidential candidate would back an Israeli military strike on Iran to prevent Tehran from developing nuclear weapons.

“If Israel has to take action on its own, in order to stop Iran from developing that capability, the governor would respect that decision,” said Romney adviser on Middle East affairs Dan Senor in a briefing with reporters, according to media reports.

***

Mitt Romney on Sunday declared Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel and said he would seek to move the U.S. embassy there from Tel Aviv as president if the Israeli government ascents.

“A nation has the capacity to choose its own capital city, and Jerusalem is Israel’s capital,” the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said in an interview on CNN, conducted in Jerusalem. “I think it’s long been the policy to ultimately have our embassy in the nation’s capital of Jerusalem.”…

“I would follow the same policy we have had in the past, our embassy would be in the capital, and the timing of that is something I would want to work out with the government,” Romney said.

***

While traveling in Israel on a foreign policy “listening tour,” Mitt Romney said he’s not a foreign policy wimp, which is how he’s depicted on the latest cover of Newsweek.

“If I worried about what the media said I wouldn’t get much sleep, and I sleep pretty well,” Romney told CBS News’ Jan Crawford during an interview Sunday in Jerusalem…

Crawford asked Romney about his campaign which has focused on the former Mass. governor and Bain Capital founder’s business experience. “Would you say that foreign policy is the area where you’re weakest?” she asked. Romney invoked another former governor-turned-president, Ronald Reagan, as a model.

“I would say that foreign policy is a place where intelligence, resolve, clarity and confidence in cause is of extraordinary importance,” he said. “Ronald Reagan was one of our great foreign policy presidents. He did not come from the Senate, he did not come from the foreign policy world; he was a governor. But his resolve, his clarity of purpose, his intelligence, his capacity to deal with complex issues and solve tough problems served him extremely well.

***

An Israeli newspaper reported Sunday that the Obama administration’s top security official has briefed Israel on U.S. plans for a possible attack on Iran, seeking to reassure it that Washington is prepared to act militarily should diplomacy and sanctions fail to pressure Tehran to abandon its nuclear enrichment program.

A senior Israeli official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss confidential talks, said the article in the Haaretz daily was incorrect.

Haaretz said National Security Adviser Tom Donilon laid out the plans before Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a dinner at a visit to Israel earlier this month. It cited an unidentified senior American official as the source of its report, which came out as presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was telling Israel he would back an Israeli military strike against Iran.

***

But Romney would face several critical challenges in a conflict with Iran that Obama would not:

– Romney would be a new president in 2013, which could plausibly be the year for a preventive attack. He will be inexperienced, and his national security team will be new and potentially inexperienced as well. The learning curve on Iran is steep, and the Iranian regime knows it. The Obama team is deeply knowledgeable, appropriately cynical about Iranian intentions, and has had the time and confidence to make course corrections.

– Romney, by all accounts, is uninterested in inheriting the mantle of President George W. Bush, who invaded two Muslim countries and lost popularity and credibility as a result. Romney, despite his rhetoric, is more of a pragmatist than Bush, and far more cautious. An attack on Iran is an incautious act, one that even Bush rejected.

– The unilateral use of force in the Middle East for a liberal Democrat like Obama is a credential; for a conservative Republican like Romney, it could be an albatross. I argued in a previous column that Romney is more likely than Obama to oversee a revitalized Middle East peace process. That’s because conservatives are better positioned to make peace; liberals are generally better positioned to launch preventive strikes at the nuclear programs of rogue nations. We know that U.S. voters, and world leaders, allow Obama extraordinary leeway when it comes to deadly drone strikes, precisely because of his politics, character and background. (We are talking about a man, after all, who won the Nobel Peace Prize while ordering the automated killing of suspected Muslim terrorists around the world.) Romney will get no comparative slack.

– Obama has done a superior job of building an international sanctions coalition against Iran. He has even received some cooperation from China and Russia.

***

I believe that the enduring alliance between the State of Israel and the United States of America is more than a strategic alliance: it is a force for good in the world. America’s support of Israel should make every American proud. We should not allow the inevitable complexities of modern geopolitics to obscure fundamental touchstones. No country or organization or individual should ever doubt this basic truth: A free and strong America will always stand with a free and strong Israel.

And standing by Israel does not mean with military and intelligence cooperation alone.

We cannot stand silent as those who seek to undermine Israel, voice their criticisms. And we certainly should not join in that criticism. Diplomatic distance in public between our nations emboldens Israel’s adversaries.

By history and by conviction, our two countries are bound together. No individual, no nation, no world organization, will pry us apart.

***

[I]f the Republican left little doubt about his ardor for Netanyahu, the prime minister was glad to return the favor.

Despite recently telling Vanity Fair that he didn’t know Romney well, Netanyahu seemed to be auditioning for a future diplomatic buddy pic.

“We’ve known each other for many decades, since you were a young man, but for some reason, you still look young,” he said, prompting a laugh from Romney. “You’ve been a personal friend of mine and a strong friend of the state of Israel, and that’s why it’s a pleasure to welcome you here.”…

The moment was reminscent, if less gushing, of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy all but endorsing Obama four years ago when the then-senator came to Paris during a similar summer foreign tour.

It sure will be fun to hear what Levin says about it.

Maobama

Maubama? Come on, he isn’t Mau, Mau murdered like 30 million people. You are just engaging in a variation of Goodwin’s law. You are basically doing the same thing the left did when they said, “a vote for anybody but Obama is a vote for Bushitler!”.

Therefore, we have Mitt, and it IS up to ALL of us, as elections come around to ENSURE we put in office the ones who would benefit Conservatives the most!

We can’t affect things any other way, it’s a long slow process…

No, that’s not the only thing that matters, what ever gave you that absurd notion, are you a little kid who thinks this is some sort of game? What matters is our lives, liberty and our happiness. We need to save America and regain our freedom from people like Obama and Romney and insider traders like our Congress who have been systematically stripping it away.

Getting rid of creeps like Obama and Romney is only the first step, not an end unto itself. We have to get rid of all the crooks and cronies in our government, or as many as we can, and save America, not play partisan politics while Rome burns and our nations youth are irrevocably sold into slavery to other peoples debt.

Gary Johnson is the non-partisan choice, the American choice. Obama and Romney represent the European far left and far right. Screw them, vote for the most qualified candidate, the only successful governor running for President, Gary Johnson.

thatsafactjack on July 30, 2012 at 2:58 AM

Scrumpy good on you.

Bmore on July 30, 2012 at 2:47 AM

Thanks :-)…

Any vote not for Romney is for the commie in the WH.

AllahsNippleHair on July 30, 2012 at 2:49 AM

Exactly…

Gonna seek a tune to close out the nite! Brb…

Scrumpy on July 30, 2012 at 2:59 AM

I want to see him succeed.

thatsafactjack on July 30, 2012 at 2:55 AM

Good, glad I didn’t alienate you too. Seems I’ve been doing a bit of that lately. LOL! I guess I cued up that tune for you for nothing huh? Still a nice tune though. Never a bad time to play Zep. Matter of fact if memory serves Dire and I had an all Zep night here once. Or mostly all Zep. Like I said earlier, at least I think I said earlier, the memory she’s a going. ; )

Bmore on July 30, 2012 at 3:01 AM

Bmore on July 30, 2012 at 3:01 AM

Zep is always right and I enjoyed it, too! You’ve done nothing to alienate me at all. You’ve been very gracious.

I am going to bid you good night, though. Its been a pleasure, as always. See you soon, B. Sleep well.

thatsafactjack on July 30, 2012 at 3:06 AM

For my tone deaf friend, LevinFan.

AllahsNippleHair on July 30, 2012 at 3:06 AM

Good night all. Its been a pleasure!

thatsafactjack on July 30, 2012 at 3:07 AM

You know what I’ve noticed here at HA lately? There are some folks you just plain ole can’t reason with. I’m moving on. Y’all sit by the freaking tracks and cry if that’s what you’re happy doing. Fine. You’ll do it with out me. I’m a winner! And I like a winner!

Bmore on July 30, 2012 at 3:08 AM

Good Night thatsafactjack, Pleasant Dreams.

AllahsNippleHair on July 30, 2012 at 3:11 AM

Had a nice evening all in all, some laughs, some tears. KWR, sending love your way. xo

Good Night All.

Bmore on July 30, 2012 at 3:12 AM

Nighty night Bmore. A pleasure as always.

Did I miss something on KWR?
I saw she had a rough anniversary a week ago. Sending prayers, one of my fave posters when I used to lurk.

AllahsNippleHair on July 30, 2012 at 3:15 AM

AllahsNippleHair on July 30, 2012 at 3:15 AM

She has lung cancer. Pray for her…

OmahaConservative on July 30, 2012 at 3:20 AM

Screw them, vote for the most qualified candidate, the only successful governor running for President, Gary Johnson.

FloatingRock

Are you mental patients even allowed to vote?

xblade on July 30, 2012 at 3:26 AM

AllahsNippleHair on July 30, 2012 at 3:15 AM

She has lung cancer. Pray for her…

OmahaConservative on July 30, 2012 at 3:20 AM

Oh no. I will pray. She’s had enough sadness. :-(

AllahsNippleHair on July 30, 2012 at 3:27 AM

Stupid people refusing to vote for Romney to stop Maobama or thinking that we can just use gridlock to stop Maobama really
p!sses me off!

LevinFan

Don’t let them fool you. They’re not voting for Romney because Obama is their guy.

xblade on July 30, 2012 at 3:29 AM

Well, on that note, gonna go say my prayers.
Goodnight all.
Chin up, KWR. You have many here praying and pulling for you.

AllahsNippleHair on July 30, 2012 at 3:29 AM

Awesome and sobering. : 0

listens2glenn on July 29, 2012 at 11:58 PM

..sorry about not getting back to you; I go lost in the shuffle. Thank you for the visit and it’s kinda interesting to see how that type of mission is carried out. They’re brave folks! Betcha Hawkdriver could spin some years.

FloatingRock on July 30, 2012 at 2:49 AM

Gary Johnson is a f*ck up hack.

AllahsNippleHair on July 30, 2012 at 2:51 AM

..is this clown still banging that gong, Allah? It grows beyond tedious. Ignore him. Those screeds absolutely ruin QOTD.

The War Planner on July 30, 2012 at 3:58 AM

If Obama, who copied Obamacare from Romney, should be called Maubama, what does that make Romney? Mussomney?

FloatingRock on July 30, 2012 at 2:38 AM

O/T: regarding the Palin Thread: my take.

kingsjester on July 30, 2012 at 6:41 AM

joe, being his usual putzzy self, they’re talking about mitt and israel and right out of the blue, turns to john heilman(sp) and starts to trash palin with the cheney remark…idiot..he truly doesn’t want to lose his job at msdnc

cmsinaz on July 30, 2012 at 6:42 AM

kingsjester on July 30, 2012 at 6:41 AM

Great post! I agree that it will all come back to bite them.

Night Owl on July 30, 2012 at 6:57 AM

The Palin thread is a train wreck. I’ve been lurking there for hours…

OmahaConservative on July 30, 2012 at 2:05 AM

I avoided the Palin thread..I made one comment and ran away. I get in enough trouble without hanging around over there.

Terrye on July 30, 2012 at 7:00 AM

Well Well Well, cmsinaz!

Let’s see what you’re made of. The obese Tingles Matthews just sat down to the Moaning Joe table and is going to “discuss the star power of Bill Clinton – Barack Obama”.

Think you can handle it???? Not me, I found Olympic stuff being broadcast and would rather watch Korean volleyball against some country I’ve never heard of.

I’ve always wondered why the GOP Elite and our “fiscal Conservatives” (ahem) are trying so hard to alienate the largest political ideology in this country…Conservatives.

kingsjester on July 30, 2012 at 7:01 AM

cmsinaz on July 30, 2012 at 6:42 AM

LOL! JD Hayworth is filling in all this week on my local morning radio show. So far he’s doing a pretty good job.

xblade on July 30, 2012 at 3:29 AM

I think that is true. Remember, this is the internet…we are not in our living rooms chatting face to face..these people are not always who they say they are. Some of these socalled TruCons and libertarians are actually on the other side.

Of course that could be true about me too. But it is not. Honest.

Ol’ J.D. can talk a stump out of the ground. I’ve heard him before. He does alright.

kingsjester on July 30, 2012 at 7:01 AM

Well, I’m not the paranoid type, but I wonder if there is a woman anywhere they would find acceptable as Presidential material. It seems like the bar is much, much higher than it is for men. Hope I’m not starting something here!

Night Owl on July 30, 2012 at 7:06 AM

The problem is:

1. Sarah’s a woman.
2. Sarah’s a Christian.
3. Sarah’s a Reagan Conservative.
4. Sarah’s a Beltway Outsider.
5. Sarah tells it like it is.
