This was the brief segment on foreign policy in Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech last night. Yes I know Clint Eastwood stole the show, but this went down after 11 pm.
On another front, every American is less secure today because he has failed to slow Iran’s nuclear threat. In his first TV interview as president, he said we should talk to Iran. We’re still talking and Iran’s centrifuges are still spinning. President Obama has thrown allies like Israel under the bus, even as he has relaxed sanctions on Castro’s Cuba.
Notice that Iran is a threat to the U.S. I’m sure Obama will push back today. Though he is running against Romney on abortion rights, on gay marriage and other progressive themes — he can’t run against this. He will state vehemently that he has not thrown Israel under the bus, and he hasn’t: because he has backed away on every statement he made about the conflict in that first few months of his presidency.
Apologies for the ad in that video. And thanks to Ira Glunts.
