If Romney is trying to have a “I have a big penis” moment in order to win over the many Republicans who don’t like him or trust him (like the NASCAR voters who now prefer Obama), he’s failing to see how dangerous the war talk really is. By promoting another expensive war it only shows how ill prepared he is to lead. Romney’s pro-war talk is not productive for any reason.
President Barack Obama hit back hard in a “60 Minutes” interview broadcast Sunday at Mitt Romney’s criticisms of his handling of Syria and Iran, saying that if the Republican standard-bearer “is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so.”
Obama also brushed aside talk that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been pressuring him to take a harder line on Iran’s suspicious nuclear program — source of some of Romney’s sharpest campaign-trail criticisms.
“When it comes to our national security decisions– any pressure that I feel is simply to do what’s right for the American people. And I am going to block out any noise that’s out there,” the president said.
