GOP Operatives Lead at Iraq Press Office Watching former Bush toady, Dan Senor, on Morning Joe talking about how Middle Eastern leaders ignore Obama and how Obama has no plan but if Mittens stepped in, he could bring Middle Eastern "peace" without putting any extra boots on the ground because Mittens is a "leader" everyone would follow. This isn't some high school bully getting 5 guys to tackle a shy, quiet kid so he could assault kid without getting himself dirty. Republicans were unprepared for the Middle East under Bush and they haven't learned anything since. Are there any Republicans who actually believe that a guy that grew up even more insulated and disconnected than Bush would succeed more than Barrack HUSSEIN Obama? Romney would enlist the aid of China (with whom he wants to start a trade war) and Russia (who he says is our number on geopolitical foe)? Where do Republicans get these fantasies that they could create enemies and then tell the enemies what to do and they would do it? Republicans can lie to the America people, but unlike America, foreign countries are "paying attention". They remember. A Romney Middle East would end up an even bigger disaster than Bush. Hard as that is to believe that's even possible.
