    Romney Fails Geography: "It's their route to the sea."

    "Syria is Iran's only ally in the Arab world. It's their route to the sea."


    :eusa_shhh: Iran has a large southern coastline with access to the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman. And it has no land border with Syria. :eusa_shhh:

    Yeah, I wondered about that when he said it. It made no sense, but these days . . .

    . . . once something is uttered by a politician, 2/3 of the population just assumes that it's true. The same thing applies to Obama's so-called "apology tour." That is a popular myth among right wingers, and it has become a truth for them.

    It is not a misspeak or slip of the tongue

    Anyone with even a minor understanding of geopolitics should know what he meant. And this isn't knew. He's described this situation the same way several times. Minus points for Romney on terrible wording of a point that holds merit.

    Minus 10,000 for LOLberal morans who dont understand geopolitical strategies and bring this up as if it is new.

    I guess a presidential candidate with such a public platform really has to have their geographic i's dotted, but as a former history teacher, I suspect the average citizen wouldn't even be able to get that close. :)

    My route to the show at the Beacon is through Ticketmaster. Hopefully this doesn't mean a geography lesson is in ordeer to point out that it makes no sense for me to go through the Ticketmaster Corp. headquarters building to get to the Beacon. Hopefully.

    Romney has repeated this line often. He can't get it straight, because his base will never criticize him for being a moron.
