Romney and Iran

Romney and Iran
If anyone doubts Romney’s neo-conservative foreign policy credentials, then read his op.ed. in yesterday’s Wash. Post. Linked below.

He assumes that Iran is building (a) military nuke. weapon(s), although the firm evidence is lacking on this conclusion.
He will rachet up the Iran sanctions.
And he will visit Jerusalem shortly after moving into the WH (” I will demonstrate our commitment to the world by making Jerusalem the destination of my first foreign trip. ..)
But he does not write that Jerusalem should continue to represent the three great religions in the world.

The neo-cons have attached themselves to Romney’s campaign, like active, fervent ideological barnacles on a wealthy cruise ship.
And these barnacles are “feathery little grabber things”, and they have grabbed hold of Mitt, Newt and very likely Santorum.
And barnacles feed on the “phytoplankon” of the billionaire pernicious,secret super-pacs.

The neo-cons barnacles that have attached themselves under the chairs of DC think tank offices, or the masthead of Bill Kristol’s Weekly Standard, are panting to return to power.
And Romney is their cats-paw to achieve that goal.
