SMH: Mitt Romney seems to think he’s Moses, who can command the Red Seas to part and ignite the burning bush just by saying the word. His top foreign policy adviser, Richard Williamson, claims we wouldn’t be seeing this type of demonstration if Mitt Romney had been president. The man lives in an alternate universe. The Middle East has always been a tinderbox.
“There’s a pretty compelling story that if you had a President Romney, you’d be in a different situation,” Richard Williamson, a top Romney foreign policy adviser, said in an interview. “For the first time since Jimmy Carter, we’ve had an American ambassador assassinated.”
Williamson added, “In Egypt and Libya and Yemen, again demonstrations — the respect for America has gone down, there’s not a sense of American resolve and we can’t even protect sovereign American property.”
Interesting. Were there numerous embassy attacks under the George W. Bush administration? Here’s the bigger question for me, where are the “real” policy experts that Mitt Romney has around him? Richard Williamson and Dan Senor (Mr. Campbell Brown) aren’t experts. They are on the periphery of truly qualified people to help Romney make plausible decisions. Mitt Romney doesn’t explain what he would have done to make the U.S. foreign policy better. Um, that’s because he has no vision and is just reciting talking points from two policy neophytes.
