We got into Mitt Romney's comment that if Obama remains President, Iran will get the bomb - - and if he, Romney, is elected President, Iran won't get the bomb. This plays pretty close to Senator John McCain's "Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran" comment in the 2008 presidential race. In my view it's vapid fearmongering and incredibly unpresidential for someone of Romney's potential consequence as a national leader not to talk about the potential consequences and net positives that come with potential military action.
If war, or force, are the tools that Mitt Romney first wants to use in dealing with serious national security challenges, then he is not ready to be President of the United States.
