You can’t pull out of Iraq, for pete’s sake. I’m running for office
Unlikable once and future presidential candidate Mitt Romney does not like the idea that President Obama is bringing our boys (none of whom incidentally is named Tagg, Josh, Ben, Craig, or Matt Romney) home from Iraq:
“President Obama’s astonishing failure to secure an orderly transition in Iraq has unnecessarily put at risk the victories that were won through the blood and sacrifice of thousands of American men and women. The unavoidable question is whether this decision is the result of a naked political calculation or simply sheer ineptitude in negotiations with the Iraqi government. The American people deserve to hear the recommendations that were made by our military commanders in Iraq.”
One wonders what Romney’s response would be if the military commanders in Iraq requested the presence of these five strapping young bucks in order to complete the “orderly transition”? He’d probably change his tune.
Fortunately he has had a lot of practice at that
