Skip to comments.Romney on Iran: Share Same ‘Red Line’ As Obama
Posted on 09/16/2012 6:43:00 PM PDT by WilliamIII
Mitt Romney has skewered President Obamas Iran policy. But in an exclusive interview, days after the Israeli Prime Minister criticized the U.S. for not putting red lines before Iran, Romney told me he would draw the same line in the sand as Obama. My red line is Iran may not have a nuclear weapon. It is inappropriate for them to have the capacity to terrorize the world. Iran with a nuclear weapon or with fissile material that can be given to Hezbollah or Hamas or others has the potential of not just destabilizing the Middle East. But it could be brought here, Romney said. Look, Iran as a nuclear nation is unacceptable to the United States of America, he said. I pointed out that President Obama also says it is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon and asked Romney if he therefore has the same red line as Obama? Yes, Romney said.

obama has had four years and has done nothing to stop Iran from acquiring a nuke...obama has said he was also going to “clean up” Wall Street; in four years not one prosecution of any Wall Street financier for any crime...in eight years GWB prosecuted 1300 Wall Street financiers, Clinton 1100...
another swing and a miss from the criminal liberal media...
Doesn’t matter what the topic, George Stephanopolous and ABC News are an illegitimate news source.
Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
The title of the article is ridiculous, as many commenters have said. Romney was making the point that he agrees with Obama’s statement “we will not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon”, yet Romney actually sets out a plan here and makes clear that even having the fissile material that could be given to Hamas or Hezbollah is going too far. More spin from ABC (African Butt Cleaners).
SO Romney is the same as Obama so we might as well elect the Mulatto, is that it George?
Sheesh! How lame.
“The difference, Romney says, is what he would do to keep Iran from reaching the line.”
it must be highlighted obama has done nothing...when the iran police were macheteeing people in the streets, obama did nothing...
Romney seems to be under the impression he can steal Hussein’s cult followers by agreeing with what Hussein says.
Read the article before backing up George’s idiotic ramblings.
Despite their spin, a republican foreign policy on Iran would NOT be the same. Netanyahu trusts Romney, detests Obama.
When are you going to know they’ve got a bomb? It’s a little late for red lines when you’re obliterated off the face of the planet. Preferable to obliterate them first.
The difference is: Romney & Israel will do something about it...with Romney working WILLINGLY with Bibi.
Obamugabe has to be dragged to even pretend like he is cooperating.
Damn, just don’t accept the deceiving headline.
If you believe ABC is going to edit the top line of their news stories with anything but Obamugabe propaganda, you’re nuts.
Romney apparently goes on to talk about how Obamugabe has failed and how he would handle things differently.
The pant-wetters and the ABRs will always complain about something.
even the comments on the ABC site under the story are calling steponimapieceofgarbage out for the ignorance of the title...
It’s all, indeed more, than 90% of the electorate will read or hear.
Obama did no such thing.
The only what we’d know Iran actually has The Bomb is when they use it.
Bet before it happened, 0bama would have said that the red line with Al Queda was the killing of our citizens. His red lines only work until someone steps across, then he draws another and another and another.
If you are a pussy, don’t draw any red lines.
