Honestly, it’s embarrassing.
Via Think Progress:
And then there is Mitt Romney making a campaign promise to hand over the keys to the Oval Office to Israel:
he actions that I will take will be actions recommended and supported by Israeli leaders. I don’t seek to take actions independent of what our allies think is best, and if Israel’s leaders thought that a move of that nature would be helpful to their efforts, then that’s something I’ll be inclined to do. But again, that’s a decision which I would look to the Israeli leadership to help guide. I don’t think America should play the role of the leader of the peace process, instead we should stand by our ally. Again, my inclination is to follow the guidance of our ally Israel, as to where our facilities and embassies would exist.
The role of the President of the United States is to put the interests of the United States first, above all else. And anyone and everyone would be outraged if any candidate made the above statement about any of our other allies, whether France, Germany, Japan or anyone else. But Israel? It’s not only acceptable, it’s required.
And then you have the GOP candidates declaring their unwavering support for the use of waterboarding/torture (except Jon Huntsman) and war with Iran.
