As we all know there has been a steady drumbeat toward starting a war with Iranon the right over the past several months.
Furthermore, the guys likely to be tapped as foreign policy staff by Romney are the same neocon hawks that led Dubya and the American people in to war with Iraq: Mitt Romney’s war cabinet
It’s evident that if we elect Romney President, the chances that we will be mired down in yet ANOTHER pointless and stupid Middle Eastern war go WAAAAAAY up, at a time when jobs are rare, pay for those employed is stagnant, and the rich are just plain buying our government. The prospect of war with Iran good for defense contractors and their Republican buddies whose SuperPACS get their money, bad for everyone else.
Yet I don’t see this being used as a talking point by the Dems. Repubicans are idiot warhawks. The American people are stupid and can easily be scared into war (see: Iraq) but tend not to like it once the bills (in human lives, in money) come due. Why the hell not call Romney “the warhawk candidate who will drive us all to bankruptcy”? Does the Democratic leadership think Americans can be sold another Middle East war?
