HOW’S that pledge not to be like Mitt Romney going?

Two months before the 2012 presidential election, Vice President Biden warned on the campaign trail that Mitt Romney wanted to go to war with Syria…

“He said it was a mistake to set an end date for our warriors in Afghanistan and bring them home. He implies by the speech that he’s ready to go to war in Syria and Iran,” Biden said in his speech.
Biden also went after the Republican presidential nominee when Romney called Russia America’s “number one geopolitical foe.”

“He wants to move from cooperation to confrontation with Putin’s Russia,” Biden said. “And these guys say the president’s out of touch? Out of touch? Swiss bank account, untold millions in the Cayman Islands. Who’s out of touch, man?”

 

Romney told CBS News in 2012:

“I think we have to also be ready to take whatever action is necessary to ensure that we do not have any kind of weapon of mass destruction falling into the hands of terrorists and whether that requires troops, or whether that requires other actions by our friends and allies,” Romney said.

Romney also said he would arm the Syrian rebels battling President Bashar Assad’s forces… Biden said last week there is no doubt that Assad’s government is responsible for the heinous use of chemical weapons…

Obama is calling on Congress to approve a military strike on Syria.

 

Anyhow, war’s over:
