Romney and Goldwater?  Reply with quote  

Romney says he would retaliate for nuclear attack by terrorists

By Jim Davenport, Associated Press Writer | August 31, 2007

NEWBERRY, S.C. --Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says that if terrorists detonated a nuclear bomb in a U.S. city while he was president he would retaliate "in a very dramatic and clear way."[...]

"But there's no question that people understand that the reason that we have the thousands upon thousands of nuclear warheads we have is that we intend to protect ourselves. And I would never shrink from protecting the American nation, the American people, nor shrink from retaliation if somebody used something as awful as a nuclear device. We will be safe."[...]

Hmmm, I wonder if this will cause Romney similar problems down the line if he gets the Republican nomination?

I finally figured out why Romney creeps me out so much-
he reminds me of a Stepford wife...

Also, his flip-flopping on issues makes Kerry look rock steady. He has changed his positions so many times it's impossible to know what he really stands for...except saying anything to get elected, of course.
