A top Romney foreign policy advisor, Richard Williamson, said today the embassy violence in the Middle East wouldn’t be happening under a Romney presidency.
He has a crystal ball, perhaps? Gee, with such prescience, why hasn’t he been advising the president? Together they could have prevented all this. Oh, that’s right. Obama’s a Democrat. We certainly can’t have Republicans working with Democrats for the good of the country. Just think, Chris Stevens and his three embassy staffers would still be alive if only Williamson had shared his unique insight with the president. Or maybe he just thinks he’ll get Romney elected and then roll back the clock a few months and undo all this violence.
If wishes were horses, Mr. Williamson. If wishes were horses.
As for things being better with Romney in the White House … we got a taste of his foreign diplomacy abilities (presumably with Williamson’s expert advice) when he insulted the Brits about their Olympic preparations. And we got another taste of it when he went off half-cocked Tuesday night and accused the president of apologizing to the rioting Muslims. It’s beginning to look like the only thing Mitt Romney knows about foreign policy is how to open offshore bank accounts.
