Romney will take us to war

By tmcbpatriot


Mitt Romney, October 22, 2012 (Debate #3): "In the 2000 debates there was no mention of terrorism, for instance. And a year later, 9/11 happened. So we have to make decisions based upon uncertainty. And that means a strong military. I will not cut our military budget."

Al Gore, October 17, 2000 (Debate #3): "I served on the House Intelligence Committee and I worked hard to learn the subject of nuclear arms control and how we can diffuse these tensions and deal with non-proliferation and deal with the problems of terrorism and these new weapons of mass destruction. Look, we're gonna face some serious new challenges in the next four years."

George W. Bush, October 17, 2000 (Debate #3): "Saddam Hussein still is a threat in the Middle East. Our coalition against Saddam is unraveling. Sanctions are loosened. The man who may be developing weapons of mass destruction."

George W. Bush, October 11, 2000 (Debate #2): "We don't know whether he's developing weapons of mass destruction. He better not be or there's going to be a consequence should I be the president."


Keepin' the Peace. (Heh. Heh. Heh.)

Mitt Romney, October 22, 2012 (Debate #3): Let me -- let me step back and talk about what I think our mission has to be in the Middle East, and even more broadly, because our purpose is to make sure the world is more -- is peaceful. We want a peaceful planet."

George W. Bush, October 17, 2000 (Debate #3): "You're going to live in a peaceful world. It will be a world of peace because we're going to have a clear sight of foreign policy based upon a strong military and a mission that stands by our friends... I want to have the military keeping the peace... This is a peaceful nation, and I intend to keep the peace."


Strengthening Our Military

Mitt Romney, October 22, 2012 (Debate #3): "We don't want to get drawn into a military conflict... I do not want to see a military involvement on the part of -- of our -- of our troops. We need to have as well a strong military. Our military is second to none in the world."

"We're blessed with terrific soldiers and extraordinary technology and intelligence. But the idea of a trillion dollars in cuts through sequestration and budget cuts to the military would change that."

"And our military -- we've got to strengthen our military long-term."

"Look, this, in my view, is the highest responsibility of the president of the United States, which is to maintain the safety of the American people. And I will not cut our military budget by a trillion dollars, which is the combination of the budget cuts that the president has as well as the sequestration cuts. That, in my view, is -- is -- is making our future less certain and less secure. I won't do it. And of course, a military action is the last resort. It is something one would only, only consider if all of the other avenues had been -- had been tried to their full extent."

George W. Bush, October 17, 2000 (Debate #3): "Should I be fortunate enough to earn your confidence, the mission of the United States military will be to be prepared and ready to fight and win war. And therefore prevent war from happening in the first place."

"I want to make sure the equipment for our military is the best it can possibly be, of course. But we have an opportunity -- we have an opportunity to use our research and development capacities, the great technology of the United States, to make our military lighter, harder to find, more lethal. We have an opportunity, really, if you think about it, if we're smart and have got a strategic vision and a leader who understands strategic planning, to make sure that we change the terms of the battlefield of the future so we can keep the peace."


Don't vote for this guy, America. You've been warned. Don't be stupid. Okay?
