1) DO we know this was really published by Romney himself , much less written by him, where's the independent confirmation..

2) Funny that this comes out on the eve of the Rasmussen Poll that shows Romney with the first lead he's had in this election.


Just think about that for a moment, now I don't like Romney, I don't like Obama, but I've been calling throughout this for a bit of truth in advertising, we need some confirmation before i'll jump on the Mitt's a warmonger wagon...


THANK YOU!

I can find NOTHING in the state side news media where Romney made these statements!!!

OP -- can you show any actual proof that Romney made these statements?

Same can be said about any politician out there. How can so many people be naive enough to trust Obama or believe a word HE says? Answer - sometimes people just LUV that (D) or (R) so much that they close their eyes
to the facts that are right in front of them.

Romney .. wants to arm Syrian rebels.
Obama .. bombed Libya when we had no business doing so.
Romney .. flip flopper who made a mess out of Massachussets
Obama .. corrupt and proven liar.
Romney .. big business buddy
Obama .. lobbiest buddy

Come on America .. We have 300 million people in this country.
Can't we do better than these guys?



How is it exactly that Romney "made a mess out of Massachussets?"

BH: it says that's what he's going to do.. not that he has said this yet.. that's my point right now, where did he actually come out and those words utter out of his mouth, it's kinda like the story that ran locally here (and they had to retract) that Obama said he was opposed to allowing Israel remain a nation..

So far it's some "bit of paper" that has been circulated, the timing is suspect, and while I don't like Romney one bit (nor do I like Obama) until he comes out and actually says this, there's some room to wonder if he really feels this way..

And anyone else, please do not take my questioning the timing on this to in any way think I support Mitt Romney...

Okay .... seems this story is bogus ....
It says Mitt Romney WILL CALL FOR arming Syrian rebels etc etc
His big foreign policy speech was today. I watched. I didn't hear it.
If anyone can find a transcript that says he actually said that ... post it here.

What he DID say was that he wanted no daylight between us and Israel.
Those were his words. NO DAYLIGHT between us.
And he condemned Obama and others for 30,000 civilian deaths in Syria.
(no surprise .. it's an election cycle so he'll do that).

But I didn't hear anything about arming the Syrian rebels ... or did I miss it???

In the speech that I heard, he called for helping to supply the people with our/his values? To help them over throw Assad and bring down his regime. Who are the people trying to bring down Assads regime? They have our values? Regime change via Terrorism?

Here is corroborating evidence to suggest that Romney did in fact state these things.


Romney pledged that his administration would work to find elements of the Syrian opposition who share US values and ensure they obtain weapons needed to defeat Syrian President Bashir al-Assad's forces and end his crackdown. Syrian rebels have accused the United States and Western allies of sitting on the sidelines of the conflict.


There is also a video showing it coming right out of Romney's mouth, so please click the link:

www.stuff.co.nz...


The Republican presidential challenger told voters the US must spend more, not less, on defence and effectively fight a proxy war against Iran by ensuring Syrian anti-government forces "obtain the arms they need to defeat Assad's tanks, helicopters, and fighter jets".

Well said. Since Obama also helped the Lybian rebels, is Obama a warmonger too?

yes the basic info is true,,,

at a speech at VMI (virginia military institute) only 3 hours ago....

heres a different source:

www.cbsnews.com...


...Romney called for more direct intervention in Syria, including making sure anti-government opposition forces have weapons....



there is no speech press release here, maybe a press release text of the speech would explain his proposal more clearly & in detail....~ such as another "Guardian" report that only the AQ who support the USA will receive this military aid & arms~
see: www.guardian.co.uk...



i think that Øbama already has the Syria free army (aka AQ) already planned with financial aid...along with million$ for the Muslim Brotherhood (who supports the Syria regime if they cannot take it over first)

Something isn't right here, a foreign news service has a video clip that our own news service doesn't have? On a potential Presidential candidate?

Right as his poll numbers are going up...

hmmmm..

Interesting.

So now we have Romney the Commie because of his support for the Chinese, in "sharing what "we" have with them"

and now

Al Qaeda Romney, because he is giving weapons and money to America's Enemies that have attacked us!

So, on one hand, you have Obama the Marxist, Socialist Wall Street Puppet

and on the other hand you have

Romney the Commie Terrorist Wall Street Puppet.

Nice selection they have given us to "choose" from

romney is hijacking all of obamas ideas.

and he does it very well.

he'll take an obama position, jump in, say he'll do it great and then leave everybody with the impression that that great idea was his and take obama out of the equation.

obama better wake up, or else he'll have the whole world believing he's the president instead of some candidate.

How is that odd? The U.S. news services are laughable. If you really want news you have to go to foreign outlets most of the time.

Don't we ever learn?

Arming the enemies of our enemies in the Middle East is a bad move. Need examples?

Taliban

Come on.

First you say that there isn't any other evidence supporting the initial reports. Now that it came directly from the horses mouth, you are suspicious that it is coming from a foreign news service.
