Last night’s final presidential debate showed that Mitt Romney’s foreign policy positions are all over the map. He has come full circle from being a candidate who during the primaries opposed almost ever position the President has taken, to a candidate who agrees with virtually everything the President has done. It must have been painful for Republicans to watch their candidate essentially saying “On Foreign policy, I’m with that guy [President Obama].”
In addition to taking an etch-a-sketch to his positions from his campaign for President Mitt Romney managed to fail simple geography when talking about the ties between Syria and Iran.
“Maybe one of the few bright spots in the Middle East developments in the last year has been the rising of the people in Syria against [President Bashar al-] Assad. Obviously, as you know, Syria is Iran’s only Arab ally in the region. Syria is the route that allows Iran to supply Hezbollah with weapons in Lebanon. Syria is Iran’s route to the sea.”
As you can see below, even Dora the Explorer could figure out that Iran has both southern and northern borders with seas.
