Despite all of his recent bluster, posturing, and smears regarding the President’s Iran record, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney admitted in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that he shares the same red line on Iran as President Barack Obama. Stephanopoulos reported:
Mitt Romney has skewered President Obama’s Iran policy. But in an exclusive interview, days after the Israeli Prime Minister criticized the U.S. for not putting ‘red lines before Iran,’ Romney told me he would draw the same line in the sand as Obama.
‘My red line is Iran may not have a nuclear weapon. It is inappropriate for them to have the capacity to terrorize the world. Iran with a nuclear weapon or with fissile material that can be given to Hezbollah or Hamas or others has the potential of not just destabilizing the Middle East. But it could be brought here,’ Romney said.
‘Look, Iran as a nuclear nation is unacceptable to the United States of America,’ he said.
I pointed out that President Obama also says it is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon and asked Romney if he therefore has the same ‘red line’ as Obama?
‘Yes,’ Romney said.
