Douche Bag Of The Week: Mitt Romney

Republican Mitt Romney said he would be willing to use a military blockade or "bombardment of some kind" to prevent Iran from gaining a nuclear weapon.

After the Bush administration announced new sanctions designed to isolate Iran, Romney applauded the move. He has been advocating a hard line against Iran throughout his presidential campaign and said military action would be necessary if severe economic and diplomatic sanctions don't convince Iranian leaders to abandon pursuit of a nuclear weapon.

"If for some reasons they continue down their course of folly toward nuclear ambition, then I would take military action if that's available to us," Romney told a crowd of doctors and nurses during a question period that followed a health care speech. He added: "That's an option that's on the table. And it's is not something which we'll spell out specifically. I really can't lay out exactly how that would be done, but we have a number of options from blockade to bombardment of some kind. And that's something we very much have to keep on the table, and we will ready ourselves to be able to take, because, frankly, I think it's unacceptable for Iran to have nuclear weapons."

Last year, while still governor, Romney refused to provide a security escort or any state services in support of former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami, who visited Massachusetts to speak at Harvard University. In January, Romney traveled to a security conference in Israel, where he called for economic sanctions against Iran similar to those against South Africa during its apartheid period.

In September, he chastised Columbia University for allowing Ahmadinejad to speak on its campus, and railed against the Iranian leader after he asked to visit ground zero.

He is currently relishing in his endorsement from the head of Bob Jones University.

Mitt Romney is my Douche Bag of the Week.

I once knew some Mormons and they were the nicest people ever; I've often thought about what they'd think of old Mitt "Theocracy" Romney.

Mitt Romney is SUCH AN ASS.

Those of us who live in the Bay State know what a pandering, self-important, bigoted prick he really is. He didn't do SHIT while he was governor except position himself to run for president using his own state to run against to get his "bonafides" as a conservative. He will say anything that you want to hear to get your vote. HE IS A WHORE.

How can you tell the mother-in-law at a Mormon wedding? She's the pregnant one.
