Romney Rumbles

Caught at Ben Smith on Politico:-

At a VFW event in Texas today, Romney offers detailed criticism of a foreign policy he calls "muddled," though it isn't entirely clear here how he would have acted differently in Libya, aside from — he says — having seen it coming:

In the Mideast, we are pressuring our closest ally Israel to make concessions while putting almost no pressure on the Palestinians. The administration was quick to criticize Israel but slow to confront Syria’s strongman, Bashar al Assad, even though he facilitated arming Hezbollah, allowed terrorists to cross his border into Iraq to attack U.S. troops, and turned weapons on his own people. Instead of calling Mr. Assad a reformer, the administration should have labeled him a killer.
