Mitt Romney Is As Out Of Touch As Marie Antoinette

Kansas City, Examiner, ran a summary from a portion of Romney’s book –

“In Romney’s book, he discusses how the U.S. should not apologize for its “greatness” and feels President Barack Obama shouldn’t either, while citing various times the President has apologized for the country’s historical record of involvement in foreign nations and coup d’etats, such as the 1953 CIA clandestine overthrow of Iranian leader Mohammad Mosaddegh.”

After reading for the millionth time about Romney and "No Apology", it is time to realize exactly what Mitt Romney is wanting to accomplish -

Mitt Romney is attempting to press Americans “hot buttons”, in order to elevate himself as a patriot and distract from his political inconsistencies. Mitt must feel Americans do not know their history and is planning on people’s ignorance to buy into his banter and make enemies globally.

Let’s look at the history -

Mossaddegh over-throw served British oil interest, not American interest. The coup is the primary reason we have bad relations with Iranians and in the region today.

The history behind the over-throw of Mossaddegh, was British oil companies were defrauding Iran of revenue. Iran was receiving a pittance in revenue from Britain. Mossaddegh approached Britain demanding a 50% of the oil revenue, which was the industry standard then as it is today. At the time of the coup, America brokered a 50/50 deal with the Saudi’s.

Mossaddegh was allowing a free press in Iran; he was moving his nation towards an open western style democracy and viewed American as an ally. The British refused the offer of a 50/50 partnership and Mossaddegh in response, nationalized Iranian oil. Britain began planning a coup against Mossaddegh; however, Britain was discovered and then turned to the U.S. for help.

Britain had convinced America, Iran was going through a communist take-over and Iran was planning on becoming allies with Russia. Iran at the time, viewed America as an ally believing the U.S. would back them. Iran had no love for Russia, due to Russian occupation in north Iran in WWII, and Russia’s historical meddling in Iranian politics.

President Truman was not in favor of the coup. Eisenhower approved the coup due to his war time connections. It was a huge error. When knowledge of the coup came to light, it damaged our nation globally, ultimately leading to the rise of the Ayatollah’s.

Most sensible people recognize the coup was a poor decision, did not serve America’s interest; not only harming our nation, but other nations with unexpected ‘blow-back’.

However one feels about Obama’s apology, con or pro, the apology took place during a moment in time. While Mitt’s continually harping on the subject, for political purpose, is doing world view damage to this country. Romney would further damage this nation globally, if he were elected into the presidency, due to his combativeness and lack of diplomacy, increasing the influence of Russia and China.

  1. Haha how old are you? 3? What in the world does that have to really do with Romney? This article was poorly written. Association does not imply causation is a good rule of thumb when making accusations in law and the political arena.

  2. 0 comments so far? I'm just looking out for you, but stop wasting your time writing these articles. Apparently no one else really reads them. In most articles with a blog, there should be at least 100 responses. But all I see is a big fat 0.

  3. You missed the point of the article. This was the point:

    "Mitt Romney is attempting to press Americans “hot buttons”, in order to elevate himself as a patriot and distract from his political inconsistencies."

    There are many blogs which do not get 100 responses. I doubt if YOU are looking out for me, at least not in a 'kind' way.

    All I see anonymous is YOU are a big fat 0.

  4. Anonymous, did you forget to dye your hair red? Got your horns in place?

    This group has peeked in and posted:

    "an ad hoc group including Steven Deace, Gregg Jackson, Dr. Earle Fox, Phil Magnan, and John Haskins (see affiliations below) and others"

    "Ninety-five legal authorities, social conservative leaders, writers and radio hosts and other public persons are listed below. Each affirms here (or has previously affirmed in their own words) some or all of the disturbing content of this letter. Signatures of countless state-level and grassroots leaders have not been listed in the interest of brevity."
    ____________

    They are a ton better than you Anonymous, not hateful, crooked and a cheater like you.

    The blog is to keep as complete a list of Mitt Romneys flip and flops, for reference.

  5. I checked out all those people and their credentials. Most of them I have never heard of before, and I am even a major c-span viewer. The letter to Rush had weak arguments which usually only cited one incident, and it is deceptive when they only place part of the quote. I have seen amazing propaganda artists who are able to turn a story into a complete falsehood by misplacing quotes. I trust sources such as Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh because of their consistency.

  6. They really sold you back in 08 didn't they???

    You do realize that if you obsessed this much about pretty much any politician (either side) you would find a mountain of contradictions.... heaven forbid anybody take a look at Obama's flip-flops between the campaign and now.

    I'd suggest you find something more worthwhile to do with your time.
