I’m guessing that even Willard Romney can’t explain Willard Romney’s Afghanistan policy. Josh Rogin reports that nobody else can either:
Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s policy on the future of U.S.-led war in Afghanistan war is unclear and confusing, complicating attempts to either support or criticize it during the campaign, according to leading senators from both parties. [...]
But when it comes to what a President Romney would do differently from Obama on Afghanistan if and when he became president, the details remain sketchy. [...]
Last week, The Cable asked several senior senators from both parties whether they supported Romney’s plan for Afghanistan. None was able to articulate exactly what that policy is or what the U.S. force in Afghanistan might look like if Romney is elected.
“What is it?” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a Romney supporter and senior member of the Armed Services Committee. [...]
Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-AZ) said he wasn’t sure exactly what Romney’s Afghanistan policy entailed and didn’t want to get into it.
Of course, Team Obama can use this GOP comment stew to compare Romney’s lack of foreign policy experience to the president’s, not to mention Obama’s national security successes *coughBinLadencough*.
Add a big splash of Bain Pain and a big pinch of Where’s the Tax Returns? and a big ol’ slab of
Mystery Mittstery Meat and voila! A recipe for Willard Fail.
