Robert Parry: Bloice's Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day
September 11, 2012

'With most political observers predicting a close
election in November, the neocons hope that they
can ride back into power in Washington behind a
President Romney and then resume their role as his
foreign policy foremen, advising the inexperienced
Romney much as they did the novice Bush.

'In making a choice for President, therefore, the
American voters must realize that they are electing
not just the people on the ballot but a cast of
advisers who come along with the winners. Mitt
Romney has made clear that he will staff much of
his foreign policy team with neocon retreads from
the Bush-43 administration.

'Though these neocons always talk tough, the
overwhelming evidence now indicates that when the
United States was actually under the imminent
threat of a domestic attack, the arrogant neocons
blocked a meaningful response. Then, after the
devastation, they compounded the mistake by
diverting the U.S. military into a war on Iraq, which
had nothing to do with 9/11.

'One of the questions that American voters might
want to consider before Nov. 6 is whether a Romney
presidency, staffed with belligerent neocons, would
make the United States safer or put its citizens more
at risk.'
