More than 70 percent of Romney’s foreign policy advisers worked for the Bush administration, according to The Nation. One of Romney’s closest foreign policy advisers, Dan Senor, is the former spokesman for the American government in Iraq.

<span style='font-size: 20pt'>Eight of Romney’s foreign policy advisers also participated in the Project for a <u>New American Century</u>, a neoconservative think tank that influenced Bush’s military and foreign policies.</span>

And there were continuing warnings and requests for meetings for the entire eight months.

We have the books of numerous CIA and Counter Terrorist Experts, as proof.

I thought Bush did well on foreign policy though I was concerned about the Jewish influence. In addition, Romney dragged out Sununu a remnant from GHW Bush... another failed presidency. Both are reasons not to vote for him but I can't vote for Goode either. Neither am I enthused about the Libertarian Party. Maybe I have to write in my own name...someone with whom I am almost totally aligned.

Forgive me if I couldn't care less what you do, after having read such a completely absurd statement!

Bush was a Foreign Policy disaster that we are still trying to undo and overcome, both economically, and in our foreign relations losses!
