Romney slams Obama for trying to take Iran out of the campaign, Khameni praises Obama

Republican candidate Mitt Romney slammed President Obama on Thursday for trying to remove Iran's nuclear program as a campaign issue in the Presidential race.
“President Obama is trying to insulate himself from criticism and declare the Iran issue off-limits because he knows his naïve policies have failed to dissuade Iran from its pursuit of nuclear weapons,” Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul told The Jerusalem Post.

“The American people will not tolerate his nakedly political attempt to squelch debate on the most pressing national security issue facing America,” she said.

Saul indicated that Romney had no intention of refraining from offering “strong and resolute” policies on Iran or from criticizing Obama on his approach.
The statement was issued in response to Obama's Tuesday press conference, in which he warned against 'beating the drums of war.'

Meanwhile, one indication of just how bad Obama's policies are is that they were praised by Iran's Ayatollah Ali Khameni.
“We heard two days ago that the US president said that [they] are not thinking about war with Iran. These words are good words and an exit from delusion,” Khamenei said, according to the official press agency IRNA.
Republican Jewish Coalition Chairman Matt Brooks comments:
“In the president, the Iranians see a lack of resolve and they see opportunities” for continuing nuclear activities, Brooks charged. “The Republicans in contrast are offering a much different vision that is much tougher and more aggressive.”
Read the whole thing.

This reminds me of Obama's attempt earlier in the campaign - via the ADL and AJC - to remove Israel as an issue. Absolutely not. Discussing the issues are the only chance that Jewish voters (and donors) might see that a second Obama term is about the worst thing that could happen to Israel.
