Mitt Romney provides a welcome contrast to all the weak-kneed recent responses to Iraq:

Amid growing concern among Republicans over the course of the war in Iraq, Governor Mitt Romney expressed support yesterday for President Bush’s approach and warned that a premature withdrawal of American troops would inspire terrorists worldwide.

‘’The enemy is emboldened by anything other than the strength of America,” Romney said.

Romney, who is weighing a presidential run in 2008, said in a brief interview yesterday that, like many Americans, he wants to see US troops pulled out of Iraq as soon as possible and stability brought to the country ‘’on the earliest possible timetable.” But he declined to advocate a specific timetable for bringing troops home and said it would be a mistake if the Bush administration committed to one publicly.

If he keeps talking like that, he’s got a shot at my vote…

    Hagel has triangulated himself out of existence as far as I’m concerned. If he pulled his skirt up over his head and ran around in circles screaming about mutant rabbits attacking him, he could hardly be more ridiculous. Thank God for primaries.

    Agreed…I think Hagel is my new least favorite Republican…

    Romney is speaking the clearest on the ongoing war on terror. He’s blunt, straight-forward, and right.
