Romney:::: In March the Rev. Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention told the Romney campaign it could win over “recalcitrant conservatives,” reported the Washington Post, by “previewing a few Cabinet selections: Santorum as attorney general, Gingrich as ambassador to the United Nations and John Bolton as secretary of state.” That suggestion, which might seem ludicrous, not to mention terrifying, is more plausible than one might think.

In December Gingrich pledged at a forum sponsored by the Republican Jewish Coalition that he would appoint Bolton to run Foggy Bottom. But the mustachioed über-hawk, who was a controversial under secretary of state for arms control and UN ambassador in the Bush administration, endorsed Romney instead. Bolton has since campaigned energetically for him, serving as a key surrogate on national security issues.“Many conservatives hope that [will] include accepting a senior national security post in a Romney administration,” wrote Jennifer Rubin, a neoconservative blogger for the Post.

Few advisers personify the pugnacity of Romney’s foreign policy team better than Bolton. He has been a steadfast opponent of international organizations and treaties and seems never to have met a war he didn’t like. Shortly before the invasion of Iraq, he told Israeli officials that Syria, Iran and North Korea would be the next US targets. Over the past few years Bolton has been an outspoken proponent of an Israeli attack on Iran.“Mitt Romney will restore our military, repair relations with our closest allies and ensure that no adversary—including Iran—ever questions American resolve,” Bolton said when endorsing Romney.“John’s wisdom, clarity and courage are qualities that should typify our foreign policy,” Romney responded.

......... Peace Doesn't Make Money For The Rich.!!!!!

Romney is loath to mention Bush on the campaign trail, for obvious reasons, but today they sound like ideological soul mates on foreign policy. Listening to Romney, you’d never know that Bush left office bogged down by two unpopular wars that cost America dearly in blood and treasure. Of Romney’s forty identified foreign policy advisers, more than 70 percent worked for Bush. Many hail from the neoconservative wing of the party, were enthusiastic backers of the Iraq War and are proponents of a US or Israeli attack on Iran. Christopher Preble, a foreign policy expert at the Cato Institute, says,“Romney’s likely to be in the mold of George W. Bush when it comes to foreign policy if he were elected.” On some key issues, like Iran, Romney and his team are to the right of Bush. Romney’s embrace of the neoconservative cause—even if done cynically to woo the right—could turn into a policy nightmare if he becomes president.

If we take the candidate at his word, a Romney presidency would move toward war against Iran; closely align Washington with the Israeli right; leave troops in Afghanistan at least until 2014 and refuse to negotiate with the Taliban; reset the Obama administration’s “reset” with Russia; and pursue a Reagan-like military buildup at home. The Washington Monthly dubbed Romney’s foreign policy vision the “more enemies, fewer friends” doctrine, which is chillingly reminiscent of the world Obama inherited from Bus

Mitt Romney is facing a rising tidal wave of pressure to make public more tax returns — and that’s from his supporters.
The list of prominent Republicans and conservatives urging Romney to put out more than the two years of tax returns he has promised is continuing to grow each day. If he simply hands over, say, five to 10 years of returns, they argue, Romney can end the controversy and focus his campaign on the nation’s economic woes to defeat President Barack Obama.
Over the last few days, a number of prominent Republicans and conservatives - including Haley Barbour, George Will and Bill Kristol - have called on Romney to quickly release years worth of his returns, and more stepped forward with the same message Tuesday.
Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) became the latest Republican to urge Romney to put an end to the tax returns flap and release more information. Paul told POLITICO on Tuesday he thinks it would help the presumptive GOP nominee “politically,” adding that “in the scheme of things politically, you know, it looks like releasing tax returns is what the people want.”
Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Tuesday joined in the debate and called for more transparency in the presidential race.
“I’m a big believer that no matter who you are, or what office you’re running for, you should be as transparent as you can be with your tax returns and other aspects of your life so that people have the appropriate ability to judge your background and what have you,” he told reporters in Austin, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Perry, who has released his tax returns dating back to 1992, added,“I think anyone running for office, if they get asked within reason to give people background about what they have been doing, including tax returns, should do that. That’s my deal on it.”
And Republican consultant John Feehery weighed in, saying on Tuesday that Romney should share the tax returns now, in the doldrums of summer, and put the storyline to rest.“Yeah, and he might as well,” Feehery told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Tuesday.“Couple years, get it over with and start talking about your solutions.”
But in spite of the mounting calls for more disclosure, Romney continues to just say no. On Tuesday, the Republican candidate told the National Review’s Robert Costa he stands firmly by his decision to release two years of tax returns — and that’s it.
“In the political environment that exists today, the opposition research of the Obama campaign is looking for anything they can use to distract from the failure of the president to reignite our economy,” Romney told “The Corner.”“And I’m simply not enthusiastic about giving them hundreds or thousands of more pages to pick through, distort, and lie about.”
The sands have shifted. Now it is up to your side to deal with the phrase "You didn't build it". This is the latest political buzz. How do you claim Obama didn't say it when the lying video, audio and transcripts all says he did.

"President Obama "has not met for six months with the CEOs and others on his Jobs Council in part because he's simply been too busy," White House press secretary Jay Carney told Politico.

Said Carney: "There's no specific reason, except the president has obviously got a lot on his plate, but he continues to solicit and receive advice from numerous folks outside the administration about the economy about ideas that he can act on with Congress or administratively to help the economy grow and help create jobs."

He should use the tax return feeding frenzy by the "forward" crowd and demand the debate focus on Obama's major lack of transparency.
Oh, by the way, the IRS has already gone over and found nothing wrong with Romney's returns.
I wonder how many years worth of tax returns Mitt is demanding from his VP possibilities?

He happily turned over years worth to McCain to be VP. I wonder what's different now?
