I have been saying for a while that Mitt Romney’s campaign wants to run away from Iraq as fast as possible. Well, he said it again, according to Green Mountain Politics. Except this time, he said that he wants to withdraw if Patreaus says that our plan is succeeding.

That is shocking. Green Mountain points out the obvious follow up:

Mitt Romney: If the surge is working, let’s get the hell out.

Huh?

GreenMountainPolitics1 follow-up question for Mr. Romney: What if the surge isn’t working?

Doesn’t this put Mitt Romney to the left of Hillary Clinton, at least?

Hasn’t Romney joined Ron Paul, Chuck Hagel, and Dennis Kucinich as the peace candidates?

I have my own follow up. Rep James. Clyburn (D-SC) thought that success in Iraq would be "a real big problem" for the Democrats. Does Romney agree? Clyburn’s problem was that would mean that the Democrats would have to support staying in Iraq. Has Romney found a way out of Clyburn’s problem?

Did you see that he had high praise for Hezbollah’s ‘business’ plan?

I’ve said it before, if Republicans nominate Romney, we deserve Hillary.
