Ageed, darrelJ. Many of us on the anti-interventionist right could not stomach the idea of more unnecessary ME wars. Some of Romney's foreign policy utterances made it seem that war with Iran was inevitable if he was elected. I think a large share of the blame for Romney's loss lies at the feet of the war-first neocons, whose advice Romney was following. Notice how he even retracted his prior foeign policy views in the final debate because he was advised that war was a losing issue.
