Romney: Consult The Lawyers!

Exclusive: Hizzoner Strikes Back

Today the Giuliani campaign plans to launch an attack on Mitt Romney‘s comment during the CNBC debate last night that he would check with White House lawyers before launching a preemptive attack on Iran without congressional authorization. “You sit down with your attorneys and tell you [what] you have to do,” Romney said, “but obviously the president of the United States has to do what’s in the best interest of the United States to protect us against a potential threat.”

And here it is.

From a Giuliani Campaign press release:

  • “Going to war is the most serious decision a president can make. Lawyers should not debate while our national security is on the line. In these momentous decisions, we need leadership, not litigation.”– Admiral Robert J. Natter, Ret., former Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Atlantic Fleet, and Senior Military Advisor, Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee
  • ROMNEY’S “LAWYERS TEST” FOR NATIONAL SECURITY

    Romney Said As President, You Would “Sit Down With Your Attorneys” To Discuss Whether Congressional Authorization Needed To Attack Iran. CHRIS MATTHEWS: “Governor Romney, that raises the question, if you were president of the United States, would you need to go to Congress to get authorization to take military action against Iran’s nuclear facilities?” ROMNEY: “You sit down with your attorneys and tell you want you have to do, but obviously the president of the United States has to do what’s in the best interest of the United States to protect us against a potential threat. The president did that as he was planning on moving into Iraq and received the authorization of Congress…” MATTHEWS: “Did he need it?” ROMNEY: “You know, we’re going to let the lawyers sort out what he needed to do and what he didn’t need to do. But, certainly, what you want to do is to have the agreement of all the people — leadership of our government as well as our friends around the world where those circumstances are available.” (Mitt Romney, Republican Presidential Candidate’s Debate, Dearborn, MI, 10/9/07)

    SOUND FAMILIAR? ANOTHER MASSACHUSETTS POLITICIAN ALSO WANTED A NATIONAL SECURITY TEST …

    In 2004, Democratic Massachusetts Senator John Kerry Said America Must Pass “Global Test” Before Defending Itself. SEN. JOHN KERRY: “No president, though all of American history, has ever ceded, and nor would I, the right to preempt in any way necessary to protect the United States of America. But if and when you do it, Jim, you have to do it in a way that passes the test, that passes the global test where your countrymen, your people understand fully why you’re doing what you’re doing and you can prove to the world that you did it for legitimate reasons.” (Sen. John Kerry, First Presidential Debate, Miami, FL, 9/30/04)

The GLOVES are OFF………..

A MAJOR GAFFE by Romney.

Why would any American voter consider Mitt Romney for Commander in Chief?

    Stop taking Romney’s response out of context. If you read the question carefully, Romney was correct, technically at the very least. The question asked if he would seek authorization from Congress. He also completed his answer with a “…but he would do what’s best for the country….” follow up. You’re all fullofcrap!

    Sorry Dan it is not out of context. You can see the quote directly form the Mittsters lips.

    How do you spell INDECISIVE.

    Oh yeah, don’t call me names again or your comment will be deleted and you will be banned.
