It is really is a 1980’s foreign policy #oil

No one that I have seen picked up on this comment… It is a MAJOR gaffe, more so than the geography fail of thinking that Iran was landlocked (honestly… it’s called the Persian Gult for a reason),

But...

On Iran Mitt Romney said, “I would say that ships that carry Iranian oil can’t come into our ports”. But no Iranian oil has come to the U.S. for some time according to the Washington Post.

Guess when the last time Iranian oil came into the ports of the United States?

President Reagan banned all imports in 1987 and president Clinton banned all american participation in iranian petroleum development in 19-95.

 So, yes, Romney does have a 1980’s foreign policy.

  1. Just to show you that Paul Ryan knows just as much as Romney about the military, his comments about “horses and bayonets” today…

    Rep. Ryan told The Early Show host Norah O’Donnell,

    “To compare modern American battleships with bayonets, I just don’t understand that comparison. Look, we have to have a strong Navy to keep peace and prosperity.”

    The U.S. has decommissioned all our battleships. He doesn’t know a battleship from a frigate. There are no modern battleships. They are old technology…including the 19 inch black power guns.
