The list of questions we must each ask ourselves before we vote in November is virtually unending. I have at least a dozen concerns and I'm having a wearisome time prioritizing them. Most certainly, extending the wars in the Mideast is near the top of the list. It's bad enough that the present administration hasn't ended our involvement there, a change of presidents could be even more disastrous.
Mitt Romney is very apt to follow a harder line of combativeness in that region in order to (1) support the policies of his long time friend, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and (2) to appease the powerful Jewish lobby in the United States, trying to filch a substantial portion of the Jewish vote away from Obama.
