The Wall Street Journal Headline: "Romney Talks Tough" (The Wall Street Journal, 7/29/12)

  • Mitt Romney Pledged "A Tougher Approach To Iran's Nuclear Ambition" And Promised To Stand Behind Israel's Right To Defend Itself. "Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney signaled a tougher approach to Iran's nuclear ambitions, telling Israelis on Sunday that 'no option should be excluded,' including the use of military force. Keeping Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons should be America's 'highest national security priority,' Mr. Romney said in a speech set against the backdrop of Jerusalem's Old City. 'We recognize Israel's right to defend itself, and that it is right for America to stand with you.'" (Sara Murray, "Romney Talks Tough," The Wall Street Journal, 7/29/12)

Mitt Romney "Drew A Standing Ovation" As He "Referred Pointedly To Jerusalem As 'The Capital Of Israel.'" "He also referred pointedly to Jerusalem as 'the capital of Israel,' something Obama administration officials are loath to do, because Palestinians also imagine the city as the future capital of their hoped-for state. The line drew a standing ovation from some in the crowd and, later, an echo from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who underscored, 'Jerusalem will always be the capital of Israel.'"

'We have to be honest and say that all the sanctions and diplomacy so far have not set back the Iranian program by one iota.'" (Jodi Rudoren and Ashley Parker, "Romney Backs Israeli Stance On Threat Of Nuclear Iran," The New York Times, 7/29/12)
