Mother Jones‘ DC bureau chief David Corn and Florida Republican strategist Sally Bradshaw joined host Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball to debate Mitt Romney’s claims that President Obama supports “appeasing” foreign enemies, particularly the Iranian regime. Bradshaw, a former senior advisor to Romney during his 2008 presidential run, said that Romney was right on the money, and that the Obama administration was guilty of “abandoning” Israel. Corn accused the Republican candidate of spouting “empty, debasing rhetoric” and noted that Obama’s foreign policy does not come anywhere close to appeasement (i.e., the death of Moammar Qaddafi and the increase of military presence in the Pacific).
