Name that (former) National Security Advisor
From Bloomberg. Name that former national security advisor:
A former Democratic national security adviser assailed Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney for lacking a grasp of foreign policy and said the former Massachusetts governor would return the U.S. to the policies of George W. Bush.
The man is Zbigniew Brzezinski, who worked for Jimmy Carter. That he trots out the left’s most derangement-inducing front man, George W. Bush, is not exactly an original lefty tactic.
While Carter’s domestic policy was an American disaster, it’s easy to forget that his foreign policy and security failures added to Carter’s failure to win a second term. Think Soviets in Afghanistan or even worse, the Iranian takeover and year-plus long hostage scenario at the U.S. Embassy.
So in addition to apparently serving as a political hack, does Brzezinski have any credibility on slamming Romney’s foreign and security policies?
If Zeb had instead said Mr. Romney would return the U.S. to the policies of Jimmy Carter, that would have been a put down worth remembering.
