The Romney campaign did not offer an on-the-record response for the apparent discrepancy in message and position between Mr. Romney and his top foreign policy advisers. But they privately maintain there is no change in policy and point to the portion of the ABC News interview where he says that Iran should not have “the capacity to terrorize the world.”
They also said Stephanopoulos was wrong to say Obama's policy was the same as Romney's. Of course, Stephanopoulos wasn't the only one to make that "mistake." Mitt Romney did as well. Three different times.
