Yep, wars go according to plan, just look at Iraq and Afghanistan.
What price will Romney want US grunts to pay ?
Is Romney another Bush?

Rich daddy - Check

Ivy League education - Check

Arrested during his youth - Check
Mitt Romney's 1981 arrest and 4 other times he lost his cool

Let's deregulate business and let them do whatever the hell they want - Check

Protect tax cuts for the richest Americans - Check

Advocates military action against a country in the Middle East that poses no "Clear and Present" danger to the national security of the United States - Check

Obama has threatened Iran.
Afghanistan and much of the rest of the Middle East has been taken over by radical Islam under Obama. See Islamic Brotherhood.
If anything, look for a war from Obama with Iran as an October surprise.

Default Is Romney another Bush ?

Interesting...

Romney has shown that he lets underlings make the decisions for him. Just like Bush allowed Cheney to take the lead time after time.

I always thought that Republicans used the names Bush, Powell, Rumsfeld to get Cheney elected. They had good PR associations with the public at the time - especially Powell. Same with the name Bush, nobody was concerned that Dubya was born into a bubble of privilege (like Romney), and the nut had fallen far from the tree. Cheney as frontman would have been too repulsive to the public, but they needed a mastermind.
Bush was "just folks" and people wanted to have "a beer" with him, but only a "laxative" with Cheney.
I wouldn't doubt that the reputation of Colin Powell (who later bailed) was their main asset, and he was there only for that purpose.
