    Romney has been repeating this but you have to see the context. His argument is that Syria is the conduit for Iranian arms shipments to Gaza, simply shipping them down the east Mediterranean coastline.

    Unfortunately for him, he has absorbed the line so well that he misses out all of the rather dubious arguments about arms -  Hamas is turning to Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Qatar for funding and away from Iran and Syria. However the full version fits into his line of Iran being the sponsor of terrorism against Israel.

    In other words, it is a dog whistle for the pro-Israel lobby but he simply managed to screw it up.

    Why doesn't Mitt Romney carry an iPhone? Because he has an Ann Droid.
