Seems "Romney is making the case that the United States shouldn't disagree in public with Israel"

Still shambling, from London to Jerusalem

<...>

That, at least, was the thinking a week ago. Now, every fear that Romney was not quite ready to sit at the big kids' table has been confirmed, and his foreign excursion is increasingly looking like a fiasco. Jamelle Bouie noted yesterday, "If Mitt Romney were a Democrat, his behavior on this foreign trip would all but disqualify him from the presidency."

Agreed. The question at this point is whether the former one-term governor, the least experienced major-party nominee in more than 70 years, who apparently can't even make brief foreign visits to allies without embarrassing himself, is actually prepared to lead.

Incidentally, Romney's speech in Jerusalem was problematic, in and of itself. Zack Beauchamp flagged an interesting excerpt:

"We cannot stand silent as those who seek to undermine Israel voice their criticisms. And we certainly should not join in that criticism. Diplomatic distance in our public between our nations emboldens Israel's adversaries."

It certainly seems as if Romney is making the case that the United States shouldn't disagree in public with Israel -- ever.

3. That's pretty much what I got from his little speech.

And as far as I'm concerned both he and Israel can go pound sand...as an American tax payer I can disagree with Israeli policies as much as I want...or anybody else's policies for that matter!

When you take into consideration that most of Rmoney's advisors are the holdover Facists of the last Bush administration...it's not a big surprise that this asshat with the personality of a Ken doll can be made to say any and everything stupid!
