Team Romney: We Do Support Two-State Solution

Source: TPM



Mitt Romney’s campaign is pushing back on controversial comments he made at a May fundraiser that were secretly taped. No, not those controversial comments. Romney is also under fire for a portion of the video in which he says he does not intend to pursue a two-state solution between Israel and Palestine.

The Romney campaign contends that the original clip of the video released Tuesday by Mother Jones was deliberately edited to omit a key element of Romney’s position. The campaign confirmed to TPM it believes the MidEast portion of the video is the only part that was selectively edited.

The Obama campaign charged that Romney’s comments suggest he would “walk away from a peace process.” The Romney campaign said he supports an eventual peace achieved by staunch support of Israel.

“You heard on the tapes released this week that it’s Mitt Romney who would walk away from the peace process,” Ben LaBolt, press secretary for the Obama campaign, said on MSNBC Wednesday.

Later in the afternoon, the Romney campaign shot back.

2. Prove it Mitt, release your tape of the event.

Oh, you mean you were too stupid to record your talk? Too bad, because at this point nobody except the mouth breather Faux News watchers believe a word you say.

3. Larry Tate

Remember on just about every episode of Bewitched, Darin's boss Larry Tate would hate the ad campaign until everyone loved Sam's "wacky" explanation? Old Larry would shamelessly reverse course and say how much he really did like it after all! This is getting FUCKING ABSURD! Who's running this thing?

I'd love to see the smoke pouring out of Karl Rove ear's over what an amateur disaster this whole thing has become.

4. Mitt, we have the google and we know how to use it 2

"I look at the Palestinians not wanting to see peace anyway, for political purposes, committed
to the destruction and elimination of Israel, and these thorny issues, and I say, 'There's just no
way,' " Romney told the supporters, who reportedly paid $50,000 each to attend.

"And so what you do is you say, 'You move things along the best way you can.' You hope for
some degree of stability, but you recognize that this is going to remain an unsolved problem."
