New video shows Romney saying Palestinians don't want peace

Source: Reuters

(Reuters) - Republican Mitt Romney's reeling campaign hit more trouble on Tuesday after new video surfaced showing him saying that Palestinians do not want peace and a resolution of their conflict with Israel was not possible.

"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 said in the secretly recorded video of a closed-door May fundraiser in Florida.

The images are the second from a video of the event that was published by liberal magazine Mother Jones. Romney was already in damage control from the first, which showed him describing President Barack Obama's supporters as victims who are too dependent on government and unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives.

Romney held a Monday night news conference in California to try to contain the damage from the video but did not back away from the remarks about Obama supporters, which raised fresh questions about the competence and direction of his campaign to boot Obama from the White House.

9. How can he possibly hope to be seen as an honest, fair broker in the ME

after this?

This won't hurt him with some percentage of voters, but it will kill him with people who consider the ME an important region in the overall scheme of things.

12. Editorial boards should deny their endorsement based on this horrible statement.

John Kerry was right. Romney would be a disaster for international relations.

7. Quick, Romney, Release Your 2011 Tax Return

Do something, anything, to change the subject. Or are you too dumb to think of something so obvious.

Uninformed talk about dirty suitcase bombs being used for blackmail and tacitly green lighting Israel's expansion of settlements provides a ripe opportunity to blast some truly weird views of people. That makes this tax return time -- get it released today.

10. It is the Israeli Settlers who don't want peace.

They will not be happy until all of Palestine is "ethically cleansed" to give themselves more Lebensraum.

16. I'm constantly impresssed with what a poor politician he is.

The viewpoint itself is incindiary and foolish, but his lack of restraint in saying things like thisshows a lack of intelligence that just boggles the mind.
