Response to Segami (Original post)

10. Thanks, Segami, for bringing Sarah Jones' article

over from politicusUSA and presenting it so rivetingly.

This is an Important Reminder of who mitt is..no matter how he's trying to act like Pres Obama on this issue, now..

It was Mitt Romney who told rich supporters that he would do nothing about the Middle East because he didn’t think peace was possible. His big plan, he told them, was to kick the can down the field. “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.” He continued, “You hope for some degree of stability, but you recognize that this is going to remain an unsolved problem… and we kick the ball down the field and hope that ultimately, somehow, something will happen and resolve it.”


Whether Netanyahu started showing respect for Obama because, unlike most conservatives, he can read polls or whether Obama’s cold shoulder finally sank in as Bibi’s only option given Romney’s plunge, or some combination of the two — the end result is Obama got what he wanted and what was best for the United States.
