Romney’s Racist Comments Leave the Palestinians Fuming

Monday, July 30, 2012

Poor Mitt. First he insulted the British, suggesting they weren’t prepared to host the Olympics. Next he flew on to Israel and promptly managed to offend more than 1.5 million Palestinians.

ABC News has the delicious details:

“Romney’s newest diplomatic fumble has insulted the Palestinians by suggesting that the discrepancy between the wealth of Israel and the Palestinians was due in part to their different cultures. A top Palestinian labeled the analysis racist.”

The National Journal was equally brutal:

“For any man who would be president there are unwritten rules of foreign diplomacy. Mitt Romney seems to have internalized some, while others apparently slipped out of the briefing book on his flight across the Atlantic to debut as a potential leader of the free world.”

The Washington Post said:

“For Mitt Romney, the episode seemed another misstep in an overseas trip that has brought home the difficulty of being a candidate abroad. So far, Romney has tried to follow an unwritten rule of American campaigning: don’t criticize the president on foreign soil. But he has struggled with another unwritten rule – one that applies to travel more generally. It is also a bad idea to criticize foreigners on foreign soil.”

Mitt Romney: wrong for America and wrong for the world.

  1. We can only hope the majority of American voters feel this way in November.

  2. DMason says:

    I thought George W. Bush was a moron but Romney is turning out to be even worse.

  3. Pechanga says:

    The Palestinians aren’t useful to Romney’s presidential dream.

    His focus is, apparently, on wealthy Israeli Jews willing to make contributions to his campaign. His campaign is it’s final days is blowing through spending millions each week. The Palestinians don’t have the deep pockets the Israeli Jews enjoy. Romney will feed his Israeli Jewish supporters whatever he thinks they want to hear.

  4. ajihani says:

    Romney is easily culturally threatened. He’s the most at home among Mormons and wealthy, white businessmen.

  5. How do you spell President Obama reelected in a landslide?

  6. Randy Arroyo says:

    Mitt’s Mormon magic underwear, garments intended to keep Mitt safe and warm, have had no affect on his habitual gaffes. His gaffes will be his ultimate undoing and I am loving it. Just keep yapping, Mitt. You’re infected with GOP Foot & Mouth Disease.

  7. Adirondacky says:

    Maybe Mitt will pass gas during the presidential debates? Not anything discreet but a tuba-worthy fart heard by the audience. I can’t wait!

  8. Bill Hussein O'Reilly says:

    Someone said Mitt Romney is Sarah Palin with a penis. I couldn’t agree more!

  9. feminazi says:

    No one with a thimble of commonsense would weigh in on a topic as sensitive as the Palestinians while visiting Israel. This is particularly true for a foreigner. I think we can all safely agree Mitt Romney lacks even the slightest amount of commonsense.
