"Mitt Romney is set to speak by telephone Friday with Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu."Honestly... after all that "Obama
doesn't have time" mess Mitt spewed? A phone call. You mean like the
ones the White House has weekly with Netanyahu's cabinet. And
what is Mitt going to tell him... I'm sure it isn't "wait until
after the election and we can do something then"... because when Obama said
that, well.... golly gee wiz beaver, that was headlines.Mitt
can't do anything. He doesn't yet have the mantle nor authority to
commit the US to anything at this point. This is nothing more than political
grandstanding for both of these two to look good for an election. No harm in
it... but really?
Romney and Netanyahu have known each other for over 35 years when they shared an
office in Boston. Bibi advises his old friend on the Middle East. A couple of
weeks ago when Bibi made an unscheduled visit to the U.S. there was a chorus of
GOP voices scolding Obama for not leaving the campaign trail to meet with him.
Now he's back again. Quite a coincidence, to say the least.This
time, he's beating a war drum just as Romney's amateurism in foreign
policy is coming unwrapped. Bibi was at the U.N. yesterday with a bomb
illustration that looked like it was right out of a Tom and Jerry cartoon. A
nineteenth century bomb, round and with a fuse on the top, Bibi holding it as he
used a red felt pen to illustrate where the red line must be as though he was on
Sesame Street instead of addressing the U.N.I wonder what Mitt and
Bibi are getting together to talk about.
mitt gets it and obama doesn't. obama choose, letterman, the view and other
more important people. mr. clueless obama is being shown what he is, an empty
obama has nothing to say
obama is too busy being eye candy for the view.
I didn't need the media to say it. These two trips may have nothing to do
with politics in the U.S. (ahem) but it certainly caught my attention how so
many Republicans jumped all over Obama for not hurrying back to DC to meet with
the Israeli PM. Had it been a trip scheduled long in advance, I might agree. But
a sudden visit in the final weeks before the election with Netanyahu
volunteering that his trip was in any way an attempt to inject himself into the
election, followed days later by a second visit?In the interest of
international protocol, I'll give him the benefit of a doubt but please
excuse me for being a wee bit suspicious.
Tough news day....there being nothing positive to say about the Romney campaign
even with all the spin in the world I guess this is about what to expect.Kind of a surprise though when other national news outlets are talking
about the "Fast and Pray for Mitt Day"
