Mitt Romney went to Israel on his obligatory foreign policy tour. He said something in Israel that is dead on. It is about time some American leaders said it.
What did he say and what was he so right about?
Romney said Israel’s culture is something that helped make them successful.
Romney said it and the sound you heard was the sound of the ball being hit out of the park.
Unfortunately the Romney campaign has now walked those comments back some because the Palestinians are outraged.
The Palestinians? Really? Who gives two whoops in hell what they think?
Palestine? That is not a nation. It is a joke.
The so-called Palestinian Authority quickly took offense. They blamed the Israelis for the fact that the average income in the so-called Palestinian areas is half that of Israel.
A good look at the evidence would show the terrorists who run that little strip of nothing they call Palestine what the problem is.
Israel is a democracy. In Israel, they have the rule of law. Israel does not stone women who commit adultery. They do not hang homosexuals. Israel does not persecute minorities. Israel is referred to as a “Jewish” state but it has citizens who are Arabs, Christians and even Muslims. In Israel, so-called Muslim holy sites are protected, not destroyed.
Compare that to the so-called area of Palestine. There is no rule of law nor is there democracy. It is a theocracy. Christians are persecuted there. The religious sites of other faiths are destroyed or damaged.
Instead of trying to build their so-called state, all the Palestinians want to do is destroy Israel.
And who can forget 9/11? On 9/11 as most of the world reacted in horror to the attacks on the twin towers, the Palestinians were in the streets celebrating.
Mitt Romney was right. The culture of Israel helped Israel become an economic powerhouse in the region. Israel creates wealth because its culture encourages that.
The only negative out of all of this is the fact Romney’s spokesman said his remarks were “mischaracterized.”
No they weren’t.
He hit this one spot on. Romney is absolutely right and his campaign needs to step up to the plate, grow a pair and quit acting like they are afraid of their own shadow.
Romney is right. Don’t back off now.
Lynn Janis Hutchinson has a ax to grind with the Mormons. And this is untrue and false. The Mormons have no political agenda. PERIOD.
If Mitt Romney wants to win this election he's got to start showing some courage of conviction to say what is right. As a "moderate" he is too worried about political correctness. When will Romney realize that not only is he no longer the governor of far left Taxachusetts but the values and extreme views of the state that he governed do not reflect those of traditional Americans.
I'd like to stand up for somebody who I have not heard say anything all that great - until the other night: Ann Coulter.
She essentially said, the REAL battle we're in is not between the rich and everybody else, it is a battle between GOVERNMENT WORKERS and the rest of us.
The true Elites now are the GOVERNMENT workers and they are trying to control us to REMAIN prosperous and in charge; they crave power and desperately want to keep their jobs.
They'll do ANYTHING to keep their jobs.
So, you can say whatever you want about Israel and Palestine, or Chicago and Baptists and different races and genders and health care and birth control, and illegal immigrants and women and chicken, and the media, and voter fraud, and term limits and the Constitution, on and on and on.........but: Ann Coulter was right.
This battle is mostly about BIG GOVERNMENT elites and their desperation to keep their jobs.
We the People are all going to suffer further and some people will suffer tremendously, and all the children and grandchildren moving forward will pay the price: If we don't get Government WORKERS under control again, and effectively TAKE BACK our Government.
Romney will be one step in that complex puzzle. The Entire Congress will be another huge piece of the puzzle. All local government officials is another huge piece of the puzzle.
Getting enough people fired up to remain involved in putting key Conservative people in all those positions is the BIGGEST piece of that puzzle.
Decades ago people would tell little kids to save money in a piggy bank.
Moving forward now, people need to tell their kids to mark VOTING day on their calendars and see how many Conservatives they can find, running for election in their area.
The best explanation about Obama being president!
While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.
Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president. The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a 'Post Turtle''.
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what is a 'post turtle'.
The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'.
The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain:
"You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb person put him up there to begin with."
