Say what you will about McCain overall, but he has more foreign policy chops in his right thumb than Romneybot has in his entire career.
 
2012-07-30 02:52:58 PM
Sorry, Johnny Mac. Romney meant what he said.
 
2012-07-30 02:56:43 PM
Thanks, Captain Obvious

Sorry McCain. The first line of your obituary is going to mention Sarah Palin, not your decades of service to this country.

That's gotta sting.

Fixed for accuracy

It's hilarious watching the GOP devour itself.

*** UPDATE: NBC's Garrett Haake, traveling with the campaign, reports from Gdansk, Poland, that senior Romney campaign strategist Stuart Stevens told reporters he takes issue with the story, calling it "completely manufactured," "sloppy," and even "invented."

He said the quote from Romney "revolves around an observation the governor has made in his book" and "mentioned in big speeches." The story, he claims, "never should have been written, was not handled responsibly and the Romney campaign was never called for comment. The economic situations for prosperity are interesting to study and important. "


"Okay, he might have written it. And said it in big speeches. But you never asked us to comment on our speech, which you shouldn't have written about anyway!"

Mitt has the worst PR people in the world when it comes to talking to the press. Did CJ have a woot canaw or something?

Government has nothing to do with culture?

"McCain noted he had not seen or heard Romney's remarks, but that didn't stop him from defending what Romney meant."

What's McCain's Fark handle?

McCain is so pathetic.

When faced with reality - deny it. Then call Lindsey Graham and order him to find some microphone and parrot whatever your rotting corpse just said.

And within a generation or two, the context in which American students will be learning about you will be "the guy who fought tooth and nail against the repeal of DADT". Even if you come around and publically regret your lack of support in a George Wallace style bid for a better legacy.

"I am sure that Gov. Romney was not talking about difference in cultures, or difference in anybody superior or inferior," said McCain... "What I'm sure Gov. Romney was talking was that the Israeli economy has grown and prospered in a dramatic fashion. And unfortunately, the Palestinians have not had that same economic development.

WTF? I can't tell if this is condescending or just lying.

McCain noted he had not seen or heard Romney's remarks, but that didn't stop him from defending what Romney meant. "I'm sure I know what he was saying, though," McCain continued.

Ah, there it is. It's just good, ol' McCain pandering.
 
2012-07-30 03:27:29 PM
It's pretty bad when your own "Chief foreign policy surrogate" has to publicly say "I'm sure the governor meant to say something less stunning stupid than the words that actually came out of his mouth"

"I am sure that Gov. Romney was not talking about difference in cultures, or difference in anybody superior or inferior," said McCain, a chief Romney foreign policy surrogate, today during a news conference after an event here with Sens. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC). "What I'm sure Gov. Romney was talking was that the Israeli economy has grown and prospered in a dramatic fashion. And unfortunately, the Palestinians have not had that same economic development"


Which is fine as far as it goes but then McCain goes off the rails into Republican fantasy land:
"And that goes to the leadership of the Palestinians. Everybody knows that Yasser Arafat was corrupt. And we also know that the Palestinian people have not been blessed with the kind of government that has lower regulations, less taxes, entrepreneurship, which have caused the Israeli economy to be one of the world's most successful.

No, the difference is really that the Israelis for the last twenty years have systematically undertaken to destroy Palestine economically and wipe out its middle class completely. Every time they stage "retailiatory" raids they seem to always hit civilian factories at the same time, either "accidentially" or by design.

It's almost as if they WANT Palestine to be utterly economically dependant on Israel, while ensuring the majority of its people stay in grinding poverty rather than standing on thier own two feet. But that's crazy since those conditions are a breeding ground for radicialism and the only reason Israel would do THAT is if the current government there needed a looming threat from the Palestinians to maintain thier own grip on power....but that's just crazy talk right?
 
2012-07-30 03:31:13 PM
And we also know that the Palestinian people have not been blessed with the kind of government that has lower regulations, less taxes, entrepreneurship

Ahh haha. Solution to Palestinian problems? Tax cuts.

Also it doesn't sound like he's making any distinction between the West Bank government and the Gaza Strip.

I wouldn't be surprised if he was unaware of such a distinction.

How shocking.

The truth is the Palestinian terror culture is a TOTAL FAILURE. They actively teach hate and racism to children and blame all of their problems on others. They are 100% corrupt from top to bottom and there is no justice anywhere to be found in the entire system. The poison of islam hasn't exactly done wonders for anyone's individual rights or freedoms, or human rights in general. The entire place is one giant bucket of FAIL that needs to pretty much do a 180 in every aspect of the entire culture if they ever expect to have any success beyond scamming international aid for basics and funding more islamic terrorist activities.

If you think that political islam, racism, embracing hate, islamic terrorism, and corruption are not the biggest parts of the problem in the West Bank and Gaza, then you aren't paying attention. Do you think that a bunch of Dutch that were on that same land would have made peace and turned it into something by now?

You can put a lot of cultures in there and they would do something besides what the Palestinians have done. I suppose if you filled it with Nigerians it would still be mostly a corrupt slum, but they probably would murder fewer innocents than the Pals.

I was wrong. Even a retarded seven year old has a more nuanced understanding of the world than you do.

Maybe Romney's not planning on selling the country, maybe he's planning on selling his CAMPAIGN. If he drives the price down, he'll get more takers. You know he's not a long term investment kind of guy. Think of how its value could depreciate in the next three months!
