Romney Shambles Review

We’re now looking forward to the speeches he’s going to make in Israel and Poland, two other very important destinations that are next on the itinerary.
Romney Top Aide, Eric Fehrnstrom, in an email from Boston while the candidate is in Israel, via Washington Post

If Israel has to take action on its own, in order to stop Iran from developing that capability, the governor would respect that decision . . .
When Iran's leaders deny the Holocaust or speak of wiping this nation off the map, only the naïve - or worse - will dismiss it as an excess of rhetoric.
Make no mistake: The ayatollahs in Tehran are testing our moral defenses. They want to know who will object, and who will look the other way.
~ Romney Senior National Security Aide Dan Senor, paraphrasing a speech the candidate will give in Israel later today

. . . The governor believes that at this point, the only thing that could focus and force the minds of the Iranian leadership on ending their nuclear weapons, their path to a nuclear weapons capability, is the belief that the alternative is far worse.
. . . This is not a platform for new Palestinian refugees down the road to return to Israel. If there is a Palestinian state, that should be the home for Palestinians wanting to return to this region.
More quotes from Dan Senor on CNN Political Ticker

Two stops after London that matter most. It’s right to say that he’s not courting those nations, he’s courting those children of those nations who now live in the United States — Poles in southwestern Pennsylvania, and Cleveland and Detroit and all the rest. In Israel, he’s courting not the Jewish vote in the country, maybe it will make a small difference in Florida, and that make a big difference, but the vast majority of American Jews are going to vote Democratic. Always have and as far as I can tell and always will. The great support for Israel right now, the energy is in the evangelical community, which is a part of the Republican base. So the trip to Israel is a way of firing up this enormously important, somewhat skeptical of Mitt Romney Republican base.
