    Romney world tour ends

    Didnt see a post about his visits outside London, so lets check the reactions and results:

    As Romney left the site of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw and walked toward his motorcade parked in Pilsudski Square, reporters began shouting questions from the line where campaign staffers had told them to stay behind, prompting traveling press secretary Rick Gorka to tell a group of reporters to "kiss my a**" and "shove it."

    Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney attacked President Barack Obama’s administration this week for abandoning Poland and the Czech Republic by altering plans for an American missile defense system in Europe.
    But the Slovak foreign minister, in Washington this week for meetings with U.S. officials, said Thursday that Europe has fully embraced the new approach to missile defense and said Mr. Romney was dredging up settled debates.
    “People have moved on,” said Miroslav Lajcak, the minister of foreign affairs and deputy prime minister, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. “We are in a different situation now. We are discussing a different project. I see no reason to revisit discussions from three years back.”

    Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is calling a visit to Israel by U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney as "kissing the foot" of the Jewish state to boost his bid for the White House.Ahmadinejad did not specifically name Romney, but his comments were an unmistakable jab at the Republican contender's stop this week in Israel. Romney strongly backed Israel's drive to stop Iran from possibly seeking nuclear weapons. Tehran denies the claims.
    Ahmadinejad questioned why Romney would make "concessions to get some pennies for (his) campaign?"

    The political turning point of Mitt Romney’s trip abroad to establish his foreign policy credentials may not be his pre-Olympic grand gaffe in London after all. It may be the following observation, which the likely GOP candidate made in Jerusalem on Monday:...

    The comment was met with instantaneous outrage. Saeb Erekat, a senior aide to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, told the Associated Press: “It is a racist statement and this man doesn't realize that the Palestinian economy cannot reach its potential because there is an Israeli occupation. It seems to me this man lacks information, knowledge, vision and understanding of this region and its people."Erekat’s sentiments were immediately absorbed and repackaged in slightly altered form by liberal media outlets great (The New York Times) and small (MSNBC host Cenk Uygur, blogging at the Huffington Post). The latter went out of his way to misrepresent Romney’s statement as the “Palestinians don't have as high a GDP per capita as Israelis do because their culture is not as good as Jewish culture.” The value judgment he adds is purely inferential, but his conclusion—that Romney’s comments were “deeply racist”—is just plain wrong. As James Taranto points out...

    Last link has the comment in which sent off the Palestinian Aide, didnt want to start quoting quotes withing quotes. Personally, not overly interested in the Palenstinian and Iran reaction to Romney's tour. We knew Mitt wasnt looking to make friends with those that we arent on the best of terms with. That being said, its damn amusing watching him blunder with allies. As expected, Obama campaign is jumping head over heels with these results.
    Anyone recall the last time a Republican went into an election doing this poorly with foreign policy?

    Romney fared as well as expected in Europe where ODS is larger even than America as he did when speaking at the NAACP. Said the Olympics where fine? He's an idiot for not seeing all the problems the British and world media had been stating for weeks. A non-answer, he can't make a decision. Putting aside Obama has the same position as Romney, but Ahmadinejad somehow being tried the be spun against Romney? Along with the AP and NPR jump on a Palestinian source naming Romney a racist and bigot, as the linked article states is "just plain wrong".

    The guy with the Poland comment was a pretty big gaffe and if Poland doesn't accept hais apology fire him...or do so anyway. Whats our politicians deal with Poland recently?

    Missle defense was a non-starter and mistake. Instead of Bush's 10 missles to target rogue states missles Slovokia and Western Europe like Obama's thousands to take on any from rogue states...or Russian, Chinese, and whoever else...a lot more. Especially if the missle defense system isn't on their land and make them a target and are based on USA Navy ships.
