And I hope to God that can be said about almost any issue.
Oh, this is gonna be fun. :-)
That’s funny. Carney was trying to hand-wave his way out of this last week, and Romney forced them to answer.
Barack Obama in 2008:
...any agreement with the Palestinian people must preserve Israel’s identity as a Jewish state, with secure, recognized and defensible borders. Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided...
“Its the view of this administration that the capital should be determined in final status negotiations between parties, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters Monday.”
Sounds like Obama is “wimping” out to me. Go Mitt.
Good for Romney. He flushed out the Obama Admin.
Hope he can now flush them down the toilet forever!
” stating it will be negotiated between Israel and Palestine.”
What a stoopid position! There will be no meaningful negotiations with the “palestinians.” Ever!
I hope U.S jews are paying attention and remember this in November.
This literally gives me chills. Does Dumbama know who he is messing with?
Obama forced to declare they are on the wrong side of the Jewish vote. This is great.
>> Our view is that that is a different position than this administration holds. Its the view of this administration that the capital should be determined in final status negotiations between parties, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters Monday.
Well, MY view is that your mommy should have named you Josh Waffle, not Josh Earnest.
Oh...Ah...Eh..the Obozo’s team on the defensive again?! I LIKEY!!
As is the case more than 80% of the time, those occupying the White House are wrong.
Which “parties” would those be, Josh?
The voting citizens of Israel have reached a dermination.
Just what are you proposing?
Will those who aren't on FR even hear about it? Can't think of a way for the MSM to spin it sufficiently in O's favor to even report it!
Here in the U.S., the federal head of state and government, the federal legislature, and the federal head of supreme court are domiciled in Washington, D.C. We consider Washington the national capital.
In Israel, the head of state, the head of government, the legislature and the supreme court are domiciled in Jerusalem. We consider Jerusalem...if not the capital, then what?
I bet Obama gets >50% of the Jewish vote.
Great find, jjoto.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
“Will those who aren’t on FR even hear about it? Can’t think of a way for the MSM to spin it sufficiently in O’s favor to even report it!”
The ZOA has a very effective direct mail directory.
I am beginning to think that Israel needs to make more bombs, no just for Iran, bit for Iran and the White House!
Honest to God, the guy is a nine year old. He can’t remember from one moment to the next what his last lie was.
If folks tied all his lies around his neck as neatly as this one was, he’d drown.
Obama should have ignored this issue. He will have to throw his conservative Jew supporters under the bus.
I am beginning to think that Israel needs to make more bombs, no just for Iran, but for Iran and the White House!
More trouble for B. Hussein Obama.
Apparently Romneys statement upset the Palestinians. Now the white-house feels the need to make a counter statement. More reason to learn about Obama’s hidden background and agenda. Why he was traveling to Pakistan.
Washington DC is not my Capital.
An enterprising reporter wanting some good copy should ask Bam “if the capital of Israel isn’t Jerusalem, then where, pray tell, is it?”. He’d lose his WH press pass, but it would be worth it.
0bama’s just throwing a bone to his terrorist friends, including the MB whom he helped seize control in Libya and Egypt.. Oh yes, and the Taliban in Afghanistan!
The CIA names Jeruselem as the capital on their world factbook site. Maybe the CIA is wrong.
Just signed the Jerusalem Declaration. Jerusalem was, is and always will be the UNDIVIDED CAPITAL of Israel.
They’ll hear about it if they pay attention at all. AP, Reuters, Wash Post, NY Times, foreign media, all the major networks free or cable . . . they’re all running the story.
Do a Google news search if you don’t believe me.
Our view is that that is a different position than this administration holds. Its the view of this administration that the capital should be determined in final status negotiations between parties, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters Monday.
Headline: Romney calls Washinton DC. capital of US.
What other nation on earth has had to have it’s capital
decided by others?
Accept where that nation decides to put it’s capital
or don’t recognize the nation at all.
Ams Israel Chai!
I bet Obama gets >50% of the Jewish vote.
I’ll bet Ronmey gets over 90% the ORTHODOX JEWSIH VOTE!
“Washington DC is not my Capital.”
Maybe not, but it takes your capital.
So does RJC. Got an email from them this morning asking if I like being ‘exploited’.
That still doesn’t answer the question. What is the capital of Israel TODAY? We know Romney’s answer and we don’t know Obama’s.
Don’t think I’d take that bet but would be more likely to put money down that he gets <65% which would be crushing in its own right.
Sadly, US Jews are not, for the most part, Zionists. The couldn’t care less what happens to Israel, and can be counted upon to vote for ‘Bam.
So speaketh the Islamic President.
The lefty chant in ‘68 was Power To The People!
They sure didn’t see the Internet coming, did they? Now that the people have the power to see who said what and disseminate that info, the left is not so happy about Power To The People!
This should be put on the White House blog a few dozen times.
Yeah we do: "Can't I just eat my waffle?"
Talk about a flip-flopper. I hope Team Romney is preparing video after video of Obama flip-flopping and umming his way through a speech.
