Mitt Romney at fundraiser: ‘Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace’
Washington Post ^ | September 18 | Ed O'Keefe

Posted on 09/18/2012 7:04:36 AM PDT by PghBaldy

Mitt Romney told a private audience of campaign donors in May that the Middle East peace process is “an unsolved problem” and likely unattainable because the Palestinian people have no interest in establishing peace with Israel. The Republican presidential candidate also blamed President Obama for “an extraordinarily naive perception” that some of the world’s most notorious dictators will sit down and talk to him about their differences.

Damn, the Obama and DNCp folks are doing us a favor here. I’d have never heard of these fine comments without them.

Kudos Obama, and the DNCp. I take it back. You have done at least one thing right. Spreading Romney truths is a great move for the Republicans.

Keep it up nimnals.

A politician tells the truth about the last 10 years or more in the Middle East and the MSM throws a hissy fit.

Romney is 100% right about this.

Nothing wrong with the TRUTH. Except for the socialist, hate-America, racist, lib-dems; they run like cockroaches they are, from the Truth.

The Fakestinians have no interest in peace is correct. Looks like Rommney is smarter than we thought.

What a thing to say about those nice people who constantly launch rockets into Israel.

Reminds me of something I recently read:

During times of universal deceit, speaking the truth becomes a revolutionary act.

“What’s the big deal? It’s true.”

Exactly. Remember when Clinton got Arafat about 95% of what he wanted..... and Arafat turned it down.

No Nobel Peace Prize for Clinton, no Middle East peace, nothing. And then he gets to watch Obama receive one just because... bwhaha..

GASP! NO! he stated the obvious!!!

How dare he put all those stated department peace negotiators out of business! (/s)

(remember when Reagan removed job security for the “perpetual negotiators” during the USSR days?)

Too bad those democrats worried about israel are stuck on stupid.

They might sit down, but they’re not interested in solving differences.
