Skip to comments.Mitt Romney at fundraiser: ‘Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace’
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 worlds most notorious dictators will sit down and talk to him about their differences.

This tape is starting to sound better and better to normal Americans
great! NOW, i won’t have to hold my nose to vote...
They don’t recognize the legitimate existence of Israel as a nation. That’d seem to be a starting point for peace.
Once again, Romney ‘leaks’ reveal the truth.
Obama leaks? Clinging to guns and Bibles and he can do what he wants in his second term to undermine American defense.
Which does the MSM cover...?
Hmmm.....ANOTHER Truthism from Romney....would he only voice it during his campaign appearances and in debate.
You can’t win by disguising the truth in watered-down half attempts for the same reason that sugar-coating a turd won’t do anything.
OMG FREAK OUT AND PANIC!!!!
Wait, he said something else we were all thinking???
OMG he is going to be in SO MUCH TROUBLE now for saying the truth....
If the most dirt the media can find on Romney is that when in private groups, he talks like a conservative, then he’s in better shape than all of us thought!
Hey.....as a conservative, this gives me hope that Romney may have a clue after all. Instead of writing in Congressman Alan West, I may actually vote for him.
Go Romney damn it don’t worry about the Palestinian terrorist vote, shove all these quotes down Obama’s throat!
And now definitely ask for the tape of Obama saluting some terrorist and denouncing Israel to be released! The press is hiding that one.
Anyone peeing their panties out there over Romney dissing the entitlement state and the palestinians who have fostered the likes of Arafat, get over it and buck up.
No Kidding!! I am glad to find out he knows these things.
I hope he does not waver on them under media sliming
So if they start a riot over this will Obama arrest Romney?
They have to cover his pali remarks now, remember it is from the “super secret controversial damaging gaffe” tape lol
Is this guy more conservative then he is letting on? I mean first the tax/moocher comment. Now this speaking plainly and honestly about the Palestinians! I mean bro, if this is how you really feel.....stop being so damn PC. I wonder what else he says to people in private that is different from our perceptions of him?
What’s the big deal? It’s true.
What the presstitutes don't get is that this is a "base" election - whoever turns out their side wins. Nothing Romney has done to date will be as effective in turning out conservatives as these supposedly damaging leaks. The presstitutes are hung on their own petard!
“This is the same fundraiser as the 47% comment, apparently.”
Probably, however the fact that MSM and the left are so enraged surely proves that “the Truth really hurts sometimes”.
Heard on Fox today these are being released by Jimmy Carter’s grandson, angry over Romney dissing his grandpappy.
Are you going to let that idiot leftist disgrace of an ex president get in our way?? Hell no.
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.
This statement alone should get him elected!!!
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.
Who could have guessed the releasing party would have the same flawed genes as the guy he is upset about being dissed? LOL
Spot on - Go Mittens!
How refreshing to hear a politician speak 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.
“Whats the big deal? Its 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..
There he goes again, telling the truth.
You cannot have peace with a people who teach their children that one day they will kill all of you.
Closet Conservative? Or at least a Free Republic lurker...
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.
Exactly. I hope the MSM does more to help get the word out!
“We have war when at least one of the parties to a conflict wants something more than it wants peace.” Jeane Kirkpatrick
Ya know FRiend this does bother me the most about Mr. Romney. I mean c’mon man don’t be ashamed of the truth speak out loud for the rest of us to hear you!!! Can’t say how utterly thrilled I am to hear what his true feeling are. Wow. C’mon Mr. Romney if this is true you’re a better man than we thought
It is true. They want death to Israel, period.
Quote of the
day century? (((ping)))
” blamed President Obama for an extraordinarily naive perception that some of the worlds most notorious dictators will sit down and talk to him about their differences.”
They might sit down, but they’re not interested in solving differences.
At long last somebody has said it.........what we all knew to be true for a long long time..........
The “Palestinians” a hodgepodge of refugee Arabs expelled from their home countries by Jordan, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, are the trash people of the world, misfits wherever they may be. Their presence on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip is not enforced so much by the Israelis as by these countries from which they were expelled.
The are the human shield pushed forward agains Israeli, with wicked promises of becoming “respectable” in the Arabic community, if they manage to overcome and press back the Israelis. Of course, for people barely above the Stone Age, this is a suicide task, as there is no way they may EVER prevail against a united and determined Jewish majority in Israel. The “Palestinians” have their own fifth column within Israeli, with a large minority of naturalized and natural-born Muslim Arabic citizens inside their country, who largely oppose any steps the Knesset may take to assure the integrity of Israel’s national sovereignty.
Romney is absolutely correct in stating the “Palestinians” do not want any kind of peace accommodation with the Israelis, they want the Israelis GONE, marched into the sea, or fled elsewhere in the world, or simply annihilated. The “Palestinians” fairly DROOL at the prospect, and it colors every aspect of their daily lives. They teach their children this litany in the schools, they say it openly on the street, and they conspire in secrecy for various schemes to make that end possible.
Holy Crow!! Why doesn’t Romney just grab that video and run it as a campaign commmercial.
Truth burns the ears of the naïve and those who would keep them that way. Shame on Romney for daring to utter it.
Shhhh! Don't tell them!
Mitt better not back down or backpeddle on this!
What part is it of the truth that Ed O’Keefe doesn’t understand?
Truth is a controversial gaffe that ends election hopes these days
I was thinking the same thing, but now, after hearing more of what Romney said, I'm convinced his campaign was behind this leak. Who handled it along the way makes no difference, it's how it was initially leaked.
This is good, VERY good for Romney. He is saying what the majority of Americans think and believe.
Flak is heaviest when you’re over the target.
