This is the same fundraiser as the 47% comment, apparently.

Romney spoke of "the Palestinians" as a united bloc of one mindset, and he said: "I look at the Palestinians not wanting to see peace anyway, for political purposes, committed to the destruction and elimination of Israel, and these thorny issues, and I say there's just no way."

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.

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.

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?

The more I hear, the more I like!

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!

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.

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.

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

Reminds me of something I recently read:

“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..

” 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.”

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

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.

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.
