Days after telling Israelis that they deserve better treatment than they have had from the United States during Barack Obamas presidency, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney arrived in Israel on Saturday night for talks with Israeli leaders, a meeting with the Palestinian prime minister, and a fundraiser.
Just as candidate Obama did four years ago, challenger Romney is visiting Israel in good part to try to maximize support for his presidential campaign among American Jewish supporters. Sensitive bilateral issues will also be on the agenda, however, notably the shared US-Israel concern about how to thwart Irans nuclear drive.
Obama was a relatively unknown quantity to Israel at the time of his 2008 visit, but his Democratic Party has traditionally garnered the vast majority of US Jewish votes. Romney is a more familiar figure, but his Republican Party has found it difficult to change those US Jewish voting habits. Romney has promised that, if elected, he would visit Israel as his first overseas destination. Obama has not visited Israel as president.
A Gallup poll released Friday showed that American Jews support Obama over Romney by a margin of 68 to 25 percent. Thats a decline compared to the 78% support Obama won, according to exit polls, in the elections...

Thought it was just me and then I saw yer kitties...
You are a treat. You have no grasp of history and the struggle for freedom in Poland. None.
Romney is not the ideal candidate on this forum, but you are less than real on this forum. Are you paid by Soros, because your English skills aren’t that believeabvle.
You suck and so does Soros. I hope he has a toasty time in Hell.
I very much about Poland.
I very much care about Poland.
I care about Poland too!!!!!
Romney is visiting three close and traditional US allies that have been treated shoddily by Obama, and he’s visiting them to make the point that they will be treated as allies again if he becomes president.
Obama really treated Poland badly by cancelling the ABM system that was to be installed there,
And, now the POS Obama is trying to back away from some of his past actions, with the WH lying and claiming that Obama didn’t send the bust of Churchill to the British embassy, when in fact he did and the WH lie was flushed out for a change.
Romney is visiting the right nations and making a very good point on this trip.
Lol, you're as clueless and incoherent as other posters have pointed out, or even more so.
I think your time is up. Bye bye
You purposely want Obama to win, so he can purposely keep my family in poverty by destroying the economy and thereby keeping engineering jobs from opening up, so I can support my family with my Geotechnical engineering skills.
Did you come from behind, or under that rock?
Romney is a multimillionaire, a far cry from a billionaire but what's that matter to you? It's HIS money, HE EARNED IT. The horse thing is his wife's endeavor and part of her MS therapy.
Romney was asked a question about the buzz in the British press over problems with security preparations at the Olympics including the late firing of a firm hired to provide services. That's not "bashing," he answered honestly and forthrightly.
attacking Israel? And the planned visit to Poland too?
She doesn’t like Israel either.
“Good analyses.I pretty much agree with your realistic assessment.I might add that there seems to be no understanding of Sunni/Shia reality and a morphing of such things as suicide bombing over to Shia when none exists. Its like well just blame the Shia for everything the Sunnis do (Wahhabi) and keep buying oil. Not one Shia was involved on the attack on our country Iraq was in under control and people will tell you that Iraq had something to do with the attack on the US. It really is devoid of truth or recognition of the obvious.I grant you that Iran35 years ago siezed our embassy but they killed noone. Israel not only steals our state secrets with guys like Jonathan Pollard, who should have be executed. but Israel knowingly and willfully attacked the the USS Liberty in 1967 killing 31 and wounding 178 Americans!!! Why not bomb Israel now for that before we bomb Iran for not killing any of our embassy people before they let them go?? Seems like a double standard. But as far a Syria is concerned internal matter. Stay the hell out of it.”
For your leftist information - do you also knock Bill Maher’s wife who owns a lot of horses, and they just recently purchased a million dollar home in the Hamptoms. Hmmm? Inquiring minds want to know?
Of course not - and why not? Well, well, because.......because Bill Maher is a Marxist and golly gee- he earned his money doing what it is he does and you don’t extend that same courtesy to Mitt Romney - whose wife has horses.
I’m sick of this class warfare crap and all those who buy into it. None of the people who spew this crap ever knock or bash Hollywood for spending millions and millions on the luxuries of life. And, just what have these so-called celebrities contributed to society?
Take your rhetoric and class warfare elsewhere. You people make me sick.
So all the freepers who don't support Romney will never get another chance to get a republican elected because in 3 years the blacks and Hispanic vote will overtake any republican vote.
I have warned anti-Romney freepers that Obama will take down this web sight down in his second term.
They can't see the future, we are all headed down to the californiacation of the USA.
It's easy for people who live California to help obama by not suuporting Romney. But I'm from Wisconsin and in the dairy state, Romney is 1000 times better than Zero.
It will be the last chance for a non democrat to be President.
I completely agree with you.
Good point EXCEPT Mr. RomneyCARE IS A DEMOCRAT.
All the lies in the universe by Team Romney
do NOT make him conservative.
Nor has he been. EVER.
