Republican Mitt Romney’s reeling campaign hit more trouble on Tuesday after new video surfaced showing him saying that Palestinians do not want peace and a resolution of their conflict with Israel was not possible.
“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,” Romney said in the secretly recorded video of a closed-door May fundraiser in Florida.
Bill Clinton pursued the peace process relentlessly, and during his last few months there was a suicide bombing in Jerusalem just about every other day. Lefties love it when they see Jews getting dismembered by Palestinian children wearing nail bombs laced with rat poison.
The images are the second from a video of the event that was published by liberal magazine Mother Jones. Romney was already in damage control from the first, which showed him describing President Barack Obama’s supporters as victims who are too dependent on government and unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives.
Has anything more accurate ever been said during a presidential campaign?
