Mind you, these are the same Israeli Jews who Romney was crowing about just a few days ago during his visit to Israel. You’ll recall that during the trip, after embarrassing himself in London, Romney praised what he claimed was Jews’ innate ability to succeed at business (he apparently also liked their horns).
And now, after all that gushing, Romney takes a potshot at Israel.
And, it’s only days after Romney comes out with an ad accusing President Obama of not being a true friend of Israel. Romney then Sista Souljah’s Israel in order to win over conservatives in America, who supposedly like Israel.
Is this guy on meds or something? Because this is downright erratic behavior.
And don’t let anyone claim that Romney didn’t just accuse Israel Jews of being socialists, aka communists, aka Soviets. He tied Israel to his standard attack on President Obama in which he insinuates that the President is a socialist, aka a communist, aka a Soviet. From Buzzfeed:
At a fundraiser today in Chicago — barely a week after visiting the Holy Land — Romney took a shot at the Israeli Kibbutz movement, a product of the early socialist zionist movement and integral to the story of the founding of the State of Israel.
“It’s individuals and their entrepreneurship which have driven America,” Romney said. “What America is not a collective where we all work in a Kibbutz or we all in some little entity, instead it’s individuals pursuing their dreams and building successful enterprises which employ others and they become inspired as they see what has happened in the place they work and go off and start their own enterprises.”
Yeah, I mean what do those commie Israelis know about people pursuing their dreams?
But again, what’s even odder is that Romney was just there. He was just criticizing President Obama for not being friend enough to Israel. And now Romney’s taking potshots at Israel, saying they’re just like Obama in not understanding how freedom enterprise, how America, how freedom works.
So Israel doesn’t understand freedom, Mitt?
This will of course tick off Israel – bringing Romney’s disastrous foreign trip to a perfect trifecta of ruined relations.
Either the man isn’t entirely well, or he’s intentionally alienating all of America’s top allies because of some bizarre notion that it will help him in the election. It’s not entirely clearly how attacking Israel and the UK helps Romney win votes at home. If anything, the erratic and contradictory nature of the attack makes one wonder whether Romney isn’t completely all there.
What if his tax returns somehow aren’t hiding a lack of payment of taxes, but rather hiding some kind of health problem?
