The Associated Press is reporting Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential hopeful Willard Mitt Romney’s declared he would do “the opposite” of what President Barack Obama has done on Israel.
“I think, by and large, you can just look at the things the president has done and do the opposite,” Willard mewed when asked about Israel.
Well, OK Willard let’s look at what the President’s done for Israel and apply your now official stance of doing the opposite.
Late in 2009, President Obama transferred 55 bunker-buster 5,000 pound bombs to Israel putting it in the perfect position to take out Iran’s buried nuclear facilities; or perhaps to target Hezbollah’s buried bunkers in Lebanon at its earliest convenience (https://thelibertytree.wordpress.com/2011/09/26/obama-gave-israel-bunker-busters/ ).
Since Willard’s living in “Oppositeland” he’d have done what President Bush did and refuse to give Israel the arms it needs to defend itself.
In September the President led the charge in the United Nations (UN) to deny the creation of a Palestinian state; in Romney’s alternate reality he would’ve then backed the creation of a Palestinian state.
Under President Clinton aid to Israel was $4,132,000,000 but under the Bush administration aid to Israel steadily declined to $2,424,000,000; under President Obama aid to Israel is on the rise once again $2,550,000,000 in 2009 and $2,770,000,000 in 2010 with continued increase expected through FY 12 – https://thelibertytree.wordpress.com/2011/10/20/president-obama%E2%80%99s-record-israel/ – Romney would no doubt cut spending to Israel since President Obama increased it, because he’d “look at the things the president has done and do the opposite”.
Once again Willard proves he’s either looking for his village or he’s an abject liar, or he’s an abject liar looking for his village; to make statements like he did today in opposition to the President’s very strong and supportive stance of Israel is beyond reason.
