Romney gaffs overseas revealing
The Kansas City Star
Perhaps Mitt Romney should have stayed home and watched the Olympics on TV and continued to read about the Middle East conflict in newspapers and magazines.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee would have made fewer foreign policy mistakes and not revealed how unprepared he is to represent the United States from the White House.
First he offended the British commenting last week that they seemed unprepared for the Olympics. It is unwise to be so critical about people in another country after they have gone all out for such a major world event.
Then Romney this week upset Palestinians saying the Israeli economy had outpaced the Palestinians’ because of the Israeli “culture.” Huh?
“It is a racist statement, and this man doesn’t realize that the Palestinian economy cannot reach its potential because there is an Israeli occupation,” said Saeb Erekat, a senior aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, told The Associated Press.
