America's world diplomat. He understands relations all over the world and promotes peace, understanding and world health everywhere he goes. Romey doesn't have a clue.
Yet they have wandered the streets throwing rocks for 50+ years in their own country and were so respectful of education that they tore down the school buildings Israeli's built on the West Bank instead of using them for education. Sorry, I am not buying their victimhood.

LOL. So Bill doesn't hang out with construction workers? Don't they work hard? No, only doctors and College Professors. Yeah, sweating, hard working Palestinian professionals. Bill should produce a TV series. I can see it now.
Starring Achmed the dead terrorist.
Perhaps the hard working, smart ones know enough to immigrate to countries that appreciate their abilities.
Nice touch Bill added about Palestinians having their own country, which they don’t yet have, of course. Don’t think Romney’s aware of that, he still refers to the Soviet Union in the present.
"–Bill Clinton showing Mitt Romney how it’s done in Riyadh."
Clinton has an unfair advantage. Bill doesn't have to appeal to an ignorant base that is terrified of women, minorities and the educated.
Clinton regurgitation. Back in January of 2011 he said the same exact thing.
"He said Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad have done a remarkable job in the West Bank. “It is just an example of what would happen for the Palestinian people if they are given a chance to govern,” Clinton said. “Palestinians are a hard-working and an incredible community. They have done remarkably well outside their country. I have never met a poor Palestinian in the United States; every Palestinian I know is a college professor or a doctor.”
Is Bill getting Alzheimer's Disease? He's repeating himself again.
'Back in January of 2011 he said the same exact thing.'
Shame on Clinton. He took the same position more than once.
Romney doesn't have to worry about being accused that.
When something is true it is morally worth repeating to hold off the baseness of an opponentl. A number of years ago I went to a relatives graduation at Gonzaga University. The graduates from the engineering department were almost all Arab. Many Palestinians.
By the way, he repeats and does not change his opinion from day to day.
I wonder what Billy boy will make on his appearance at the dem convention. I bet the amount would stagger you. Any body know what his net worth is lately?
Just as recently as June, Bill Clinton was telling the Obama Campaign they needed to lay off the Bain attacks.
He flipped and flopped big time on that.
Now the big 24,000 dollar question is how much is Bill being paid to be an Obama supporter?
Well when the Republicans continue to repeat the old lies, then the old answers are correct. Mitt has no idea what his support of the settlements is doing to further the distanxce between Isreal and their neighbors and the time will come when Isreal has a real fight, even if they strike first. If you are the short stubby guy in the neighborhood, it might help to work with the bigger kids who physically outnumber you and control every side of you except the Med. To continually shove your boot up the a$$ of the Palestinians, a lot with US help in dollars, isn't going to help the end situation. Romney's only mention of teh Palestinians was an insult! RMoney needs to quit listening to the neo-cons as they have already cost the US 6,000 lives and trillions of dollars in their super power US policy. We don't need another war in which the rich get richer and the poor bury their dead sons and daughters.
I have read a bunch of comments and columns, and most recently heard Ryan Lizza yesterday on an otherwise very good Fresh Air interview, saying that Romney should not have been mocked in London for simply repeating the same facts that Britains had been complaining about for weeks - that is the problems with security, etc. I said the problem was not that he said what he did, it is that at the time he didn't finish up with something like, however I know in spite of all this they will work it out and will have a great Olympic celebration.
That is what makes the difference between Clinton and Romney. Clinton would automatically end with something positive about his hosts and Romney was too busy showing how superior he is. That's why Cameron immediately went to the difference between holding the event in one of the biggest and busiest cities in the world and holding it in the "middle of nowhere." He felt the arrogance from Mitt.
Watched Anderson Cooper talking to a CNN reporter about Mitt's adventure. AC of course had to get that old balance going. Asked reporter was Obama anymore forthcoming on his pre-election trip. The reporter said no he was as taciturn as Romney. In fact: Obama had 3 press conferences and took 26 questions. Romney had no press conferences and took 3 questions.
You see. Just the same. This fact had been out a couple of days and AC and his fellow "objective" reporter were unaware I guess.
"I'm nervous, but in my experience, there's always that last minute problem that comes into play and by the time the Olympics are over, nobody remembers it, they just remember the amazing event."
Anyone remember when Vancouver didn't have snow?
He could've spun something like that and the Brits would've loved him for it. He was trying to play up his experience, but instead he went for "I'm more competent than these guys" - no wonder London lambasted him. And worse, it shows he has no experience because my point is actually dead right - every games has a scandal, has a few last minute issues, and with few exceptions (a bomb going off in the stands or a luge racer getting into a fatal crash on the track), they don't tarnish the games. An experienced manager knows that problems crop up and you find ways to deal with it and that you can put faith in the people who lead teams to get the job done. Instead of coming up with an original position built upon experience, he parrots what the media is already saying. Well sheesh, this is the guy we want in the Oval Office.
Oh, the dressage thing is priceless. There's a pretty clear gap between "It's Ann's thing" and "I don't want to be seen as too upper class" (not that it's possible). Something along the lines of "It's Ann's thing but it makes her so happy to know that she's competing in the Olympics and I can't wait to share that moment with her." Tada - you're not saying you love dressage, you're saying you love your wife. In fact, you're still subtly implying you don't like it. Stupid idiot.
I found it fascinating he even insulted his wife. In order not to associate himself with dessage, he feigned ignorance about the event and wasn't going to attend. Nice guy.
He would fit in well at the Garden of Gesthsemane.
Mitt can't find the silver lining. He can't connect with people. I've been to friend's houses for dinner and the wife can't cook worth sh1t. You still clean your plate and tell her that she didn't need to go to so much trouble. If something isn't really bad, you ask if you could have just a little more.
Romney has the unfortunate tendency to think that any criticism he dishes out will be viewed as words from above. He doesn't take into consideration that there is a fine line between constructive criticism and insults. My wife insults me all the time. She goes ballistic if someone else does. We're family and she's very protective of family.
Mitt just lacks the ability to take into account other people's feelings. If your daughter is over-weight and wants to show you her new blouse, you tell her that the color really sets off her eyes. You don't tell her that the loose blouse doesn't make her look quite so fat.
It's the difference between having someone walk away feeling good about themselves and having them walk away feeling devastated.
Even accepting what you said sacred - Romney will never be the politician Clinton is. He'll never even be the human being Clinton is either.
The guy doesn't turn this stuff on and off. It's just who he is.
Mitt will never have that kind of thing going for him.
You mean the ability to do this?
"He'll never be the human being Clinton is either." That's rich. Is that Bill Clinton you're talking about? The one with the all the scruples of sewer rat?
Part of Romney's problem might be he's so used to being glad-handled in his upper class world that no one's ever actually criticized him for comments that might be below the belt. Who would have dared tell him? Apparently, not even his wife.
Amen, sacred. I've have loved to have loaned my kids money for college, but I didn't have any to do it with. I helped them get loans but I sure didn't have the ready cash to do it myself.
jmac, I think many of the rich and famous have that problem. They're surrounded by people dependent upon them for their paycheck and don't want to risk p1ss1ng them off. They tell them what they want to hear, laugh at their lame@ss jokes and make excuses for them when things go wrong.
If a person lives in a bubble, they shouldn't be surprised if it pops. Mitt and Ann live in a privileged world. Most of us don't. We can't just sell stocks that we don't own to pay for college. We don't have the option of loaning our kids money to pay for college if we don't have it.
That's the difference between people like the Romney's and people like us. Our family and friends are looking out for us when they give us advice. They're not worried about getting fired if they tell us we're going to do something stupid.
outsider, that's one of the reasons that I'm really looking forward to the debates. Mitt can't turn off who he is. He can't express his ideas (as if he actually had any) without coming off as awkward and out of touch. For all of Obama's faults, he could sit down with you at a backyard barbecue and make you think that he'd be a great neighbor. You'd expect Mitt to be glaring at the cook if the food wasn't up to his standards and making sarcastic comments about eating off of plastic plates.
It's all about the beer. Apple pie has been replaced by beer. Obama can slug one down. Romney can raise his pinky finger and ask for a diet 7-up - in a glass over rocks with lemon.
Romney will never be the politician Clinton is specifically because he'll never be the human being Clinton is. Just about every flaw that characterizes him comes from his inability to understand other people.
"Just about every flaw that characterizes him comes from his inability to understand other people."
There are terms for people who lack any real empathy for others. They're all quite shrill. Let's hope that no one is given a reason to write a book about Romney.
It's not only that. Clinton could be in your house and you'd wonder where the time went to. Mitt could be there and you'd be praying that he'd just get up and leave.
