Forceful speech. Shames Obama by just telling the truth. Looks like Obozo just came out with a 'we will strike Iran" comment..oh, sure.

Our current resident of the WH has never given a speech like this for Israel. He just can’t connect to “Freedom”.

Obama has no credibility. He can talk a BIG talk but only walks on the golf course. I cannot even believe he is still in the running for the Presidency this November.Hopefully a President Romney will surprise us and be a strong advocate for America and our Allies. Praying for America to rise from the ashes of the Obama tenure.

Look for Romney’s speech to the VFW...Outstanding, and exactly how a President should sound.

Am I confused or is it a big deal that he clearly called Jerusalem the capitol of Israel?

This speech that Romney gave in Israel was one of the strongest speeches I’ve heard given by any politician in recent years. I actually stopped and sat down and listened, very strong on defense of Israel and calling Iran the no. 1 sponsor of terror in the world, Iran cannot be allowed to become nuclear, pretty strong stuff. Not initially a Romney supporter but he’s impressed me with that speech.

The Zero admin refuses to answer the question of what city is is the capitol of Israel. They just say their position “hasn’t changed”. Not even Carney will answer the question when asked multiple times and got obviously flustered that the “press” wouldn’t let it go.

He totally impressed me also, and I definitely was not an original Romneybot. I will say, I believe that he put this election in the bag.

Has Romney done anything to ask for Sarah’s endorsement yet? It it true he won’t allow her to hold any VIP credentials at the convention? And no speech?

He does need my vote,, right?

Once the convention is over, with or without her attending ( which I hope she does) she will come out strong in support of his becoming president.

Sarah appears to be one of those who still believe in doing things the right way.

She wasn’t a rival in the debates so I consider her different than Pawlenty, Newt, etc, so don’t expect her to do anything until the official nomination process is concluded.

Uh..’doing things the right way?”..ok, technically,yes...

But she hasn’t even “unofficially” recognized him...she is on TV a lot and no comments about how Romney who IS now our nominee would be good for the country or anything positive about him. Its very puzzling to me.

While the Dems are trying to define the narrative about our nominee...no counter to that from Palin...”technicaaly correct, “ but we need all the help we can get NOW for this nominee, and for her to say anything positive ...that is virtually free airtime going against the Dems.

there have been a lot of Republicans who weren’t in the debates who have come out to support Romney, not buying this “technical, doing the right thing argument”.

I will now take the flaming from everyone who adores Palin.

Romney is an degenerate coward who comes from a family that doesn't serve in the military.

He's a disgusting hypocrite.

Thanks for posting Mr. Romney’s speech in Israel. I thought it was very powerful, as was his speech before the VFW.

I don't think many of our country's Founding Fathers served in the military. So, would you consider them degenerate cowards?

Google George Washington, he served admirably.

Then look at the con man cultist who would assume the same office.

You're comparing MYTH ROMNEY to the Founders?

The Founders where all men of conviction, honor, and high moral character who strongly believed that the franchise should be strictly limited.

That's why there wasn't a right to vote put into the Constitution.

The Founders especially didn't want women, the poor, and those under 21 voting.

Those are the groups that are easily deceived by slick snake oil salesman like the Mormon Bishop and Hussein Obama.

Amending the Constitution to give them the vote is the reason we are now enslaved by the Washingtonians.

All this election is about is which group of degenerate con men, liars, and thieves from DC get to control and redistribute the tax dollars extorted by the IRS from the American people.

Romney believes the option of a U.S. attack should also be "on the table."

This degenerate coward who comes from a long family tradition of avoiding service in the military in all wars including WWI and WWII is doing a pretty good job of offering up other American kids lives, (just not his kids), and fooling a lot of simpletons back here in the states with his tough talk .

Al Queda already has nukes, via the "government" in Pakistan.

An Israeli attack against Iran will be pointless and unsuccessful from the perspective of stopping their nuclear program, the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists is more effective.

Any US attack ordered by the KOLOBIAN against Iran will most likely be responded to by the Persians targeting US civilians here and abroad in a way that could potentially make 9/11 look like a picnic.

But it's all good, MYTH ROMNEY, he's a real tough guy.

Well..I guess we will just let Obama in for four more years and go with your foreign policy which sounds just like Ron Paul’s...then we can wait for Iran to nuke us so hard that “it will make 9-11 look like a picnic.”

The realities of the election this year is NOT who is the best..it is the “better” of two that we may not be thrilled with, and one of them is guaranteed to totally ruin our country.

But you go ahead and tell me what a degenerate Romney is, I’m sure then I will sit out the election, convinced there is no point to anything..oh, wait sounds like you are a nihilist, that’s fun.

Gadzooks! The problem with folks like you, Rome2000, is you cannot face reality. You didn't when McCain ran. You set out and look what we got—

It would be easy to take on each point you claim above and show how meaningless or wrong they are but it would be pointless as one-track minds like your's are always right.

If you are so damn sure Romney is worse than Obama, then by all means, go to Democrat Underground and agree with them.

McCain was not my first or even forth choice in 2008, but I supported and voted for him in the hope of keep Obama out of the White House. You didn't and how has that hope and change worked out from you?

Mitt is also not my first or even forth choice in 2012, but I shall support and vote for him in the hope of getting Obama out of the White House.

I fear the United States cannot survive another four years of Obamarule.... Do you?

This election is about surviving to fight another day.

But there are many here on FR who would have chosen not to retreat the army from Dunkirk...because after all, they must be 338,000 lousy soldiers to have been beaten so soundly by the Wehrmacht, just let them fall and blow the whole up, right? We can build a new army from the ashes without those losers, right?

It’s survivable to lose battles if you preserve your strength and option to fight again, it is not acceptable to intentionally hand your enemy, who wants to destroy you, his total victory.

I respect your opinion so no flames from me.

I still think when game time .comes she will be all in.

I think she doesn’t want the story to be about her, or in any way detract from his VP nomination which should happen before the convention.
