Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney visited Israel’s Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum while on a trip to Israel in 2007, The Times of Israel established Tuesday. He also visited the rocket-battered Gaza town of Sderot and surrounding area, during his 2011 trip to the country, a Romney campaign source said. After an inquiry from The Times of Israel, the Republican Jewish Coalition confirmed the Yad Vashem visit, and provided photographs. Romney toured the exhibit, and participated in a memorial ceremony. (Snip) Asked why the Republican candidate chose not to mention his own Yad Vashem visit when the subject of the
Comments: Class shows. Lack of class as 0bama demonstrates shows like the eyesore that it is.
Class. Romney has been to Israel four times - three times on policy visits; the fourth for a family visit. Has travelled all over Israel, met with the people in Sideroth (in 2007, before Obie got there) and talked with them about the missile fire. Talked with entrepreneurs.
Didn't bring it up when Obie spouted off. Sly fox probably knew it would make the news a different way. Romney does not toot his own horn.
That awful Debbie Wasserman Schultz was on some cable show debate night, apoplectic and insulted that Mitt Romney had not even mentioned Israel a single time , not a single time. She said as.a Jewish woman she found this to be especially offensive. She didn't find Obama throwing Israel under the bus these past four years offensive however. IIRC , Mitt Romney mentioned Israel 14 times. Obama was very uncomfortable talking about Israel and rushed through naming the sites he visited . He probably didn't want to offend his Muslim buddies.
President Announces Conversion to Judaism on Shalom TV
MAX RESNICK: Are you here because your support among Jews is cratering, sir? OBAMA: Yes, Max. The trend accelerated when Romney spoke movingly the other night about his trip to Israel. RESNICK: Short of declaring that you believe Israel had nothing to do with 9/11, how can you turn things around? OBAMA: Did you know Louis Farrakhan recently called me ''the first Jewish president,'' Max? And yesterday, I ruled out a freeze on Jewish construction on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. And, and. ... MICHELLE: Go ahead, tell him. OBAMA: Um, I’ve changed my named to Barach [Baracchhk] Obauma and converted to Judaism, Max. Now I can play both the race and anti-Semite cards. RESNICK: But when ... where? OBAUMA: Last winter, At Bed n’ Beth El, an African-American Reform synagogue on Chicago’s South Side. Rabbi Ezekiel Okombo agreed to fast-track my conversion. I chose ''Reform'' rather than ''Orthodox'' so I wouldn't have to give up my Saturday golf. MICHELLE: Baracchhk commemorated Passover this year by sneaking away to Arizona’s Dunes Resort and playing 40 holes in the desert, straight through. OBAUMA: Rabbi Okombo accepted without question a certified copy of my Certificate of Circumcision. MICHELLE: In his second term, Baracchhk will focus like a laser beam on the real threat to Jews: bible-thumping Evangelicals. RESNICK: Would you come to Israel’s aid in a crisis, Mr. President? OBAUMA: Absolutely. American warships will brook no interference when they pick up Israelis Iran has driven into the sea. And I'll guarantee refugees of the coming Israeli Diaspora right of return to Brooklyn. RESNICK: Thanks for coming on, sir. OBAUMA: Inshallah, Max. Now we’re off to CAIR TV to. ... MICHELLE: Say ''Shalom, Max,'' Baracchhk.
Mitt Romney, being the class-individual he is, has no need to brag about anything he does because, unlike the empty-suit-"president", he KNOWS who HE is. It took awhile but the rest of the Country has figured out who Mitt Romney is too and that's not good for the obamabot. BTW, Debbie blabbermouth schlitz is brain-addled. Seems those little cork-screw-curls coming out of her large head must have passed through her pea-brain. Bless her little black heart!
But did Romney need to be reminded about the Holocaust? Obama said that is why he went. Seems they don’t teach much about the Holocaust in Muslim schools, apparently from Obama preformance's at the debates they don't teach much of anything in those schools.
Obama: “I went to Yad Vashem, the Holocaust museum there, to remind myself [...]"
And again, it's all about Obama.
I went to the local Holocaust museum to show the world I stand with the Jews and support them in their plight as the world again spirals towards another holocaust. My visit was all about those who suffered and hoping to block future suffering.
But not old Barry. He's there to show he's enlightened.

I do wish Romney had mentioned the four visits at various times, though. Just slipped it in. Does give credence to the word I heard that he was not feeling well. If he does this well when 'off his game', good hands indeed!
It is truly hard to understand why any Jew, or Catholic for that matter, still would support Obama. For the President of the United States to have never made a state visit to our only true ally in the Middle East boggle is abhorrent. Oh, and Obama mandating Catholic institutions to provide free birth control. Any Catholic worth their salt wouldn't vote for Obama.
We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.
Former Gov. Angus King, running as an independent, won the Senate contest Tuesday in Maine, NBC News projected, taking a seat that had been held by the Republicans.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.
Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political
A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.
Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
