Romney visited Yad Vashem
in 2007, and Sderot in 2011

Times of Israel [Jerusalem], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/23/2012 10:59:51 PM

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

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.

A teachable moment for brash, desperate Obie.

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!

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.

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.

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.

As expected, the presidential race is tight in Ohio, where the polls just closed: President Obama is winning women 55 percent to 44 percent in the early CBS News exit poll, while Mitt Romney is leading 52 percent to 46 percent among men. Women made up 51 percent of the electorate, compared to 49 percent among women. Thirty-nine percent of voters so far identified themselves as Democrats, compared to 30 percent calling themselves Republican.

As expected, Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney, won West Virginia’s five electoral votes in Tuesday’s General Election over President Barack Obama. National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia.

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time.

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft
