The net effect: No change in US Policy

Reader comment on item: Romney's Remarkable Speech in Jerusalem

Submitted by There is NO Santa Claus (United States), Jul 30, 2012 at 08:21

The candidates always speak well of Israel during the election season. The net effect is (if elected), Romney will run the same petro-dollar dominated government his predecessor did.

President Bush always spoke well of Israel and the Jewish people. While he did so, his Sec. of State was carrying out policies directly opposite of the President's eloquent comments. Read the text of President Bush's address to the Israeli Knesset and compare that to the direct diplomatic actions of Sec. of State. Condoleeza Rice.

I can only say that it was nice for our country's leader to speak in complimentary terms about Israel. Our current leader does not.

Yet, in the end, talk is cheap and (as I remind all who follow elections) campaign promises are not legally binding contracts. Buyer beware!

You miss the point that this is a moral and philosophical and religious connection for Romney.
