Romney Doubles Down as Minister of Culture

After denying today that he was dissing Palestinian "culture"  in his remarks yesterday in Israel, Mitt actually refutes himself and doubles down in a piece posted by Natonal Review Online tonight.  He doesn't focus strictly on Israel this time but the message still comes through loud and clear.  And I love the eternal tributes to the wisdom of the Founding Fathers, such as: "In the America they designed, we would have economic freedom... Here, we would not be limited by the circumstance of birth nor directed by the supposedly informed hand of government. We would be free to pursue happiness as we wish."  Forgetting, for the moment slavery, as he did yesterday in ignoring Palestinian's loss of land and state of occupation....

New posting tonight by John Cassidy at The New Yorker dismissing attempts by Romneyites to "put lipstick on the pig" that was his entire trip abroad.

It seems extremely ironic that Romney says this country's culture was improved because of the civil war against slavery, while blaming occupied Palestinians for not being cultured enough to make lots of dough.
