Romney Speaks Up

You got to love the audacity of this guy; he knows how to play the media.


Mitt Romney cited Hezbollah's social network as a model for U.S. diplomacy.

The former Massachusetts governor, a front-runner in the race for the Republican presidential candidacy, was asked during a campaign stop in Iowa over the weekend whether he would renew President Bush's $50 million campaign to combat AIDS in Africa.

Romney said he would, and would use American know-how to advance U.S. interests.

"Did you notice in Lebanon what Hezbollah did?" he said in remarks broadcast on C-Span and captured by Crooks and Liars, a liberal Web site. "Lebanon became a democracy some time ago and while their government was getting under way, Hezbollah went into southern Lebanon and provided health clinics to some of the people there, and schools. And they built their support there by having done so. That kind of diplomacy is something that would help America become stronger around the world and help people understand that our interest is an interest towards modernity and goodness and freedom for all people in the world. And so, I want to see America carry out that kind of health diplomacy."

Israel says Hezbollah used its social activism as a cover to blanket south Lebanon with arms, helping to precipitate last summer's war.


While I will agree a bit with Romney, I do not think he is serious in this statement.

This statement is confusing. What know-how? Start a war to make the point? Mitt, Mitt, Mitt--you might want to re-think your statement. The US has f*cked up everything it has touched diplomatically--is that the know-how you want to use? If so, may I say to the Voters--Beware!

Mitt, Mitt, Mitt--this statement needs to be corrected also.

Lebanon became a democracy some time ago and while their government was getting under way, Hezbollah went into southern Lebanon and provided health clinics to some of the people there, and schools.

Lebanon became a deomcracy back in the 50's or 60's--Hezbollah came into being during the lebanese Civil War during the 80's. And it went to S. Lebanon because the central government was ignoring them and Israel was occupying them. It went as a revolutiuonary force to fight. Yes it did help the people, but that was part of the plan, win hearts and minds, and it did. It's goal was to fight Israel not to instill democracy. Rethink, my ,man, re-think!

He show me that he has no idea about the culture or the hhistory of the area, same as the Bush Boyz, and there lies the prob and why we are up to our butts in sh*t. So Mitt will be no different than Bush.
