As heavily covered, Romney traveled to Israel yesterday and had a great meeting with the Prime Minister of Israel. In fact, Netanyahu called Romney an “old friend” (they worked together when Netanyahu worked in the United States) and praised Romney while digging at Obama’s inability to stand with Israel. Politico reports:
“We’ve known each other for many decades, since you were a young man, but for some reason, you still look young,” he said, prompting a laugh from Romney. “You’ve been a personal friend of mine and a strong friend of the state of Israel, and that’s why it’s a pleasure to welcome you here.”
And, in something of a rebuke to Obama, Netanyahu also used the meeting with the presumptive GOP nominee to implicitly criticize the president’s preferred approach to dealing with Iran.
So, in honor of Romney’s warm reception in Israel and Obama’s absolute inability to stand behind the only rational free democratic state in the Middle East (savethe burgeoning democracy in Iraq), let’s have a caption contest. What do you think Obama, and his campaign, are thinking?
