Penny’s Current Events Corner – ‘Romneyshambles’ Continues to Tour

30 Jul

Charles Krauthammer (conservative commentator) on Romney’s diplomatic prowess in London:

“It’s unbelievable, it’s beyond human understanding, it’s incomprehensible. I’m out of adjectives… All the man has to do is say nothing.” (No, I didn’t take it out of context, unlike some we could name. Cough.)

Other notable quotes from the mouth of the man himself:

Mr. Romney on Iran – “They want to know who will object and who will look the other way. We will not look away nor will our country ever look away from our passion and commitment to Israel. [Iran is] the most destabilizing nation in the world, [and the US has] a solemn duty and a moral imperative to deny Iran’s leaders the means to follow through on their malevolent intentions”.

(Morals are a tricky thing, you know. All relativistic and shit.)

Mr. Romney on Israel – “It is a deeply moving experience to be in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel,” he said.

(I’m sure the Palestinians were overjoyed to learn that their capital isn’t their capital after all.) ((I have no opinion on whose capital it is other than to say that it’s not my opinion to have – this is an argument that has been going on since forever and I’m well out of it.)) (((The opinion I do have is that Hills probably wants to wring a certain neck supporting a certain well-coiffed head; things have not been so smooth with the Palestinians of late.)))

For more potentially biased but hopefully accurate reportage, I refer you to the BBC (one does hope that the Brits’ stiff upper lips will succeed in informing their own moral imperative to engage in unbiased journalism). Should you care for the liberal slant, we recommend Slate and Salon. Charles Krauthammer really said it all for the conservatives, but for other interpretations, here’s Fox News.
