    All the more reason for him to visit more countries. The more countries he makes idiotic comments about, the less likely he will be left in charge of this mess (the US). It doesn't matter how many people like him or share his values, if he proves to be a moron he won't get the vote. Palin proved that.

    All candidates should be out there embarrassing themselves.
    I like to watch. (Call me "Chauncey Gardener"!)
    His behavior in the middle east concerns me greatly, given that we're on the hook for any war Israel is involved in.

    It's clear to me that Romney is no moron. He's a sharp guy. But that isn't the problem....if his particular brand
    of faith leads us into a US-Iran-Israel-anyone war, then I'd like to see indicators of this before the election.

    And if he stayed home, those who aren't going to vote for him anyway would say he lacks international experience. Yawn.

    I think the angst he is stirring up is mostly among Democrats who see Obama upset the Jewish voters who normally vote Democrat. Combine that with Obama's attacks on achievement oriented people, who statistically are disproportionately Jewish, and there's real concern among the donkeys they might lose this November.

    And before anyone gets his/her boxers in a bunch, I invite you to read Rabbi Daniel Lapin's book Thou Shalt Prosper, as he has researched Jewish prosperity extensively.

    The Dems will condemn whatever Romney does....tis expected. But if he continually angers peoples with whom he must forge compromises in order to avoid global
    conflagration, then this concerns me. I expect that these gaffes will just be learning experiences, as are Obama's, but I watch to see if substance lurks beneath.

    Me too. I mean, you just can't go speaking the truth, especially when it's backed up by facts, if someone out there is going to cry over it.;) When I get off the interwebs, I'll call them a WAH-bulance.:D

    Speak the truth? I'd settle for honest & candid opinions.

    No, but one can hope.
    Honesty is for fringe candidates who know they won't win.
