        Mr. Romney is currently tour of the UK, Israel and Poland, an action that was intended to burnish his profile globally, but it has been overshadowed by numerous media reports of his perceived missteps. Here's what he did:

        - he declared Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel, even though US policy holds that the city's designation is a matter for negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

        - he told an audience of Jewish donors that cultural differences explained why Israel's economy was much larger than that of the Palestinians.

        - the British media had a field day criticising him on the first leg of his tour in London, when he questioned the country's readiness to host the 2012 Olympic Games.

        I don't care much for Obama either but come on, Jerusalem the capital of Israel? Are you kidding me?

        Well...Romney has his short comings, that is for sure!

        But, his questioning of the Olympics is right on.  The British messed up the security requiring the military to be sent in.  And...have you seen all the empty seats? 

        Yeah, the capital of Israel was a bone-head moment.

        But...at least Romney has created jobs.  Obama has destroyed them.  The only jobs that have grown under Obama are government jobs.  The Stimulus was a disaster, and where are all the "milions of shovel ready jobs" he promised?

        The capital of Israel is Jerusalem. The capital of Israel; Jerusalem, was established in 1950. 'The Debate' It is understandable that Israel, being

        Hmmm... still don't know the answer

        Jerusalem ( /dʒəˈruːsələm/; Hebrew: יְרוּשָׁלַיִם‎‎ Yerushaláyim  ; Arabic: القُدس‎ al-Quds    and/or أورشليم Ûrshalîm)[i] is the capital of Israel, though not internationally recognized as such,[ii] and one of the oldest cities in the world.[1] It is located in the Judean Mountains

        The UN and most countries (including the US as far as I know) recognize Tel Aviv as the capital, not Jerusalem. A wannabe president should have known that.

        Sure..Romney was a dummy not to know the capital.  But who is the bigger dummy?  I'd say the guy who told us the "stimulus" would create millions of "shovel ready jobs."

        And....I know the African Americans in the USA are happy to have a black President.  Very good...America sure is great.  But UNemployment in the black community is at record highs...15 - 20%. 

        Obama has been a first rate disaster.  Romney is no prize, but give me Romney over another 4 years of this disasterous President.

          i couldnt agree with you more on anything you have ever said about the current administration Doc,  i hope romney wins and lets the lazy majority feel the pain that they feel the rich and small business owners feel as they are buying them another free lunch.  it is gonna be time to pay the piper and get rid of our current welfare state.  i guess that is why they say  "no pain, no gain"  and they werent talking about implants.  and as a totally non religious person,  i thought he capital of israel was always jeruselum?  i would have made this my final answer so when was tel aviv the capital?  i dont follow middle east politics alot but had never heard of that...

        thanks for letting me know as a hard working african american woman whose putting my son through college that i was happy to have a black president when i didnt vote for obama and i just wanted someone in office that would change things for the better.I dont care about race but seeing this post made me realize that it always comes back to one thing,skin color.If the post would have read (some african americans like to see a black president i would have agreed).We are all entitled to our opinion but please dont assume to know what all african americans are thinking.

        Rena:  First, it is awesome you work to put your kid in college.  A lot of Americans now expect the government to pay it.

        However, it IS worth noting.  Over 90% of African Americans (That is more than your "some.") voted for Obama, yet, African Americans are faring worse than any other demographic under this President.  Unemployment for African Americans is through the roof.  So, it is a fair question to ask this demographic:  Why vote for someone who has record breaking dis-service to you?
