    Mitt Romney Denies Criticizing Palestinian Culture


    WASHINGTON -- Mitt Romney says he wasn't criticizing Palestinian culture at a fundraiser in Jerusalem on Monday.

    Palestinian officials accused the Republican presidential candidate of racism for suggesting that culture helps explain the economic disparity between Israelis and Palestinians

    On Tuesday, Romney told Fox News that he wasn't specifically talking about Palestinian culture and doesn't plan to during the campaign.


    He's downplaying a series of perceived missteps and instead blaming the media. Romney says reporters are more interested in "finding something to write" than about reporting on the economy and national security threats.

    Romney prompted angry headlines across England last week when he questioned London's readiness for the Olympics.

    He says the media is trying to "divert from the fact that these last four years have been tough years for our country."

    Why can't the Republican party nominate a candidate for POTUS that can make a statement without then having to send out surrogates to make a "what he really meant to say was" rebuttal? -pewsh!-

    Romney pulled an Obama, or a Bush, or a Clinton, or a Bush, or a Reagan.

    yet, you guys nominated and elected Obama the man who says there are over 57 states and who thinks Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel.

    Oh and Mitt didnt criticize their culture. He merely pointed out that different cultures produce different outcomes. Which is a bit of a no-brainer. He didnt comment at all on any aspects of the Palestinian culture.

    How do you equate telling the Jews they do well because of their Culture with Putting down Palestinian Culture? He was making a very Valid point, that the Freedom and Openness of Israeli Culture is a big part of why they Prosper.

    So Romney is not denying saying what he said, he is defending against people like you who are trying to Re-define what he said into something else.

    Besides why are you upset about someone denying they said what they said? Obama does that almost constantly lately.
