Romney tries to score on Libya

Romney Fumbles on Foreign Relations

Romney insults Britain

Mitt Romney blundered on his first diplomatic outing by questioning whether London was capable of staging a successful Olympic Games. It astonished Downing Street. One senior Whitehall source said: "What a total shocker. We are speechless."

slide62

Romney Fumbles on Foreign Relations

Romney insults Israel

Romney: “What America is not a collective where we all work in a Kibbutz or we all in some little entity, instead it’s individuals pursuing their dreams and building successful enterprises which employ others and they become inspired as they see what has happened in the place they work and go off and start their own enterprises.”

slide63

Romney Fumbles on Foreign Relations

Not only did he inflame Palestinian sentiment by suggesting that their culture was responsible for their economic distress, he gave tacit encouragement for an Israeli strike on Iran and recognized Jerusalem as the country’s capital, despite a careful US policy of maintaining its major presence in Tel Aviv.

slide64

Romney Fumbles on Foreign Relations

Romney insults Polish People

Romney Tied to Bain Capital in 2012

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has said he had no active role in Bain Capital, the private equity firm he founded, after he exited in February 1999, but he personally signed or approved a series of corporate and legal documents through the spring of 2001.

Why did Romney have to say something that was provably false?
