FULL SPEECH: Mitt Romney speaks in Israel

Romney gave a huge speech today in Israel and he nailed it. It was music to my ears when he stated unequivocally that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. He also said that we must stand at Israel’s side, especially when their security is threatened and that we must not allow the radical theocracy in Iran to get nuclear weapons.



The entire speech was fantastic and you can watch it below:

I loved the speech Romney gave to the Israeli people. The American Jews better wake up if they haven’t already. Obama has made it clear what he thinks about the very people that voted him in! Wake up our Jewish friends, if you vote again for Obama then you are going against Gods word. Support your people in Israel as you should have done in 2008!

Every Jewish person in the US must see this video and stop being typical democrats and support Obama, he is not good for US and the Jewish people. Obama has thrown Israel under the bus numerous times, but not Romney. We need Israel to be on our side, and Romney is the man who will keep his promise.

Mitt knows what has to be done and did it at the Olympics and in Mass. He’ll do the right thing because he has scruples and morals.

Please watch this video that has old news clips and Obama’s bio and damaging info. It shows Ayers saying on tape that he wrote Obama’s first book, speculates on his real dad and shows him when he was at school. VERY informative and explained and narrated as if Obama is telling the story. I do not agree with the conclusion that Obama is the son of Frank Marshall Davis. He needed an African name to win over blacks. His entire past is fabricated. He is not qualified for office due to his past REGARDLESS of where he was born. Perhaps he was raised abroad to protect him from the Nation of Islam here AFTER they murdered Malcolm X. X was a felon, drug pusher and pimp before being a radical Muslim. I have seen videos of Ann Dunham in the crowd after Malcolm X was shot and Nation of Islam… Read more »

If people believe he is X’s son– he will get more support. If he is presented as a Kenyan, that will play well with blacks. So saying he is Davis’ son is logical in order to defray votes from Obama. Regardless of who his daddy is, he is not qualified or eligible to be POTUS.

The bloodlines of the American people and the people of Israel intersect in the past. We are connected by blood, though not many know it. Mr. Obama, as you can tell does not appear to have that same connection, nor does he show any of the loyalty to the nation of Israel, as an ally would, that our previous presidents have had. it is a sad time for both countries. No doubt that situation of disrespect for Israel will continue under Mr. Obama.

Lakin (Obama put him in prison for asking for his creds, now Lakin can’t get his doctor’s license renewed), and Colonel Sellin, who has been fired from his post after speaking out all have to say about Obama and the corruption that put him in power. All of these men have over 20 years of exemplary service each. Please read what Sellin says. It’s time to demand our Congress do their jobs. http://english.pravda.ru/opinion/columnists/13-07-2012/121651-obama_corruption-0/

http://rightsided.tumblr.com/1001 Reasons to not be for Obama. NDAA thanks to Obama. The media is silent. Total power grab. Would they have allowed someone with Obama’s past, gaffes, mystery and associates to be President if he was a Republican? Sealed documents, outrageous insults to our allies, special deals for our foes like drilling where US can’t and selling Russia oil rich islands, yet the media is silent. Obama even got Osama using the VERY TACTICS he condemned Bush for and took the credit when he was not even there when it went down. Lie upon lie upon lie by this man and his thug backed admin. The man has a very flawed character, radical friends (read his book) and no record. Obama is unworthy of the office.

Destroy the middle class? I don’t like much about Romney, but the one area he has nailed is economic reform. The middle class will experience prosperity again, if Romney can get his reforms in place in time, AND he kills Obamacare.

Romney’s weakness is in understanding the Constitution. That’s equally bad for everyone, not the middle class.

Frankly, sir, I cannot trust your comments or opinions in anything.

Then they can make an informed decision about your interests; goals; values; and prejudices. I regret that I am concerned; worried; and alarmed by many things I read on your site: strange diatriabes about sexual activity; seeminly contradictory opinions; unlimited egotism; PLUS a foreign phrase which appears at the top of your site: תחבולות תעשה לך מלחמה which I am informed means: “By Way Of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War.” Thus, I have to ask: Are your supposedly “pro-Republican” comments all DECEPTIONS?

Your comment is ambiguous. “Mind reading” as to Virus X? Not so–I research issues and people for a living. I seek out authoritative sources, and digest them rather quickly. Today, I went to Virus-X OWN WEB SITE (he is sole owner and manager). What I read disturbed me, and so I posed my question. “Mind reading” as our next President? Not all all–I have been studying him for more than five years. HE WAS NOT MY FIRST CHOICE, but he has “grown on me”. Furthermore, as reflected by 1) donations FROM EVERYDAY AMERICANS, 2) polls (which are inevitably STACKED AGAINST HIM), and 3) by the attendance at his speeches, AN EXPANDING MAJORITY OF OUR COUNTRYMAN SUPPORT HIS CANDIDACY. As to our “Virus X”, go to his web site; study carefully; make up your own mind. IF MOST AMERICANS WOULD STUDY THE ISSUES UPON WHICH OUR FREEDOMS DEPEND, the O’Bastard would… Read more »

I see where you’re coming from K-Bob. It does seem that he’s reading into it too much. The phrase he’s referring to could also be easily taken as one of Sun Tzu’s principles. Sun Tzu believed one of the best offenses was cloak & dagger or ambiguity. It’s something the Progressives have been using to corral and use the American people for their own ends. Anyhow, I’m with you, he’s reading into that waaaaaaay too much.

I also don’t see what he’s going on about at Virus-X’s site. Apparently Mr. Hicks would be shocked to the core if he visited sites like AceofSpades HQ, BlackFive, TheHostages, MyPetJawa and other places where military and former military guys (and wimmens) are known to hang out.

We don’t have to “get” the military mindset. I didn’t ever wear the uniform, so I hold my tongue around those guys because they have their way, and it’s not my place to second-guess ’em.

Dude, if you are so good at research, then go find out how Romney became the presumptive nominee. If the polls were stacked against him, then it was probably because he didn’t have the support, and fraud turned the tide. Check out all of the states where duly elected non-Romney delegates were cut out and replaced with Romney delegates by the GOP and the Romney camp. Check out what happened in Nevada, where Romney and the GOP completely replaced the state GOP after the convention because he lost all of the delegates. Romney hasn’t received his money from every day Americans, he has received most of it from bankers and corporations. Go compare Romney’s speech attendance to Ron Paul’s. Romney has mostly just had a few people showing up to most events. You can find plenty on youtube. There may be an expanding majority of people supporting him, but it… Read more »

Lori, I can already tell you what we are going to get with Romney. We are going to get a continuation of massive regulatory tyranny. Huge corporations literally run the regulatory agencies like the USDA and FDA. We literally have a corporation run government. Romney won’t do anything with the Fed that congress doesn’t hand him. I don’t believe for a minute that Romney will go after the fed, because it is the head of the banking system that is getting him elected. I’ve been lied to by every president for the last 20 years, and I finally figured out why. The American people don’t elect them. The fraud runs so deep that they are literally put in via election fraud. They put up a good show, but that it all that it is.

Thanks for posting this RS! I agree it was an excellent speech. I’m glad to hear he’s willing to call the capital of Israel, Jerusalem – unlike the current administration. My only reservation about Mitt is he is the consummate politician and that causes me to wonder if he will enter the White House (and he will, Lord-willing) on the coat-strings of promises and pledges only to abandon them when the electoral pressures are off. Lest we forget this is the same man whose position on abortion has flipped flopped over the years and whose claim to fame in Massachusetts is Romneycare. Look, I’m not saying that someone can’t truly change and perhaps Mitt has had an epiphany about his pro-life stance. I just find it hard to trust someone who is a politician groomed from birth.

Isn’t it nice to hear a leader speak clearly and forcefully without hemming and hawing? I like this speech because it doesn’t mince words – regardless of whether or not I agree with him. And I think Mitt should turn the British BS “gaffe” into a strength. He should run the interview clip with a “straight talk from a real leader” message. Because one of his negatives is that people think he’ll do and say anything to get elected. Well, he expressed his honest opinion on the Olympics, not saying what people wanted to hear, – and got crucified for it from the thin-skinned and lefty Brits. Shame on them. But Britain has become such a joke and everybody knows this. All they have left is “snark” and faux superiority.

Please don’t fall for the people think Romney “will do or say anything to get elected”. That was Obama’s false accusation against Hillary and it is his false accusation against Mitt. You all are falling right into Obama’s lying game because truly he is the one who will do or say anything to win. Examples: To get the Hispanic vote, do not carry out the law and let illegals stay in the country; women vote offer free birth control pills, abortions all the way through the last trimester, etc.; Jewish vote sign a bill passed by congress for military aid to Israel on the day before Mitt goes to Israel; lazy people vote: offer welfare for life, etc. Make speeches talking about fairness concurrently while expousing these policies. Now ask yourselves who is the one who will do or say anything to win? Answer: Obama not Romney.

It is just a feeling that I get perhaps, but I think most of our allies of old would sigh a huge breath of relief for a Romney Presidency.

Vetted? Did you miss out on the primary? All of Romney’s mistakes were brought up again, and again, and again. Compared to Obama, Romney is fully vetted. We know he’s not ideal. He’s weak on the Constitution. He’s weak on illegal aliens. He’s weak on fiscal issues (which is odd, given he’s a businessman). But he’s the nominee.

Time to decide who you’re voting for, not whether there’s some minute speck of information that was miraculously overlooked.

Romney was not my choice, but this was a good speech, well-delivered, and he said what those who believe Israel has as right to exist need to hear. I think the fact that he declared that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel presents a clear contrast to the Obama administration who won’t speak those two words in the same sentence.

Good for you, Mr. Romney… Keep it up! America must regain the faith and confidence of our most loyal allies around the world and stand against tyranny at home and abroad!

The majority of people in this country support God’s Glory-Israel. There is no doubt in my mind that Romney would be a devastating blow to Muslim miscreants that sit around every day trying to lie, deceive, manipulate, and embezzle public trust.

As he emerged victorious in the debates, one of the statements he made struck me (as I am sure it did many) that our friends will know who are our friends, and our enemies will know who are our enemies. THAT was sweet music to my ears.

THAT was an outstanding speech by Mitt Romney in Israel today.

He didn’t use a teleprompter, only occasionally looked at his notes, and he appeared sincere. More importantly, he seems to recognize the threat of International terrorism and prizes our relationship with Israel.

As much as I hate Romney’s Obama-like liberalism, I do not believe he has a vindictive disdain for America, the Constitution, Christianity, and of course, Israel that Barack Obama obviously has.

We cannot take four years of Barack Obama’s lawless destruction of this country, so my family and I have changed our minds on sitting out this election and will be voting for Mitt Romney this November.

I thought it was a good speech, Romney addressed the right points and affirmed America’s support of and continued alliance with Israel. Hopefully the Israelis can discern the stark difference between Romney and NoShowobama and how who gets elected President of the United States this November affects their country. The current occupant of the White House has made his feelings toward Israel abundantly clear…he’s no friend nor is he a steady, dependable ally of Israel. Romney would continue our friendship and support of Israel in these troubling times in the Middle East, whereas NoShow would cut and run.

HOWEVER, Americans must still look at how our President will lead us in the next four years as well. Also, while what Romney says about the Middle Eastern countries is true, what is HE going to do about it…….if he were to get into office. DON’T TAKE HIM AT HIS WORDS. THEY ARE JUST RHETORIC- We American Jews do not turn our backs on Israel…..we just see the truth about the way this country will be governed by the Mitt Romney.
