Mitt has just finished speaking for about 20 minutes in Jerusalem, which he recognizes as the capital of Israel. Next it is dinner with Benjamin Netanyahu and then off to Poland tomorrow. I wonder what he will promise to the Polish people?
Reportedly in London, he told the City bankers, their version of Wall Street, that he opposed financial regulation of their industry, as in Dodd-Frank. In Jerusalem, he promised Israel support if they decide to use the military option against Iran.
The crowd size in Jerusalem was about 150 hand-picked guests. Probably more security people than guests in the crowd. Mitt used two teleprompters, and it was obvious as Mitt’s head swiveled from side to side during the speech. It was almost as if he were at Wimbledon, watching a tennis match.
