Mitt Romney Lavishes Praise On Israel's Socialist, Government Controlled Healthcare System

Mitt Romney seems to be laboring under the impression that whatever he says in a foreign country will—like a weekend in Las Vegas—somehow stay in that foreign country.

Either that or he figures nobody back home is paying any attention. Speaking today to a small group of Israeli contributors to his campaign, the GOP presidential candidate—and supposed sworn enemy of government controlled healthcare—had kind words for the success of Israel’s healthcare system:

"When our health care costs are completely out of control. Do you realize what health care spending is as a percentage of the GDP in Israel? 8 percent. You spend 8 percent of GDP on health care. And you’re a pretty healthy nation"

Does he listen to himself talk? Or does he just say words? I am 100% convinced his staff and advisers hate him or something. It’s like An Idiot Abroad: When Mittens Attacks.

I mean, if he wants to campaign on socialized medicine, that’s cool too… But I’m pretty sure he just figured what happens in Israel, stays in Israel. Except internets, Mitt. There’s always the internet.

    It’s like Ricky Gervais’s show on the national and international front. Unbelievable. And people still wonder why I will...

    Oh Mittens. You actually think you’d make a decent POTUS. It’d be funny if it wasn’t so terrifying.
