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.
