DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz seems to reside in a different reality than the rest of us. After the debate last night she said:
What I was surprised about Greta, during the entire section of the debate on the Middle East, Mitt Romney didn’t bring up Israel once and I think it just shows he isn’t committed to Israel as he says he is and has really only used the issue as a political opportunity.
The only problem for Wasserman Schultz is that a mere glance at the transcript of last night’s debate shows that Romney mentioned Israel eleven times. Here are three examples of Mitt Romney expressing his support for Israel:
We also have to stand by our allies, I think the tension that has existed between Israel and the United States is very unfortunate.
When I am president of the United States, we will stand by Israel. And if Israel is attacked, we have their back.
The turmoil with Israel, I mean the president received a letter from 38 Democratic senators saying the tension with Israel was a real problem.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s attempt to spin the president’s abysmal record on Israel is unbecoming, and let us hope that Florida’s Jewish community will take note of Mitt Romney’s actual statements in the debate in their state.
