At the risk of sounding like a political hack, kudos to Mitt Romney for his expressions of support for Israel during his visit to that embattled nation.
Romney, of course, is right in not outlining his differences with President Obama while overseas, but it is pretty clear that Israel would have a better friend and ally with Romney than they presently have with Obama.
In addition, Romney took a lot of slings and arrows over his expression of concern about the London Olympics. Diplomatically speaking, he shouldn't have said it that way. He was right, however. I hope it won't take some tragic event to vindicate him.
