In yet another sign that Mitt Romney is starting to read the tea leaves and get more aggressive, Romney attacked one of the third rails of liberal politics; the Palestinians.  For years, American presidents have thrown American money and political capital down the rat hole of the peace process.  Here is what he had to say about the prospect of peace with these people:

US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney questioned the feasibility of the establishment of a Palestinian state in the West Bank in video footage published on Tuesday by US magazine Mother Jones.

“The idea of pushing on the Israelis to give something up to get the Palestinians to act is the worst idea in the world,” Romney said.

“I’m torn by two perspectives in this regard,” he said at a $50,000-per-plate fund-raising dinner in Boca Raton, Florida, on May 17. “One is the one which I’ve had for some time, which is that the Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace, and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish.”
