Analysis: Israelis, American Jews watch Romney trip from different perspectives

(CNN) - All politics is local, the Massachusetts sage Tip O'Neill was known to say, an adage that applies to Mitt Romney's trip to Israel.

The presumptive Republican nominee for president of the United States included the so-called Holy Land in his itinerary for secular purposes, seeking support in precincts with concentrations of Jewish voters, including those in so-called battleground states, such as Palm Beach and Broward counties in Florida, Clark County, Nevada, and Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

    If the people of Isreal have been watching and listening to Mr.Romney and his answers to just about anything includeing Foreign Policy they won't support his un-decisive, fip-flopping responses and answers.Lets hope for their sake they have been paying attention. It is their future and survival at steak.

    Jewish Americans won't fll for "Mr. Ethc-A.Sketch's" pandering and ridiculous promises. Romney's chicken-hawk approach to dipolmacy will do nothing but create chaos in the region. His fat-cat handlers would profit from more war – like Halliburton in Iraq.
