For John, BLUF: Romney correct re Palestine and wrong re 47%.
Not about the Palestinian question. We have decades of experience pointing to the Palestinians wanting the whole thing. Of course, the question is, where would the Israelis go? Short answer—here.
No! This is about how the "47%" will vote. Mr Brian Micklethwait, over at Samizdata, says that we should look at the Thatcher analogy, where many on the dole voted for her because she was their only hope of getting off the dole, and they wanted off. Stubborn pride is a powerful force.
I am not one of those fatigued by the campaigns and ready to declare it over, and Candidate Obama the winner.
Regards — Cliff
