  •  Yassir Arafat's looting (8+ / 0-)

    Of course, if you add in the billion dollars that Yassir Arafat stole from his people, their GDP would look a lot better.

    As is often the case, Romney sort of makes a reasonable point but not only gets it backward but does it in the most, um, unpresidential manner.  

    The reason that democracies like the US and Israel have higher per capita incomes than surrounding countries is, among other things, regulations and a strong central government that builds and maintains infrastructure.  This is political, not necessarily cultural.

    And, as often the case, the right invents a culture war and finds itself on the wrong side.
