    But who does he blame for the controversy over moving our embassy to Jerusalem? That's a fundamentally stupid idea and he owns it.

    The final status of Jerusalem is the single most emotionally fraught issue in international politics, ahead even of Kashmir and Tibet, and Romney thinks he can just decree how it will be resolved and everyone else can live with it?

    He's a bully, but he's a bully who is picking a fight in a bar when Bruce Lee, Mike Tyson, and George Foreman occupy the next 3 bar stools. This is not just offensive but incredibly dangerous to our troops and diplomats, and Romney doesn't care because Sheldon Adelson gave him $10M to say that.

    Furthermore, I seem to recall that there was a time that Christians thought Jerusalem was important to our religion rather than belonging to the Jews and only the Jews. Pope Urban II, Richard the Lionhearted and Louis XIV, among others, seem to have expressed some opinions along those lines. Since when did it become an indication of your evangelical fervor that you think Jerusalem is Jewish?

    Romney economics: Feed our seed corn to the fattest pigs and trust them to poop out jobs.
