Romney's Hezbollah Moment
Romney: ...”Did you notice in Lebanon, what Hezbollah did? Lebanon became a democracy some time ago and while their government was getting underway, Hezbollah went into southern Lebanon and provided health clinics to some of the people there, and schools. And they built their support there by having done so. That kind of diplomacy is something that would help America become stronger around the world and help people understand that our interest is an interest towards modernity and goodness and freedom for all people in the world. And so, I want to see America carry out that kind of health diplomacy...”
Sounds quite a bit like Patty Murray's dipstick comments about Osama and his support for daycare centers.
Romney responds by saying
that he's consistently denounced Hezbollah, but note that he does not deny make the statement above.
