Romney's remarkable speech in Jerusalem.

Mitt Romney delivered a speech in Jerusalem today, packing emotional support with frank policy statements. The contrast with Obama could hardly be more dramatic. Indeed, one could go through the speech and note the many refutations of Obama. For example, the opening comment that "To step foot into Israel is to step foot into a nation that began with an ancient promise made in this land" directly contrasts with Obama's crabbed statement in Cairo about "the aspiration for a Jewish homeland being rooted in a tragic history."

Also, in contrast to the nonsensical Obama administration stance on Jerusalem ,Romney came out and plainly called Jerusalem "the capital of Israel."

Also Romney’s statement : “It is my firm conviction that the security of Israel is in the vital national security interest of the United States “.

But of the whole speech, it is the final words that most struck me: "May God bless America, and may He bless and protect the Nation of Israel." When last did a politician ask the Lord to protect another country and not his own?

Which speech do you prefer? Romney’s or Obama’s?
