Bibi and Romney

Looks like Netanyahu is hedging his bets, but as politico puts it, this probably won’t help his relationship with Obama.

This probably won’t help the cool relations between Obama and Netanyahu. For Romney, it’s a mark of stature that he got a meeting — and a photo — with the Israeli leader, and it sets a bar for every other Republican passing through Israel to meet.

According to the Prime Minister’s office:

The two men discussed a series of issues, including advancing the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians, which will be based on security, and the challenge to the international community posed by the Iranian nuclear program.

    Well, a smart move for Romney, as Huckabee and Palin both have stronger pro-Israel credentials among Republican primary voters, for now anyway. If Netanyahu really wants to help Romney, though, he’ll issue a statement saying that Romney’s MA health care plan had nothing to do with Obamacare, all appearances to the contrary notwithstanding.

    Mitt ain’t gonna be the Republican nominee.
