Apparently Obama was for the no Jerusalem plank before he was against it...

This is probably one of the most confusing pieces of journalism I have ever read.


"Mitt Romney spent last week claiming the Republican platform didn't reflect his personal views. That's why the platform was amended, to make clear what the president's personal views are on Jerusalem," the official said.
The official acknowledged that the administration's policy remains not to weigh in on the final status of Jerusalem, which is an issue to be decided by the parties. But the official said that Obama's views and the administration policy are two separate things.

“This makes crystal clear what the President’s personal view is. The policy has not changed. The president has a personal view and the administration has a policy. They’re not incompatible but there are reasons that the administration’s policy is that the Jerusalem is a final status issue," the official said. “We wanted to make the President’s views clear.”

He was before it before he was against it, eh? What a bunch of BS.

That vote on the platform was priceless. There were as many, probably more, no's than yes's, yet they said there were 2/3 more yes votes than no's. Oh, brother. :rolleyes:

The DNC caved to the pressure. Apparently they realized that they would lose hundreds of thousands of votes over it.

You can't un-ring a bell.

That was hilarious when they showed the "vote" and had the nerve to say it was in favor of the motion...


After all the screaming of Romney and Ryan being liars. :rolleyes:
