In an interview with Israel Hayom, Mitt Romney explained that any criticism of Israel should not be for public consumption, saying, "If there were places where we disagree, I would hold these disagreements in private conversations, not in public forums." It wasn't the first time Romney relegated political discussions to "quiet rooms…"
* When asked if there were "no fair questions about the distribution of wealth without it being seen as envy," Romney replied," I think it's fine to talk about these things in quiet rooms and discussions about tax policy and the like. But the President has made it part of his campaign rally."
* When asked about specific cost saving in federal programs Romney responded, "One of the things I found in a short campaign against Ted Kennedy was that when I said, for instance, that I wanted to eliminate the Department of Education, that was used to suggest I don't care about education [Wow! Like in a real political campaign!]…so will there be some that get eliminated or combined? The answer is yes, but I'm not going to give you a list right now."
* Asked if he supported the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, Romney said, "I'm not going to go back and look at all the prior laws and say had I been there which ones would I have supported and signed."
Between diplomacy, domestic spending, tax rates and women's rights, that's a lot of issues to talk about in quiet rooms. No wonder Romney needs so many homes.
