Mitt Romney on foreign policy: “kick the ball down the field and hope”

Mother Jones released more footage of Mitt Romney’s fund raising event caught on video.

In this clip, Mitt Romney says his approach to the Israel/Palestine issue is to “hope for some degree of stability” and “we kick the ball down the field and hope that ultimately something will happen and resolve it.”

Text from the clip:

Romney spoke of “the Palestinians” as a united bloc of one mindset, and he said: “I look at the Palestinians not wanting to see peace anyway, for political purposes, committed to the destruction and elimination of Israel, and these thorny issues, and I say there’s just no way.” Romney was indicating he did not believe in the peace process and, as president, would aim to postpone significant action: “[S]o what you do is, you say, you move things along the best way you can. You hope for some degree of stability, but you recognize that this is going to remain an unsolved problem…and we kick the ball down the field and hope that ultimately, somehow, something will happen and resolve it.”
