By now everyone has heard of the Olympic #Romneyshambles that ensued during the Republican-Would-Be-President’s visit. Fewer noticed his fundraiser behind closed doors on foreign soil attended by bankers from the Libor scandal.
But the events in London are only the beginning. Jerusalem is next:
Romney’s campaign had negotiated an agreement with the press which allowed the media to attend all Romney fundraisers in public venues. Romney’s campaign decided to ban the media from the Jerusalem fundraiser and then flip – flopped. Now the media is allowed during Romney’s remarks, but have to leave the room before the question and answer session with the donors.
What is Romney willing to say to rich foreign donors that he won’t say to the press?
And beyond that, what happens when he arrives in Poland?
