Well, we all know that Mitt Romney has insulted PalestiniansÂ by suggestingÂ that the reason why the Palestinian territories have a worse economy than Israel derives from culture.
After Mr. Romneyâ€™s remarks drew criticism, his campaign said that The Associated Press had â€œgrossly mischaracterizedâ€ the remarks by not providing the full context. For instance, the campaign said, after mentioning the per capita G.D.P. of Israel and Palestine, Mr. Romney also said: â€œAnd that is also between other countries that are near or next to each other. Chile and Ecuador, Mexico and the United States.â€
So that means that the reason why Mexico has worse economic performance than the United States is also due to “culture.”
Note to David Axelrod: millions of viewers of Spanish-language television should know that Mitt Romney thinks that their ancestral culture is inferior.Â Just a thought.
