Why is Romney treated like a visiting head of state, both in Israel and the UK? If President Obama catered to a labour leader like Netanyahu or Cameron treated Romney he would be savaged in the press - both foreign and domestic. But these conservative meddlers in America's political process are getting free pass. Just as bad is Romney going hat-in-hand to what are, frankly, turncoats. These are a group of people who have turned their backs on America and chosen Israel as their home. i don't begrudge them that; it is their choice. But if they want to be Israelis they should renounce their US citizenship, and stop involving themselves in US politics. If America is that important to them, leave Israel and move back. This is an unapologetic exploitation of campaign finance loopholes: foreign nationals who can claim they have a right to influence US elections.
