In an interview airing tonight on Aaron Klein’s WABC Radio show, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton accused President Barack Obama of not being committed to the security of the State of Israel.
“I think Gov. Romney is committed to the security of Israel in ways that are really very consistent with what used to be the broad, bipartisan tradition in American politics, a tradition that has not been followed by the Obama administration,” Bolton told Klein.
Bolton also explained why Romney is taking time off of the campaign trail to fly 10 hours across the globe to visit Israel — because it draws a contrast with Obama who hasn’t visited since his time as a candidate.
“I think [Romney’s] simple presence in Israel says it all,” Bolton said, “Obama has been in office three and a half years and he has had time to do more fundraisers than any other first-term American president; has probably played more rounds of golf than any other president since Dwight Eisenhower. And yet he has not had time to fit into his busy schedule even one trip to Israel.”
