From The Huffington Post:
Jonny Daniels, a leading Republican political strategist in Israel, told The Huffington Post that the campaign had been aware of the date of the holiday when it scheduled the fundraiser. The campaign thought it could hold the event in a way that would not offend, he said, but was taken by surprise at the ferocity of the public outcry over the timing.
“It wasn’t really a gaffe,” Daniels said. “They knew what the day was, but they were looking for the correct time and circumstance to do it. Instead it ended up seeming like a big dinner, but that’s not really what it is.”
“Don’t worry, they’re not going to not have a fundraiser,” he added. “They’ll find a way around it maybe by having a breaking of the fast meal combined with a Romney fundraiser.”
Let me ask you a question… if the DNC had a leading political strategist in Mexico of Kenya, what do you think the out cry would be?
When you elections are decided in another country, friends, you aren’t free.
