something about this feels wrong to me:http://content.usatoday.com/communities/onpolitics/post/2012/07/mitt-romney-fundraiser-israel-dick-cheney/1#.T_93HfWDl8E
Mitt Romney is reportedly planning a fundraiser in Jerusalem during his visit to Israel later this month.
The Jerusalem Post reports that donors will be charged "$60,000 or more per plate" at the event. Romney is jointly raising money with the Republican National Committee, and $75,000 is the maximum donation to the Romney Victory Fund.
Romney is scheduled to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, among others, during his trip. The Israel visit will come after Romney attends the Summer Olympics in London.
Romney has frequently criticized President Obama for his handling of Middle East affairs, especially the United States' relationship with Israel. In 2008, Obama received 78% of the Jewish vote, according to surveys of voters as they left their polling places.
now I understand wanting to appeal to the Jewish voters (plus any money raised will probably be just a drop in the bucket, especially what is put towards his election fund), but shouldn't fundraising for any US political party come from US sources, and not overseas? I'm sure both sides get plenty from outside the US, and I'm probably just being naive about it, but it just doesn't feel right.
