2007: Mitt Romney said Hezbollah-style healthcare would be good for America

Remember Hezbollah? The same Hezbollah who bombed a U.S. Embassy as well as the U.S. Marines barracks in Beirut?

Yes, THAT Hezbollah. What Hezbollah did was essentially provide  government health care for the people of southern Lebanon, which Mitt thought was a great idea.

Crooks & Liars (H/R Robert W)  Romney: “Did you notice in Lebanon, what Hezbollah did? Lebanon became a democracy some time ago and while their government was getting underway, terror group Hezbollah went into southern Lebanon and provided health clinics to some of the people there, and schools. And they built their support there by having done so. That kind of diplomacy is something that would help America become stronger around the world and help people understand that our interest is an interest towards modernity and goodness and freedom for all people in the world. And so, I want to see America carry out that kind of health diplomacy...”

I guess that means FREE female genital mutilation, rehab for flogging victims, pre-natal care for 4 wives, burials for honor-killed women…
