Playing the Holocaust Card: Will Romney Visit Auschwitz?

Mitt Romney is now embarked on his highly touted international tour.  Find Full Article Here:-
The first reactions to Romney’s diplomatic charm offensive were surprisingly negative.  Romney insulted the British when he suggested that London was not prepared to hold the Olympic Games.  
Led by Fleet Street, a feeding frenzy ensued that pulverized Romney far more brutally than anything he had experienced to date.  Even Rupert Murdoch’s flagship newspaper, The Sun, (daily circulation 5 million) proclaimed Romney to be:  “Mitt the Twit.”
David Cameron, the Conservative Prime Minister blasted Romney for insulting the British Olympics, and Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London (another Conservative) held Romney up for ridicule before an audience of 60,000 Londoners at the new Olympic Stadium.  The Cameron and Johnson statements received massive media coverage.  “Mitt the Twit” was labeled “Nowhere Man” for bragging about his Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City – described as “in the middle of nowhere” by Prime Minister David Cameron, and Romney crawled back into his shell.
Now in Israel, Romney enjoyed a warm welcome with a massive interview in the tiny nation’s largest newspaper, Israel Hayom, that is owned by his major financial backer, the controversial American casino billionaire, Sheldon Adelson.  Of course, Romney effectively pledged himself to war with Iran to please the current right-wing coalition that governs Israel.  Adelson is a major financial backer of Binyamin Netanyahu and his party, Likud, so the political fit is far more comfortable for Romney than Britain.
While Romney’s political intentions in both Britain (the Olympics) and Israel are clear, the reason for his visit to Poland is still somewhat obscure. In fact, the central reason for Romney’s plan to visit Poland has been kept totally under wraps to date.
