Obama in 2008: Jerusalem Will Remain the Capital of Israel

There’s a bit of a kerfuffle going on regarding Jerusalem these days. Last Thursday, Press Secretary Jay Carney refused to say which city is the capital of Israel.

Then, when Mitt Romney was in Israel as part of his international tour, he boldly stated that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. According to a White House spokesman, however - Romney is wrong:

“Our view is that that [Romney’s position] is a different position than this administration holds. It’s the view of this administration that the capital should be determined in final status negotiations between parties,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters Monday.

“I would remind you that that is the position that has been held by previous administrations both Democratic and Republican. So, if Mr. Romney disagrees with that position, he is also disagreeing with positions taken by previous presidents like Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan,” Earnest added.

The only problem? Candidate Obama's position was different. Via The Blaze:

In 2008, when Obama was running for president, he made it clear that he believed then that the city was a part of Israel, as we noted in a previous post. The presidential hopeful made this stance so clear that he even contended that Jerusalemmust remain Israel’s capital, even at the end of the negotiation process.

At the time, Obama said that any agreement with the Palestinians, “must preserve Israel’s identity as a Jewish state with secure, recognized, defensible borders. And Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided.”

Apparently, President Obama’s position on this has 'evolved.'
