From the primaries to the debates, there have been plenty of missteps during the 2012 election season. Take a look back at some of the most notable faux pas.

Mitt Romney
8 / 17

Presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign had several missteps during a European tour in August.

He said Israel’s economy was doing better than Palestine’s due to its culture, angering Palestinians. And to top things off, an aide cursed at reporters as they shouted questions about these gaffes to Romney outside Poland’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
