Cutting Through The Crap

Outsourcing


Never let a good pander be held back by reason. From the latest debate:

“The best way to have peace in the Middle East is not for us to vacillate and to appease, but is to say we stand with our friend Israel; we are committed to a Jewish state in Israel; we will not have an inch of difference between ourselves and our ally Israel.”

Gingrich then surprised the audience: “Governor Romney is exactly right,” he said, adding that in his opinion, the Palestinians were to blame for the prolonged stalemate in the peace process.



I'm no expert on Middle East politics; and I admit that, bearing as I do certain genes of long standing, I'm inclined to think Israel has a right to exist and that, other than by existing, it didn't start the never-ending hostilities there. Still, there are many policies Israel has undertaken with which I strongly disagree; and I'd think our government ought to reserve the right to disagree with any ally when facts warrant it. Not to mention turning the screws, if needed, to get parties talking.

So it's sorta funny, isn't it, that the same people who lie that Obama takes his orders from European capitals (mostly run of late, ironically enough, by right-leaning leaders to whose policies all the R candidates aspire), who've reacted with outrage when judges refer in any way to the laws of other lands, are willing explicitly to cede all policy-making in the Middle East to the Israeli government. "Not an inch of difference" doesn't leave much room, does it? If Bibi says it, we'll be for it, no questions asked; so say the leading contenders for R leadership, patriots all.

Exceptional America first.

With exceptions.

My only Beef with the Homeland is they don't take out MORE A-rabs.

I'm pretty sure Bibi just said Israel can handle it without us in front of the entire U.S. Congress. After BHO tried to start negotiations with the pre-1967 borders, I can't blame him.
