The Republican Obsession

While Hagel didn't cover himself in glory during the confirmation hearing Lindsey Graham made a complete fool of himself over the business of whether or not the Jewish Lobby intimidates the clown in congress or not. I love it, 178 mentions of Israel and 170 for Iran and damn few for anyone else. Anyone who says that US foreign policy isn't dominated by the Jewish Lobby and it centered primarily on the Middle East at the expense of everything else is either deluded as hell or a liar. For once I would love to see someone tell the Lobby to go straight to hell that America comes first and Israel isn't even on the list of priorities, the US has more important business to tend to.

Another person who made a fool of himself was that Ted Cruz with those selectively edited and hard to understand audio tapes he played. I'm not sure if Cruz has been to Israel yet or not to receive his US subsidize lobotomy, but if he hasn't he didn't waste anytime to demonstrate that he would serve as a replacement lackey for Senator Senile, John McCain.

Gotta' agree about Amnesty Juan McVain...

He helped cause the growing problem of tolerating, even encouraging, the ILLEGAL alien invasion, and the neoCONS/Pan-Israeli's play him like a Stradivarius. He also ASSURED the election of Obama in 2008, while snagging a cool 29% of the Hispanic vote that he had sold his soul for, and sold America out for. He is known to be dense as well.

I've noticed over the years that the loudest mouthpieces for Israel on Capitol Hill also tend to be the same ones who support amnesty for illegals and more H-1B visas. I reckon in their eyes the Americans who find themselves unemployed can always join the military.

I imagine Cruz got the message during his Harvard days.

If last week's hearing for Chuck Hagel raised questions about his capacity to be secretary of defense, the show trial conducted by his inquisitors on the tribunal raised questions about the GOP.

Is the Republican Party, as currently constituted, even capable of conducting a foreign policy befitting a world power? Or has it learned nothing and forgotten nothing since George W. Bush went home and the nation rejected John McCain for Barack Obama?

Consider the great foreign issues on the front burner today.
