Grateful Dead Reunite for Barack Obama Benefit Show

Obama's got his mojo working, apparently, if he can inspire the Dead to perform again. It still doesn't cancel out his subservience to AIPAC.

In one debate, he accused Hillary of a willingness to say anything to get elected. The question is, does Obama do the same? Does he pander to Israel just to get elected, or is he just the softer side of Neocon?

Here he is at the AIPAC Policy Conference on March 2, 2007, in Chicago:

As the U.S. redeploys from Iraq, we can recapture lost influence in the Middle East. We can refocus our efforts to critical, yet neglected priorities, such as combating international terrorism and winning the war in Afghanistan. And we can, then, more effectively deal with one of the greatest threats to the United States, Israel and world peace: Iran.

Iran’s President Ahmadinejad’s regime is a threat to all of us.

Uh, no, it's not.

On Iraq, he tells them not to worry about his "opposition" to the Iraq invasion, it was merely his concern that "giving this [my emphasis] President the open-ended authority to invade Iraq would lead to the open-ended occupation we find ourselves in today." Yep, war crimes are okay if they are properly managed. I'm the President to do that for you.

Read the whole thing. There's not one thought that doesn't originate from Israel.

I hate it when a politician panders, particularly one I support. But the fact is they have to kow-tow to AIPAC or not get elected. And for that matter, there are worse things than not getting elected. I'd say screw AIPAC but on your blog, but...
I suppose any politician is going to have to answer to one criminal organization or another, but to have an Israeli criminal organization calling the shots is a bit much, as is the general acceptance of such.

At any rate, I feel like an idiot trying to talk about presidential politics, as they are so divorced from reality. It's like trying to pretend I find great import in the latest fashion trends.
I wholeheartedly agree, and wish we could all walk around naked.
Becareful what you wish for, marclord, you obviously haven't seen Bruce in person...
