Netanyahu Slipping In The Polls, Tehran Tom And AIPAC

Benjamin Netanyahu Addresses U.S. CongressCourtesy of Talking Points Memo:

I had meant to write this post Monday or Tuesday. But odds and ends and a business trip got in the way. As it happens, another twenty-four hours has only increased the signs that, with less than a week to go before the Israeli elections, Netanyahu is slipping and perhaps in real danger of being ousted as Prime Minister.

As we noted last week, the initial polls after the Prime Minister’s speech to Congress painted an equivocal picture: perhaps a very small bump of support but one that seemed to subside quickly and still leave the Zionist Camp/Labor Party with the slenderest of leads. But over the weekend something changed.

    Usually, I’m not a big fan of polls…..but let hope the good folks of Israel follow through on these prognostications come election day.

    Also, Tom Cotton is the LAST THING America and the World needs, he just reeks another George W. Bush, which behind that “aw-shucks” good ol’ boy charade is war mongering puppet of the neo-conservative vampires. And what is every more scarier is that he has blind, ruthless political ambitions, he’s the type of snake that should never hold any position of power.

    Lets hope for the good of the country, America finally wakes up before it’s too late.

      His cohorts are seeking to blaze the trail for 2020…….

      A lawmaker back in Tom Cotton’s home state of Arkansas who wants to make sure the freshman Republican senator can run for reelection and the presidency at the same time in 2020 has introduced a bill that would allow House and Senate candidates to also appear on the ballot for president or vice president.
      “Tom Cotton would be my current idea of someone who should be afforded this opportunity. Politics, if I’ve learned anything, it changes every day and there could be the great next hope show up tomorrow,” Republican state Sen. Bart Hester told reporters Tuesday, according to The Associated Press. “But I don’t think it’s reasonable to say I wouldn’t be looking at Tom Cotton to have that opportunity.”

    “But Sheldon Adelson was not only sitting in the House gallery on Tuesday, March 3 because of the strings he pulls here in the United States. He is also the Daddy Warbucks of Israel, and Benjamin Netanyahu is yet another of his beneficiaries — not to mention an ideological soulmate. Although campaign finance reform laws are much more strict in Israel than here in the United States, Adelson’s wealth has bought him what the historian and journalist Gershom Gorenberg calls “uniquely pernicious” influence.”

    The problem with repubs/TPers is they think they are the smartrest guys in the room, and they are NOT. Every leader in Iran is extremely well educated, mostly in the Western world. They speak English very well. They follow US politics, and know what is going on with the hatred of the “right” for President Obama. Keep in mind that Cantor thought he was a shoo in for reelection, and he LOST, after being the Jewish golden boy. Hopefully Cotton will end up the same way. Cantor had aspirations for the WH also, too!! The gop thinks they have people fooled, but even from as far away as Iran, smart people KNOW what their motications are. Joni Ernst, the pig castrator, signed that letter, and it could be a disaster for her. She is an officer in the military, and it is against the law to disparage the sitting President. Hopefully she will lose her rank, plus face prison. I doubt she will be allowed to keep that helmet wig on in prison, don’t you?

    “Many would agree with what I have just observed, but few recognize the role of the special relationship with Israel in shaping what the United States has become. Quite frankly, the relationship is both lopsided in terms of favoring perceived Israeli interests as well as being terrible for the long suffering Palestinians, very bad for the United States as it damages the American brand worldwide and even bad for Israel as it enables its governments to act in ways that are ill advised and ultimately self-defeating.”

    Over at Politicalgates, Kathleen is reporting that Bristol Palin and Dakota Meyer are engaged.

    I wonder how long Dakota will allow Quitter to exploit him…

  7. Scarsdale says:

    He had better have DNA tests done after this baby is born. She was with Joey Junker a few weeks ago. Meyer has PTSD, no telling what will happen if she crosses him.

  8. MemphisNY says:

    He will let her exploit him forever. He made ONE good decision. He is an asshole that should be court martialed just like Joni Ernst. The photo with her mother was a bad decision. He is not a hero in my mind. Semper Fi Marine Mom
