Here’s Dollar Bill, speaking for Greenwich Democrats and seemingly the National Democratic Party itself, on Israel:
Obama gave a good kick in the pants to Bibi, called his bluf\f, and said no time for you. Good. It’s about time he stood up to his bullying. Bibi’s nothing but trouble, If Israel wants to gin up a war with Iran,, they should go fight it (and pay for it) themselves, and stop dragging us into their costly never ending confilcts with the Muslim world, which soil our reputation and bring us nothing but grief, loss of life and treasure. . Of course, the Mittster is primed to be Bibi’s lapdog, should he be elected, as his foreign policy wigs are all warmed over neocons who dragged us into the last debacle in Iraq, and have learned absolutely nothing from their failures …..talk about an apology tour, Mitt and Ryan are the tourguides par excellence
And here, just hours after Dollar Bill weighed in, is the White House’s response to their angry Jewish base:
Now if Dollar Bill can see the truth, and applaud it, how can American Jews be so blind? How can they be so easily bought off and placated by an out-right lie from their President? No, this isn’t Germany in 1936, but the same pattern of suspension of disbelief and a hopeful denial of what’s happening right in front of their eyes seems familiar.
UPDATE, cognitive dissonance department: Aging Diane von Furstenberg wants no Republicans in her stores. This Jewish daughter of a Holocaust survivor who got rich by marrying a prince and assuming his name so she could sell dresses to the 0.1% crowd now wants to restrict her sales to rich Democrat ladies only? I wonder if Dollar Bill’s wife will still be welcome?
