Romney on Israel: "Bibi, What Would You Like Me to Do?"

It is hard to read this as anything other than Mittens would give Israel a veto over American foreign policy in the Middle East:
In a telling exchange during a Republican debate in December, Romney criticized Gingrich for making a disparaging remark about Palestinians, declaring: "Before I made a statement of that nature, I'd get on the phone to my friend, Bibi Netanyahu, and say: 'Would it help if I say this? What would you like me to do?'"
This is about as odious as George Bush's (both father and son) coziness with the House of Saud.

I believe that American presidents should do what is in the best interest of this country. To put the interests of any other country before ours smacks of treason.

Republicans believe they represent Israel. And from something I wrote last year,

To listen to Republicans you would think they are Representatives of Israel and not of the American People. But, this shouldn't surprise anyone because Republicans long ago gave up representing the American People in favor of Oppressing them.

Here's Republican Joe Walsh of Illinois,
"The short answer is that most American Jews are liberal, and most American liberals side with the Palestinians and vague notions of “peace” instead of with Israel’s well being and security. Like the president, the U.N., and most of Europe, too many American Jews aren’t as pro-Israel as they should be."

Hey Joe, instead of worrying that "American Jews aren't as pro-Israel as they should be", why don't you concern yourself with the consistently failing Home Values of your constituents? But, Joe Walsh is a Teahadist Republican whose job is to throw verbal fire-bombs about President Obama and vote to give tax payer money to obscenely Rich Multi-National Oil Companies while at the same time cutting funding for reduced school lunches for the poor and destitute Americans in his District. Joe Walsh doesn't care about the people in his District.

Daniel Webster, Republican of Florida, went on a Good Life 45, a zealous televangelist program and declared,
"I love giving money to Israel. And so there’s a picture there that people realize that, we stop helping Israel, we lose God’s hand and we’re in big time trouble."

And then there is Michele Bachmann, verbal terrorist, the less quittier version of Sarah Palin, whom the Republicans love when she attacks President Obama or Liberals but fear because of her propensity to say out-right lies and make crazy unsubstantiated claims. In March 2010, Bachmann said,
"I am honored to be in a position where I can help Israel. I have a tremendous love for Israel, and great admiration for the Israeli people. I am a Christian, but I consider my heritage Jewish, because it is the foundation, the roots of my faith as a Christian."
