GOP Nominee 2012 - Who Will It Be?, Pt. 2

CBS, Sept. 20
Quote:
Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry on Tuesday called President Obama's Middle East policy "naïve, arrogant, misguided and dangerous," and said that as president, he would reaffirm US allegiance to Israel and withhold billions of dollars in aid to Palestine if it continues to seek United Nations recognition as an independent state. Perry was in New York City, home of the UN, during its annual General Assembly meeting on the same day that Obama was speaking there, hoping to contrast his views with those of Obama, who has been sometimes critical of Israel.

"There is no middle ground between our allies and those who seek their destruction," Perry said...to a crowd of about 80 people, mostly journalists, in a ballroom at the W Union Square Hotel. He was flanked by more than a dozen influential members of the New York Jewish community, including Assemblyman Dov Hikind and Rabbi Tzvi Weinreb. Also there were two Knesset members, Nissim Zeev, founder of the powerful Sephardic Shas Party, and Danny Danon, the deputy Knesset speaker.

...In meeting with reporters after his remarks, Perry said, "Israel is our oldest and most stable democratic ally in that region, and that is what this is about. I also, as a Christian, have a clear directive to support Israel. From my perspective, it's pretty easy, both as an American and as a Christian, I am going to stand with Israel."
Danon I mentioned in another thread a few days ago, he's an author of Israel's recently passed law banning political boycotts and an open opponent of a two-state solution. Zeev has proposed a network of 'rehabilitation' clinics for homosexuals throughout Israel. Hikind is a former lieutenant of the Jewish Defense League, a domestic terrorist group (classified as such by the FBI for their nasty habit of firebombing diplomatic facilities). Solomon Frager, whom Perry thanks in the transcript for organizing the event, is the chairman of the "Jerusalem Reclamation Project" which funds settlement-building in East Jerusalem. Nice vision of Jewish outreach he's got going there.

^ Perry will not play in the Northeast or the West Coast, period. doesn't matter if you're a right-leaning libertarian state like NH. he is totally foreign in a way that not even Bush could have approached.

I just :teehee: that Palin is ahead of Bachmann in that poll.

Local news here is being as kind as they can in talking about her campaign, what went wrong and if she can revive it.

This is going to be one entertaining primary season. It's really going to come down to the Blue State Republicans vs the Red State Republicans.

Are you on a phone or something deep? No offense..but the X Factor thing too.

It's just pathetic and sad, that they have any issue with Bachmann being a woman. Or maybe it's even more sad and pathetic that they put that above her obvious questionable views. So you can have those views, but not a vajayjay?

Your spelling sucks !!


Oh wait, you're making fun of those "GOPers, tea party, etc," that don't think "Ameerika is ready for a woman preesidant" yet voted to place Sarah Palin a heartbeat away from the presidency in 2008. And nominated all those women for the Senate, House and governorships in 2010.

Man, they are dumb.

vile. cheering the death penalty, cheering letting someone without insurance die, and booing American soldiers.

vile.

certainly not all Republicans are bigots, but they certainly do provide a safe space for them.

"Any type of sexual activity has no place in the military" -Santorum

That is an exact quote. What a weirdo.

Good thing these debates aren't in a small TV studio with no audience or you'd have no comment on them I guess.

At the least, at the very least, he should have thanked the soldier for his service. Santorum looked very bad.

The tea party is just about the economy, they are not bigots. Stay the course, keep blaming media.
