The question of if any of these GOP Candidates is electable remains to be seen. Other than Ron Paul they are all better than the mindless Obama.
Newt Gingrich has articulated a basic truth about Palestine. There is no such animal as a Palestinian. There are people who live there much like the residents of NJ with less history and less achievement. However, the notion that there is a NJ nationality is ludicrious given that the residents of NJ are not that different from adjacent areas. The residents of NJ are almost entirely unrelated to Deleware Indians. The residents of NJ are mostly peaceful and do not go around smacking planes into office buildings and blowing up pizzerias. You may get an arson or two for insurance from some criminal but that is it.
The Palestine obsession on the left is a polite way for folks like Ducky to say death to the Jews without a Nazi logo. No doubt there are honest people on the left like Jams who wants to see genuine peace in the Middle East. The way you tell the difference between the honest Jams and the obsessed Ducky is tone and frequency. You never ever hear disrespect for the Holocaust or Jew/Nazi comparisons from Jams. In fact you never hear anything resembling a racial or ethnic slur from Jams. You hear those regularly from Ducky who thinks it is okay to call Black politicians he does not like Aunt Jemimah.
Now some of you point out that many of those on the left who are the most rabid Pseudostinian
advocates have Jewish ancestry. Norman Finklestein leaves out that he was a Maoist and calls himself a Green. Noam Chomsky calls himself an anarchist who stews in a hatred of Capitalism
24/7 while wearing Pom Poms for Pol Pot. If you go down the list you will see anarchists, communists, Marxists and Greens. Their worldview makes any claim of Judaism secondary to overthrowing Capitalism.
Now there are some of you out there who point out the Paulites do not fit this description. Paulites do make common cause with Communists and Anarchists at Nuremberg style Peace Protests and the soap challenged Occupy Events.
In reality we may go down the drain like Goldwater with Newt. The media will be attacking 24/7
and covering up the Obama record. Newt or whomever else must ask has Obama done anything.
Do you feel America becoming an economic disaster? What has Obama actually done in four years?
