The Clinton/Trump AIPAC ‘Pander-Off’

this is pretty common stuff for neocons and islamophobes alike -- painting the Israelis as saints, and all their enemies as the ONLY sinners.

For instance, former Secretary of State Clinton depicted Israel as entirely an innocent victim in the Mideast conflicts. “As we gather here, three evolving threats — Iran’s continued aggression, a rising tide of extremism across a wide arc of instability, and the growing effort to de-legitimize Israel on the world stage — are converging to make the U.S.-Israel alliance more indispensable than ever,” she declared.

“The United States and Israel must be closer than ever, stronger than ever and more determined than ever to prevail against our common adversaries and to advance our shared values. … This is especially true at a time when Israel faces brutal terrorist stabbings, shootings and vehicle attacks at home. Parents worry about letting their children walk down the street. Families live in fear.”

Yet, Clinton made no reference to Palestinian parents who worry about their children walking down the street or playing on a beach and facing the possibility of sudden death from an Israeli drone or warplane. Instead, she scolded Palestinian adults. “Palestinian leaders need to stop inciting violence, stop celebrating terrorists as martyrs and stop paying rewards to their families,” she said.

Then, Clinton promised to put her future administration at the service of the Israeli government, asking: “The first choice is this: are we prepared to take the U.S./Israel alliance to the next level?”

Hillary Clinton goes full Neocon at AIPAC, Demonizes Iran, Palestinians


but Bernie's the bad guy for not rubbing elbows with the warmongers.

So HC loves dirty coal too eh


I'd bet the planet would like to vote against her too

The "Bernie is unelectable" meme is hogwash

and as certain as Bill Clinton's claims about Iraq wmd.

AWK AWK he's gonna wither under the concerted assault of rightwingnuts!!!!

AWK AWK the polls taken now are useless because no one knows he's a closet socialist!!!

and related to that is the false assumption imo, that there are more dirt and skeletons that will be of concern to the voters, in the Sanders closet.

What seems to be missing from the various "electibility" concerns is the undeniable fact that it's not like the opposition is "clean".

for example -- who here wants to try to make the case that without grossly and demonstrably lying, that Bernie can be burned to the extent that Trump can by the uncontested/undeniable in his record?

Last week, Sam Stein reported for the Huffington Post that none of his GOP rivals had even “completed a major anti-Trump opposition research effort.” When Trump gets to the general election, that’s going to change. Voters are going to hear plenty about not only his many bankruptcies, but also his fraudulent scams, mob ties, shady licensing deals, tax avoidance schemes and hypocritical embrace of immigrant workers for their cheap labor. Journalist Wayne Barrett has reported that some of his past associates – “I’ll hire the best people, they’ll give me the best advice” — have been caught up in drug smuggling, trafficking underage girls and various stock market swindles. We’ll hear all about the Japanese gambler who stiffed him for $4 million – “they’re stealing our money!’ – and the Mexican sweatshop workers who make his ‘Make America Great’ hats. So far, he’s gotten a pass on his supposed business acumen, but in a general election we’ll hear all about how he’d be richer today if he’d just invested his money in the stock market and spent the past 30 years lounging on a beach somewhere. http://www.rawstory.com/2016/03/donald-trump-should-enjoy-his-super-tuesday-win-because-hes-going-to-be-crushed/

Hillary does it again


that expression on her face is quite telling and priceless, no, reeking of indignation as it does.

Gee, Bernie hands them a mic and commits a mortal sin, while she looks down her nose at them and....
