Hillary supports Israel – Media breaks out tomtoms against her (again)

So Hillary tried to get the Palestinian government to agree to come back to the table and allow Israel to continue organic growth. Palestinians said no. Then  she went to Israel and praised the Israelis for their cooperation and willingness to come to the table.

So the Palestinians ran crying to all their outlets and connections and lo and behold the media reported Hillary Stopping Peace Talks!! This despite the fact that Hillary said nothing Obama has not said himself! Clearly Team TOTUS backed down when the Palestinians whined at him, but don’t blame the SoS people, come on!

On a one-day Middle East visit on Saturday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton endorsed Israel’s view that settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank should not be a bar to resuming negotiations — contradicting the Palestinian position.

Netanyahu has proposed limiting building for now to some 3,000 settler homes already approved by Israel in the West Bank. He does not regard building in occupied East Jerusalem, annexed in defiance of international opposition, as settlement.

U.S. President Barack Obama himself, after persuading Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in September to meet Netanyahu in New York, called only for “restraint” in settlement, not the “freeze” he had previously proposed.

Then the neocons and CDS afflicted along with TOTUS cheerleaders who are the anti-Clintons at any given opportunity ran with Obama lede ‘Hillary Incompetent!”. Were I the conservatives,  I would question why I was on the same side as the media in this one when Hillary is the best ally Israel has in this Administration

As a Dem and a Catholic and an American, one of my big problems with Obama was his wishy-washy support of Israel, thus my joy when Hillary said as plain as anyone could possibly be during the primary debates, that if Iran attacked Israel we would ‘wipe them off the map.”. I like that kind of clarity and leadership in, you know, a LEADER.

Sadly some of the GOP and conservative outlets are jumping on board with a ‘Hillary is incompetent’ meme, which does absolutely nothing to further their agenda and in fact alienates moderates such as myself.

I call bullshxt.

Hillary knows EXACTLY where America should stand on Israel. She knows exactly where our military stands on Israel, She knows exactly where she stands on Israel. The thing no one knows day to day is where OBAMA stands. Don’t blame the messenger.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki, speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the Marrakesh conference, said while they were surprised to see Clinton’s statement in Jerusalem, and thought it was inconsistent with what Clinton told them in Abu Dhabi earlier Saturday, they are happy the position has been clarified and brought back into line with their understanding. He also said that the Palestinian Authority is happy that Obama has made the Israeli Palestinian issue and the creation of a Palestinian state a priority and they believe in him and his sincerity.

Look, clearly Hillary is not as good as Obama at being everything to everyone and appearing to agree with everyone, and everyone leaving him believing he is in complete agreement with them on everything. That is a good thing IMO, and for Hillary it is again IMO because she actually COMMITS to things, her husband, her party, her positions. She isn’t the tabula rasa Obama is, glad handing everyone and letting everyone see what they want.  So in that sense people like the Palestinian leadership and the Russians are simply not going to get what they want from her, or what they got from TOTUS,. And no doubt that is one large reason the cabal of dunces in the DEM leadership like Pelosi and Dean SELECTED Barack as the nominee over Hillary, she is tough, he rolls over.

Anyone who doubts that Hillary supports Israel, and that she is quite competent and decisive simply has not been paying attention.

I hope the conservatives and GOP do not allow CDS to sweep them into banging tomtoms and doing the mowmow on Hillary.

There is a REASON OBAMA WANTS HILLARY UNDERMINED NOW.

HILLARY AND GATES ARE THE TWO VOICES IN THE ADMINISTRATION WHO WHOLEHEARTEDLY SUPPORT A FULL TROOP BUILD UP IN AFGHANISTAN.

PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW THE MEDIA OR TEAM TOTUS TO UNDERMINE ONE OF THE STRONGEST PRO MILITARY, PRO TROOP BUILDUP VOICES IN THIS ADMINISTRATION.

Obama and Kerry could never handle this aggressive questioning in Pakistan. Hillary’s mission there was to speak to all the Pakistani people and press and government and try to assure them our presence, and drone attacks, and military buildup and our bill (Kerry Lugar) are well intentioned. We NEED Pakistan to trust us to stay (something hard to convince them of under the guidance of our dear leader who is himself MIA on the troop buildup) and to give us the intelligence we need to work against the Taliban and Al Qaeda.

Update: ‘Disillusioned liberals yearn for Hillary’; Gallup shows Hillary now more popular than Obama; so the media hounds immediately try to tear her down…

hillaryrain

Update: Told ya so. And let me add Hillary was also a free market capitalist, a big frakkin plus!

Chris Stirewalt:

Where were you when you came to the panicky realization that Hillary Clinton was right?

For me, it was while driving to work one recent morning and talking with a colleague about the state of the health legislation. I was explaining how the Obama plan wasn’t really about universal coverage but rather cutting a deal with the insurance industry and then making it look good for liberals. I paused, realizing that I had just repeated, almost verbatim, the lines that Clinton used to bludgeon  then-Sen. Barack Obama during the Democratic primaries.

As they debated in Cleveland — the nastiest of their one-on-one matchups after John Edwards dropped out to spend more time with his families — Clinton charged that Obama wouldn’t play tough enough and would get rolled by the insurance industry. Her words came back to me: “Senator Obama’s plan does not cover everyone. It would leave, give or take, 15 million people out.”

I expected to look into the rearview mirror and see her sitting in the back seat cackling and wearing that suit that looked like it had been plucked from the wardrobe trailer of “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”….

…That’s why so many liberals are now remembering Clinton’s other line from the Ohio primary of March 2008: “Shame on you, Barack Obama.”

Most conservatives had their moment of regret for Clinton’s loss long ago when they realized that Obama was completely out his depth….For those on the Right chiefly concerned with foreign policy, the lament about Clinton’s miserable campaign continues to deepen. They believe that radical Islam and Vladimir Putin will prove to be tougher adversaries than the insurance industry and the senior senator from Maine. The defense-minded Right is still thinking about the 3 a.m. call, and not the one from the Nobel Committee….

But conservatives know that they never would have had a chance with Clinton. Where Obama has overfilled his plate like a kid at Thanksgiving dinner and now stares at an unappetizing mountain of cold mashed potatoes, Clinton would have taken measured bites and finished the whole feast….

…But had she won, there’s no doubt that she would have ground up the bones of her enemies and baked chocolate chip cookies with them. Obama, though, has proven to be the only person who could make the GOP look reasonable again after the misadventures of the Bush years. Conservatives can console themselves with the thought of 2010 and beyond.

For liberals, though, the strange, sad longing for the woman they rejected has only just begun.

APTOPIX Democrats Unions
So this morning we find in GALLUP that Hillary is now more popular than Obama. Coincidentally the Daily Beast which has ignored Hillary’s succesful work on the Armenia/Turkey accords and in No Ireland, suddenly picks up a story from a Hillary basher overseas suggesting Hill is making up ‘bosnia’ like stories again. What utter TOOLZ FOR TOTUS!!

A new Gallup poll shows that the number of people who have a favorable impression of Barack Obama has fallen to its lowest point since he became president. Fifty-six percent say they have a favorable impression of Obama, versus 40 percent who say they have an unfavorable impression. (Four percent say they have no opinion.) Historically, a president’s personal favorable rating has often been higher than his job approval rating; right now, Gallup has Obama’s job approval at 52 percent.

…Gallup points out that in this latest survey, Hillary Clinton is now more popular than Obama. Sixty-two percent say they have a favorable impression of the Secretary of State, versus 34 percent who have an unfavorable impression. That’s a big change from the height of the battle for the Democratic nomination last year; in February 2008, just 48 percent had a favorable impression of Mrs. Clinton, versus 49 percent who had an unfavorable impression.

Gore Vidal sorry he backed Obama over Hillary, says we will have military dictatorship in US soon…

Another one who made the WRONG decision. At least Gore Vidal is man enough to admit it (UPDATE: Unlike Kathleen SNOB Parker who whines about him after loudly proclaiming him The Bomb in snob speak for over a year. I am still convinced Parker and the OTHER Snob, the lefty SNOB Sally Quinn were separated at birth or something, both utter idiots with an intellectual lisp):

UKTimes:

(…)Last year he famously switched allegiance from Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama during the Democratic nomination process for president. Now, he reveals, he regrets his change of heart. How’s Obama doing? “Dreadfully. I was hopeful. He was the most intelligent person we’ve had in that position for a long time. But he’s inexperienced. He has a total inability to understand military matters. ..”

...Vidal now believes, as he did originally, Clinton would be the better president. “Hillary knows more about the world and what to do with the generals. History has proven when the girls get involved, they’re good at it. Elizabeth I knew Raleigh would be a good man to give a ship to.”The Republicans will win the next election, Vidal believes; though for him there is little difference between the parties.

…We’ll have a military dictatorship fairly soon, on the basis that nobody else can hold everything together….

Since I disagree with every other word Vidal said you can go read the rest if you are so inclined. I do NOT believe Americans are ignorant as Vidal does. I believe we are SICK AND TIRED of intellectuals thinking they know better and telling us how to live our daily lives. Gore Vidal is one of them. Funny how despite all their ‘smarts’ they bet on the wrong horse much to all of our dismay…
