One politician with a deep commtment to Israel and a heavily Jewish constituency is Congresswoman and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. Over the weekend, she endorsed the Iran deal.
If you don’t support it, or remain a bit unsure, I’d urge you to read her Miami Herald op-ed.
Enlightening, too — if dismaying — are the comments it elicited.
The first that comes up is from a retired Ashland, Kentucky man who reasons (in full):
What a moron!
He is followed by someone named Bruce Welt, a professor of agriculture and biological engineering at the University of Florida, who counters the Congresswoman’s arguments with:
The Democrat Party is vile, evil and immoral. Anyone supporting this idiotic and irresponsible concesssion to Iran must be shamed, punished and then ignored. The entire Democrat Party must be shamed, punished and ignored. DWS disgusts humanity.
As do, it presumably follows, the 340 rabbis, 60 national security leaders, 100+ former ambassadors, George H.W. Bush’s former National Security Advisor, and all the others I’ve linked to — Republicans and Democrats — who also support the deal. They all apparently “disgust humanity,” according to professor Welt.
And someone named John Nelson reasons:
Congratulations. The Democratic Party goes down in history alongside incompetent fools such as Neville Chamberlain. Thanks to your wilfull ignorance, our servicemen and women will face fully re-armed and nuclear equipped Islamo-Nazis.
Oh! And this just in: an extensive list of top-ranking Israeli military brass who urge Prime Minister Netanyahu to accept the deal.
That not a single Republican in the House or Senate agrees with Colin Powell, who has strongly endorsed the deal, or with Republicans like former Senate Armed Services Chair John Warner, is dismaying on so many levels. What has happened to the Republican Party?
Quote of the Day
A penny saved may be a penny earned, but it's one boring penny. A penny invested, on the other hand, bounces around. It gets bigger one day, smaller the next. A bit player in the drama of global finance, that penny buys a guy a balcony seat in the theater of macroeconomics.~Susan Stewart
