    Obama signs Israel military aid bill on eve of Romney visit

    On the eve of Mitt Romney's visit to Israel, President Barack Obama signed into law a military aid bill for that staunch American ally at a much-publicized White House ceremony that highlighted the political advantages of incumbency.
    OK, it's a good bill, but my point here is in the timing of this. Obama waits until the eve of Romney's visit to Israel to spring this on him. America's relationships should not be held hostage to political gamesmanship.

    Obama = Douche Bag!!

    this along with his major support for Israel's Iron Dome project, shows that he does indeed care about Israel & its security.

    Shows that progressivism is a Zionist project.

    Carry on.

    Not a fan of political gamesmanship in the realm of defense and international matters.

    Edit: Also seems it wasn't an isolated coincidence. From the article sourced in the OP:
    The signing ceremony, a relatively uncommon event in the Obama White House, fit a pattern this week of the administration trumpeting relations with Britain, Israel and Poland—the three countries on Romney's trip overseas to polish his diplomatic credentials.

    We shouldn't be giving anything to Israel,(notice that I said we).When you are in debt the last thing you should be doing is giving away money.Heck even when are not in debt we shouldn't be giving money away to any country. Let the Israelis take care of themselves.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Obama supports Israel, but he clearly signed this additional funding in order to get right-wing Jewish votes in Florida & other swing states.
