    You know you have a very good point. The few. But I think that even as this poll would indicate, as well as other polls regarding Israel, Americans are migrating, albeit slowly, away from the long term position of basically unconditional support. And, it's questionable that even strident supporters of Israel, can't handle a bit of scrutiny and criticism, for nobodies always good, or right. And of course the opposite would stand.

    This poll is based on a false narrative.

    They really don't care. Like-minded misfits will somehow gravitate to each other and use whatever means they can to justify their bent leanings. ISIS does the same through the Internet.

    ,,,On Tuesday morning, as Secretary of State John F. Kerry meets with his counterparts in Switzerland to try to complete a framework accord with Iran by the end of March, Netanyahu will stand at the lectern in Congress to tell Americans, essentially, that President Obama is either foolhardy or weak and about to sign a deal with the devil.

    ...Senior administration officials say an imperfect agreement that freezes Iran’s nuclear ambitions and allows for monitoring leaves the world in a much safer place than a rogue Iran with the potential to rush toward a bomb in clandestine bunkers packed with centrifuges.

    ,,,Netanyahu does not believe this. The Israeli leader has brushed aside appeals by Jewish leaders in the United States, congressional Democrats and some of his allies at home to pull back and find a face-saving way to cancel the speech. Netanyahu

    We've paid Iran a billion dollars to keep taking to us, and they gladly do it because it buys them time to continue developing their nuke program.

    We're just stupid.

    Sorry I missed your post.

    You are right and Blacks vote the same way.

    I have no idea why this is so, given the way the Democrats have traditionally treated both groups. Habit? Tradition? Better opportunities for career advancement? It doesn't really make any sense.

    This whole affair is yet another indicator of just how incompetent this administration is. First they shgit themselves over this, then they got all the other mindless lefty groups to **** themselves over it, they have gone out of their way to create an adversarial relationship with Israel...and for what? Holy crap...how tough would it have been for him to say..."huh...well...we dont necessarily agree to the way it was handled but good on him. I hope he enjoys his stay. We'll offer comments after the speech. Enjoy your evening everyone and please...try the pie."

    Nonsense. Just how many tea party members hold office in the House? It's like saying the dems were held in the clutches of the Green party.
