    Does Obama's Israel Policy Mean a 2012 GOP Win?

    We have heard a great deal of talk in recent days about how the GOP doesn't have a "serious" candidate. Compared to the GOP class of 2016, that may be true. But does the left have a serious candidate? Nevermind Obama's failed economic policies. Does his new anti-Israel policy of land ransoms to terrorist groups spell the end of his chances for re-election? Is it time for Democrats to find a pro-Israel candidate and hold a primary?

    Obama's Israel policy, emotional as the debate might be for some, I believe will have little to do with the 2012 election. At the end of the day people are still focused on the economy, and for those looking to the GOP, a viable candidate that is capable of beating Obama (I think the most likely option is Daniels).
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Re: Does Obama's Israel Policy Mean a 2012 GOP Win?

    Wow, another bogus poll from a conservative. What a surprise!

    The thread title: Does Obama's Israel Policy Mean a 2012 GOP Win?

    The poll question: Do the Democrats have a serious candidate for 2012?

    Maybe the the thread title and the poll question could be the same?

    But more important, the options should not be at the level of "How much do my political opponents suck?" with choices of "A lot", "A Helluva lot", "A really, really large amount", and, "Total suckage."

    It seems as if conservatives are an incurious bunch. Heaven forbid that reality conflict with their preconceived conclusions.

    Since President Obama has no problem going back on what he says, I'm sure he'll have plenty of time to mend fences with the big money donors from the Pro-Israel lobby.

    1. No.
    2. I see no evidence that he isn't "pro-Israel".

    isn't it interesting that Democrats are now defending Obama....... by arguing that he is Bush?

    What Obama is doing is addressing a problem no one wants adressed. I dont care about it personally and think he has more important things to talk about than a few acres of land.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
