A Busy Week for AIPAC
An A-list of political celebrities lined up to address this year's conference of the American Israel Political Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Following a less than amicable meeting between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, 3 of the 4 Republican Presidential candidates made time in their busy schedules to appear before conference delegates on Super Tuesday and assure them of their support:
AIPAC members had themselves a very busy week.
Every politician in the country went to speak;
(Okay, that's hyperbole, but that was how it seemed)
And it grew more bellicose than most of us had dreamed
Israel's Prime Minister expressed a lot of fear;
He believes Iran's a danger - present, now, and clear.
Netanyahu wouldn't promise he would not attack.
Every candidate but Paul has said they've got his back.
I think Netanyahu's playing quite a scary game;
Raising stakes and saying that Obama is to blame
For the rising tensions we've been feeling from Iran.
I bet that the President's frustrated with the man.
Even though Obama has assured he doesn't bluff
Israel's Prime Minister continued talking tough;
Bidding up the ante through the many threats he's made.
With the cards he's holding, I believe he's overplayed.
Again, sincere apologies for inflicting my Dr. Seussilitis on you. I will continue to make every effort to curb the symptoms, but I despair of being successful. Speaking of despair of being successful; Senator John McCain (R)AZ is calling for U.S. air strikes on Syria. Please! Don't get me started on Syria.
