... and speaking of “spin,” within the next few weeks, I hope to spin off “politicaldrek” as its own independent web site, development of which is now in progress. When that happens, I will let you know. Meanwhile, it will appear on Jack’s Potpourri, replacing what up to now has been called “Politicklers.”
There may be Israelis, and Jews in the United States, who agree with what Newt said. They, however, are intelligent enough to know that certain things are best left unsaid. It serves no real purpose, other than to irritate the Palestinians, to make such statements and makes it more difficult to proceed with the steps which will ultimately lead to negotiations and a settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian problem. The only purpose of Gingrich’s remarks is to seek Jewish votes and attempt to make him appear more pro-Israel than is President Obama, who tries to soften his own pro-Israel position in an effort to further the steps to real negotiations, and who truly shows where he stands by sending Israel more advanced weaponry than this country has ever sent it before. Obama is for real. Gingrich is for Gingrich.
