“You know, many of the Republicans are using Israel as an excuse, what they really want are tax cuts for the wealthy. So Israel, that can be one reason they put forth.” ~ Nancy Pelosi
Nancy Pelosi said that Jewish Republican voters are being exploited by Republicans and are being used an excuse to avoid taxing the wealthy. [Fox News] I think we are seeing a little transference here on her part though it’s hard to figure out what she is talking about. I guess you have to read her mind to know what’s in it.
She probably thinks Jewish Republican voters are stupid and need her to tell them they are being exploited.
I’m not sure how she gets from Republicans supporting Israel to tax cuts for the wealthy but I think she’s saying that Republicans are pretending to support Israel to obfuscate their real goal of enriching the rich. We really need to take her seriously, being an insider trader and all.
Nancy Pelosi, the insider trader, and her “financier” husband are worth over $100 million dollars. Pelosi’s 2011 financial disclosure statement included between $1 million and $5 million earned from partnership income with Matthews International Capitol Management, a firm that invests exclusively in Asia (can you say outsourcing?).
I wonder if she has volunteered to give more money to the IRS since she is the wealthy?
Who is really exploiting whom? Remember back in March when a memo was sent from the state department which referred to Jerusalem and Israel as two separate entities? There was immediate backlash and they corrected the memo, putting Tel Aviv in place of Israel.
They said they merely made an error which is doubtful since it is what they believe. [Free Beacon]
There is no mistaking the view of the Obama administration in the video below. They believe Jerusalem is up for grabs.
Netanyahu and Romney have said something quite different – Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. It is and it must remain so.
