Training your kids to ‘support’ the troops and to be ‘pro-peace’

Simply sickening.

Speaking of sicko moonbats, some Democrats – including presidential hopeful Senator Barack Obama – are distancing themselves from a recent article written by MoveOn.Org mega-backer George “Bush is Hitler” Soros suggesting that the Democratic Party “liberate” itself from the “influence” of the “pro-Israel lobby”:

WASHINGTON — Leading Democrats, including Senator Obama of Illinois, are distancing themselves from an essay published this week by one of their party’s leading financiers that called for the Democratic Party to “liberate” itself from the influence of the pro-Israel lobby.

The article, by George Soros, published in the New York Review of Books, asserts that America should pressure Israel to negotiate with the Hamas-led unity government in the Palestinian territories regardless of whether Hamas recognizes the right of the Jewish state to exist. Mr. Soros goes on to say that one reason America has not embraced this policy is because of the influence of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

Yesterday, Mr. Obama’s presidential campaign issued a dissent from the Hungarian-born billionaire’s assessment. ” Mr. Soros is entitled to his opinions,” a campaign spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, said. “But on this issue he and Senator Obama disagree. The U.S. and our allies are right to insist that Hamas — a terrorist organization dedicated to Israel’s destruction — meet very basic conditions before being treated as a legitimate actor. AIPAC is one of many voices that share this view.”

The Soros article puts Democrats in the awkward position of choosing between Mr. Soros, a major funder of their causes, and the pro- Israel lobby, whose members are also active in campaign fund-raising. Pressed by The New York Sun, some Democrats aired their differences with Mr. Soros.

Decisions, decisions. They’ll walk the tightrope between Soros and AIPAC just long enough to get money from them in hopes they’ll get elected. Then, as we saw almost immediately after the Dems got elected into the majority, the masks will come off.
