Pols Fall All Over Themselves To Be Israel's Favorite Whore

Rick Perry calls for Israel aid increase

"POLITICO's James Hohmann reports from the Republican Jewish Coalition, where Rick Perry tried a course correction on his comments about zeroing out foreign aid when he takes office:

Trying to convince Jewish leaders that American support for Israel would be safe on his watch, the Texas governor drew a distinction between “foreign aid” and “strategic defensive aid.”

Perry raised eyebrows at a debate last month when he called for zeroing out foreign aid and then restoring it on a case-by-case basis.

“There have been questions asked. ... I want to clear something up while I have your attention here today,” he said at the Republican Jewish Coalition candidate forum. “Israel is our strategic ally. ... Strategic defensive aid is what we will continue to be focused on.”

“Strategic defensive aid, strategic aid in all forms, will increase to Israel,” he added, calling Israel “the cornerstone of my larger global strategy.”

Romney also recognized the "zeroing out foreign aid" perceived threat to his masters

"Romney and the rest of the Republican field support zeroing out foreign aid, even with our closest allies – including Israel. But in true Romney fashion, after he supported zeroing out aid to Israel, he flip flopped and said he wanted to increase it instead. And at tonight’s debate, he said his first foreign trip as president would be to Israel to demonstrate our strong relationship."
