Gullible and Naive Bernie

24 05 2016

Sometimes Bernie shows us by his gullibility and naivete that when it come to foreign policy he’s really not up to seriously governing…or even understanding.   The most recent example of this is Bernie’s choice of what the media is terming a pro-Palestinian Arab American to be on the drafting committee of the Democratic Party platform.

Indeed, even by accepting the bones being thrown his way by getting to choose a few persons for the drafting committee, Bernie has already now compromised his ability to do what he should both during and after the convention.  But that’s a much longer more complicated story.  For now just read what I’ve written in the past about Bernie’s choice for the drafting committee:

Here’s a quote from the above link:   There he was at it again this weekend playing footsie with his good friend Joe Lieberman, the Senator from Connecticut and the representative of and apologist for Ariel Sharon and Israel.     It was once again non other than James Zogby, the Arab-American political hustler, at his best (tongue in cheek of course!).   And even after all the many millions he has pocketed and spent on self-promotion, Zogby could only manage to get a few hundred naive and confused Arab-Americans to join him for his latest little conference in Detroit — the one his good friend Joe Lieberman exploited for his own gain rounding up the TV cameras to show him addressing his Arab-Americans “cousins”  and “telling it like it is”.    Zogby is more pariah among in-the-know activist Arab-Americans than anything else; but even so official Washington and the corporate-media often trot him out when they want a safe and practiced ‘Arab-American’ talking head.
