Sen. McCain calls for Bill
Clinton to lead Israel-Palestinian talks

The Hill [Washington DC], by Brendan Sasso

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/18/2012 7:02:53 PM

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) suggested on Sunday that President Obama should send former President Bill Clinton to lead cease fire talks between Israelis and Palestinians. "We need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together as an honest broker," McCain said on CBS´s “Face the Nation”. He joked that Clinton would hate him for floating his name for the difficult task. Violence has escalated rapidly in recent days, after Israel launched air strikes in Gaza after a spike in rocket attacks from Hamas.

Is McCain on the campaign trail? Is he nuts after all? Is the Republican party over? The nastiness coming out from all the losers and thinking they could have done better without Romney, are getting boring. McCain is nothing but a democrat shill. No wonder he didn´t win. Guess he wants a legacy of sorts. What a fool! He´s another one like Obama who thinks we are stupid.

I will heartily support such a measure provided Bill brings along his all-girl revue, Monica & the Clintonettes.

What a great idea Senator McCain, let´s get Bill Clinton the Nobel Peace Prize. Why not now that Obama received it for nothing else then being elected.

I fear Senator McCain has now gone considerably past his shelf life. There are two problems with his suggestion:

1. The Palestinians, or those appointed or chosen to represent them, have not the slightest interest in peace, as half a century of fruitless talks and the current hostilities should show anyone; and

2. Bill Clinton aka Slick Willy, he of "it depends upon what the meaning of is is." The man who "did not have sex with that woman." Well, okay, it depends upon what the meaning of sex is. Oral sex is not like, you know, regular sex. The man whose law license was suspended for 5 years and who was fined $25,000 for willfully providing misleading information to the court. I don´t know if he ever bothered to try to restore his license. Democrat lawyers seem to have a problem maintaining their licenses to practice and may feel they have a freer hand to lie, cheat, misrepresent and engage in corrupt practices without the ethical constraints -such as they are- of a license to practice law.

John McCain should give some serious consideration to fading away. One can commiserate with his POW experiences without asserting that he has, on the whole, been of a great deal of service to his country. Puffing up the reputation of a scoundrel like Slick Willy raises real questions about McCain´s mental functioning as well as adding to the confusion of an already thoroughly addled electorate.

I don´t get why this is such a bad idea. He still does have a lot of prestige around the world, outside of domestic Republican circles. Might as well be nonpartisan - seems to be the only game in town these days. Besides, unlike our perpetual presidente, he doesn´t hate Israel.

I think McCain has quite a sense of humor and I thought it was funny, he doesn´t give a damn about slick willy. No, I will not forget that he is a war hero and terribly wounded. I love all of our men who go to war to protect our way of life. To do otherwise would be a shame.

The last time Slick brokered a deal between the Israelis and the Palis, Arafat launched the Second Intifada. It was meant to be the outgoing Clinton´s crowning foreign policy achievement but instead resulted in five years of ethnic strife.

There is no need for Israeli-Palestinian peacetalks more complicated than a simple statement by Hamas to Israel: ´´We surrender.´´

When Hamas runs out of missiles and its missile installations have been destroyed, then the leader of Hamas can sue for peace by simply asking someone who does not have to be ´´a person of enormous prestige and influence´´ -- Bill Clinton´s wife, for example -- to provide a table so he can sign a surrender document.

There´s something very strange about McCain´s approach when dealing with people who should be enemies - he likes to kowtow to them.

"you have nothing to fear from a President Obama"...that one puts my stomach in knots every time I think about it.

I´ve always wondered if it had something to do with his time as a POW.

This is a brilliant move. In one fell swoop, McCain has put Bambi between a rock and a hard place. He has:
1. Planted in everyone´s minds the need for Bambi to seek help from his much smarter predecessor.
2. Sown even more ill will from Bill toward Bambi if Bambi thinks of appointing ANYONE else to take on this task, thereby depriving Bill of a Nobel Peace Prize.
3. Made it clear that Hillary isn´t up to this task; therefore, she´d be a lousy POTUS--only her husband is up to the task.
4. Made Bambi look foolish if he appoints anyone but Bill or himself. We all know that Bambi has weak interpersonal and negotiating skills, and is much more comfortable playing golf, vacationing, or campaigning. Moreover, Bambi knows that in peace talks, he will be bereft of both the TelePrompter and ValJar, so he´d fail utterly.

Brilliant!

Everytime there are peace talks, only Israel has to give up something..something like the Gaza and the Jews that lived there leaving their homes and farms behind. The Palestinians only wanted it for a closer place to launch rockets.

Good points, #33. It´s also worth remembering the details of Bill Clinton´s experience with Israeli-Palestinian talks when he was president. Rumor has it that he was pretty bitter at the Palestinians´ (Arafat´s) last minute shenanigans -- especially that it cost him the Nobel Peace Prize. Bill Clinton never forgets. It might be interesting to see how that experience would affect his efforts today.

President Barack Obama hits Chicago on Wednesday for two jumbo priced fundraisers to benefit the Democratic National Committee. Obama hosts a roundtable—I am told keyed towards business executives—at the Chicago Cut Steakhouse downtown where about 25 folks are expected; the tab is up to $32,400. The Obama roundtable is hosted by Mesirow Financial Chairman and CEO Richard Price. Later, Obama is the headliner at a dinner for about 55—donating up to $10,000--at the Lincoln Park home of Craig Freedman and Grace Tsao-Wu, who is an Obama major donor and fund-raiser.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin tops a national poll of female candidates that Americans want to run for president. The Economist/YouGov survey asked respondents in a series of polls last week which female candidate not named Hillary Clinton they would want to run for president. Palin is first in the national survey with 9%, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and former Secretary of State and National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice with 8%. Michelle Obama is fourth with 2% of the vote. In other national polls, Palin has the highest favorability rating among Republican presidential primary voters. If she does

Here is a seeming paradox of American life. One the one hand, there is a broad social-science correlation between religious faith and various social goods — health and happiness, upward mobility, social trust, charitable work and civic participation. Yet at the same time, some of the most religious areas of the country — the Bible Belt, the deepest South — struggle mightily with poverty, poor health, political corruption and social disarray. Part of this paradox can be resolved by looking at nonreligious variables like race. But part of it reflects an important fact about religion in America: The social goods

AUSTIN - The dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Monument at the Texas Capitol on Saturday highlighted the pain, pride and solidarity of those who served in an unpopular conflict. "They fought, they bled, all too often they died for their country. When they came home, there wasn´t any parades. There weren´t any picnics. Instead they were treated with indifference or, even worse, with outright scorn," said Gov. Rick Perry.

The Oscar-winning actress and singer says she´ll take her very first skydive on Monday - her 80th birthday. "That´s something I wanted to do all my life," Jones said Friday.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

With studies showing widening economic gaps between whites and African Americans, civil rights leaders in metro Detroit are concerned. “We’re going in the wrong direction,” said Freda Sampson, a leader with the nonprofit group Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion. “We’re getting further and further divided.” To help close that racial and class divide, her group is holding an all-day conference, called the Equity Action Summit, on Saturday at Cobo Center in Detroit. (Snip) Saturday’s conference, supported by the NAACP and Fair Housing Center of Metro Detroit, is to feature talks by President Barack Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript. And it appears that the only "mere scraps" of evidence of baby Barack´s time in Seattle are

With high school seniors and their families now deciding where to enroll for college next fall, they might want to take a gander at research showing the best -- and worst -- values for a degree. The shocker in a survey by PayScale, a research firm that focuses on compensation, is that there are schools where students would have been better off not attending. Why? The 20-year net return on their college investment amounts to a financial loss, even when financial aid is included. Taking the time to get and spend money on a degree, in short, means you might actually find yourself in a financial hole. The survey may add to parents' doubts about

´Noah´ Review: Brilliantly Sinister
Anti-Christian Filmmaking

When atheist director and co-writer Darren Aronofsky promised that his epic "Noah" would be "the least biblical film ever made," that was not hyperbole. "Noah" is a brilliant, compelling, beautifully-mounted, beautifully-acted piece of storytelling conceived for the sinister purpose of leading people to believe that Christianity and Judaism are something they are not. (Snip) What does matter, though, is The Message. The Message is everything. And this is where Aronofsky is the snake in the garden. Using a $135 million, he and Paramount have brilliantly and deviously disguised the Pagan god Gaia as the God of the Old Testament … as THE God.
