Republicans favor Israel's best interests over America's, new poll finds.

From Digby:

Republicans by a ratio of more than 2-to-1 say the U.S. should support Israel even when its stances diverge with American interests, a new Bloomberg Politics poll finds. 

Democrats, by roughly the same ratio, say the opposite is true and that the U.S. must pursue its own interests over Israel's.

Think about that.  

Republicans believe in supporting a foreign country over the best interests of America.  

Israel First!

We all understand that Israel is our best friend in the M.E., and the U.S. is committed to supporting them against their enemies who wish them harm.

But for Republicans to swear allegiance to a foreign country (which I believe this poll demonstrates) over one's country's best interests is something I never thought I'd see in my life. 

The Democrats believe America's best interests come first, as true patriots should, and yet the Republicans believe they are the only party that loves America.

This poll tells us something very, very different.

From Slate, an excellent article, with tons of links backing up the claim that the GOP loves foreign intervention, except when it's a Dem in the Oval Office.

Then they hate it.

I particularly love the bit about it being unpatriotic and treason to criticize Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al during the Iraq war, but criticism of Obama is seen as the patriotic duty of freedom fighters.

It's a great read...
