In Mideast Strife, Bush Sees a Step To Peace
No, Bush sees mideast strife the same way that the Republicans see everything--as a way to win, or get close enough to steal, the next election.
Fred S. Zeidman, a Texas venture capitalist who is active in Jewish affairs and has been close to the president for years, said the current crisis shows the depth of the president's support for Israel. "He will not bow to international pressure to pressure Israel," Zeidman said. "I have never seen a man more committed to Israel."
What's in it for Bush? Pandering to the perfect red heifer End Times loons while smearing Democrats as anti-Semitic? Some kinda classic Rovian triple bank shot, that's for sure.
