Congressman Jeff Flake tweeted about seeing so many “friends” at the annual AIPAC Policy Conference Monday night, but Congressman Flake’s record shows that his support for our Democratic ally is a no-go.

Let’s Take Our Time, Find the Right Leader on Israel Issues

One such supporter is a business leader and U.S. Senate candidate we both know well: Wil Cardon, who entered the race for Kyl’s seat just a few months ago. We have had the chance to talk to Wil about Israel and the conflict in the Middle East.

In a sentence: He gets it. Wil not only understands the need to aggressively, effectively oppose those who would seek to destroy Israel, but he also stands fully committed to the primacy of the U.S.-Israel partnership.

    “In a sentence: He gets it.”

    No, in a sentence, Wil will give away money to any COUNTRY in exchange for votes.

    Support Israel – Great!

    Support Israel unconditionally – forget about it.

    Israel is a great nation with great people. It’s economy is stronger than ours. Why can’t it pay its own bills?

  2. Oberserve says

    Are we electing either one of you clowns to be a friend of Israel? Who the h*ll do you think you work for, were you to be elected.

    Get a grip. You are already a lobbyist tool and you haven’t even been elected yet!

  3. Not a good idea, moderating free speech. In any event, thank you for the compliment or is that conformation.

  4. AZDryheat says

    Flake votes against a lot of Appropriations bills, they are mostly multi-billion dollar boondoggles full of pork. That’s why fiscal conservatives love Flake.

    I hate seeing Republicans using Democrat talking points. What next Wil? You going to claim Flake is trying to “destroy Medicare”?

  5. Chandler Right says

    Yea I have to agree with DryHeat. This is ridiculous. But remember this is the guy who promises to bring home the pork so what do you expect. If he is going to bring home the port then he needs to support others pork projects. This is what is wrong with the system. This is why we cannot afford people like Cardon in the Senate. This is our “conservative?” We deserve better than this. Still dont see an alternative yet to Flake. Kind of surprised Shadegg never got in and right now Flake is probably our best option. All I know for sure is Wil Cardon IS NOT.

  6. TruConserv says

    A key point to remember: nations have allies, not friends. I want a Congressman who knows the difference. At the end of the day Israel will do what is best for Israel, America will do what is best for America, etc, etc.

    That’s just reality, and as conservatives, we are the ones who truck in the world of reality. Leave the warm, sappy international love-letters to the libs.
