Foreign aid is a cornerstone of the pro-Israel agenda, yet when asked about foreign aid in a debate, and then when asked again a week later by the Republican Jewish Coalition, he either chose not to mention, or was unaware of, the Memorandum of Understanding between the US and Israel.

Of course, I'm talking about Mitt Romney. Our hypocritical friends on the right who told us in 2008 to be wary of Barack Obama don't seem too concerned about Romney's advisors and inexperience....
President Obama is running for re-election with a strong record of support for Israel against an inexperienced candidate with virtually no record on Israel, plenty of questionable statements and associates, and a belief that "doing the opposite" is a policy statement.
Based on the criteria our Republican friends provided in 2008, 2012 should be an easy choice for pro-Israel voters.
