Here's some more info on Merrill “Tony” McPeak, a co-chair of Obama’s presidential campaign. This is the one who compared Bill Clinton to Senator Joe McCarthy.
The Republican Jewish Coalition has called on Senator Barack Obama to remove him as his military advisor and national campaign co-chairman. McPeak blames the failure of the Middle East peace process on the influence of American Jews. The problem, said McPeak is "New York City. Miami. We have a large vote -- vote, here in favor of Israel. And no politician wants to run against it."
He also has a has criticized Israel for not returning to the 1967 borders and for not returning the Golan Heights to Syria. What a military strategist!
Let's see, if someone were to talk about the influence of black voters in some of the recent state races would there be an outcry from the Obama camp? Take it to the bank. So why does Barack, who claims he only wants to unite everybody, have this divisive, mean spirited individual on his team? Wasn't he aware of this guys opinions either?
