Obama’s AIPAC Talk an “odd, alternative reality”

June 4, 2008 · Filed Under Iran, Israel, John McCain 

Barack Obama gave a speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in Washington this morning, which was labeled representative of an “odd, alternative reality” by Randy Scheunemann, national security advisor to John McCain.

Senator Joe Lieberman stated that there existed a “disconnect between what [Obama] said today with regards to Iran and what he has said earlier.”

Lieberman was referring to Obama’s opposition to last year’s Kyl-Lieberman amendment which designated the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization, and which a majority of the Democratic leadership supported, as evidence that disconnect.

It’s a lot more difficult to play both side of an issue in the age of YouTube, Barack!
