Unbelievable - James Baker on Huckabee says Obama handled Israel the right way...

Posted on 03/28/2010 7:50:42 PM PDT by RED SOUTH

Baker was arrogant as he argued with Huckabee and praised Obama and bashed Israel. I can't believe he served under Reagan but he is a Bush man and a new world order goon.

OF COURSE James Baker would say that.

Was he wearing his KKK robes for the interview?

James Baker has been a Jew-hater since forever. No surprise here at all.

Baker is part of the reason why the GOP lost so much ground the past 2 decades.
He is a loser. So is his opinion.

Yes he did....back in the Bush Sr. presidency, He said it and after that Bush Sr. favorable numbers started to fall, a pastor told us this story and said that those that curse Israel and the Jews usually get it one way or the other.

Bump. Bigot Baker hates Jews and Israel as well. He was a major player for the weaselly Bush family but minor under Reagan, who was stalwart for Israel.

Baker cost Bush I a fair amount of Jewish voters (skewed as they are to begin with) which matters when it comes to fundraising. No friend of Israel, is he.

The Bushes, Baker, Shultz — they are in bed with the Saudis (and perhaps other globalist interests).

This BTW, is in stark contradiction to extreme Rothschild conspiracy theory.

Baker is that way. Used to see him all the time in downtown Houston as his offices were in the same building I worked in. He is a very tall man. You should see the size of his body guard. He wouldn’t let anyone on the elevator unless you had your id. He also runs a very tight ship at his law firm. No one is allowed to talk socially with each other.

Genesis 12:2,3 "I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."

Baker is an elitist, as such he has always been anti-Jewish and anti-Israel. He was also behind George H. W. Bush's "Chicken Kiev" speech. Over a period of 18 months, Bush I went from 90% approval to winning 34% in the '92 elections. And it wasn't Perot's fault, Bush (and Baker and their country club, know-nothing, learn nothing team) drove down his approval all by himself. Perot was a symptom, not cause.

PS The Democrats didn't force Bush to break his "Read my lips, no new taxes" pledge.

I know Mike Huckabee, and I know that he doesn't book the guests for his TV show, the production staff does. Huckabee is a huge supporter of Israel. He spent over a week there just last month, visiting with top officials and touring the country, and talked about it every day on his radio show, where he defended the new settlements and slammed Obama for his treatment of Israel. So I hardly think he had Baker on because he agreed with him. He just dealt with what was put in front of him.

not unbelievable...Baker has a long history of friendship with the Saudis (he used to be in the oil industry) and a long history of taking their side against those pesky Israelis who only want to live in peace.

He should get the policy changed - he needs to vet the guest list. Moreso, since his name is attached to the show. I know Huckabee is a supporter of Israel, that’s why reading Baker was on his show was a ‘WTH’? Let Baker dish his propaganda elsewhere where it’s wanted.

You’d be surprised how hard it is even for the hosts of these shows to get the producers and networks to give them complete control over all aspects of the production, especially guest booking. That’s hard enough even without having to vet it with the hosts. He was lucky to get as much control over the show as he did, and I know he had to fight for that.

Did someone present him w/an opportunity for a show? Just seems to me, if my name is attached to a show, I need to approve certain things. I'm more of a 'no compromise' person.

Certain guests may not be the best, nor pleasing but when it comes to a Baker - no compromise. I'm not having him. That's it. It's me as your guest host or him - it's their choice. I'd have no problem walking off and would enjoy telling the public! No one pulls my strings.

The other alternative, I'd make his appearance a disaster, that he'd walk off. And look at the producers and say, if you ever go against my wishes, I'll do it again.

God is my Provider, never man. I wasn't put on this earth to do their will. I have my limits/my boundaries.

"....but what James Baker says or does these days is irrelevant"

Not so, Baker is very relevant.

Baker belongs to that foreign policy school or doctrine known as Realists or Pragmatists and Obama campaigned on Realist policies. McCain campaigned on NeoCon policies.

Realist Colin Powell voted for Obama
Realist Henry Kissinger, even tho he was a paid consultant to the MCain campaign, endorsed Obama's pledge to negotiate with Iran
Realist George Schultz criticized candidate McCain's position on Russia.

Obama's "four wise old men" are Kissinger, Scowcroft, Baker, and Brzezinski.

Obama's back up plan for Israel-Palestine was written by Scowcroft, Baker, Brzezinski, and Carter.

Back then it was CIA Director GHW Bush who consented to the NeoCons working up Plan B, which the US did follow. Not only was Plan B incorrect, the Soviet Union was collapsing as Plan B was being implemented.

The NeoCons were wrong then and the NeoCons were wrong about Iraq.

Thank God James Baker chaired the Iraq Study Group.

Over the years, I’ve just had it with people making excuses for the first President Bush. He did what he did in the face of outrage from his base. His base left him due to neglect.
