He was Newt’s sugar daddy well before Newt’s campaign flamed out. Google it.
His interests are:
2. Keeping American tax dollars flowing to Israel
3. Keeping his gambling empire growing in the US and China so he can bribe politicians to devote tax dollars to Israel.
Israel benefits from some of our American tax dollars, yes, but rather than argue that here (since it is not the point of this thread), I will just cite Adelson “in his own words”... so we can be fair about this. Adelson is very open about his concern for Israel, yes. And then he goes on (at greater length) to express his concerns about Obama’s new type of Democratic party and the current Democratic party economic and tax policy positions — which he believes are a significant departure from the past, and which he believes will do great harm to America and our economy. In short, Adelson is no more a “one issue” contributor than Santorum, Gingrich, or Romney were “one issue” candidates. And at least he put his money up where his mouth is, and he worked hard for the Republican ticket, something many of our critics right now failed to do. Look, either we work together now or else we do another “circular firing squad” and lose again in 2016. 8 years of HusseinO and then 8 years of what, Hillary? Why not let’s all try to pull the oars as a team this time?
