It's about time Republicans cut the pious baloney and dishonesty about Israel.

I'm sick and tired of the Romney campaign and Republican party strategy to inject, pull and drag Israel into our Presidential election. I'm sick of their transparent pandering to American Jews with made-up scare stories, false alarms, and lies about how U.S. support of Israel isn't strong under the Obama administration.

Obama and Netanyahu may not be BFF's, but the evidence shows that the Obama administration's support of Israel is unquestionable. It's even stronger than ever. As President Obama said, when it comes to the support and security of Israel, "Israel, we have your back!"

Romney is so desperate that it wouldn't surprise me to see him pull an "October surprise" and call for Israel to become our 51st state.
