In perhaps one of her most inane comments since “you’ve got to pass the bill to know what’s in it,” Pelosi makes an incredibly convoluted and illogical argument that the GOP is criticizing Obama on Israel only to “exploit” the Jewish vote for cutting taxes.
If you couldn’t follow it in the video, here’s the transcript:
HUNT: Do you think he’ll do as well with the Jewish vote this time as he did last time?
PELOSI: The election will tell us that.
HUNT: What do you think?
PELOSI: But I – I think that he will. I think that he will, because the fact is when the facts get out. You know, as many of the Republicans are using Israel as an excuse, what they really want are tax cuts for the wealthy. So Israel, that can be one reason they put forth.
HUNT: That’s why some of the Republican Jewish supporters are really active.
PELOSI: Well, that’s how they’re being exploited. And they’re smart people. They follow these issues. But they have to know the facts.
