Barack's Israel Advisor is Bush's Special Envoy

The Jerusalem Post published proof that Joe the Plumber's "death to Israel" assessment of Obama is off track. The paper cited Bush special adviser to the region, James Jones, will likely play a significant role in any Obama administration.

But Jim is a busy man with his appointment at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and his service on Boeing and Chevron's Board of Directors. Jones heads up the 21st Century Energy Task force for the Chamber.

Barack asked another man with the initials JJ to help him early in his Presidential run. Jim Johnson headed up Obama's VP selection committee, at least until his business connections and excessive consulting deal with Fannie Mae caused him to resign.

Obama will likely continue Bush's close ties with corporate interests, intent on milking the multiple tits of the Government Industrial Monstrosity, Eisenhower's MIC on steroids. Bill Clinton upset Republicans by horning in on the high dollar Republican franchise. Might Barack Obama conduct a great game of imitation? Time will tell, as will his National Security Adviser appointment...
