Republican Presidential candidate Andy Martin issues stunning support for President Obama’s current
Andy is a critic of President Barack Obama’s overall foreign policy, but Andy believes the measured approach Obama is following in

“As someone who literally created the anti-Obama movement from scratch, and who would very much like to replace Obama in the White House, this is an uncomfortable day for me. But my love for our flag, and my love for our Constitution and my love for the American people compels me to step forward and stand up to support President Obama’s current policy on Iran.
“I am in a unique position. I have consistently been ‘right’ in a political party that has been consistently wrong over foreign policy in the last decade. I marched against the
“In March, 2006 I again sounded the alarm, and predicted Republican losses in November. But again Bush would not listen and Republicans were devastated at the polls. Nancy Pelosi became Speaker as a result of our failed

“As a presidential candidate I support an immediate end to our large-scale involvement in
“Alone among the presidential candidates I have been in and out of the Middle East for over forty years (since 1970). I have worked closely with ‘real’ Israelis, who both conduct their wars and are committed to peace. I am not bamboozled by the warmongers of the Netanyahu regime who are exploiting belligerence for political survival. I am a strong supporter of Palestinian National rights and advocate for an end to the Israeli occupation of 1967-based

“President George Washington warned us against ‘foreign entanglements.’ Yet modern conservatives, while playing verbal homage to ‘original intent,’ ignore

“Today Israel asks us to start what would become World War III, by launching attacks on a nation, Iran, that as never invaded anyone and that was invaded with United States connivance in 1980. However malignant may be

“AIPAC didn’t invite me to speak Tuesday (tomorrow)—while inviting three of my opponents—because they don’t want to hear what I have to say. But I have this message for AIPAC: the American people are weary of war, and wary of being importuned into new Middle Eastern conflicts by Israeli leaders. The American people reject
World War III could finally wipe out our economy. Communist China could sit on the sidelines and step into our position of paramount world leadership. Chinese leadership and hegemony? Now that’s a real threat to world security.
“Let me be clear: I reject both Ron Paul’s isolationism and anti-Israel attitudes, and I reject the parroting platitudes of people on
“Although Barack Obama’s own stooges have relentlessly and falsely attacked me as an anti-Semite, nothing could be further from the truth. I am the spiritual son of a Holocaust refugee, Sigmund Neumann, who tutored me on the evils of the Third Reich. As a student I came to the defense of Jewish students who were abused. I can vividly remember defending Stephen Mayer in high school, when he was harassed by Chet Mounts. I stood up for Mayer. My father helped to train the first Israeli defense forces.
“Obama and Bob Gibbs owe me an apology for their lies and smears.
“One of my closest friends, the late Fred Howard, was a holocaust refugee who has directed millions for peace in
“President Obama does not want to start a war, because he knows a new war is a loser politically. But what does ‘politically’ really mean? It means the American people are against a new war. There is no need for a war. The sanctions are working.
“The Iranian dictatorship of the Shiite clergy does not represent the Iranian people any more than AIPAC represents the American people. Would bombing and killing tens of thousands of innocent Iranians bring us closer to peace and reconciliation? Of course not.
I am not suggesting Neville Chamberlain-style appeasement.
“During the 1950’s President Dwight Eisenhower faced incessant demands from right-wing Republicans to start wars in
“President Ronald Reagan won the cold war by preparing to fight a war, not by starting a war.
“I hope President Obama will avoid the pressure to capitulate to people who want to use war as a political opportunity. Such a war would be a disaster for humanity.
“As painful as it is for me to support Obama, I believe as a nation we must return to the united foreign policy in which both parties agree on a united national interest and avoid partisan bickering. Political posturing has undermined American foreign policy in the past decades. With the greatest discomfort and reluctance, but with the ultimate confidence that I am on the right side of history, I support President Obama’s current policy. And I hope to defeat him and remove him from the White House in November. Make no mistake about that.
“If President Obama wants my assistance in the
Finally, speaking ‘politically,’ Republicans can only defeat Obama if we provide a sane and sensible alternative platform. Obama’s economic policies have failed. We need to hammer away at his economic failures.
“The Republican Party’s current approach will reelect Obama. No one wants a new war, and no one wants Rick Santorum’s religious commissars in every bedroom. Santorum says he rejects separation of church and state; maybe should run for president of
“Obama’s overall foreign policies are weak and undermine national security. In the absence of a unified bipartisan foreign policy I am happy to take the lead in that criticism.

“The world blundered into War in 1914, and again in 1939. My grandfather and father were there. We blundered in Viet-Nam. We could blunder again if we listen to AIPAC and Binyamin Netanyahu.
