Neocon Attacks Jeb Bush Adviser for Delivering Speech at Convention of 'Self-Hating Jews'

Talk show host author Mark Levin assailed Jeb Bush last night over the revelation that one of his top foreign policy advisers, James Baker, will keynote a J Streetl conference this weekend in Washington D.C.

Jeb Bush’s selection of Baker as a foreign policy adviser has sparked concern among neo-conservatives. Baker famously said said during his tenure as secretary of state in the George H.W. Bush administration, “F—k the Jews, they don’t vote for us anyway.” Baker is also a supporter of President Obama’s Iran negotiations.

J Street is a nonprofit advocacy group based in the United States that identifies itself as a pro-peace, pro-Israel organization.


Bush spokesman Tim Miller sent the following statement to Levin: “Governor Bush consults with a broad group of advisors, reflecting different views. The Governor’s own record on Israel is one of strong and unwavering support. When it comes to J Street, in particular, he firmly opposes lobbying groups whose actions undermine Israel’s efforts to defend itself.”
