Bachmann ad, microsite take on Obama over Israel

The ad, Politico’s Ben Smith reports, takes readers to a microsite that calls the president’s policy a “rapid and drastic departure from previous U.S. policy.“

In his speech before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the president said, “there was nothing particularly original in my proposal.“

Bachmann’s ad comes at a time when both Republicans and Democrats are criticizing the president for his proposal that Israel and the Palestinians return to the borders agreed upon in 1967 with “mutually agreed swaps” of territory. It also strengthens Bachmann’s position among social conservatives as she considers a potential presidential bid.
