After being embarrassed in the November elections that saw Wendy Davis and fellow Democrats across the state go down in flames, the agents behind Battleground Texas are seeking to “repair” their reputation. To do so, they’re packing up and leaving the Lone Star State and heading to Israel to unseat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Recent reports by Breitbart Texas revealed that Jeremy Bird —the Senior Adviser to Battleground Texas and National Field Director for the 2012 campaign to re-elect President Barack Obama—is leading a few other former members of the Obama campaign team on a new field assignment. Perhaps because they haven’t been successful in Texas, the Democratic hit squad known for violating election law and making fun of disabilities is taking its talents to the Holy Land.

According to Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick, the liberal AstroTurf hit squad is assembling its forces in a bid to defeat the conservative Israeli Prime Minister.

”Obama won’t meet Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington when he addresses the Joint Houses of Congress in March because of Netanyahu’s visit’s proximity to the Israeli elections. And Obama, of course believes in protocol and propriety which is why he won’t get involved,” said Glick.

“No, he’s not getting involved at all. He’s just sending his 2012 field campaign manager to Israel to run a campaign to defeat Netanyahu. That’s all. No interference whatsoever.”

Such actions only reveal the desperation of the leaders behind Battleground Texas. Frustrated that their efforts to “Turn Texas Blue” aren’t exactly working, the liberal politicos are seeking to attack conservatives on a different field.

The liberal stratagem of invoking class warfare and using phony promises was resoundingly rejected in Texas, where its vacuity was quickly recognized. If Israeli voters are anything like Texas voters, they’ll see through the false rhetoric and personal attacks that characterize their campaigns and the results will be very similar.
