Israel Thrown Under the Bus, Too

This guy is starting to make John Kerry look like straight and principled guy! In a speech before AIPAC on Wednesday, Barry O says Israel’s capital must remain undivided. I was stunned (pleasantly) at these words. Apparently I had been stunned for no good reason. Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said he was disappointed in Obama and “this statement is totally rejected”.

So guess what? On Thursday, the Obama campaign says, “Jerusalem is a final status issue, which means it has to be negotiated between the two parties” as part of “an agreement that they both can live with”. Right under the bus with ye, Israel!

Thursday was a busy day for hour Hope expert. His friend and campaign supporter Tony Rezco was convicted of fraud, money laundering and bribery. Obama’s response? He was “saddened” and this isn’t the Tony Rezco he knew. Sheeesh, Barry. It also wasn’t the Rev. Wright you knew, The Father Pfleger you knew, the William Ayers you knew, the Trinity Church you knew, and so on and so forth.

Just points to ponder, if Barack Obama doesn’t understand these things about his friends, just how the heck does he think he understands our enemies well enough to sit down and convince them to act like civilized human beings? Will Barry be “saddened” when Ahmadinejad lobs a nuke at us? Will we hear “That is NOT the Iran I knew….KABOOM!”
