On Sunday, March 4, our President gave a speech to AIPAC that would have made anybody who did not know any better believe that he was a staunch a supporter of Israel as has ever graced the streets of these United States of America. No kidding, you can read his speech here, and believe me, it is red... You would in fact not be wrong in the least to ask me personally, why is it that his speech made me want to throw a heavy object, once again, through my telly. The answer is simple enough. I can not remember who said this first, nor where I read it originally, but it is as true a statement as has ever been made, throughout all of human history.
"All of Barack Obama's promises come with an expiration date."
As he made this speech to AIPAC that made the Likudniks seem like the Israeli version of Bolsheviks, I knew that it was simply another one of his empty platitudes wrapped in lies with a promise that would soon be walked back. How long did this promise last you might ask? It lasted until noon on Tuesday. Here is the transcript of the President's press conference from Tue... Some people that I have read over the last couple of hours have been picking the pepper from fly feces so to speak over the meaning of the phrase, "I've got your back." Read it here, another here, and another here. I see something much more cynical in all of this however. That is not to say the the analyses offered by Messirs Morrisey, Sowell, and Blackwell were not well thought out or even 100% correct. I agreed with all of them. I just want to add one little bit for extra consideration.
Barack Obama was obviously lying in one of his two distinct and indeed opposite positions on this one very polarizing issue. He either lied to AIPAC on Sunday or he lied at his Presser on Tuesday. As for determining which speech carried the lie, I believe his actions should speak loudly. Israel has known no greater adversary in the White House than this man. The same one who publicly proclaimed that any process for peace in the Middle East must start with the pre 1967 borders, and be negotiated from there. His UN Ambassador Susan Rice, is a known Anti-Semite. She has joined in numerous U.N. condemnations of Israel, a Presidential first for our nation. Even today, in his weekly remarks to NPR as reported by others, he framed his statements to suggest that Israel is pushing for military action and that it is in Israel's best interests to seek a diplomatic solution. Stating it this way of course removes any culpability from Iran, which in the real world inhabited by people who are not brain dead, is the aggressor nation in all of this. Any person who so overtly ignores the Iranian Sabre Rattling with such incendiary comments as we will wipe the Zionist Entity from the map is certainly no friend of Israel. When that same person is able to twist the circumstances and use moral equivalence to place Israel as the aggressor is the worst kind of evil. That person is Barack Hussein Obama.
For the life of me, I will not ever fully understand why politicians place such importance on the Jewish vote. Don't get me wrong, as a person of the Jewish faith, I am flattered by the attention. To be clear though, we make up less than half a percent of the American Population. Despite the stereo types, we control less than half a percent of the Nation's wealth. While it is true that our median incomes are slightly higher than the national average, that is also true of other ethnic groups as well, and within those groups, we don't really stand out in that regard either. While it is true that I enjoy the special attention, who wouldn't, I still do not wish to be lied to. I realize that all politicians are capable of telling whoppers, but most of them are at least truthful about their core principles. Either Barack Obama has no core principles, or he is fully aware that the ones he does have are in direct contradiction to the majority of Americans. What ever the case is, he is in no way worthy of being President of These United State of America.
