Obamanation: My nice offensive is real,
don’t doubt it or I’ll really screw you
Obama is a pathetic liar and a political chameleon. Caroline Glick nailed it shut yesterday on Obama’s sudden turn-around “nice offensive” towards Israel’s head of state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
His numbers are slipping among American Jews which spells a “big bad” for Dems running in elections this November, so all of a sudden, out comes the red carpet and smiles for the Israeli leader. Netanyahu is not stupid, he and his cabinet knows what the score is and will shake the Obamanation’s hand, but will carry some ready wipes in their pockets.
Here’s the J’lem Post article first, then a few words by Glick followed with a link to her column, she’s got this guy pegged to a tee. KGS
US President Barack Obama on Saturday welcomed the “balanced” nuclear non-proliferation accord reached Friday at a UN conference but criticized the singling out of Israel in the document. Obama said the document “includes balanced and practical steps that will advance non-proliferation, nuclear disarmament, and peaceful uses of nuclear energy, which are critical pillars of the global non-proliferation regime.” But, he said, “we strongly oppose efforts to single out Israel, and will oppose actions that jeopardize Israel’s national security.”
The Democratic Party is feeling the heat for US President Barack Obama’s hostility towards Israel. In an interview with Channel 10earlier this month, Democratic Party mega-donor Haim Saban characterized the Obama administration as ideologically aligned with the radical Left and harshly criticized its treatment of Israel.Both Ma’ariv and Yediot Aharonot reported this week that Democratic congressmen and senators are deeply concerned that the administration’s harsh treatment of Israel has convinced many American Jews not to contribute to their campaigns or to the Democratic Party ahead of November 2’s mid-term elections. They also fear that American Jews will vote for Republican challengers in large numbers.It is these concerns, rather than a decision to alter his positions on Israel specifically and the Middle East generally, that now drive Obama’s relentless courtship of the American Jewish community. His latest move in this sphere was his sudden invitation to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to visit him at the White House for a “warm reception” in front of television cameras next Tuesday.It is clear that electoral worries rather than policy concerns are behind what the White House has described as a “charm offensive,” because since launching this offensive a few weeks ago, Obama not changed any of his policies towards Israel and the wider Middle East.In fact, he has ratcheted up these policies to Israel’s detriment.
