NRO title: “What the 2012 Election Means for Israel”

“President Obama has thrown allies like Israel under the bus.” That’s what Mitt Romney, Republican candidate for president, said in the high-profile speech accepting his party’s nomination last week, repeating a slang phrase for sacrificing a friend for selfish reasons. Romney had deployed this phrase before, for example in May 2011 and Jan. 2012. This criticism of Obama fits a persistent Republican critique. Specifically, several other recent presidential candidates used or endorsed the same “bus” formulation vis-à-vis Obama and Israel, including Herman Cain in May 2011, Rick Perry in Sept. 2011,Newt Gingrich in Jan. 2012, and Rick Santorum in Feb. 2012.

  1. Speaking of Kenyans – It seems the Finn cultural “elite” has a similar bent as the Swedish one. I’m referring to, of course the new movie (“The Marshal of Finland”) about the life of Gustav Mannerheim (supreme comander of the Finnish armed forces during the war with the Soviet Union). Mannerheim will be portraied by Kenyan actor Telley Savalas Otieno. Why, he could be Obama seniors son!
