Obama to Jewish Donors: “I Try Not to Pat Myself on the Back” But I’ve Done More For Israel...
Gateway Pundit ^ | 12/1/2011 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 12/01/2011 9:38:31 AM PST by Qbert

In May Barack Obama urged Israel to hand over half of Jerusalem, the Wailing Wall, The Temple Mount, Old Jerusalem, and the tomb of Jesus Christ to the Hamas-Fatah terrorist alliance.

Obama thought this would bring peace.

Hamas and Fatah leaders met again this week to discuss the reconciliation process between the two radical groups.

But, since when did facts matter to Barack Obama? Last night Barack Obama told Jewish donors in New York that he has done more for Israel than all of his predecessors combined. The Jerusalem Post reported, via Israel Matsav:

US President Barack Obama defended his policy toward Israel on Wednesday at a political fundraiser where a prominent American Jewish leader mentioned concerns in the Jewish community about the US-Israeli relationship.

Obama, who has been criticized by some of Israel’s US supporters for being tough on a close ally and has had strained ties with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, offered strong assurances of his commitment to Israel’s security.

“I try not to pat myself too much on the back, but this administration has done more for the security of the state of Israel than any previous administration,” Obama said. “We don’t compromise when it comes to Israel’s security … and that will continue.”

The president was speaking to campaign donors at the Manhattan home of Jack Rosen, chairman of the American Jewish Congress, who said “it would be remiss for me not to say there are many in the Jewish community who are concerned” about the relationship between Israel and the United States.

Rosen added, however, that “America has never been as supportive of the state of Israel as President Obama and his administration.”

The White House wants to shore up support among Jewish voters for Obama’s 2012 re-election bid. He won nearly eight of every 10 Jewish voters in 2008, but a slip would jeopardize his re-election drive in battleground states like Florida and Pennsylvania.

Don’t pat yourself on the back, Barack.

Yesterday afternoon, it was lying to bitter, clinging white people in Scranton about "tax cuts", and last night, it was lying to Jewish donors about his wonderful work for "Israel's security". Wonder who the target audience will be today?...

For all his “complexity”, intellect, cultured ways, etc. (ad nauseum per the media), Obummer can be summed up in one 4-letter word: LIAR.

There are two things wrong with that statement...

I agree, zer0 has been EXTREMELY to the MAX supportive of the state of Israel... with the premise that the support is for an Israel situated 50-100 miles to the WEST of its current location.

Yup.

It’ll be TOTUS’s fault if POTUS doesn’t get re-elected...

From what I can see, BO did not use the word "combined".

IMHO, we don't do ourselves any favors when we embellish - describing a liar - by in turn, lying about what he said.

What surprises me is that the Jews did not walk out in disgust upon hearing Obama’s nonsense. Jewish Obama supporters must be the most confused people on Earth.

1) Not all Jews are smart.(tm)

2) American Jews who willingly occupy the same space as Hussein are far far more interested in social climbing and government contracts, than they are about the survival of a tiny, remote place to which they feel no connection, ex- the occasional rhetorical flourish.

"IMHO, we don't do ourselves any favors when we embellish - describing a liar - by in turn, lying about what he said."

"We"? I didn't write it.

(At any rate, the headline itself doesn't suggest that, and the actual quote is contained within the post, so I take the additional word to be a mistake, rather than an attempted "lie", as you state).

When I said “we”, that includes “me” of course.

Whether or not “combined” was “mistakenly” added is irrelevant - he mis-characterized BO’s statement.

“We” (as conservatives) need to hold ourselves to a higher standard.

Please take some responsibility for “your” post.

Anyone who falls for this jug-earred marxist’s bald-faced lies cannot be too smart, even if they’ve managed to make a lot of money.

Some may ask, “if you’re so smart, why aren’t you rich?”

I prefer to ask, “if you’re so smart, why did you vote for a Commie Punk?”

I have no problems with that...

...As long as “we” understand that if we set ourselves on fire over every erroneous word in a blog post, while the left continues to cheat, steal and lie, there’s going to be very little opportunity to save what’s left of our already-decimated society.

Forest for the trees.

You guys think small and do not have the wisdom and big picture vision that Obama does.

He is looking to fundamentally change the security situation in Israel to a more stable situation.

Obama is firmly convinced that as soon as he has replaced Prime Minister Netanyahu with Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas and fundamentally changed the demographic situation in Israel to be more compatible with it's Arab neighbors there will a basis for a much enhanced security situation.

This security situation will also be enhanced by Hundreds of Billions of Dollars of US subsidies per year for the next 50 years to support the peace process and feed the Palestinians who suffer from historic discrimination and who continue to be oppressed and prevented from realizing their true potential by the Zionists.

These same Zionists continue to violate the Palestinians basic human rights from their new Zionist homeland in the Mediterranean Ocean that the Zionists have illegitimately stolen from the Mediterranean Sea Bass

You just don't think big like Obama does when it comes to whole "Hope and Change thing"- but that is why he is the enlightened President of the Known Universe and you are posting from your basement dressed in Pajamas.

Hey, I'm just here working for the Obama Administration checking out potential venues for the new Zionist Homeland.

Gotta love the Turks - they are working day and night reviewing Armenian -Turkish History to get ready to provide proper greeting for their new Zionist guests in time for Obama's final solution for Middle East Peace.

Hey, you have to cut Yehuda some slack - that is pretty much is an accurate statement of the Obama Administration's formal policy on the resolution of Israel's security situation.

As for me, I continue to work diligently for an alternate venue for the Zionist State in anticipation of Obama’s 2016 meeting with Jewish Democrat Political Donor's for his quest for a Historic Third Term in office.

Obama’s goal is to assure them that he is the strongest supporter of the Mediterranean Security situation consistent with U.N. Mandated Autonomy and Self Determination for the Noble Mediterranean Sea Bass.

The Turks assure me they are eager to help.

Obama expects this address to convince these same prominent Jewish donors to double the 2 million dollars they contributed to him in based on his first Address to them on Israeli Security in 2011 to an unprecedented 4 million bucks for his 2016 run. ( I wish this part about the 2 Mega Buck donations were not a weak attempt at sarcastic satire.)

Oops, my bad That should have read

“Hey, Yehuda you have to cut Qbert some slack...”

My cell phone is small and my finger tips are big.

At any rate, I can't seem be more “over the top “ than Obama has been with his lip service regarding Israeli Security.

He has truly set the rhetorical bar too high for mortal men.
