(Reuters) - President Barack Obama cited the "ruthless" suicide bus attack in Bulgaria and upheaval in Syria as reasons to fortify support for Israel, telling a re-election campaign event in Florida on Thursday he stood by Israel's side.

Departing from his normal stump-speech themes of tax fairness, education and healthcare, the Democratic president described the Bulgaria airport bus bombing that killed five Israeli tourists as "barbaric" and a "ruthless terrorist attack."

By Israel’s side? So Israel should *really* worry about a knife in the kidneys?

Does anybody wonder what if?

What if those tourists in Bulgaria hit by targeted bombing are Americans?

What would be Obama’s moves?

He’s got some contorted brain: believing that a STRONG Mudslim Brotherhood leads to a strong Israel.

Barack the Kenyan may have screwed around with and threatened Israel during his entire first term, however, now that the campaign season has kicked into gear, Barry is Israel’s BFF. There are way too many morons living on this planet.
