(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."

Did anyone else notice how dejected he looked when the 09 Christmas day underwear bomber failed?
Why is this FELON still walking free?

He’s got some contorted brain: believing that a STRONG Mudslim Brotherhood leads to a strong Israel.
No kidding. Dope. Its been nothing short of blatant anti-Isreali policy out of this administration. What a joke.
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.
Saturate the bag before using. G’night all.
Thanks Free ThinkerNY.
Until after the election .... then he will have more flexibility.
