Skip to comments.Obama Versus Obama: Part IV (Sowell on Obama & Israel)

During the same week when the American ambassador to Libya was murdered and his dead body dragged through the streets by celebrating mobs, the President of the United States found time to go on the David Letterman show to demonstrate his sense of humor and how cool he is.
But Barack Obama did not have time to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of a nation repeatedly threatened with annihilation by Iranian leaders, who are working feverishly toward the creation of nuclear bombs.
This was an extraordinary thing in itself, something that probably no other President of the United States could have gotten away with, without raising a firestorm of criticisms and denunciations. But much of the media sees no evil, hears no evil and speaks no evil when it comes to Barack Obama especially during an election year.
Nor was this public rebuff of a publicly requested meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu unique in its expression of disrespect, if not contempt, for both the man and his country. Despite his glowing assertions of his commitment to Israel, especially in speeches to American Jewish groups, Barack Obama has been working against Israel's interests from his first day in the White House. As in many other contexts, Barack Obama 1 speaks but Barack Obama 2 acts often in the opposite direction.

Thanks for that jaz.
The hindsight of history usually reveals the foolishness of misguided leaders, but it is rare for a leader to be so unfit that it is obvious to everyone as events are taking place.
Plus it's incomprehensible to me that he still has the supporters he has, not a good sign for the future of our country.
As usual, Sowell nails it!
Thanks for the ping
In Barack Obama's case, the potential for catastrophe is international in scope, and perhaps irretrievable in its consequences, as he stalls with feckless gestures as terrorist-sponsoring Iran moves toward the production of nuclear bombs.
It's easy to throw rocks at a feckless communist from Hoover Tower Dr. Sowell. In specific and concrete terms, what would you have America do about it?
I've emailed and called him in the past and never received an answer.
Try again, it doesn't cost anything but a few minutes of your time.
Uuuhhh, how about supporting them like they’ve supported us? Not concrete enough?
In any war between the civilized and the savage man, support the civilized man.
I’ll let you figure it out. MmmmK?
No. Please define what "support" looks like in physical terms, you know, "blockade," "attack," "assassinate," "remove," "arm," "sanction," "cower,"... words like that, actions with discernible consequences by which one gets an idea where a person stands.
Ill let you figure it out. MmmmK?
No. Yours is cowardly ambiguity.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
It’s the icing on the “Obama vs. Obama” cake. Thank you for the ping.
