Obama: “I am the Closest Thing to a Jew that Has Ever Sat in this Office

(Insert long string of Yiddish curse words here)
David Axelrod recalled Obama venting in a moment of contemplation, telling him, You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office. For people to say that I am anti-Israel, or, even worse, anti-Semitic, it hurts.
Either this quote is real  or it was made up by David Axelrod. I’m not sure which is worse.
Since Axelrod is a leftist and a compulsive liar, that would be more of the same bizarre narrative put out by some of Obama’s Jewish toadies. It’s understandable in a perverse sort of way. Jewish leftists have cut themselves off from Jewish values and traditions, and the future of the Jewish people. They retain some sort of vestigial tribalism expressed in Woody Allen movies, jokes about eating Chinese food and pretending that their leftist pals are their soul brothers.
This is coming out in a major push by leftists in the Israeli media to promote Obama’s Iran nuke sellout so it should be viewed as more propaganda orchestrated by leftist idiots out of tune with Israel.
But if Obama actually said this, then he may have actually spent so much time around Jewish leftists that he thinks that the two are one and the same. That having a radical leftist in office is the closest thing to having a Jewish president.
We already had Obama recently telling someone that he is Jewish  in his soul. That comment could have been read as merely philosemitic, but the Axelrod one reveals entitlement and appropriation.
Obama is playing the “I am everything to everyone” game.
And on that note, one of his most effective tricks has been mimicking the cultural signals of various groups. As a Third Culture immigrant, Obama is very good at picking up on cultural signals and reflecting them back with the message, “I am one of you. I share your values.”
He can come to a Christian event and talk about his religious faith and then flip over to a pop culture photo op and give out cultural signals to Millenials and Generation Xers that he likes their favorite shows and bands. He’ll hit up liberal Baby Boomers with 60s Civil Rights references and then give a talk in the Midwest filled with references to “Folks”.
It is all very transparent, but Obama is better at it than most politicians are because he is both insecure and egotistical, and absolutely shameless. Hillary’s southern accent has nothing on Obama’s tricks.
Obama’s speeches build imaginary connections. They con those on the receiving end into believing that Obama is one of them.
The interesting question is what does Obama believe.
In a more in depth interview with Martin Indyk, U.S. Special Envoy for the IsraeliPalestinian Negotiations from 2013 to 2014, the latter claimed that Israelis are ungrateful to this president.
Remember that string of Yiddish curse words? Throw in a few in here too.

Different article and content than the earlier thread with the same title
Obama: I am the Closest Thing to MAO that Has Ever Sat in this Office
If he thinks Muslims are closer to being a Jew than a Christian then he is correct.
We know for a fact his Dad was Muslim
When I did get high I think I would wish I could get whatever he is taking
Then why do you hate ‘em so much, eh, Barry?
Co-opting another religion for expediency....
He sets a good example of why someone should not do drugs, imho. I would have never said something so stupid back in those days myself :)
Obama: I am the Closest Thing to Satan that Has Ever Sat in this Office
“I am the closest thing to a homosexual, Muslim, America-hating dictator who has ever sat in this office” has a ring to it, too.
He’s the “John the Baptist” of the AC.
More like it. He is also the biggest feckless fool that ever sat in the office.
He is the closest thing to a sociopath who has ever occupied the office.
biggest turd he means.
You are the closest thing to a demented, insane ignoramus that has ever sat in that office....
And you continue giving the world evidence of it!
actually correction. He is the biggest delusional, egotistical,druggie turd the white house has ever seen
Said the same earlier today. This is a prime example why drugs are bad for you and how they fry your head.
It is still beyond amazement how this thing got elected...Not once, but TWICE!!!!!!!!!!!!
