Maybe he’s gonna throw Israel under the bus. But that wouldn’t really be a surprise, would it?

Call me pessimistic, but I’m afraid that the slightest, most symbolic act of reconciliation with Israel will be trumpeted as a really major deal and could be used to keep US Jews on the Democrat plantation.

OBAMA PLANS SURPRISE . . .

Anyone who has every wondered what it feels like in a jail cell just after your weight-lifting cellmate says "I've got a surprise for you" is about to experience the same feeling.

I've never been in prison, but I'm afraid we might find that this is even worse.

Surprise! Hamas has an office in the West Wing.

Surprise! I’m paying for it with campaign cash from Jewish movie producers.

Surprise! I’m gonna get away with it, and put the Black Panthers on anybody who complains.

........To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body. But as President, I must put the interest of America first. America needs a full-time President and a full-time Congress, particularly at this time with problems we face at home and abroad.

To continue to fight through the months ahead for my personal vindication would almost totally absorb the time and attention of both the President and the Congress in a period when our entire focus should be on the great issues of peace abroad and prosperity without inflation at home.

Therefore, I shall resign the Presidency effective at noon tomorrow. Vice President Biden will be sworn in as President at that hour in this office...”

He’s going to claim to have a final solution to the Israeli question. Then he’s going to ask all the Israelis in the audience to kindly make their way to the new communal “shower room” he just installed.

I briefly saw something earlier about Obama planning to provide big increases in aid to the Arab countries.

It wouldn’t suprise me if he came up with something like that.

Maybe green jobs for Arabs. Solar panels in the desert. Or offer to bring them all over here to the U.S. to build windmills, or something peachy like that.

Didn’t he already do that?

Well it wouldn't be a surprise to formally recognize Palestine so what else might Dear Leader have in mind for us? Another ball to spike? A deal to return Afghanistan to the peace loving Taliban?

I hate surprises.

He’s appointing a new czar - one who oversees Muslim outreach from the WH 24/7 (taking some of the load off his back so his posture is better for golf)?

JERUSALEM, May 17 (Xinhua) — U.S. President Barack Obama will call on Israel to withdraw to the 1967 borders and agree to additional concessions that will enable a resumption of the peace process, Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth revealed on Tuesday.

The newspaper claimed to have obtained a draft of Obama’s planned speech...

I saw an article yesterday that said he would be offering a renewed message of “Muslim outreach” in an upcoming speech. Maybe it’s related or not. Not sure what else he can do there, unless the ‘surprise’ is announcing he’s Muslim too.
