Obama exaggerates aid to Israel - Obama says '$70 billion' for Israeli missile defense program
Washington Free Beacon ^ | 7/27/12 | Adam Kredo

President Barack Obama erroneously exaggerated the amount of money his administration has provided to an Israeli missile defense program Friday while signing a bill meant to boost U.S.-Israeli security ties.

Obama, who has been criticized for weakening the U.S.-Israel alliance, was attempting to tout his administration’s commitment to the Jewish state when he incorrectly stated that Israel will receive “$70 billion dollars” for its missile defense program.

“I’m very pleased that this week we are going to be able to announce $70 million spending…$70 billion, excuse me, in additional spending for Iron Dome,” Obama said, inflating the actual dollar amount incorrectly.

The U.S. originally announced in May that it would provide Israel $70 million for its Iron Dome missile defense program, which intercepts missiles fired by Palestinian terrorists.

White House press secretary Jay Carney made news Thursday when he refused to name the capital Israel in a press briefing.

One of these days - and Israel will be the major focus of the false peace that is coming.

Daniel 8:23-25

King James Version (KJV)

23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

“$70 million spending…$70 billion, excuse me,”

Were there any of Obama’s “paralegals err paramedics” there to help with those fainting?

Hilarious, and telling. Here’s Obama, taking credit for money for Israel. He says “$70 million”, which is the amount, and even HE realizes that it is a paltry sum of money, so he “corrects” himself, lying that it is actually $70 BILLION.

Brak can’t comprehend of a spending figure below “billions” - it would be like trying to negotiate buying a house in terms of pennies.

Hey Barack!

If you quit funding the Pali Terrorists, and the other Arab threats, perhaps WE could save a little on Israeli defense too!!!!

Why is the U.S borrowing money to support Israel or any other country?

Okay. So far this election year Obama has pandered to women, blacks, Latinos, gays, and now the Jews. So that just leaves straight white men as the only major demographic he hasn’t tried to pander to.

(No, I’m not holding my breath either...)

...on second thought, this isn’t even pandering per se... it’s just a flat-out lie.

Million, er, billion. Or “shmillion”. Numbers are not Barack’s strong point. He KNOWS there always more to be squeezed from the capitalist goose. He doesn’t care about numbers, except insofar as he can sling them around to sound knowledgeable and persuade the foolish.
