Oh For Goodness Sake
Haaretz is reporting on the recent meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Obama.
When asked if he was concerned about Israel perhaps mounting a bombing mission to cripple the Iranian nuclear program, Obama replied:
“I think the relationship between Israel and the U.S. is sufficiently strong that neither of us try to surprise each other, but we try to coordinate on issues of mutual concern.”
Later during the interview, Obama was confronted by growing anxiety that some Israelis feel towards him, he drops this little gem:
some of it may just be the fact that my middle name is Hussein, and that creates suspicion.
Yeah, that’s it. It’s just the middle name, nothing more, right? Nothing about publicly rebuking Israel on everything from legal housing settlements to protecting themselves from terrorism, is it? Or maybe providing money and moral support, even indirectly, to groups like Hamas or Hezbollah? No, probably not, it’s just that people in Israel must be too dumb to see past his middle freakin’ name.
The next thing you know, the White House will be telling us that the entire nation of Israel must be just a bunch of raaaaacist Tea Party Protesters. Isn’t that what they are saying about us out here now, that we’re just too stupid to understand how wonderful everything will be once we hand over total control to him?
Get over yourself, Barry. It’s not all about you, all the time, you idiot. Maybe, just maybe people have seen your agenda, in its true form, and just reject it on its own merits.
Nothing personal, dude.
