Not Being Funny About Obama

Ralph Peters had a piece in the New York Post on November 1, 2008 as if we were already in 2012, looking back and it is entitled Obama's Triumphs Abroad.

Here's one excerpt:

Looking back on the four years of his first administration, President Obama can be proud: He made the US welcome among the family of nations again; he reduced our reliance on military force; and he gave us peace by reaching sensible accommodations with our enemies.

The lies told about him in the 2008 election were exposed as sheer bigotry. Far from being "soft on radical Islam," President Obama was the first world leader to welcome Jewish refugees after Iran's nuclear destruction of Israel's major cities (his only caveat - a fair one - was the refusal to accept Zionist military officers and their families, in light of Israel's excessive retaliation).

That is not funny.

But what is really sad is that so many of the MOTs (Members of the Tribe) voted for a man of whom we know little, whose experience in government is little, whose contact with other world leaders is little and who ran such a media-backed-and-supported campaign which provided him the advantage (see: LATimes affair).  One who didn't know the difference between "Jerusalem undivided" and just plain "Jerusalem as the capital of Israel".

But maybe Israel will end up receiving Jewish refugees from America?
