    Obama says Israeli government is "extreme right" and that Netanyahu doesn't want "any restraints"
    "The President described Israel’s government as having been extreme right and said that Netanyahu, just like any other world leader, does not want 'any restraints...'" I guess that means that Obama doesn't want any restraints, either. But in any case, his use of the term "extreme right," coming from a hardcore Leftist like Obama, shows his contempt and distaste for the current Israeli leadership, and desire for a government that will be more compliant, lying down and dying in the face of the Palestinian jihad.

    "Obama Gets Copy of Washington Letter" by Nathan Guttman in the Jewish Daily Forward, June 5 (thanks to the ZOA):

    ...When asked what lesson he had learned from attempts to broker an Israeli–Palestinian accord, the President responded that his key takeaway is that “it’s really hard” and that trying to get the parties to agree entails great potential for misunderstanding. Obama attempted to dispel the notion that he had pressured Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu unfairly and said that his administration was, in fact, “more attentive” to Israel than to the Palestinians.

    The President described Israel’s government as having been extreme right and said that Netanyahu, just like any other world leader, does not want “any restraints,” and does not want to be seen as a weak leader. On the Palestinian side, Obama sounded even more pessimistic, telling the audience President Mahmoud Abbas may not want to close a deal and that his views “have deteriorated” to the point at which the window of opportunity for a peace agreement may have already closed. Obama did pledge, however, that the United States would keep trying to promote peace....
    If there was any doubt, doubt no more. Obama is anti-Israel and his gyrations that he isn't are just false. And before any liberals on the board say "oooo but he did ____ and ____ and he didn't _____", save your breath. In his heart of hearts Obama is anti-Israel. I suppose if a flaming 'progressive' were running Israel and he/she told the people to run into the street and wait for the bomb to hit them, then Obama would not be anti-Israel.

    Strange how liberal label anything and anybody right of moonbat lunacy as "extreme" right or "extremists," yet they run from the liberal label. If any group is "extreme," it would be the group trying to demolish the Constitution, not the one attempting to abide by it.

    The fact that they allowed those savages to live this long shows remarkable restraint.
    Real restraint would be for for O Blah Blah to shut his enormous piehole for 10 minutes or stay off the golf course for a week.

    No, no, no.......We want him on the golf course as much as possible. When he's playing golf, he isn't trying to destroy the country.

    I am merely pointing out what real restraint would be. I want the goofy nerd out there as much as possible also.

    I realized I shouldn't let this go by without comment.

    Obama Plays Golf for the 100th Time of His Presidency
    The money shot:
    George W. Bush gave up golfing in 2003, explaining his rationale five years later in an interview with POLITICO, saying it was wrong to play during wartime:
    I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.
    Obama clearly disagrees and has been unperturbed by criticism of his golf, maintaining a steady pace even during an election year.
    And for a memory that screams hypocrisy:
    Flashback: Axelrod called (GHW) Bush 'out of touch' for playing golf in a bad economy
    Video from 1994 has surfaced of David Axelrod, President Obama’s chief campaign strategist, calling former President George H.W. Bush “out of touch” for “tastelessly” playing golf while trying to convince voters that the economy is improving.

    “Bush tastelessly did it, often from the ninth hole, and from the cigar boat and other places,” Axelrod said.

    Added the adviser: “The impression you got was that he was out of touch.”

    Throughout his presidency, Obama has been known to hit the links nearly every week.

    Axelrod explained in the 1994 interview that if “you cite these statistics that say the economy is improving, you almost do political damage to yourself.”

    “If you stand up and claim great progress, you are only frustrating this alienated middle class more,” he said.


    For being such a supposed 'high tech president', it's hilarious that this is even an issue.
