Obama: I Try Not to Pat Myself on the Back [on Israel]
Real American super-hero and friend to Jewish people everywhere Barack Obama held a campaign fundraiser in Manhattan Wednesday night. The Jerusalem Post reports that the event was held at the home of Jack Rosen, chairman of the American Jewish Congress. Having alienated many Jewish voters after demanding Israel return to pre-1967 borders, Obama is working to shore up his Jewish base leading into 2012. Rosen, a staunch supported of Obama admitted, “”it would be remiss for me not to say there are many in the Jewish community who are concerned” about the current state of American relations with Israel.
However, Obama obviously is not concerned. “I try not to pat myself too much on the back, but this administration has done more for the security of the state of Israel than any previous administration,” Obama said. “We don’t compromise when it comes to Israel’s security … and that will continue.”
Yes. You read that right. There’s not much more I could add to that. I wonder if Obama also tries not to pat himself on the back for doing more to destroy the American economy than any previous administration. Does he try not to pat himself on the back for presiding over the first S&P downgrade in American history? Does he try not to pat himself on the back for loaning billions in taxpayer money to failed green energy companies? It must be nice to live in the Obama’s world. I wonder if there are unicorns there too.
