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.

Narcissism Hits A New High

We all know that President Barack Obama is a narcissist. And we all know about the National Basketball Association (NBA) strike/lockout. But what do they have in common? Until Friday, November 18, 2011, nothing. Then the “The First Ever Obama Classic Basketball Game,” a reelection fundraiser was announced.

Obama’s re-election campaign has recruited more than two dozen NBA stars for a fundraising basketball game to be played in Washington D.C. on December 12, 2011. Ticket prices range from $100 (for the “nose-bleed” section) to $5,000 (for courtside seats), with the money going to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising account by the Democrat Party and Obama’s re-election campaign. According to the Obama campaign website, the first $5,000 of a contribution goes to the Obama Victory Fund 2012. If a donor chooses to give more he or she can give as much as $30,800, with that contribution going to the Democrat National Committee.

The Obama campaign says it has not yet determined whether Obama will attend the event, let alone suit up for it.
