President Obama is taking some huge risks with his reelection campaign. Why would he jeopardize a reelection bid? He fully knows that with any American election it’s all about, what the Bill Clinton administration campaign coined, the “Economy Stupid.” Surely Bill Clinton must have advised the President that alienating Israel would not bode well with the American Jewish community. Albeit for different reasons, both Israel and the Arab nations are mistrusting America more than ever before. When President Obama pressured Congress to terminate the Keystone pipeline, he created a stronger global dependency for foreign oil. In effect, this funneled money to the Arab oil producing nations. Further exacerbating the already strained economies of the Western nations, he forced the price of oil to skyrocket. It certainly did not improve relations with the Arab nations for their citizens hate the U.S. even more than ever. When he sent a message to Russian President Putin that he will perform some sort of deal with him, but it will have to wait until after Obama’s reelection, raises even more suspicion. To say that foreign policy is not his strong suit, is the understatement of all time. But his hidden agenda of socializing the United States will be even more detrimental to the freedoms of the American people.
The above comments are correct but the one of all importance is missing; a mad man leading a radical regime in Iran cannot be allowed to have nuclear weapons. The timing of our election should not be the issue. Obama missed a great opportunity when we did not support the uprisings within Iran a couple of years ago. We are seeing the results of the Obama/Clinton policy of leading from behind across the Middle east and the rest of the world. Not even attending intelligence briefings is a disgrace to the presidency and the nation. How far do we have to fall before our electorate wakes up? Or, are we too busy cashing our government checks?
I agree with anon above in terms of Iran’s nuclear reactor may be detrimental to the security of Israel. However, the way this situation is being dealt with amounts to little more than a dangerous game of saber rattling. History has taught us that Israel would NEVER allow any Iranian reactor to be constructed without the diplomatic brakes being applied by the Obama administration. Out of the blue, on June 7, 1981 an Israeli jet flew over Saudi Arabia and bombed the French designed “Osirak” nuclear reactor in Iraq. This caught the entire world by surprise. The United Nations were livid with the reports of this sneak attack. But Israel, owning a similar French designed nuclear fission reactor near Dimona, realized the weapon potential of the residual nuclear waste material. Therefore, if the Obama administration were to grant Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the green light, the Iranian nuclear power plant would not exist today. This begs the question as to what is President Obama’s agenda regarding the Middle East? This is why Netanyahu, for good reason, is so very cold when dealing with this administration.
Yes, it continues to amaze how little the media presses Obama on these matters. Of course, they are assisting him run out the election clock; at the expense of domestic and foreign policy issues that cry for full exposure and discussion.
Ahem. Alan Dershowitz. Ed Koch. Give me a break. Dershowitz is scholarly, but hardly an impartial observer, having described himself as so emotionally tied to the country that if he had two lives he would spend one there. Koch is just hardly.Pretty girl, love those eyes. I've always hated kids and dogs in starring roles and I think the writers tried, but I'd say they didn't succeed in her knowledgeable opinions appearing natural to her. And who wants to be lectured by a young woman with pretty eyes?As to the issue, I don't really know what to do about Israel. We can't allow them be vaporized. We can't let them dictate our foreign policy.Given the money we've spent on them, they've been a poor investment if we had wanted them to like us. But that's also true of France and half of Europe. OK, I exaggerate, three quarters of Europe.I don't often agree with Obama, but if he dislikes/distrusts Netanyahu, from what I've read he's probably right.
