The Prime Minister of our best ally in the Middle East, and maybe in the world, wants to meet with the President while they are both in New York. Obama said he’s “too busy”, and yet had time to visit with Whoopi Goldberg and friends on The View.
Something is terribly wrong, and for the life of me I can’t understand why the polls don’t show it. President Obama just snubbed Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu in favor of The View, and yet his support seems to hold in the polls.
Think about it. The Middle East is on fire, literally. An American Ambassador was murdered in an attack the Administration still says was caused by a movie. Iran has promised to “wipe Israel off the map”, and is ever closer to having a nuclear bomb. Israel is in fact contemplating a pre-emptive strike on Iranian facilities, perhaps any day now. And in this context, the President chose “The View” over Bibi. This is absolutely astounding.
That all said, let’s grab a few quotes from the President and first lady during their appearance on The View. First, the President made the comment in regards to his appearance: “I’m just supposed to be eye candy for you guys”. Huh? And then, the humble and frugal first lady described how she wanted to take a “long vacation”. Long vacation? Apparently her taxpayer-funded vacations over the last 4 years weren’t enough, including family vacations to Spain, Martha’s Vineyard, Aspen, South Africa, Panama City, Vail, Maine, Hawaii, or Botswana. All in just 4 short years, with 8+% unemployment for the little people. Let them eat cake.
The most telling moment, however, was when the President was finally asked a substantive, yes or no question as to whether or not the Libyan embassy attack was “terrorism”. As we all know, the answer to this question is “yes”. But the President seemed unsure. His answer? “There’s no doubt that the kind of weapons that were used, the ongoing assault, that it wasn’t just a mob action. What’s clear is that, around the world, there are still a lot of threats out there.”
Our current Commander in Chief. Should we hire him again, or fire him? The answer is not a difficult one.
