If he has ever criticized the President, he may well be:
In an off-mic situation, Obama and Sarkozy are discovered not to trust Netanyahu, and Sarkozy went so far as to call him a liar. Not only did Obama refuse to defend him, but chimed in by saying he has to "deal" with the Israeli prime minister every day.
The disdain of these two world leaders for their ally was apparent. It is also apparent that the president's support of Israel publicly is only a facade.
I truly hope the American people are taking serious notes now that they have finally seen our president's true feelings about Israel and the fact that the uneasiness that has been created since Obama's tenure is deep-seated and very personal.
So Obama can continue to give hollow speeches trying to ease the concerns of his Jewish constituency, but alas the dirty laundry is out in the open for everyone to see and finally understand.
Let me get this straight. If someone, quite correctly by the way, notes that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is a Lair, is it fair to deduct that the speaker must hate Israel or is anti-Semitic? Or does it just mean the speaker does not like a particular leader in that country?
By extension, if someone, say Armstrong Williams, criticizes President Obama - who is black, does this mean that Mr. Williams must hate black folks and is a racist? By Armstrong Williams logic yes it does. But Armstrong William's logic is wrong and it would be improper to suppose that Armstrong is a racist because he criticized the President.
Teabaggers get pissed off whenever someone casts their opposition to the President's policies as Racist. The President is black. Teabaggers, who are mainly white, oppose what ever he proposes. Therefore it would be proper to conclude, using Mr. Armstrong's logic, that the Teabaggers' opposition is motivated by racism.
This logic is faulty as pointed out above. Surely some Teabaggers are racists. Polls demonstrate this as being a fact. Racists, according to polls, are drawn to the Tea Party. However most Teabaggers do not associate with the Tea Party due to racial animosity. Most Teabaggers are partisan Republicans who associate with the Tea Party as means to oppose a President of the opposite party.
We really need better wingnuts.
