An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 21 May 2011
Now there are 4 declared candidates. Of the 4, this guy is my front runner. Not saying I’m 100% convinced, but for right now…. In my opinion, he is, of the four, the most conservative. I’ve heard all kind of nonsense about him and the Federal Reserve. Get over it people. He doesn’t work for them anymore, and his comments about it not doing any good to audit them? Well, he’s likely right. People like that can hide anything they want, and you wouldn’t know, one way or the other. I found his speech today to be quite interesting, and thought I’d share….just in case ya missed it.

Obama’s faithless pledges to Israel
The White House was caught by surprise by the furor over President Obama’s statements on Israel in his major foreign-policy speech on Thursday. Mr. Obama’s defenders pointed out his position is consistent with long-standing administration policy, which explains why the peace process has been a raging failure.
Apparently, the WH is in a constant state of surprise since the majority of the American people haven’t been jumping for joy every time Obama decides he’s going to dictate to others what they should do.
At one point, there was promise of hope and change. On June 4, 2008, then-candidate Barack Obama made an address to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) carefully calculated to appeal to Jewish voters concerned about his views towards Israel. “Let me be clear,” Mr. Obama said. “Israel’s security is sacrosanct. It is non-negotiable. … [A]ny agreement with the Palestinian people must preserve Israel’s identity as a Jewish state with secure, recognized, defensible borders.” In 2009, however, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton established the 1967 lines “with agreed swaps” as one of the starting points for negotiations.
I’m getting the impression that no one in the Obama administration is acquainted with reality. The reality in the Middle East is that Israel has a very tiny strip of land in which they actually have flourished, and Obama wants to take away a large portion of that land, and give it to people who have done NOTHING to create, or promote a peaceful existence with their neighbor. Land for peace does NOT work. It hasn’t in the past, and it sure won’t in the future.
Mr. Obama also pledged in 2008 that it would be his policy that “Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided.” This pledge was broken almost immediately upon taking office. White House demands in 2009 that Israel freeze new construction – which the administration referred to as “settlements” – in eastern sections of Jerusalem effectively affirmed Palestinian claims on the city, which they envision as their own capital.
It should have been apparent, to anyone with half a brain, that after sitting in a so called church, listening to a pastor (and mentor) rant about the evil jooooooooooooz, there was no way Obama could be pro-Israel. His entire upbringing was based on the evils of America, capitalism and Jews. But no. The sham was bought, hook, line, and sinker. While in Israel right after the election, we happened to be touring the tunnels by the Western Wall, with a small group of Jews from New York. The tour guide asked them what they thought of the new president. The response? “We LOVE him! He’s so WONDERFUL!” When the guide asked why they felt this way, they really didn’t have a coherent answer, just more of the hopey changey nonsense. The rest of us just looked at each other, embarrassed that an American, especially a Jewish American, could have been so hoodwinked.
During the campaign, Senator Obama made a LOT of promises to the American people. He did promise a ‘fundamental transformation’. He’s kept that one. America has transformed into a country I do not recognize. America has deserted her closest allies, and embraced those who would destroy her.
