Reader comment on item: Obama vs. McCain on the Middle East

Submitted by Sofa Sogood (United States), Jun 9, 2008 at 09:01

OBAMA'S THURSDAY DENIAL OF WHAT HE HAD PROMISED ON WEDNESDAY HAS REMOVED THE NEED FOR THE FOLLOWING POST. THE POST IS WRONG. HE DIDN'T EVEN BOTHER TO WAIT MORE THAN A FEW HOURS. WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT HIM? WERE SOME CONCERNED ABOUT HIS CHARACTER RELATING TO LIES ABOUT HIS CHILDHOOD? CHARACTER? I DON'T SEE ANY CHARACTER.

Terrified and cowering inside, but putting on a big show of bluster outside, while faced with what obviously is in his estimation, the overwhelming and intimidating power of Evil International Jewry in the form of the infamous "Israel Lobby" who run the entire world behind the scenes, Obama told them everything they want to hear--contradicting all he has previously said, demonstrated and worked for prior to this occasion and prior to the occasion of his other confrontation with that other fearful bastion of unrelenting power brokers, the retirees of Boca Raton.

Sitting there with their bulging fangs and frightening manner, they threatened to withhold his cheesecake dessert, and he couldn't help but cave in.

Under the bus went his former words [this constant wound, this constant sore, infects all of our foreign policy] and all his past work raising funds for the Palestinian cause ($75,000 for the Pro-Palestinian Anti-Israel Arab American Action Network, etc.), fighting for tearing down the "Wall," etc., etc., including his work persuading voters that Iran is no big threat -- all under the bus!

(Actually, I can picture him conferring with an aide as he put his speech together. "Now. what is it that the Jews believe and want to hear?" He must, at least, be given credit for doing some research on this, which is more than can be said about many of his other speeches. Except for the part where he claims (and supposedly agrees with Israel) that Israel went to war with Lebanon solely for the two soldiers, and the part where he talks about a "contiguous" Palestine (which, of course, negates his claim of desire for a secure Israel), he did fairly well in mimicking what he thought would likely get him the most applause.)

It'll probably continue this way, and by the time election is near, our Obama's stated platform will be almost identical to McCain's. Maybe, by then, he will even say a few kind words about George W. Bush, if he thinks it would be to his advantage to do so.

[Would it be fair to ask if this might be a sample of how he'd show American "strength" during his "negotiations" with Ahmadinejad?]

There are still those who believe his AIPAC speech "words" about his "true" feelings and beliefs.

Others though, might instead rely, for their evaluation of him, on who he has actually associated with for 20 years, what he has voted for, and which causes he has actually put his effort into working for.

And besides this, although a candidate might not agree with all the opinions of various advisors, it's assumed that advisors are on the same team. A quick glance at all of Obama's advisors will inform as to what direction his policies will go.

Once he's in office, there's no doubt he will "explain" why his policies just "seem" to be the exact opposite of his campaign promises.
