We just discovered that David Axelrod, consigliere for The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer, told an Israeli news outlet this week TWMDCO once said, ”You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office.”
Daniel Greenfield provides this piercing opinion of that preposterous claim:
“At the last White House Chanukah dinner, he claimed to have a Jewish soul. At a synagogue speech last month, he called himself ‘an honorary member of the tribe’. Now his former senior advisor has quoted him as saying, “I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office.”
“Of course Barack Obama has also been Irish. He stated, ‘I consider myself an honorary Italian, because I love all things Italian’. Newsweek dubbed him “The First Woman President” in 2008 for ‘bending gender conventions’ and promoted him to ‘The First Gay President’ four years later. Cabinet Secretary Lu and Congressman Honda argued that he was ‘The First Asian American President’”.“If you make up an ethnic group or race, by tomorrow Barack Obama will be a member of it. By next week, he will be lecturing it on why it isn’t living up to their shared values.”
This week TWMDCO is in Kruen, Germany for the G7 Summit where he and Chancellor Angela Merkel sat down to a traditional Bavarian meal of sausages and beer. Despite all the “making nice”, raised tensions between the two over the spying scandal and the bugging of Merkel’s mobile phone still exist.
The White House insists that economic sanctions against Russia should remain until the “full implementation” of the Minsk II Peace Accord and Putin respects his neighbors’ sovereignty.
None of the world powers believes the economic and diplomatic punishments levied on Russia for its alleged aggression in Ukraine are changing President Vladimir Putin's calculus, yet there are no plans to shift strategies.
The president thinks he’s gained respect for America in Europe. Privately the leaders are appalled at the cowardice and low-class behavior of this administration. Here, in this country, we’re just waiting to see how he embarrasses himself next.
