Obama chose to snub Benjamin Netanyahu during a tense meeting in the White House in 2010 over settlements in the West Bank. He abuptly got up and left for an hour to have dinner with his family, leaving Netanyahu to fume. Now Obama needs the Jewish vote and is forced to play nice.

Maybe Netanyahu has forgotten Obama'a arrogance ......

One would imagine, when what appears as a paranoid wealthy person, has the means to transport his friends to Israel, then close the events to the press, that individual (Mitt Romney) would have a better chance at at receiving a warm welcome,

Obama also just promised a bunch of money to Israel for defense. His internal polls must really show a huge loss of the liberal Jewish vote. I'll bet that defense money promised is not going out until after the election. And then, maybe never, if Obama wins. Obama has been sounding like a conservative Republican with some of his ads and speeches this last week. Obviously that so called "gaffe" about "you didn't build your business" has hurt him a lot. I say "so called" because I believe that is the true Obama. But, to win the election, let the tri-angulation begin. It worked for Clinton. Hopefully most voters will see through the facade Obama is trying to put on now for re-election purposes only.

Mitt has promised transparency.

Mitt has continually mocked President Obama for not being transparent.

Then we read that Mitt

"...repeatedly has broken with the practice of presidential candidates in both parties in disclosing more. He's refused to release the names of the fundraisers who tap friends and business networks to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for his campaign, and has said he'll release only two years' worth of tax returns...".

Why does Mitt mock President Obama and then resort to the same behavior he mocks?

What's Mitt hiding?

"What's Mitt hiding"?

* his money in Swiss banks

Question is----"What's Obama hiding"? Let's see his college application form. How did he pay for a Harvard education, than not know how many states in our country, or that Hawaii wasn't a part of Asia? Didn't know the capital of Israel.

Need to give both Mitt and Barry standardized tests in math, science, business, IQ, and American History, for us to compare.

It'll be Obama that's doing the hiding.
