Maybe bo could be an example to palestinians and israelis by talking to the
Republicans and actually working on something bipartisan. Instead of engaging
from the bully pulpit and laying blame on everyone elses shoulders.
Who was it ripping Obama a week or so ago for meeting with GOP lawmakers over
breakfast? I think the term "charm offensive" was used, and not in a
obama speaking under a picture of yasur arafat.....priceless
So what's Barack wearing on his head? Recall at Georgetown university
Barack WOULD NOT speak until they REMOVED the CHRISTIAN CROSS. I would think
that an 'actual' Christian would be honored to speak in front of a
Christian cross....but maybe that's just me being logical.I look forward to
Barack speaking at the Vatican....better start removing all the crosses now...
Nice to see that Barack has NO problem speaking in front of the father of modern

pipe and drape wasn't high enough by itself to fully cover the IHS and
cross above the GU seal and it seemed most respectful to have them covered so as
not to be seen out of context."The Rev. Thomas Reese, a senior
fellow at the Woodstock Institute at Georgetown University, who said he
didn't think "this is motivated by theology, but by communications
strategy."... I know... not nearly as sensational sounding as
Everything is symbolic for this President. Peace Prize, Hope and Change,
Budgetary and Fiduciary responsibilities, immigration and birth certificates,
owning and using a gun, etc.
I don't think it's possible to give the Peace prize to YOURSELF. Too
bad there's no award for warfare they could have given Bush - "Mission
I am glad to hear of the events of Obama's visit to Israel. It appears
that relationships are being strengthened between the two friends and allies.
The US needs Israel, and Israel needs the US. Our relationship is mutually
beneficial and crucial to remain strong.I give credit to both Obama
and Netanyahu to move beyond the tensions of the past few years.
