    Mornin USC. This morning they said 70% of Israelis don't have a favorable opinion of BO peep.


    Oops.....I shouldn't have let that out into the Open, huh?

The majority of Israeli's believe they will prevail in another all out war with Arab countries and next time will take them all down.

    What I want to see is what Jews are saying about this within their own communities....I doubt it will get democrats any new votes...
    Looks like the lefts refrain that his speech to Congress would hurt him at home was diametrically opposed to the truth. Imagine that.

    Mo'nin. I dont blame them one bit. Pissing on our closest allies is what Obama does. The chickens are coming home to roost.

    and we are to ignore Obama's attempts to demean him and interfere with Israeli elections why?

    FFS if a thread on Obama can be turned into a ****ing prolonged debate about BUSH, why in the **** should not comment on the fact Obama tried to sway this election and LOST. AGAIN.

    for the record? This is called "Debate Politics"...and Obama is politics and we are here to debate. If it gets too rough now that the veneer has baked off the rock star, I know an all-Obama site where you can control all that is said about him....

    Re: Netanyahu poised for third straight term as Israel PM after chief rival concedes

    In my opinion, it was this administration that thrust Netanyahu to such a big victory. Just days before the election a story broke about an annual report delivered recently to the US Senate by James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, removing Iran and Hezbollah from its list of terrorism threats. try selling that one to the Saudi's the Jordanians, the Egyptians, the Yemenis, the Lebanese and the Israelis. The Israeli people certainly don't see it that way. So Netanyahu's message of national security trumped the Union Labor Party who focused on economics. After a report like that coming from this administration, it became obvious those running the show on foreign policy currently in the WH do not have their best interest at heart.

    602 days till the next election..........God help us.

    Let's see who tops the list of America's best friends..

    Canada? No ****ing way

    France? Hardly

    Britain? Maybe, if there's money in it

    Ukraine? Ah.....no

    Mexico? Probably as they get to export criminals and the poor.

    I know, Libya! where Obama and Clinton changed a corrupt regime.


    That leaves Saudi Arabia, Iran, and ISIS.


    Good friends to have in time of trouble

    Since Obama gets his news not from advisors or credible sources but rather the media maybe the Netanyahu victory hasn't gotten to him. He has been very busy lately filling out his NCAA bracket and appearing on Jimmy Kimmel and ESPN. Such a busy job he has.

    has he been near a tv?

    That's where he learns ****.

    Right, I can see him with Valery punching holes in the wall as the results came in. "****, ****, ****..." like a Seth Rogan character who has lost his stash

    Re: Netanyahu poised for third straight term as Israel PM after chief rival concedes

    My thoughts on Israel's election are as follows:

    1. Israel's people have voted. They voted in the fashion they felt best serves their needs and their country's needs. I, for one, respect that choice.

    2. The U.S. and Israel have vast common interests and a deep enduring relationship. Whether the Zionist Union or Likud had prevailed and gained the opportunity to form the next government does not change any of this.

    3. Given those shared interests, enduring relationship and, of course, my personal admiration for what Israel's people have accomplished in myriad fields and endeavors--often in the face of severe adversity--I continue to want Israel to be secure and prosperous. Those sentiments would not have changed had Israel chosen a new Prime Minister. They won't change when, at some point in time, Israel has a new Prime Minister.
