2012: Obama's legacy

As readers of this blog know, I have yet to take an official position on the US elections -- and have poked at Pallin and Obaba equally.

Longtime leftist-sign-fighting friend and ally, Cyrano, sent me the following today.

Looking back on the four years of his first administration, President Obama can be proud: He made the US welcome among the family of nations again; he reduced our reliance on military force; and he gave us peace by reaching sensible accommodations with our enemies.

The lies told about him in the 2008 election were exposed as sheer bigotry. Far from being "soft on radical Islam," President Obama was the first world leader to welcome Jewish refugees after Iran's nuclear destruction of Israel's major cities (his only caveat - a fair one - was the refusal to accept Zionist military officers and their families, in light of Israel's excessive retaliation).
Read the rest of it here at the NYPost.

PS: I find it scary that Israel Radio and IDF Galei Zahal Army Radio only refer to the Reuters/Zogby polls of McCain vs. Obama, yet never those that show a much closer race (AP for example) I'd love to to a McCain upset -- if only to see the Israel's media's disappointment.

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael טובה הארץ מאד מאד

I think the Israeli stations will be delighted if the polls turn out "wrong". Then they can say that it happens in America too.

"...and have poked at Pallin and Obaba equally."

Last I checked Obama is running against McCain, not Palin.

palin is the albatross around McCain's neck.

Renegade: yes, Obama is running against McCain, but he's not as easy a target as Pallin is. (Though I'll probably out up the SNL sketch on him as well :)

Shimon: Their delight in Obama winning is the only thing on their mind.
