But one upset anonymous commentor believes we are obsessing about Obama, to which I responded, "I'd be happy to ignore Obama - if only Obama would ignore us."
But the ObamaCommentator then said that, "Obama is not obsessed with Israel. Israel is obsessed with Obama. The number of times he has given speeches about Israel is relatively small."
So I decided to check on that, using the White House Press section as my source.
This is what I found:
I present the Obama-Israel Checklist for last week.
Aug. 21 Ramadan Kareeem speech. Obama mentions Israel.
Aug. 20 White House Press Briefing. Gibbs said that Obama just spoke with the King of Jordan about... Israel.
Aug. 19 White House Blog. Obama's blog talks all about Israel and Obama's talking all about Israel.
Aug. 18 Obama spoke with Mubarak about... Israel.
In 4 out of 5 workdays last week, Obama spoke about Israel.
Correction: (thanks Lurker)
Aug. 17 Obama's Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, held talks with Hosni Mubarak about... Israel.
In 5 out of 5 workdays last week, Obama spoke about Israel.
I think only Healthcare was mentioned (a lot) more.
That's not obsessed?
This is not an anti-Obama blog. It's a pro-Israel, pro-Settlement blog. If Obama is constantly mentioning Israel in a negative light, then we certainly reserve the right to respond in kind from time to time.
If he stops, we'll stop.
