Obama campaign responds to Obama’s comment that Israel is a “constant sore” that infects all US foreign policy [Karl]
Imagine the press release needed to explain Barack Obama’s comments in The Atlantic:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
In an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg published on The Atlantic’s website, Barack Obama referred to Israel as “thisÃ‚Â constant sore,” thatÃ‚Â “does infect all of our foreign policy.”
This comment should not be taken out of the context of the entire interview, in which Obama also called himself a “friend” of Israel and that his fondness forÃ‚Â the Exodus story speaks to his own belief in Black LiberationÃ‚Â Theology, as taught by his longtime spiritual adviser, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, but without knowing that Wright called the 9/11 attacks “chickens coming home to roost,” the reasons why Wright gave Louis Farrakhan a Lifetime Achievement award, or that his church bulletin reprinted a Hamas manifesto.Ã‚Â
Any similarity between Obama’s comment that “the lack of a resolution to this problem provides an excuse for anti-American militant jihadists to engage in inexcusable actions” and that “chickens” comment is only in the minds of those who seek to distract the American people from the real issue in this campaign, which is Obama’s “judgment to lead.”Ã‚Â After all, nobody has spoken out more fiercely on the issue of anti-Semitism than Barack Obama, according to Barack Obama.
Barack Obama has been described as having “99 percent of the voting shares,” but heÃ‚Â is of course just one of hundreds of advisers to the Obama campaign, much like the steady stream of Israel critics the campaign has distanced itself from these past months.Ã‚Â Obama is just a guy who Obama tends to see around the mirror as he gets ready each day to bring the audacity of hopeyness and changitude to the American people.Ã‚Â Our candidate gets overzealous, and starts saying things thatÃ‚Â Obama would not say.
We are confident the establishment media will do its utmost to spike these distracting comments by its favored candidate.Ã‚Â There is nothing to see here.Ã‚Â These aren’t the droids you’re looking for. MoveOn along.
