All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Wrong-Way Obama

When a course of action is considered to be unsustainable most people would stop. Not President Obama. When he determines something is unsustainable he does more of it. For example, last year he said the deficit spending pathway we are on is unsustainable. So what did he do? He increased spending and will continue to do so until our national debt is larger than our gross national product. Yesterday, in a conference with Mahmoud Abbas, a man without standing in Gaza, Obama said the current situation in Israel is unsustainable. So what does he do? He gives $900 million of taxpayer money to Abbas for the people of Gaza, most of which will wind up in Swiss banks for use by the Abbas and his friends, much in the same way as the previous billions given to the PLO have found their way into the bank accounts of Arafat’s widow. Then Obama puts the onus on Israel to solve the problem by removing its naval blockade of Gaza, which will result in the transfer of weapons from other Middle East nations to continue the offensive against the Jewish state. So the Obama solution, despite his rhetoric, is the obliteration of Israel, a goal he may share with Iran, HAMAS, Hezbollah, Syria, Louis Farrakhan and Reverend Jeremiah Wright, among others. The most unsustainable part of this entire fiasco is the Obama Presidency. A Presidency that is apparently capable of making the wrong move almost every time.
