In which Obama changes his stripes to remain true to himself

Posted in obama, politics at 7:16 pm by ccagirl

Less than 24 hours after telling assembled Jewish lobbyists that Jerusalem must remain the undivided capital of Israel, Obama “clarified” his statements:

“Well, obviously it’s going to be up to the parties to negotiate a range of these issues. And Jerusalem will be part of those negotiations… As a practical matter, it would be very difficult to execute [a policy of the capital remaining undivided.]”

Way to go, Barry. Obviously when it comes to serious matters of foreign policy, you sure stick to your guns olive branch. To whoever happens to be pointing their gun at you at the moment. Barack Obama: Bringing foliage to gunfights since 1972.

He also just cosponsored a bill that would require national fingerprinting of those evil harbingers of capitalism, mortgage lenders.

And he wants to tax the profits of oil companies – who are doing nothing other than making money off a product millions of consumers are buying – and supposedly “give it back to the consumers”. Uh huh. Because this Rube-Goldbergian scheme is the only way he can avoid coming face-to-face with the easiest way to actually lower the price of gas – drill here. No, we can’t even think about ways we can actually be independent of foreign oil.

That would offend the God of Political Expediency Environmentalism, to whom Obama worships faithfully.
