The situation between Israel and Iran is heating up dramatically. Yesterday, Iran boasted it has a missile that can reach any Israeli city. For years, Iran has been loud and clear about it’s intense desire to incinerate Israel. The IAEA has conceded that Iran is on the verge of having nuclear weapons. With all this, Israel is rightfully nervous. So, naturally, Netanyahu wants to talk to the country that is, ostensibly at least, Israel’s greatest ally. And keep in mind that, even if we’re not Israel’s greatest ally (I think Canada probably is right now), we’ve technically been at war with Iran since 1979.
So what does Obama do? He says “No, I will not talk to you PM Netanyahu.” And why won’t Obama talk? Because he is too busy:
Yup, it’s right there on Drudge (in the upper left hand corner): Obama’s “schedule full.” This is a guy who spent more hours on the golf course than he did either spending time at his national security briefing or meeting with his job’s council. So one has to ask: Does Obama think that a potential Armageddon is not a good reason to cancel just one round of golf?
Obama, is a very, very bad man:
UPDATE: How could I have been so wrong? The President didn’t snub Netanyahu, a friendly nation facing an existential threat, because the President wanted to play golf. Really! What was I thinking? I don’t appreciate our President at all. The reason he’s got a full schedule is so that he has to go on the Letterman show. That explains it, of course. My bad.
I guess he also needed time to spend on September 11, a sacred day of mourning to many Americans, campaigning (although he promised not to do so) and apologizing for Americans’ exercise of Free Speech. What a guy! What an American president. Really, it makes me all teary eyed to think that he’s ours.
