Obama castigated by Congressional Democrats

Three Congressional Democrats - Anthony Weiner (NY), Joseph Crowley (NY) and Shelley Berkley (Nev) - held a press conference on Wednesday night in which they castigated President Barack Hussein Obama for going too far in pressuring Israel.
"I think the president went beyond where I think it was appropriate for us to go in dealing with another democracy," said Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner. "Any conversations about settlements, which are perfectly reasonable, have to be coupled with a sincere effort on the part of the Palestinians."

He told a press conference, "We have to be careful not to cross the line where it sounds like we are exerting the overwhelming pressure that we have at our disposal on our rather isolated ally." Democratic Congressmen Shelley Berkley and Joseph Crowley also were present and backed the statements.

Rep. Berkley stated, "We are very, very concerned that the statements were made so publicly to such a close and strong ally as the state of Israel."
The only 'consolation' in all this is that there are many other American allies (Britain comes to mind) who have also been abandoned by Obama.

By the way, the picture at the top is a merchant in 'impoverished' Gaza City selling Obama mugs.

Obama's friendship with everything and everybody is in fact a hatred to everything and everyboby!

All those campaign contributions and all they have to show for it are Obama mugs? No wonder the world feels sorry for them. I hereby raise the cry for Obama T-shirts as well. (it is all so absurd that all I have left is (admittedly no so good) humor.)

What did Obama have to show for his speech in Cairo today? Nothing. It will be quickly forgotten and nothing will come of his grand initiative to change the Middle East.
