Where's President Obama?

Where's President Obama?

He's quite a world traveler. But not to Israel. An oversight? Or an indication? According to a front-page story in the Washington Post two weeks ago, Obama has pursued a strategy of putting "daylight" between the U.S. and Israel. He's traveled to the Middle East multiple times -- to accept an award in Saudi Arabia, to give a major speech in Cairo, to hold town hall meetings in Turkey -- but never stopped to visit our closest ally in the region.

Today ECI released a 30-second TV ad called "Postcards" that highlights Obama's "daylight" strategy. In a significant buy, it will appear today and Monday on MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News in Washington and New York, and through next week on broadcast and cable in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.

Let's go to the videotape.

I really like this, and hope they will keep pounding on that theme.

Saturday night and Sunday are Tisha b'Av. Posting will be very light until mid-afternoon on Sunday.

Shabbat Shalom and an easy fast to those of you who God forbid have to fast (if the Messiah comes before then, it becomes a day of rejoicing and then we won't have to fast).

Clearly Obama will never set foot in Israel. His faith forbids him.

President Barack Obama would visit Israel in a second term, a top campaign surrogate said.

“We can expect him to visit Israel in a second term, should he be re-elected,” said Colin Kahl, a former deputy assistant secretary of defense for the Middle East, who is now a campaign spokesman on the region.

The call was timed ahead of this week’s trip to London, Poland and Israel by Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential candidate.

Kahl and others noted Obama’s visit to Israel as a candidate in 2008 and that a number of other presidents did not visit Israel in their first terms.
