Privately, of course--or at least when he thought he was speaking in private--he has kvetched with France's Sarkozy about "liar" Bibi's supposed intransigence. And he publicly shafted Israel's leader in a most outrageous, rude and unstatesmanlike manner during the latter's now infamous visit to White House. (Dirty Dancing memo to Barry: You don't put Bibi in a corner). And we know that in the private recesses of his own mind, Obama views the Israel-Palestinian contremtemps a la his good pal Rashid Khalidi and other denizens of the faculty lounge. And if there's been another American president who has worked harder to undermine Israel's sovereignty, I can't imagine who it might be.
I try not to pat myself too much on the back, but this administration has done more in terms of the security of the state of Israel than any previous administration. And that's not just our opinion, that's the opinion of the Israeli government. Whether it's making sure that our intelligence cooperation is effective, to making sure that we're able to construct something like an Iron Dome so that we don't have missiles raining down on Tel Aviv, we have been consistent in insisting that we don't compromise when it comes to Israel’s security. And that’s not just something I say privately, that’s something that I said in the U.N. General Assembly. And that will continue.
Nor can Charles Krauthammer, and he's, like, really smart. (H/T: JB)
