    "If somebody was sending rockets into my house where my two daughters sleep at night, I'm going to do everything in my power to stop that," ... "And I would expect Israelis to do the same thing"

    clear and well-said, something we haven't seen in a pres. for 8 years

    Isn't that a comment from last summer, though? And not with respect to the current situation? Not that it matters a great deal, but I don't think he's said anything about the specific events going on now.

    It's what he said in July when he went to Israel.

    I don't think he's said anything about Gaza yet, either. But he got the issue dead on.


    And Swingvoter... link your quote.

    Thanks.

    Well look who's quoting him, past and present:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/29/washington/29diplo.html?_r=1&em

    Regarding the above, I agree with him. He needs to be 'quiet' on this type of foreign matter.

    I wonder what he'd do to the terrorists that cut off the electricity, food, medical supply, fuel and water to his little girls for MONTHS? Maybe he should have a wall built around him, maybe his home should be bulldozed to make room for the 'democracy'

    I wonder who told him to say that? Perhaps Rahm Israel Emanuel wrote that and Obama just read it off his teleprompter.

    I am glad the Republicans lost. Hehe!
