"One of the most exasperating qualities of Barack Obama is his insistence on casting himself as a victim when people disagree with his policies. Its bad enough when he does it at home, but last week he tried it on the foreign stage and made a jackass out of himself. When asked to explain why Israelis dont trust him, he implied its because Israelis are bigots: During the interview Wednesday, when confronted with the anxiety that some Israelis feel toward him, Obama said that some of it may just be the fact that my middle name is Hussein, and that creates suspicion. I guess President Obama must have slept through the briefing when his staff informed him that Israel and Jordan have a peace agreement approved by then-King Hussein of Jordan. Maybe his Secretary of State should have reminded Obama; after all, it was her husband that helped negotiate it. " Hot Air Obamateurism of the Day Bismarck. A regular Bismarck.
