    I bet everyone is wondering why I put this in the politics forum.

    This is why.

    You are shitting me.

    Unbelievable on several levels. Who knew the WH didn't know this fact?

    And the WH is full of pussies - Obama being the premiere pussy - who cannot even take a stand on something.

    This is not diplomacy - this is weakness and spitting in the face of one of our most strategic allies.

    Awesome foreign policy, Obama. Awesome.

    Yeah wow that was a tough one. These guys really really suck at geography and the obvious......No wonder the world loves OBama as they laugh at him, they like having an incompetant American administration.

    So the white house press guy doesn't want to answer completely pointless questions meant to disrupt a news conference? I don't blame him for ignoring the useless loudmouth twits in regards to their pointless question that seems to be way out of context. There comes a certain point when the person in the front just has to ignore the rabble and let them make the stupid assumptions they wish.

    If only they ignored disruptive twats more often we might get something done.

    Oh, and the only people who admitted to not knowing the capital was the woman who was playing a game and the loud guy next to her. If it was geography class and the teacher ignored the question there might be a point, but this is a damned white house press conference, and not a college class. Go back to your office and google it, don't waste the white houses time asking them for geography lessons.

    The WH will not say that the capital of Isreal is Jerusalem because they don't want the heat from the Muslim community. This is the only reason why.

    Only problem is that every day, this WH pisses friends of the United States off. Ok, I'm over exaggerating with the every day part, but still, when a sitting President will not recognize a country or their capital, it's bad news.

    Also, I think the question was asked after the BBC in a report said the Jerusalem was the capital of Isreal and a few Muslims in England got Butthurt over it.
