Barack Obama Shows That He Can Pander And Fold As Well As Any Other Politician

As we’ve noted previously, the conventional wisdom holds that the Jews totally hate Barack Obama. But maybe not anymore? The Democratic presidential nominee has been trying to for a while to parse away some hard-to-miss hints of his possible pro-Palestinian tendencies, but his best attempt clearly took place yesterday at a conference held by AIPAC, America’s biggest pro-Israel political organization. There, the Democratic nominee put on such a good show that Hamas almost immediately revoked its previous, unsolicited endorsement of the great hope merchant. The key to pleasing the pro-Israel crowd, it seems, rests not with playing up how awesome it’s gonna be when you finally meet with a country that wants to wipe the Promised Land off the map, but rather with strongly suggesting that you’re pretty much in the bag for whatever the Israel lobby wants.
