Although after a year and some in office, is he still a rookie or is he just plain damn dumb? If he's gonna have only four years, I don't think "rookie" is how he can be described more than a quarter of the way through his tenure. But I digress.
Evidently members of the House of Representatives are less than impressed with Barry's fumbling diplomacy with Israel, historically one of our closest allies. More than three-quarters of the House membership (that's 327, to be exact), signed a letter to Obama expressing their dismay over the "highly publicized tensions" in US-Israeli relations. The letter's lead signatories were Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Steny Hoyer (D-MD). Hey, Barry, that's real bipartisanship!
As Allahpundit at HotAir writes: It provides a measure of just how far out of the mainstream the Obama administration has gotten on relations with Israel.
Whether Obama's diplomacy with Israel (including keeping Benjamin Netanyahu cooling his heels while Obama had dinner "with the girls") was by design, as some think, or whether it was purely "instinctual hostility towards Israel," as Allahpundit suggests, with advisors like Samantha Power surrounding him at the White House, no one should be surprised at the hostility that has surfaced in the Obama administrtion towards Israel.
Grow up, Champ.
I love the commenters at HotAir.
"After Obamacare, he is like a drunk who drives home without getting caught. He thinks he now has free reign to be as reckless as he wants to be."
"Anyone who didn’t know this was coming was extraordinarily naive. What anti-semitic/Marxist church did he attend in Chicago that no “moderate” Republicans wanted to bring up? But according to RINO’s, like Peggy Noonan, he was going to govern as a centrist. What dupes."
"And soon congress you will know how it feels to be ignored . . . just like the people."
"He didn’t explain it well enough. The average person can’t comprehend his brilliance. He is a lightworker..a transcendent being. Very evolved."
"During his meeting with Netanyahu maybe Obama was thinking WWMD; what would Mohammed do?"
"Obama is not just an amateur, he is an idiot on a mission."
"Meanwhile, all my Jewish friends are still blaming Bush and ridiculing that dumb redneck Palin."
