On Spam and Israel: Why is Obama Silent?

I’ll make this short and sweet.

Since the election in November the American people have been “treated” to a statement or press conference of some sort from the imaginary “Office of the President-elect” on a daily basis. The subjects of said publicity stunts have ranged from the economic stimulus package, to increasing taxes, to appointments, to dealing with the Blago scandal, to how “outraged” Obama was that people took photos and drooled over his shirtless beach body, and finally to how normal Obama is because he eats SPAM wrapped in seaweed. (I’m having flashbacks to John F. Kerry’s attempts to be normal by stating that he “had a man standing at the ready with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.”)

Yet, Israel is attacked by the Hamas terrorists once again and suddenly Barack Obama remains silent. Suddenly, he is trying to respect the current president and not interfere. If you buy that I have a shady land deal in Chicago to to propose to you.

Obama’s silence on this matter speaks volumes. Israel better do whatever they need to do in the next 3 weeks because once “The One” takes office, they will find that a once steady ally has gone wobbly.
