Israel is a strong friend of Israel
~ Barack Obama, July 22, 2008
If John McCain had made a gaffe like that, the Obama campaign would never let us hear the end of how "confused" the war hero candidate is.
But I dare you to try to find any coverage of this, except in the blogosphere. I heard the audio on Laura Ingraham this morning, which is the only way I know it happened. This will never be repeated by the MSM cheerleaders on Obama's grand Surrender Tour. Their sacred duty is to protect the Obamessiah from the slightest negative coverage.
As to the possible psychological implications of such a goof, is Obama really telling Israel "you're on your own"? As always, we really have no idea where Obama stands on this (or any) issue. Let's hope that we--and Israel--don't have to find out the hard way.
