"This is Yad Vashem!"

(I'm breaking my self-imposed exile, only because this little tale so illuminates who Barack Obama is, and perhaps who - or what - he isn't.
“But he has nothing on at all,”
And at least the Israelis - literally, the world's canary in the coalmine - are not afraid to shout it out...)

Via Gateway Pundit, we go to the great land of Israel - Barack's latest stop on his WorldWide Gaffe Tour - and find that Mr. Obama refuses to take a position on Iran's gleeful march to "Auschwitz: The Sequel":

An Israeli journalist called out to Obama: “Can you ensure that there will be no second Holocaust?”

Obama walked into the museum’s main building without responding...

Once again an Israeli journalist asked the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee how he’d help prevent a second Holocaust.
"Senator can you assure Israel that there will be no second Holocaust despite Iran's threat to wipe us off the map?" he asked.

Obama demurred, saying that it wasn't appropriate to answer the question there.

"This is Yad Vashem!" the journalist responded.

...and the name means not a whit to Barack Obama, only concerned with the photo op, terrified to speak without the Teleprompter - a mere guppy, who has suddenly found himself in very deep waters, as it slowly dawns on him that his smooth, slick movements will not protect him from the dark, hungry creatures that are circling all around.

Out of his depth, out of his league, and a danger to the whole free world should he ascend to the throne....

It always comforts me to find a post from you...glad you came back, albeit only temporarily...hopefully longer.

There are a lot of subjects I dare not conquer in the vast universe / swamp of politics, among them the economy / taxes / interest rates, global warming etc...these are things I am simply not educated on, so I find that I am not qualified to speak on these matters.

Fortunately for us all, I am also not running for POTUS (I've inhaled, sniffed, snorted, you name it, and have no qualms about sharing the details of my mildly shady youth).

That said, I know more than enough about single party systems, deportation and genocide to qualify myself to speak on the subject and it frightens the butthairs out of me that a possible future POTUS (please, Hashem, no...I beseech you) did not find Yad Vashem an appropriate enough place to condemn the sworn murderers of the Jewish people.

He's gonna be president, and we're all gonna be screwed. Scares the crap out of me, for real.

IS this assclown really going to be president? I'm not so sure.

Remember, with virtually 99% of the media coverage (and 100% of that adoring), he still holds barely a 3point lead in most national polls.

Imagine if he was actually running against someone!

We the people are smart, they the media are pretty dim. Bunch of celebrity-wowed star-chasing lightweights.
