In yet another uninspiring performance by our unengaged and unengaging president, this time a press conference at the end of a three-day U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington, D.C., Barack Obama discussed, among other things, the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas which, according to The One, ¡°we¡± have achieved.
It¡¯s not entirely clear just how ¡°we,¡± meaning the president, his feckless Secretary of State John Kerry, and his utterly incompetent foreign policy team (but at least they¡¯re loyal ? the most important characteristic for employees of any petty dictator), helped achieve anything other than the emboldening of Hamas, which led to the death of many more of Hamas¡¯ human shields. Obama further asked how ¡°we build on this temporary cessation of violence.¡±
It is unclear whether Hamas will go along with Israel¡¯s offer to extend the ceasefire beyond its original 72 hours, which will determine how they who are actually fighting might or might not ¡°build on¡± anything. As for what ¡°we¡± might do, well, Martha¡¯s Vineyard is very nice this time of year.
Showing his further detachment from reality on the subject ? or more likely his ingrained anti-Israeli bias ? Obama claimed (twice!) ¡°I have no sympathy for Hamas.¡±
Well, isn¡¯t that special?
