No wonder Big Guy had to launch his Mideast Charm Offensive: USA Today reports that the U.S is now less popular in the region than at the end of the George W. Bush administration(!).
Perhaps if their reporter had attended last night’s State Dinner in honor of BO they would have felt otherwise. It was, well, charming:
So, with gratitude for your life and your service, and as you prepare to celebrate your 90th birthday this summer -- and since I’m starting to get pretty good at Hebrew -- (laughter) -- let me propose a toast -- even though you’ve taken away my wine
-- (laughter.) Come on. Bring another.
How are you?
SERVER: Here you are, sir. (Applause.)
THE PRESIDENT: A toast -- ad me’ah ve’esrim. L’chaim! (Applause.) Mmm, that's good wine. (Laughter.) Actually, we should probably get this out of the photograph. All these people will say I'm having too much fun in Israel. (Laughter.)
Here are a couple other highlights of BO’s too fun trip:
And of course his meeting with Yityish Aynaw. Who knew? If Big Guy had a Jewish daughter…she could be Miss Israel!
Speaking of race - and it seems we always are - here’s another little issue back on the homefront that might get out of hand if BO doesn’t get back pretty soon to resolve it.
It’s about our illegal alien situation; apparently we have some people questioning our deportation policy. They want to know why Ricky and Big Sis don’t want to deport this family:
Butt they do want to deport this evangelical German family seeking asylum for the religious right to homeschool?
I realize that the evangelical family is unlikely to vote even once let alone 3 or 4 times for the Democrats whereas the MS-13 family is a lock; and I really hate to be the one to bring this up, butt isn’t this policy a little…uh, racist?
I understand this whole issue evolves around human rights. Apparently wanting to leave Mexico to secure your human rights to receive food stamps and health care from the U.S. government is a human right, butt leaving a country where home schooling is outlawed is not. Especially, now that Big Guy plans to outlaw home schooling here.
Because, as we all know, it’s the government’s job to indoctrinate your children, not yours. You might get something important wrong. Like “Why might the United States might be a target for terrorism?”
I’ll leave you today with a little sample of doKtor dreiDel’s “art”. Big Guy’s got it on his iPod and you should have it too:
Oh sure, it’s no Beyonce (role model for Big Guy’s daughters), or even Jay-Z, butt it is timely.
