No, of course not

Obama: ‘No crisis’ in U.S. ties with Israel

Nah, no crisis. But I’m sure if we send Biden back they’ll taunt him further. What’s the point of having a jester if you aren’t allowed to laugh?

Crisis implies you’re concerned if there’s a non-optimal outcome.

So, the President says there is no crisis. Let go to the tape shall we? 1) the President insists that no new settlements en toto is the centerpiece of his peace efforts; 2) the President condemns the construction of apartments in an area that is in Israeli jurisdiction in any peace plan (oops!); 3)Because of no. 1, and the President’s ignorance of no. 2, the palestinians and Hamas have no choice but to protest and cause problems. As a left center rag stated, this set back talks for years. That is sure smart power. I am hopeful the adults will be back in charge soon.

When the Iranian Republican Guard are cracking heads of protesters in the streets of Tehran, it’s not really a big deal to Fearless Leader Barack.
In that instance, Obama wants us to respect the authoritarian regime’s approach to conducting law & order.

But when apartment buildings are being constructed in Jerusalem, it’s a big deal to Obama. That’s when a government is really acting out of control.

Then again, Obama does count Khalid Rashidi as a close advisor on these matters.

Eric, once I read your comment I couldn’t help but imagine Netanyahu saying, “Now go away, or I shall taunt you a second time!” Biden couldn’t be more comical if he arrived clapping together two halves of a coconut shell.

Biden: I have ridden the length and breadth of Palestine, I mean, the Middle East, in search of Israelis who will join me in peace talks at Camelot, I mean, Washington.

Netanyahu: What do you mean, “ridden”? You’ve got two empty halves of coconut and you’re banging them together.

Biden: So? I have ridden since the snows of winter covered this land…

Netanyahu: That was early 2008. You weren’t here, you were too busy campaigning!

Biden: Well, uh, I have ridden through the kingdom of Syria, through…

Netanyahu: Where’d you get the coconuts?

Biden: I found them.

Netanyahu: Found them? In Syria?

Biden: No, back home in Delaware.

Netanyahu: So you didn’t find them, you mean you bought them in a supermarket.

Biden: No, I found them by the roadside. I concluded that some swallows brought them up from Florida. In fact, I calculated that it could be done if two gripped the coconut by the husk…

Netanyahu: You’ve always been meshuganah, Joe.

Biden: Give me credit for trying, at least this thing about coconuts and swallows isn’t plagiarizing anybody!

James, That was exactly what I was thinking but couldn’t verbalize. Of course it’s not a crisis to Obama. Why would it be?
