Awesome: David Gregory Defends Obama By Claiming "Prominent Views" In Israel Supported His Speech, But, When Asked "Who?," Stammers And Literally Cannot Name Anyone
Update: Jubicon?

Top men.


Top. Men.

DAVID GREGORY, “MEET THE PRESS” HOST: I just want to make a point here. Joe, I disagree with you. This is not just the view of the White House in terms of what they think Israel ought to accept. This also reflects prominent views within Israel that this speech was actually good news for the Israeli government for some of the points that have already been laid out here.


JOE SCARBOROUGH, HOST: Obviously, we talked about earlier, on the minds of a lot of people inside the White House and the state department is the U.N. vote coming up this fall, David, and this is seen as leverage obviously for that. We’ve talked about that. But you said this is also seen as good news for some in Israel. What major Israeli public figures have come out supporting the President's speech?

GREGORY: Well, I (stammers), I don't think there have been major public figures that have, but some of the commentary that’s coming out of (stammers) the commentary in the press there and others who are looking at the situation are, are recognizing that some of these factors diplomatically are actually positive for Netanyahu.

Just take my word for it, I'm David Gregory, and I'm paid to make up lies for the White House on television.

So many prominent people, golly gee willickers, I can't think of any! It would be unfair to single out a few of these prominent people at the expense of the others!

But... there is "commentary"! Here and there, there is "commentary"!

Anyone want to bet his "commentary" is from the Huffington Post or Daily Kos?

I can't wait until David Gregory reports on one of those liberal-favorite stories like "Tim Pawlenty failed a pop quiz on Asian leaders."

Mr. Prominent Voices.

Video at the link. Thanks to De Debil Himself.

I Expect So: Some of Obama's defenders in the media are calling Netanyahu the guy who did wrong, because, after a series of demands laid upon Israel by Obama, he said he "expects" Obama to reaffirm security commitment, and liberals are trying to claim this means he's trying to bully America.

America? Or President Trouser Crease? And "expect" can simply mean "expect."

It seems like they're really reaching. Who knows, maybe they think that Obama might have really done himself some damage.

Ah: Prominent views, he said, not voices. Same thing, but I botched the quote.

Jubicon? Ed Koch, who's been conservative-leaning for years but has always maintained his Democrat registration and supported Obama, says that's it for him. He's says he'll support "the right" Republican candidate in 2012.

“I believe this is the most dangerous and critical period that Israel has ever faced and regrettably it does not have the support of the President of the United States, which in past difficult situations it could count on.”

Koch, who crossed party lines to support President George W. Bush against John Kerry in 2004 due to his foreign policy stance, said he would do it again. All it would take is the right candidate.

“I’m a Democrat. I support the Democratic domestic philosophy and policies and will always be supportive of them,” said Koch, mayor of America’s largest city from 1978-89. “But I have no hesitation in crossing party lines when I think America’s interests demand that I cross party lines.

“I supported President Obama, believing he would be good on foreign policy, particularly with respect to the support of Israel. It turned out badly.”

Uh, it's turned out badly for everyone.

He adds that Jews' complete bitchslapping and beclowing by the post-FDR liberal coalition is bad for Israel.

Thanks to Hussein the Plumber.

Funny: Netanyahu calls for America to return to 1845 borders.

No, seriously, that's the point: A war was fought and one nation won.

I said this today: Israel occupies Palestinian in much the same way as America occupies Indian land and Australia occupies aboriginal land. Or, for that matter, that the genetic population we call British occupies Welsh or Celtic land.

Land won by conquest is not given up. Not when a new population actually puts down roots. Period.

The entire problem here is that the Muslim world, and Obama, encourage the Palestinians to continue fighting a lost war, forever and ever and ever.

Rather than pushing the Palestinians to accept the facts created by a lost war -- and thus spare lives, as everyone adapts to reality -- the left, the Muslim World, etc., continue encouraging the Palestinians to win back by the sword what was lost by the sword.

And that's fine... if Israel gets to unleash the sword too, and put an end to this.

I think that is what will end up happening, and it will not be Israel's fault. It will be those who refuse to tell the Palestinians to make a new life for themselves, a real life, rather than killing endlessly to get back a lost one that is never coming back.

At least, not without Iranian nukes.
