Boehner: Obama has “coddled our enemies and pushed our friends aside”

posted at 11:40 am on June 13, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

How far out on a limb has the Obama administration gone in their handling of Israel? Jake Tapper hosted a debate between John Boehner and Steny Hoyer on This Week earlier today, and about the only point of disagreement was whether there was any disagreement at all. Boehner accused Obama of having “coddled our enemies and pushed our friends aside in the process” of handling the Mavi Marmara incident and its aftermath. Israel, Boehner says, now has serious doubts about the US commitment to its closest ally in the region. Hoyer rushed to insist that Boehner’s view was … well, pretty doggoned mainstream even in the Beltway:

“This is not a partisan difference,” Hoyer said. “I strongly support Israel’s actions…It is appropriate to have a blockade to make sure they don’t get the weapons or other materials [for]…terrorist acts. I think they did exactly the right thing in stopping that [ship].”

You know who else thinks the Gaza blockade should stay in place? Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas — and Egypt:

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is opposed to lifting the naval blockade of the Gaza Strip because this would bolster Hamas, according to what he told United States President Barack Obama during their meeting at the White House Wednesday. Egypt also supports this position. …

One of the points that Abbas raised is that the naval blockade imposed by Israel on the Strip should not be lifted at this stage. The European diplomats said Egypt has made it clear to Israel, the U.S and the European Union that it is also opposes the lifting of the naval blockade because of the difficulty in inspecting the ships that would enter and leave the Gaza port.

Abbas told Obama that actions easing the blockage should be done with care and undertaken gradually so it will not be construed as a victory for Hamas. The Palestinian leader also stressed that the population in the Gaza Strip must be supported, and that pressure should be brought to bear on Israel to allow more goods, humanitarian assistance and building materials for reconstruction. Abbas, however, said this added aid can be done by opening land crossings and other steps that do not include the lifting of the naval blockade.

If everyone agrees that the naval blockade should remain in place, and everyone saw the violent reaction aboard the Mave Marmara when Israel enforced it, then what’s the problem? Why isn’t the Obama administration telling Turkey and other Hamas apologists to pound sand? Obama has managed to brilliantly position himself slightly to the extreme side of the Palestinian Authority. This must be what Obama meant by “smart power.”

No one should be surprised at any of this whatsoever. This very small man was far to the left of the self-described socialist, Bernie Saunders.

This was a statement by Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit on Nile-TV. It was made on the «Round table show».

Adul Gheit claimed Obama told the Arabs to show patience. Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic issues, like the Health care reform, he would show the Muslim World how to deal with Israel.

Boehner was right. Dems and the MSM need to take a long long look in the mirror and search themselved to find out why they so needed to perpetrate the fraud that is Obama on the nation. They lied, they obscured and they smeared the competition…even today they are more interested in Palins breasts that the boom in Maine…to anoint this Barack Hussein Obama to the presidency.

No interest in the Sestak scandal either (but you will note, if you look, that a certain reporter’s family from the Philly area contribute heavily to him).They have aided this Alinsky-ite administration every step of the way.

The way you can tell that the conservative support of Israel is genuine, is that conservatives never get any credit for it, certainly never gain much credit from American Jews, and yet they do it anyway. They do it because they support all democratic nations that support us, especially if they’re lonely democracies, surrounded by thugocracies.

Here’s what I wrote in the Obama says he’s not anti-British thread:
Have your wife pat the Queen on the back.
In exchange for an exquisite & thoughtful gift, give the Queen an iPod full of your speeches.
Give the PM a cheap DVD collection.
Return the Churchill bust.
Have Hillary put the Falklands in play.
Bash “British Petroleum” repeatedly, even though they changed their name long ago.
No, there’s no evidence of anti-British sentiment here.

The biggest threat to the world is that the United States is considerd the leader of the free world. It is dangerous when the leader of the free world elects a president that is obviously incompetent and every action he takes brings our economy closer to bankruptcy. As the decline of our nation continues, the world’s confidence in our leadership erodes proportionately. With the biggest ecological disaster in our country’s history being handled in such a haphazard way, it only reinforces that fact. As long as Obuma is president, hope is just a word.

pearson on June 13, 2010 at 12:07 PM

Obama counts on Americans being confused by this issue enough that he can smuggle in his own anti-Israeli scheme in the guise of a humanitarian imperative. This is always his M.O., i.e., a bad-faith deception hidden within the complexity of an issue. Just like healthcare. In that case, the larger goal was seizing control of a chunk of the economy. The larger goal in this case is the end of Israel, and this is just one more opportunity to achieve it. It’s all about the opportunities.

Both the Right and the Left understand that both the PA and the Mubarak regime are corrupt and undemocratic. The Right’s answer is to deal with them only when necessary to maintain Israeli security and contain terrorism. The Left’s answer is to throw in with the jihadis on the romantic assumption that extremists are not only more democratic but incorruptible . Well, take a look at Iran’s theocratic nomenklatura . That is the future of a triumphant Hamas.
Only some combination of Israeli sovereignty and Palestinian Arab autonomy amounts to a constructive alternative, but I doubt the will exists in either Israel or America to engage in affirmative nation-building for such a dysfunctional people, and we certainly won’t get any bright ideas from Captain KA & Co.

No–that is revisionist thinking.
Republicans, for the most part, did not “coddle the other side of the aisle and throw the base aside during the Bush administration…(sic) is what got us all into this mess.”
The Republican Congress from 1994-2006 got some good legislation passed and they’ve done a masterful job since the Immaculation of holding back Obamunism.
Obama got us into this mess all by himself, aided by the Democrat-controlled Congress.

The Axis being Turkey/Iran and who else? Jordan? Syria? They’d partner with Chavez and Kim Jong Il—maybe Russia? The world is hurtling towards a tipping point and we are along for the ride by the feckless Carter administration act II.

- Pass school vouchers to cut the lib hold on our children’s education. Instead they passed the Bush-ENNEDY education bill.
- Cut spending!!! Obama has got half his spending bills through by saying, “The Republicans did it first.”
And need we discuss MCCAINE – Feingold?
And how many of your Republicans voted for TARP???

You can stay a die hard Republican if you wish, but I will never again give to the RNC. However, I have supported Republicans like Inhofe, Bachmann, and others who have been consistant conservatives and I will continue to do so. Suggest we all use our money and our votes to urge Republicans to adhere to the conservative principles the party is based on.

In foreign policy, we’ve got the makings of the Obama Doctrine: coddling our enemies while alienating allies.
The administration eased sanctions on Cuba and sided with Chavez against Honduran democracy. They won’t bring up human rights with China because, quote, ‘we know what they are going to say.’ They offer tepid sanctions on North Korea and ‘gold stars and cookies’ for the Sudanese President. They send letters to Iranian mullahs but can barely muster a word of support for the Green Movement seeking freedom and women’s rights in Iran!

The question we should be asking is how we are going to get him out of the White House before the mushroom clouds form.

Answer: Investigation, impeachment and/or forced resignation due to public outrage for his criminal negligence, dereliction of duty and cover-up (there is now a government imposed blackout on all coverage by land or sea and a Gulf-wide no fly zone in place since Friday)
- in Obama’s Massacre of the Gulf.

It is telling that he has the confidence in his power over the American people that he will nationally address (blame)the spill and cleanup on Tuesday to reward and further obscenely empower himself,

Incredibly, he seems to be getting away with using his presidential sabotage on all means to contain the spill to pass cap and tax. But, he has been very successful in stealing over 2 trillion from the people, communizing health care and taking over 60% of a free market economy.

Patriots, wake up!!!

WE MUST NOT let him reward himself and bury us in the process for something that deserves removal from office, if not hard time in Leavenworth.

WE the People, imo, are wasting this crisis. This is the perfect opportunity to send obama back to the hell he came from. Why isn’t there more white-hot outrage and unceasing demands from all conservative quarters for his investigation and removal?

I posted last night my new name for the administration: Saboteur Hour.

Hey, tigerlily, kind of along the lines of what you’re thinking with the “INVESTIGATE” part of your plan:

Newsmax is reporting that Sen. McConnell is questioning the fact that BP helped write the cap-n-trade bill:

“Let me say that again. A major part of the Kerry-Lieberman bill was written by BP. This is clearly an inconvenient fact,” McConnell emphasized.

“An administration that seems to spend most of its time coming up with new ways to show how angry it is at BP is pushing a proposal that BP actually helped write,” said McConnell. “I can’t understand it, and I don’t think the American people will understand why it makes sense to respond to the BP oil spill by imposing a gas-tax increase on the American people that was advocated by BP.”

Glad someone’s asking questions… may lead to evidence of corroboration…

Thank you for the link. I googled that information earlier and found it on Alex Jones’ inforwars.com. Anybody familiar with that site? There’s scary $$it on there. Are they conspiracy theorists or is their info viable?

There’s nothing smart or powerful about Obama’s foreign policy, his secretary of state, or himself.

Everybody else can see the truth behind the incident between Israel and the terrorists that were on that boat, as well as all previous incidents. It’s not that Obama can’t see the truth just as well as anyone else, it’s that he just doesn’t care, and he’s doggedly determined to railroad those dirty Jews that he’s hated and taught himself to hate even more deeply, thanks, probably, to his family, and definitely by Wright, Farrakhan, Ayers and the rest of his rogues gallery of friends. In his own book, he said that automatically gravitated toward the dregs of society, and that’s because they represented the values he upheld, and continues to uphold to this day.

Florida Senatorial candidate Marco Rubio agrees with Boehner.
He spoke the Republican Jewish Coalition in Florida this week and echoed Boehners concerns.
Pretty impressive stuff if you ask me.

I just added Part two of the speech on Israel. It’s REALLY even better than the first part. He Blasts the Obama administration and “goes off” on Iran.

It’s time we accepted that Barack Obama is an utter failure as president, and start taking steps to mitigate the damage as best we can. The first major one, of course, is to make a drastic change in Congress this November, so that we can hamstring Obama’s agenda (if this incompetent even has one). After that, hopefully, we can start repairing the rifts in our friendships, and use a firmly administered cluebat on our enemies, and in 2012, get rid of the worst presidential administration we’ve ever had.

Hope and change, people. Yes, we can.
