You gotta love the Obamessiah. He just keeps piling on the unappealing admirers.
During an interview on WABC radio Sunday, top Hamas political adviser Ahmed Yousef said the terrorist group supports Obama’s foreign policy vision.
“We don’t mind–actually we like Mr. Obama. We hope he will (win) the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle, and he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community but not with domination and arrogance,” Yousef said in response to a question about the group’s willingness to meet with either of the Democratic presidential candidates.
Philip Klein of The American Spectator cornered Obama’s chief strategist David Axelrod for a response. This is the tapdance he got:
Axelrod focused on the Kennedy portion of the quote, and was “flattered” by the comparison.
“I like John Kennedy too,” Axelrod said. “That’s about the only thing we have in common with this gentleman from Hamas. We all agree that John Kennedy was a great president, and it’s flattering when anybody says that Barack Obama would follow in his footsteps.”
……I followed up by asking Axelerod why Obama didn’t urge Jimmy Carter to not meet with Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal.
“He said today that he fundamentally disagrees with Jimmy Carter,” Axelrod said.
But I reemphasized that Obama never said that Carter shouldn’t do the meeting, and then Axelrod launched into a straw man argument about personal freedom.
“He said that it was ill advised, that he shouldn’t do it, but that he can’t. We actually don’t have any ability. This is the United States of America. We don’t have any ability to go seize someone and neither does the President of the United States, who also asked Mr. Carter not to do it.”
But nobody is urging Obama to seize Carter. The debate is over why he can’t take a moral stand against an ex-president who is meeting with a terrorist group.
I began asking another follow up question on why Obama said Don Imus should be fired, which was a private matter, but would not take a moral stand in the case of Carter.
But a frustrated Axelrod turned away and took another question.
Is this all the Demrats have to offer America besides the Hildabeast?
Let’s see, Barack Hussein Obama so far, as accumulated Louis Farrakhan, Daniel Ortega, Jeremiah Wright, and now, Hamas among his admirers. He’s a human bug light for despots, terrorists, and hate spewers. No wonder the democrats love him.
Hell, if this keeps up, he’ll get a Nobel Peace Prize.
