Quoting billzeke:

I do believe that the Israeli's understand us well enough to realize this guy is just a flash in the pan and "This too shall pass.". He treats the British even worse than he treats the Israelis. If you were an Isralei, what would you think about an American President who seemed more concerned about your country building new homes in the West Bank than they do about our mutual enemy; who has called for your annihilation; getting nuclear weapons???



Point well taken, Bill.  I would think he is an idiot.  And--from your lips to Gods ears--a "flash in the pan."

Quoting Curious2078:

The very thought is legitimate cause to go mad, Bill.  Don't even go there!!!

 

How many real friends do we, the USA have left in the world, now that Obama has insulted most of our long-term friends?

 

Israel, I hope and pray, looks not so much to our current administration, our current president, as they do to the people of the USA.  From my lips to God's ears--I hope that's true.

Quoting billzeke:

President Truman was also instrumental in allowing for the creation of the state of Israel and he authorized the use of the Atomic bomb against Japan in an effort which shortened the war and saved American lives. 

 

I shudder to think what our current President would have done with those difficult decisions...

"Now we have elaborate explainations to justify just about all we do."

 

Migliore---Harry is probably rolling over in his grave.  On the other hand, no doubt he is laughing.

 

It just doesn't get any more clear, more honest, than THE BUCK STOPS HERE.  I wouldn't much care which party a new Truman belonged to.  I would vote for him.

D,

Harry Truman also said "If you can't trust a man with his family, what can you trust him with?"  Now we're more sophisticated than than and watch shows like "Two and a Half Men" so we can see Charlie Sheehan being a much better role model for getting the most out of life than President Truman could ever be.  After all the Man from Independence was kind of simple.  Now we have elaborate explainations to justify just about all we do.
