The worst of what I feared about an Obama administration has already been brought to me in Bush’s flailing last days. Socialism, huge expenditures during a recession that will lead to inflation, and complete abandonment of Israel and the greater war against radical Islam, has been capped off by the US abstaining in a UN vote which calls for a cease fire by Israel.
UPDATE: As Tigerhawk points out, Canada stood alone before a United Nations human rights council yesterday, the only one among 47 nations to oppose a motion condemning the Israeli military offensive in Gaza.
The only hope is that now that Israel is alone and America is waffling, maybe she’ll stand on her own and ruthlessly defeat her enemies. Maybe now she’ll realize she can’t win fans anyways, and that America’s defensive umbrella is coming apart from strong winds.
So when news comes that Obama is going to talk to Hamas, it hardly phases fazes (sheesh!) me. Especially when, as Creeping Sharia points out, Obama’s team has been talking with Hamas for quite some time.
- Hamas Endorses Obama
- Hamas says it held meeting with Obama advisers
- Hamas Leader Says Ready To Talk To President-Elect Hussein Obama
- Barack Obama’s Gaza Campaign Office
- After meeting Hamas terrorists, Carter endorses Obama
- Obama declines to criticize Carter on Hamas
The real worry, is that if Bush has gone this far to the left, what will happen to an already extremely liberal, Barack Obama.
