Reporters have been asking the Messiah and his transition team several times now for his thoughts on the violence between Hamas and Israel. If Obama is curled up in a fetal position hoping desperately that this situation is going to go away, he should brace himself for some bad news. With Israel sending ground troops into the Gaza Strip, it's almost a certainty that Israel's military operations will last more then sixteen days. So far the only response Obama's transition team has muttered was that he is "monitoring
" the situation. Obama now can't pander to Muslims and then Jews like he did during his campaign. As President he has to actually come out with an official position one way or the other. Obama isn't use to making decisions that could have negative political consequences. I still remember when Obama was asked by Rick Warren about his position on abortion. Obama stuttered wildly then gave a lame answer that, "It's beneath my pay grade
". As a State Senator in Illinois, Obama voted present on many legislative bills, because he was to scared to take an official position pro or con. The days of him threading the political needle and trying to have his cake and eat it too is over. Thank goodness, I never expected nor do I expect Obama to be a strong decisive leader. Now people will finally see what I and many others have already known .
On a side note: It looks like Israel is going for Hamas's throat. Israel's Prime Minister has given the order to send ground troops into Gaza to weed out Hamas. I hope they are successful with as few Israeli causalities as possible, and I hope they systemically wipe out Hamas for good! GO ISRAEL!!!
