The Biggest Difference Between the U.S. Presidents Bush and Obama

I really don't see any big policy, ideological difference between Republican Bush and Democrat Obama when it comes to Israel and our keeping (or rights to) the Land we liberated in the 1967 Six Days War.

  • Neither recognize our rights to be in the Jewish neighborhoods like Ramot, Ramat Eshkol, Gilo etc. 
  • Neither supports Israel's annexing Judea, Samaria etc.
So why didn't Bush get the condemnation that Obama keeps getting?

It's simple.  Obama's speech writers, the people he pays to write his speeches about Israel and to Jewish audiences aren't as good as the ones that Bush used.  Remember that being a good actor, reading a pre-written speech with sincerity and pathos is a requirement for the American Presidency.

It's pretty well known that Eli Wiesel was involved in the writing of Bush's best "Israel speeches," and nobody is more eloquent on the subject.  Obama's speech writers just don't know how to make him seem like he truly cares about Israel's survival.

Typically the president has to approve of his speeches. Obama really doesn't care. Check that, he does care about showing his contempt for Israel and his own country.

Which is probably why a president has to be a born here. You can fairly say that most presidents for good or bad really wouldn't sell the country out.

Bad as Bush and Clinton were I have them back in a heart beat. Anyone but Obama.

Obama is a pathetic exception.

Obama and his staff think that all Israel and Jews want is aid, those shopping coupons for American weapons. His speeches are cold, like he seems to be. Elie Wiesel added history and depth to the Bush speeches, so Jews and Israelis thought he "understands us." Also Bush is more comfortable with Jews and Israelis than Obama. Yes, Obama has his buddy Ram, but Bibi makes him nervous.

Obama is a slick anti-Semite like a lot of people who hide it with support of the "peace process."

Pro Palestinian=anti-Israel=anti-Semitism in my book.

I agree. Eli Weisel is more intelligent and insightful. Not to mention honset. I read the most recent version of Night. The includes a speech he makes after receiving it. I'll find my copy of the book and post the speech on my blog.

Wow. Just found the book! Here is a excerpt from his speech regarding Israel and the "peace process" and violence.

"This must stop, and all attempts to stop it must be encouraged. Israel will cooperate. I trust Israel because I have faith in the Jewish people. Let Israel be given a chance, let hatred and danger be removed from their horizons, and their will be peace in an around the Holy Land."

I know that's OT but the entire speech is brilliant.

The facts remain facts but the book is translated from the original French and the translator was Marion Wisel who translated is words more accurately. Sadly, some idiots took this new translation that his original versions were not truthful:(

And apparently the Yiddish version more on the death of his father, which thought was too personal, too private, to include in the first versions.

Especially the death of his father.

In the Yiddish version he felt he could be more honest. Brutally honest about the truth. He still has trouble writing about the death of his father.

In any event, he is a brilliant writer--and the introduction and Nobel Prize speech should be read.
