More commentary on Obama and Israel

TOM COTTON ON OBAMA’S PARTING SHOT AT ISRAEL
"If the consequences include ending all financial assistance to the U.N., that would be a nice coda to the Obama presidency."

Report: Obama To Have Kerry Lay Out Plan For ‘Peace’, Get UN Approval To Impose On Israel…
Report: Obama to have Kerry lay out parameters for permanent peace, then seek Security Council approval for his plan

Basically, after dousing the region in gasoline for 8 years, Obama is about to light a match & flick it over his shoulder as he walks away.

"On "Your World" today, Karl Rove ripped President Obama for his claim that Fox News and Rush Limbaugh created a "fictional" portrayal of him.
" 'You understand that if people are angry that somehow the government is failing, then they are going to look to the guy who represents government," Obama told The Atlantic. "And that applies, by the way, even to some of the folks who are now Trump supporters. They're responding to a fictional character named Barack Obama who they see on Fox News or who they hear about through Rush Limbaugh."
"Rove said that Obama's comments are revealing, not about Fox News or Limbaugh, but about the president's "jaw-droppingly condescending and arrogant" attitude toward the American people.
"Rove explained that Obama is essentially saying that supporters of President-elect Donald Trump weren't influenced by facts, but by their own racism and bigotry.
" 'At the heart of it is an assault, a condescending and arrogant assault upon the good sense of the American people," Rove said.
"He said this attitude has permeated the entire Democratic Party, which still refuses to acknowledge that they lost the election because they had a "lousy message" and a "lousy candidate.' "

IT’S OFFICIAL: OBAMA IS WAY WORSE THAN JIMMY CARTER  "I dimly recalled that Carter made a similar move in his last year in office, voting to abstain on a UN resolution that sounds identical to the one passed yesterday. Only that time Carter reversed course—sort of. To refresh your memory, here’s my account of it from volume 1 of The Age of Reagan:"
This time Vance persuaded Carter that the time had come for the U.S. to signal its displeasure with Israel by voting in favor of the resolution.  The resolution passed unanimously, and all hell broke loose.  An angry Robert Strauss, Carter’s campaign chairman, told Carter, “Either this vote is reversed or you can kiss New York goodbye.” Invoking a parliamentary technicality, the U.S. managed to get a revote on the resolution the next day, and changed its vote from “yes” to “abstain.”
