The champion of the non sequitor

And an arrogant ignoramus as well. You tell me how what Obama said is in any way related to what Netanyahu said:

In an interview with veteran American journalist Jeffrey Goldberg for The Atlantic, Obama described one particularly charged meeting in which Netanyahu “launched into something of a lecture about the dangers of the brutal region in which he lives,” i.e. the Middle East.

Obama said he felt Netanyahu was being condescending towards him, and responded: “Bibi, you have to understand something. I’m the African American son of a single mother, and I live here, in this house. I live in the White House. I managed to get elected president of the United States. You think I don’t understand what you’re talking about, but I do.”

Seriously, what is the relationship between what Netanyahu said and what Obama replied? Indeed, what evidence is there that Obama understands anything of importance about the Middle East, or about anything else for that matter? Read the whole article. What comes across is how out of depth he is about some of the most difficult issues any president must deal with. Even more what comes across is how little he cares whether he causes harm to Israel. Seven years down and one to go, but it will still be a close-run thing.
