At least he’s being consistent. I’ll give him that.
Consistency is an important quality in a president. I certainly hope that the next President of the United States is also a consistent person.
But, consistently negative towards Israel?
Consistently attacking Israel?
Is THIS the kind of consistency that we want in the President of the United States?
I’m sorry, but the price of oil is up because the value of the dollar is DOWN. (And the fact that Libya was attacked and Iran is under embargo.) The price of oil has NOTHING to do with Israel and everything to do with Obama.
Of course, Barack is following the age old tradition of blaming their problems on the Jews.
I guess that also makes him both consistent AND traditional.
The Obama administration is blaming Israel for the recent rise in global crude oil prices, says its “posturing” on Iran brought the rise.

The Obama administration is blaming Israel for the recent rise in global crude oil prices, according to a Sunday report in The World Tribune. The rise in fuel prices is deemed as harming the U.S. economy and has also hurt Obama in the polls as he seeks re-election in November.
The report cited a leading U.S. analyst, Robert Satloff, who returned from talks with Israeli officials.
Satloff, executive director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said, according to The World Tribune, that the Israeli leadership saw Washington as attributing the higher gas prices to “Israel’s posturing” on Iran.
“They think the Iranians should be held responsible for the higher gasoline prices,” Satloff was quoted as having said.
He added that the officials told him the Obama administration was staging a campaign to undermine Israel.
