Obama: I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in the Oval Office



Ugh. Seriously?

WASHINGTON TIMES – President Obama once confided to a top adviser that he believes he is “the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office.”

In an interview with an Israeli TV station, former Obama adviser David Axelrod recalled the president venting in a moment of contemplation about criticisms that he doesn’t support Israel strongly enough.

“You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office,” the president told Mr. Axelrod. “For people to say that I am anti-Israel, or, even worse, anti-Semitic, it hurts.”

The TV report came out in advance of an exclusive interview that Mr. Obama conducted with Channel 2’s Ilana Dayan, which will be broadcast later Tuesday.

Would anyone believe the Ayatollahs if all of a sudden they expressed their love for the Jews? Yeah, Obama saying this is that absurd. What a pathetic joke he is.
