Israel First to Test Barack Obama on Hamas Conflict

Obama Defers to Bush, for Now, on Gaza Crisis - NYTimes.com

WASHINGTON — When President-elect Barack Obama went to Israel in July — to the very town, in fact, whose repeated shelling culminated in this weekend’s new fighting in Gaza — he all but endorsed the punishing Israeli attacks now unfolding.

“If somebody was sending rockets into my house, where my two daughters sleep at night, I’m going to do everything in my power to stop that,” he told reporters in Sderot, a small city on the edge of Gaza that has been hit repeatedly by rocket fire. “And I would expect Israelis to do the same thing.”


President elected Barack Obama.

Where is Barack Obama ? I know he is on vacation in Honolulu and trying to keep a low profile but he remains involved in transition plans and has received intelligence briefings. So Barack Obama knows what is going on and is watching for afar. In four days he has said nothing.

Now when I commented on this in a post, I got the liberal reply.

waggdogg,

Obama is not yet President -- George Bush is the current President It is not President elect Obama's time to make Presidential statements.Use your brain. BTW, George B. is on vacation as well, and not doing much else.

But Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama put out a statement condemning Russia for their escalation of the conflict with Georgia. And he was not even elected President yet.

Remember what Joe Biden said?

"It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like
they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a
brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of
America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember
anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis,
a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

Joe was right, it looks like Israel will be the first to test President-elect Barack Obama. Remember the world is looking and see a bare chested man walking from the gym.Celebrity website Celebuzz claimed Obama was "the hottest president ever" while the Sun said "His buff chest and toned tum belie his 47 years and show he's got more in common with George Clooney than George Bush."

Please Barack, you don't have to act like neither of the Georges but you must act. Americans and the World wants to know how you are going to handle this.
