Obama Featured In Pro-Palestinian State Ad


Kinda funny when those “blue meat” speeches come back and bite you on the posterior, eh, Mr. Obama?

President Barack Obama is the unlikely star of a new Palestinian media campaign.

Part of a speech Obama gave in 2010 to the United Nations General Assembly is featured in an ad aimed to rally support for the Palestinians upcoming bid for statehood at the United Nations on Sept. 20, Reuters reported on Wednesday.

“When we come back here next year, we can have an agreement that can lead to a new member of the United Nations, an independent, sovereign state of Palestine living in peace with Israel,” Obama said in the 2010 speech in the clip that is played in the radio ad.

The Palestinians use of the remarks is at odds with the Obama administration’s current all-out push to stop the Palestinians from pursuing their statehood bid. U.S. Special Envoy to the Middle East David Hale is set to hold talks Wednesday with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to urge him to reconsider the statehood effort and instead return to direct negotiations with Israel.

During the 36-second radio spot starring Obama, Abbas tells listeners “If he said it, he must have meant it.”

Obama’s leftist base is rabidly anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian, as are many at the United Nations and around the world, so Obama’s little UN speech was designed to elicit accolades from those people, yet, once again, Obama forgot that he was no longer candidate Obama, but President of the United States of America Obama, and his words have actual meaning. Then, when the Palestinians actually pushed for their own state as part of the UN, some advisers surely came to the White House and said “this is a really bad idea“, and the reality of being POTUS reached up and smacked the campaign speech out of him.
