A Dastardly Clinton Dirty Trick in Teaneck

This morning I had an Obama lawn sign on my front lawn in Teaneck.

This afternoon when I returned home, I had a Hillary lawn sign on my front lawn instead.

The Obama sign is gone.

Henry, if that is your Hillary sign, come by before Tuesday to get it back. It's out by my garbage.

And so the Clinton dirty tricks machine is working hard - even on holidays.

"And so the Clinton dirty tricks machine is working hard - even on holidays."

Is he part of the "machine", or is acting on his own, to goof on you.

Tzvee-
It is Saturday night and I am back from spending Purim in Lakewood. Thanks for the shalach manos. But where is my sign?

Dirty tricks???

I was informed late yesterday by my kids that you had stolen my sign and replaced it with an Obominable one.

Now I see that YOU accuse ME of Dirty Tricks!!!

Shame, shame!!!

Well Henry if somebody switched our signs and if it was a kid's prank, then I doubt I can accuse Hillary of bad behavior. If you have my Obama sign, then bring it back and get your Hillary sign.

And you are sure that you indeed were in Lakewood?

wasn't one of the cars missing over shabbos? No wonder you can't see the danger of the new Jimmy Carter.

"If you have my Obama sign, then bring it back and get your Hillary sign."

Or, I'll walk over and hand you your sign, and I'll ask for my own back.

note for next election: write your names in small print on the back of your signs.

I made the exchange. Your Sabeeliac sign is back at your garbage.

a microcosm of what hillary wants - to make the campaign distasteful and disrupt the idealism that fires up the obamans. sadly, it works.

thanks for returning the sign.

What idealism?
You worry about the Pope and ignore the Black Liberation theology that has numerous churches working actively to destroy the Jewish state.

Arab-American Activist Says Obama Hiding Anti-Israel Stance

by Gil Ronen


(IsraelNN.com) Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama is currently hiding his anti-Israel views in order to get elected, according to a well-known anti-Israel activist. The activist, Ali Abunimah, claimed to know Obama well and to have met him on numerous occasions at pro-Palestinian events in Chicago.

In an article he penned for the anti-Israeli website Electronic Intifada, Abunimah wrote:

"The last time I spoke to Obama was in the winter of 2004 at a gathering in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood. He was in the midst of a primary campaign to secure the Democratic nomination for the United States Senate seat he now occupies. But at that time polls showed him trailing.

"As he came in from the cold and took off his coat, I went up to greet him. He responded warmly, and volunteered, 'Hey, I’m sorry I haven’t said more about Palestine right now, but we are in a tough primary race.
'Hey, I’m sorry I haven’t said more about Palestine right now, but we are in a tough primary race.'
I’m hoping when things calm down I can be more up front.' He referred to my activism, including columns I was contributing to the The Chicago Tribune critical of Israeli and US policy [and said:] 'Keep up the good work!'"

Barack, Michelle, Edward and Mariam
Abunimah's report included a photo of Obama with his wife Michelle seated at a table with virulently anti-Israeli Professor Edward Said and his wife Mariam, in what Abunimah said was a May 1998 Arab community event in Chicago at which Said gave the keynote speech.

In an interview earlier this year for the leftist radio show "Democracy Now!," a daily TV and radio news program hosted by Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez, Abunimah said he knew Obama for many years as his state senator "when he used to attend events in the Palestinian community in Chicago all the time."

"I remember personally introducing him onstage in 1999, when we had a major community fundraiser for the community center in Deheisha refugee camp in the occupied West Bank," he recounted. "And that's just one example of how Barack Obama used to be very comfortable speaking up for and being associated with Palestinian rights and opposing the Israeli occupation."

About face 'to get elected'
Abunimah's report included a photo of Obama with his wife Michelle seated at a table with virulently anti-Israeli Professor Edward Said and his wife Mariam.

The Arab-American activist went on to say: "In 2000, when Obama unsuccessfully ran for Congress I heard him speak at a campaign fundraiser hosted by a University of Chicago professor. On that occasion and others Obama was forthright in his criticism of US policy and his call for an even-handed approach to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict."

"Obama's about-face is not surprising," Abunimah wrote. "He is merely doing what he thinks is necessary to get elected and he will continue doing it as long as it keeps him in power."

When Obama first ran for the Senate in 2004, the Chicago Jewish News interviewed him on his stance regarding Israel's security fence. He accused the Bush administration of neglecting the "Israeli-Palestinian" situation and criticized the security fence built by Israel to prevent terror attacks: "The creation of a wall dividing the two nations is yet another example of the neglect of this Administration in brokering peace," Obama was quoted as saying.

The anti-Obama echo chamber has issued another yodel.

I won't dare bring up the time that Hillary kissed Suha Arafat, after Suha's virulent anti-Israel speech in which she said that Israel was spreading cancer among the Palestinians.

The next Teflon president, Obama.

Arafat's speech was in untranslated Arabic.tzvee can't be expected to understand the difference, anymore than the difference between papist Christianity and sabeel Christianity.

Tzvee said...

Untranslated Arabic? Indeed it was translated on the spot and indeed Hillary did claim, "The English translation was difficult to follow."

Whoo Hoo. Keep yodeling in that Hillary echo chamber.

And what does Sabeel have to do with Obama? Nothing.
