Obama on Jerusalem

Good grief- Obama doesn't know that saying Jerusalem should be "undivided" is a controversial topic?

Daniel Kurtzer, who advises Obama on the Middle East, said Tuesday at the Israel Policy Forum that Obama's comment stemmed from "a picture in his mind of Jerusalem before 1967 with barbed wires and minefields and demilitarized zones."

"So he used a word to represent what he did not want to see again, and then realized afterwards that that word is a code word in the Middle East," Kurtzer said.

So, let me recap- Obama's ignorant of one of the major bones of contention in the Middle East and he's unable to express himself accurately.

Hope! Change! I guess that means Obama hopes that people change the subject quickly from this distraction about the Jerusalem he didn't know and which certainly isn't helping his children.

That seems to sum up a remarkable amount of his current campaign, doesn't it? Saying one thing, changing his mind a day or so later and then creating a lot of excuses for why he said what he did in the first place.
