Obama Rules

Mr. Kerry condemned the remarks but added that the issue was not “black and white” and pointed out that Egypt is strategically important to the U.S. and that Mr. Morsi has maintained Egypt’s treaty with Israel.

But can someone who spoke as Mr. Morsi did ever be trusted when it comes to Israel? And are Mr. Kerry and the president unaware that the Koran includes similar comments and worse?

To be sure, for most of his first term President Obama, contrary to the one-dimensional picture painted by some of his critics and despite a rocky personal relationship with Prime Minister Netanyahu, generally defended Israel at the UN and other venues, particularly at times when other countries were more than willing to sacrifice Israel’s interests on the altar of Palestinian nationalism. Whether he will continue on that course is far from certain. Given some of the administration’s new faces, there is real cause for concern.

  2. Charlie Hall says:

    "It will be recalled that he acted similarly with respect to federal immigration laws when he disagreed with provisions that called for certain illegal aliens to be deported. He simply ordered the Immigration and Nationalization Service not to enforce the law –despite the fact that Congress had repeatedly declined to amend the legislation to his liking."

    This is not correct. The people affected by this order are in fact eligible to be in the United States legally; he was just waiving the previous rule that required them to go through the hassle and expense of returning to their home countries. It is the kind of reduction in government regulation that conservatives used to support, until they realized that there was more mileage in bashing foreigners and bashing Obama.

  3. Charlie Hall says:

    "Yet at the very least it puts into sharp focus the important issue of our president’s way of dealing with rules that stymie his initiatives: he trashes them."

    The Republicans are every bit as much at fault here. Not liking that law that gives workers collective bargaining rights, they refuse to allow votes on the members of the Board that enforces those rights. Unable to get a majority in Congress to take away collective bargaining rights, they simply make it impossible to enforce the law.

    And the same thing is true for the other recess appointment, of the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Board. Believing that abusive financial institutions should be able to run roughshod over consumers, and objecting to the fact that the previous Congress had enacted some reforms that put some limits on those abuses, yet unable to repeal the law, they simply make it impossible to enforce the law by refusing to allow a vote on the head of the Board.

    This editorial criticized Obama for refusing to enforce laws he doesn't like. The editorial would be more effective had it also pointed out that Republicans actively prevent the enforcement of laws that THEY don't like.

  4. Sounds like the USA is totally fu—- up.by both parties!

  5. Maybe it was that Odumba's appointees to the Board were unacceptable is why they didn't vote to accept them.

    Blaming the Republicans for illegal actions of the President is kind of stupid

Somewhat surprisingly, the Vatican’s unwelcome gesture was diametrically at odds with what President Obama signaled in an interview with the news outlet Al Arabiya.

The recent solid victory of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party produced something very different.

“Let’s get something straight so we don’t kid each other…[the Iranians] already have paved a path to a bomb’s worth of material,” said Mr. Biden. “Iran could get there now if they walked away in two to three months without a deal.”

Beyond the particulars of this tragic death, however, we should all be concerned about the possibility that a criminal prosecution in a major American city is being driven by fear of mobs in the street.

The president is unwilling to cede any of what he considers his exclusive powers in the area of foreign policy and has struggled mightily to keep the Senate away from any role in the kind of deal to be negotiated.

A committed Religious Zionist, he was a sought-after adviser on Zionist affairs around the world.

More important, Mr. Obama is simply acceding to Iran’s position on the timing of the lifting of sanctions.

He went on to say that the United States would defend Israel if it were “attacked by any state.”
