"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Obama: his remarks last week that Israel-Palestinian negotiations should start from pre-1967 borders was "not based in substance."

Has Bill Clinton the 2nd taken over as this is a reminder of what the word 'is' is.  Obama lied in his speech to AIRPAC where attendees were instructed not to boo the President.  His lie continues about longstanding US policy when it is only Obama policy:
Obama also told the AIPAC meeting that his speech Thursday made clear a long accepted outline for the negotiations.

"There was nothing particularly original in my proposal; this basic framework for negotiations has long been the basis for discussions among the parties, including previous U.S. administrations," Obama said.
It was widely reported following the Obama speech on Thursday that President Bush sent a letter in 2004 to Ariel Sharon discussing that it would be impossible to go back to the pre-1967 borders because it would create a lack of security of Israel.   Now Obama gives a speech a few days later and once again repeats the lie it has been long standing US policy to go back to the pre-1967 borders.  On top of that lie he  he tells AIPAC that his comments on the pre-1967 borders was "not based in substance" which is nothing short of astounding.  Who writes Obama speeches or does he go off on his own because saying a part of his Thursday speech was "not based in substance" makes you wonder what is going on.

Obama rejects controversy over his stance on Middle East peace talks

Obama rejects controversy over his stance on Middle East peace talks
(CNN) - President Barack Obama said Sunday that any controversy over his remarks last week that Israel-Palestinian negotiations should start from pre-1967 borders and include land swaps was "not based in substance." 
In his first speech as president to the main American-Israeli lobby group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Obama said his reference to the border issue in a major policy speech on the Middle East "means that the parties themselves - Israelis and Palestinians - will negotiate a border that is different than the one that existed on June 4, 1967," the eve of the six-day war in which Israel seized the West Bank, Gaza Strip and other territory.

Not often you will find me speechless but this Obama speech is one of those moments. You are left with did he mean what he said, did some speechwriter put in "not based in substance" or did he go off from reading the teleprompter and add it himself? Whatever the reason, this President needs a break from making speeches before he gets this Country in more trouble. His obvious lack of reality is catching up.
Cannot believe he is running again for President based on his performance that has people from across all the political spectrum scratching their heads at what they have been witnessing. He seems totally over his head with a bad temper on top of that. To tell people in an audience not to boo the President is unheard of especially being said on behalf of the former community organizer whose experience was to get people to agitate and go after speakers. But when it comes to Obama, you are to applaud politely and tell him what a great job he is doing seems to be the mantra.   Does he have such a thin-skin that he cannot take criticism?  Maybe he truly does believe he can walk on water the way he acts.  Obama would never have lasted with the hatred aimed at President Bush including the leftist setting up camp to protest when he came to Crawford, TX.
