In order to assist in some necessary cozying back up to liberal Jewish voters after his recent endorsement by Hamas, Jeffrey Goldberg did a softball interview with his Obamatude in the Atlantic.
Obama assures Goldberg that some of his best intellectual influences are Jewish and that he thinks Zionism is peachy keen, then he puts his foot in it.
JG: Do you think that Israel is a drag on Americaâ€™s reputation overseas?
BO: No, no, no. But what I think is that this constant wound, that this constant sore, does infect all of our foreign policy.
Referring to “infecting” is a nice touch, too.
Somehow I don’t think this interview is going to help him much in Palm Beach County.
