  1. Clearly Obama is out to get Netanyahu and Israel. Mitt must be more fit. Good. I’ll go fry my eggs now. Thanks.

  2. I think Obama is waiting to see what Sarkozy is going to do. Maybe they should go together to be Menachem Avel.

  3. Obama will send condolences! He’s just waiting for the media to sort of tell him he must do so! Alayne faarshtait er nisht!

  4. I didn’t think he would. He is a sonei yisroel and anything that he does is only to get your vote. Be smart, Yiddelach, and be careful.

  5. Jews wake up. There is a clear choice in the next elections between Romney a friend of Israel and a personal friend of Netanyahu.
    Or Obama not a friend of either.
    Vote for Israel. Vote for Romney.
