Obama also stressed he probably knows about Judaism more than any other president, because he read about it – and wondered how come no one asks Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner or Senate minority leader Mitch McConnel about their support to Israel.
The folks over at HotAir.com had an opinion:
The most revealing bit here is his reflexive need to inflate his own reputation at the expense of other presidents’. He could have said that he’s read widely about Jewish history and culture and left it at that, but this is a guy who’s into measuring himself against his predecessors when he isn’t busy exploiting their glory to tout his own “achievements.” Why he thinks he’s read more on this subject than any president, including/especially the last two Democrats who preceded him in office, I have no idea.
This coming in the same week that Obama gets the holocaust wrong! Obama was a student in Indonesia as a child. Being a Muslim country, we cannot testify to the accuracy of what he knows, how knowledgeable he is, nor whether he is biased or not.
