Israel is NOT Giving Obama an Award-Shimon Peres is Honoring Obama

THE LID

Jeff how can they?

The Emails and twitters came fast and furious once it was announced that Barack Obama was to receive Israel’s Presidential Medal of Distinction.

In fact, Obama will be the first sitting American president to receive Israel’s Presidential Medal of Distinction.

“It will be the first time in history that a serving president of the United States of America will receive an award of this kind from the president of the State of Israel,” the office said in a statement, according to the Israeli publication The Times of Israel.

How could Israel give its most prestigious civilian award to the most anti-Israel US President in the Jewish State’s almost 65-year history? The answer is simple…Israel isn’t awarding Obama anything; Israeli President Shimon Peres is presenting the award.

The role of President in Israel is supposed to be a non-political figurehead job–welcome guests dedicate new buildings, and going to funerals. The job is something akin to the role of VP when Hubert Humphrey held the position. Humphrey was asked if his family thought he was missing during his VP tenure, he said, “No, I was VP, similar but not quite the same”

President was supposed to be a great role for Peres, welcoming new immigrants off the plane, going to state funerals, cutting the ribbon for building dedication. NO POWER—-NO CHANCE for Power. And the term of office is for SEVEN YEARS. When his term is over he will be well over 170 years old (or it will seem like it).

    First couple of reports I read had me rolling my eyes that the Obeezlebub administration finally blackmailed Dear Israel, then Shimon was named as the perp and it made sense.

    Maybe Jimmy Carter could whittle one up for him while they’re at it.

    These socialist commie’s never stray far from ding-dong’s nutsack, do they?
    Sigh,
    4 more years of commie ass kissing to endure.

    The Mossad has probably already determined which trash can in the Oval office Obama will throw the medal into. The impact of the medal as it hits the trash can will trigger the release of nano-bugs which will attach themselves to the trash can.

    Too bad Barry spends all his WH time upstairs watching TV. They need to give a medal to ValJar if they want results.

    Another undeserved and meaningless award given to a man whose accomplishments are a mile wide and an inch deep.

    That the WH and the LSM would play this up as though it is an official State medal, with all its attendant Honors and Benefits reminds me of….of…

    “Counter signed, Pierre Andre! In INK! Honors and benefits already at the age of nine.”

    Why is everyone making fun of the U.S. preezy??!

    “Was there no end to the conspiracy of irrational prejudice against Red Ryder and his peacemaker?”

    You’ll shoot your eye out, Mr. President.

    So… Is the panting Peres going to follow Obama’s wagging tail into Palestinian ‘hoods to meet’n'greet the latter’s fan club?

    I hope there’s a cunning plan underneath this.

    @thirdtwin — I’d be happy with a medal they hang around Oscumbag’s neck that is made from pure Polonium.
