RUSH: What the hell, give me sound bite 23. I just told him to forget it. I want to play sound bite 23. From the Oval Orifice today, a White House meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and President Obama, who says in this bite — and this is a 180 for Obama — that our bond with Israel is unbreakable.
OBAMA: I just completed, uh, an excellent one-on-one discussion, uh, with Prime Minister Netanyahu, and I want to welcome him back to the White House. The bond between the United States and Israel is unbreakable. Uhhh, It — it encompasses our national security interests, our strategic interests, uh, but most importantly, uh, the bond of two democracies who share a common set of values.
RUSH: I couldn’t believe this when I heard this. This is not what Obama believes. If he means it now, if he means that our bond with Israel is unbreakable, it means because he’s learned it’s unbreakable because he tried to break it this past spring. You remember that. Netanyahu and his contingent were at the White House and Bite Me had just been in Israel, and the Israelis announced the continuation of the building of apartments, and Bite Me and Obama consider this a personal insult and affront, sent Netanyahu in the Oval Office. Obama gives him a list of demands to make and says, ‘I’m leaving. I’m going to have dinner with my family. When I get back here you better have made these changes.’
So Netanyahu and his gang go into some room in the White House, they don’t even use the phones cause they think Obama might be bugging them, and they leave. And then the flotilla thing happens and we find out that the Iranians are behind that. We find out that Code Pink and a bunch of American leftist operations are behind this flotilla business. We got Turkey out there demanding that Israel apologize for defending itself, and all of a sudden here’s Obama saying we have an unbreakable bond with Israel, a special bond here that’s national security interests, and strategic interests.
The bond of two democracies who share a common set of values. That’s new! Folks, I’m going to tell you that Rashid Kahlili, who’s responsible for Obama’s anti-Israeli views, is probably going, ‘What the hell happened here? My God, we had this guy right where we wanted him, was ready to sell Israel down the river, and all of a sudden he’s in bed with them?’ What has happened here is a political calculation. Obama tried to break the bond with Israel, it didn’t work. The American people don’t want the bond with Israel broken. So now it’s time to make nice with Netanyahu. The question is: How much of this is genuine versus how much of it was just for the cameras and the microphones?
RUSH: Now, this next sound bite, ladies and gentlemen, is a series of uhs in one answer to a question asked of President Obama sitting with president Benjamin Netanyahu. Obama took two questions. The answer to the first question was two minutes and 30 seconds. Thirty-six seconds of the answer was this. None of these are repeated.
OBAMA: Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh.
RUSH: I was asked if the teleprompter was stuck. There wasn’t a teleprompter, which is one of the problems. But it doesn’t matter what the question was. That’s 36 seconds of uhs, unrepeated in an answer to two questions. The answer was two minutes and 30 seconds.
