Obama is trying to gain few votes from the Jewish lobby by telling them that he has done his duty towards Israel,by admitting that he was involved in the mess created in Syria.
he is showing them his cards now and trying hard to assure them that he is their best friends,while Romney was bolder and more desperate to assure them that he is going to get Iran.

It has never been a secret, anyone that can read would have read that he has pledged millions in humanitarian aid to civilians and to non-military aid to rebels such as phone links etc. Only the writer of this article did not get the memo.

Comrades
I beg to draw your intellectual attention to my views.
Obama's mistake is not due to his roll as a person who dwells in White house with the tacid support of the innocent voters.
Obama's greatest sin/mistake is this.
He had failed to make the dreams of Americans.
System is rotten to the core

Comrade
If USA is a country like iran; India or xyz normal one, i would leave the politics to decide the local wage slaves.
But USA is the one and only country which shows duty; decency, decipline and democracy .
Tell me one country which can surpass the intellectual faculties ?

If Obama had Killed 20,000 of his own people like your hero Assad, do you really think he would get away with it?? Get real and get a clue!! 20,000 plus of his own people murdered at the hands of assad! Do you see very many Syrians from Syria Posting?? That's because Assad has a short leash on everyone!! Funny how you clowns live in a country that grants you all the freedom in the world to write your nonsense. The Syrian people have no freedom so what do you clowns do? You stand up for a ruthless Assad Dictator!! And to top it off, somehow Israel and West are involved. The U.S., amazingly U.N., NATO, The Arab League and the list goes on and on have condemned ASSAD. Most civilized countries have elections so when you have brutal Dictators like China, Syria, and Iran there is no way to get rid of the tyrants other than by force!! The people are stuck with their ruthless Dictators their whole lives and then when that clown passes, daddy appoints another ruthless Dictator and this is an endless cycle! It's like a nightmare that will not go away!! I don't blame the people one bit!! Folks! Ask yourself why oczx and lap dog Rassmutten are not worried one iota!! They are Paid Assad Sock Puppet! Period!
China, Venezuela and Iran supports Syria and guess what? There is NO freedom in any of those countries either!

incompatense is all pervasive and corrupt system is not reserved in one country.
Why the hell the so called super power had only two to ruin that country.
Why not a system like in Germany or India where the ruining the dreams of tax payers is not that easy.

In my above statement i had not supported or opposed any of the two candidates to enjoy their blissful life in White house.
My critical observation is this.
In Germany they have proportional representation for all the contesting parties if they get more than 5 percent of votes.
In Australia where I had spent more than two years voting is compulsory.
In India the present government( though corrupt) is a coalition government.
In Uk they have the first cross the 50 percent of the votes polled get elected.
I had perused the history of USA thro' US sources.
There is hardly any chance to find a change.
The same old two sides of the same coin.
Why sir?

Of course Obama has to dance according to the tunes of corrupt corporate sponsors.
No doubt the whole globe had enough of the wholesale sole exporter of democracy.
Some two years back i had aired my views in this forum.
