Obama back to normal

My old boss used to say that even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while.

As so it is with President Obama, with the recent slaying of Osama bin Laden. Kudos all around.

But today, he says that Israel must return to its 1967 borders, to return land it seized as a buffer after being attacked by Arab nations.

The man has had some issue with Israel since he's been on the national stage, but I don't understand why.

Maybe, with someone like the president, it's best to use what is sometimes called "tough love." Treat him (and the United Stares) badly, and he responds positively, or at least doesn't try to push you around, like he did today with Israel.

Shameful. Better to provide more foreign aid to autocracies. Go figure.
