Obama's Christianity on display - not that it will quiet the rumor mongers

Over at the Spiritual Politics blog, Mark Silk, who heads the Leonard Greenberg Center for the Study of Religion in Public Life, has an interesting and provocative analysis of President Obama's appearance at yesterday's White House Easter prayer breakfast.

Tel Aviv — As Israel’s election campaign heads into its final weeks, Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will take off his gloves to protect his lead, said a campaign consultant.

Does vocal support for Israel give public figures a pass on just about anything else they say?

Obama’s Lost G’s & Southern Fried Hillary

Friday, October 10th, 2008 Sarah Palin’s cringe-inducing interview with Katie Couric, and her sometimes (oft-times?) clumsy phrasing has subjected her to considerable mockery. But some of the greatest political orators have had clunkers all their own.   Ted Kennedy, to name one.   In 1979, when he let it be known that he intended to challenge Pres. Jimmy Carter for the Democratic nomination, Kennedy was interviewed by Roger Mudd on CBS. What transpired was hardly inspiring.

Carter And Cocoa For Hamas

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008 I think Jimmy Carter is every bit the anti-Zionist, perhaps even the anti-Semite, that many Jews think he is. And yet, as a father, I liked the idea of Carter talking to Hamas.

Jimmy Carter To Jews: ‘Al Het’

Former president insists his grandson’s campaign is not his only reason for apologizing for ‘Apartheid’ book.

Washington — Jimmy Carter is asking the Jewish community for forgiveness — and insists it’s not simply because his grandson has decided to launch a political career with a run for the Georgia state Senate.

Jason Carter, 34, an Atlanta-area lawyer, is considering a run to fill a seat covering suburban DeKalb County should the incumbent, David Adelman, win confirmation as President Barack Obama’s designated ambassador to Singapore.
The seat has a substantial Jewish community.

Carter’s Apology Isn’t Peanuts

Thursday, December 24th, 2009

It’s bad form to take an apology and look for ulterior motives.

 

Even if it’s clear that Jimmy Carter smeared Israel by invoking apartheid in his book title just to sell more copies — he acknowledged in interviews that it’s a shoddy analogy — no one forced him to apologize. There are plenty of people, probably more than there are Israel supporters, who will hail him as a hero for trashing Israel. So he’s not looking for love.

 

Jimmy Carter’s message to the Jewish community: lions, lambs and why he still doesn’t get it

I was intrigued by Jimmy Carter's Chanukah message to the Jewish community, delivered via JTA, which provided a real insight into what makes him a decent human being – and made him a wretched failure as a president and Middle East policy analyst, which he fancies himself to be.
