Obama hates missile defense, except when he’s trying to buy votes

Mitt Romney is on an overseas trip to Great Britain, Israel, and Poland. Worried about the Jewish vote at home because of his noted lack of support for Israel and wanting to steal a bit of the limelight from Romney, President Obama signed a bill giving Israel $70,000,000 for their (very promising) Iron Dome short-range missile defense system. What’s notable about that, you ask?

It’s all about the pandering, baby.

    Let’s see…

    The gay vote – “evolved” on his position of gay marriage
    The black vote – executive order creates the “African American Education Office”
    The hispanic vote – “Dream Act” executive order to stop deportations of illegals
    The jewish vote – suddenly has $70,000,000 love for Israel

    My guess is the next block of voters is college kids, ie. some variation of student loan forgiveness.

    How do you like that for “rocket science”? All it has to be able to do is fly through the electoral process.
