WHY DOIESN'T THE SMARTEST HUMAN EVER TO GIVE A SPEECH...:

Obama to AIPAC: Israelis, Palestinians should negotiate a new border (JTA, May 22, 2011)

“By definition, it means that the parties themselves – Israelis and Palestinians – will negotiate a border that is different than the one that existed on June 4, 1967,” Obama said on Sunday morning to the annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. “It is a well-known formula to all who have worked on this issue for a generation. It allows the parties themselves to account for the changes that have taken place over the last 44 years, including the new demographic realities on the ground and the needs of both sides.”

Last week, Obama said Israeli-Palestinian peace talks should be based on the pre-’67 lines, with mutually agreed swaps.


...always end up having to give a series of follow-ups apologizing for and explaining what he said in the first instance? Only a speaker as inept as the UR could reiterate the position of Reagan, W and Bibi and make it seem like we were selling out Israel.
