Website Corrects Record on Obama Positions
Resettling Hamas members in U.S.? Meshugge!
J-Street and the Jewish Alliance for Change have teamed up to assist the apparently beleaguered President Obama in refuting gossip, myths, and falsehoods about his attitude toward Israel, in the form of a new website called ObamaSmearBusters.com. Sort of a Media Matters for the liberal Diaspora, the site carries right-wing accusations about the president (usually in the form of a question) and answers with some variation of “No.” One delightful example—paricularly delightful because who knew it even was a charge against Obama?—is: “Obama is resettling Hamas members in America?” The answer: “That’s crazy.” Well, yes. No doubt it’ll be followed by: “Obama prefers packaged corned beef to deli? You should die of cancer if you believe that.”
