Remember during the 2012 election how Republicans tried to paint Obama as soft on Israel, if not downright hostile to Israel? Here’s Israel’s take:
“Barack Obama is a true friend of the State of Israel, and has been since the beginning of his public life,” Peres and the award committee said in explaining their decision. “As president of the United States of America, he has stood with Israel in times of crisis. During his time as president he has made a unique contribution to the security of the State of Israel, both through further strengthening the strategic cooperation between the countries and through the joint development of technology to defend against rockets and terrorism.”
Consequently, Obama will be awarded a Presidential Medal by President Shimon Peres.
This is shining example of how Republicans will shamelessly lie about fucking anything and everything.
Republicans, as a corporate entity, can only be described as deeply sociopathic. Some individual Republicans may not be sociopaths, but they must lack an ethics enzyme or something. I mean, how else can a person willfully belong to an entity that has no higher principles and simply seeks power through habitual lies?
