Obama: I am the Closest Thing to a Jew That Has Ever Sat in This Office
EDITOR’S NOTE: Well, considering that Fetchit is a nominal Christian (a religion with Jewish roots), with Muslim heritage (another religion with Jewish roots), who wears a yarmulke and declares his eternal loyalty to the Jewish state, and who is guided and controlled by Jewish handlers, perhaps it really is fair for him to claim “closeness” to Jews.
As Jeffrey Goldberg stated in Foreign Policy magazine two weeks ago:
“I’ve argued that Obama is in many ways the most Jewish president we’ve ever had. I don’t want to rehearse all of my proofs right now, but in essence, no president has been shaped to the degree that Obama has been shaped by exposure to Jewish mentors, Jewish teachers, Jewish fellow community-organizers, Jewish advisers, Jewish political supporters, Jewish writers, and Jewish thought. On the Jewish right, of course, Obama is thought of as something approaching an anti-Semite. He’s not, of course. What he is, is a philo-Semite. And this comes with its own set of problems and challenges. …As a person who so closely identifies with this Jewish archetype, Obama sometimes forgets that he is not, in fact, Jewish.”
PRESIDENT Barack Obama apparently thinks he’s the closest thing to a Jewish president America has ever had.

Speaking to JPUpdates.com, top Obama confidant David Axelrod described a moment where the president expressed exasperation to him over being derided as anti-Israel by some.
“You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office,” the president claimed, according to Axelrod. “For people to say that I am anti-Israel, or, even worse, anti-Semitic, it hurts.”
During Obama’s tenure, U.S.-Israel relations have fallen to their lowest point in decades.
In the interview, Axelrod attempted to blame the current impasse between America and Israel as the fault of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Axelrod slammed Netanyahu for only being in politics because he wants “to be somebody,” in contrast to Obama and more “respectable” politicians who Axelrod claims entered elective politics to do “something positive.”
