Obama Runs Out the Clock and Waffles [Literally] About Hamas

Barack can't even get a bite to eat nowadays without another Charlie-Gibson type annoying question----liberals hate it when their cloud cuckoo Pollyanna side is exposed, or in John Kerry's case, a less-than-splendid three-month stint in the Nam blindsided by 55 real true American heroes.

Barack has been very strong on talking to terrorist states like Iran & Syria without preconditions---let's just go in there and question why we just can't all get along! Hmm..., them 'splodin' dudes over at Hamas would seem to fit into the same mold as their terrorist godfathers, as the simpleton supporting Obama, a clown named Jimmy, would appear to be acting out as he parades his PR skills to the terrorists---oops, the Israelis & the US aren't biting....can't make the sale, but Jimmy never could make the sale. Especially with the American people in 1980. But is Barack going to fit into just another elitist Dem who pretends the world is a wonderful place that the US has done its best to drag into conflict?
Chomping down on sausage and waffles at Glider's Diner today with Sen. Bob Casey at his side, Barack Obama declined, in a sense, to comment on Jimmy Carter's meeting with Hamas.
Asked if he had heard that Carter reported a positive outcome from the meeting, Obama looked at the reporter who questioned him and said, "Why can't I just eat my waffle?"
Asked again by the reporter, Obama bit. Not at the question but into a butter-covered bite of Glider's specialty over-size Belgian waffles. With a wink this time he said, "Just let me eat my waffle."

Yes, those charming winks will go far with the 'splodin' dudes like Hamas & Hezbollah, who actually have agreed to verbiage not to drive Israel into the sea if a few preconditions are met---like ceding Jerusalem & a lot of defensive emplacements & suburbs the size of Levittown. James Taranto has more on food, along with a riff on Pink Floyd:
Obama, who has the support of Hamas honcho Ahmed Yousef, henceforth will be known as the waffle man, joining other food-associated politicians such as Ronald Reagan (jellybeans), George H.W. Bush (pork rinds), Michael Dukakis (endive), Dan Quayle (potatoes) and Bill Clinton (McDonald's french fries). [no GWB? my observation]

The Chicago Tribune's "Swamp" blog adds this detail:
On the other side of the diner, two high school seniors had skipped school to meet Obama and got him to sign passes saying "Excuse Colin!" and "Excuse Joey!"

New Obama slogan: "We don't need no education!"

It looks like Obama has been badly burned by the forthright candor of Charlie Gibson & George Stephanopoulos, so North Carolina won't have a debate. Obama will stall like the old NC Tarheels coach whose running out the clock instigated the 24 second rule.

Obama may have some game left, but he sure ain't no MJ.
