    Aluf Benn, in his various articles, expresses a certain touchingly childish, almost quaint, belief in the supposed inherent goodness and correctness of the dreck uttered by Obama. Mr Benn seems naively unaware that, in the upcoming November, 2010 elections, the democrat party is expected to get resoundingly trounced, and thus lose its stranglehold over the US Congress, after which Obama's power will be significantly curtailed. Moreover, in the 2012 elections it appears likely - based on growing unhappiness with Obama amongst the US electorate, who realize that they have been fooled into voting for an incompetent, inexperienced, sophomoric socialist - that Obama's one term reign will end, and he will almost certainly be replaced by a conservative, adult President.

What it’s like for a survivor to stand trial against a Nazi
