Fred Thompson Says President Obama is ‘Hostile to the Jewish State,’ Urges Confrontation


Why couldn’t this guy have stuck to “Die Hard” movies?

Former Senator and GOP Presidential hopeful Fred Thompson sent a tweet this morning that would have looked more at home on HuffPo’s list of offensive Tea Party signs:

The urgency of confronting a President hostile to the Jewish state #tcot #ftrs

Leaving aside the fact that the President’s biggest crime seems to be saying that Israel’s government needs to “engage in serious self-reflection” (a cherry-picked quote from a report about the President’s meeting with American Jewish leaders), it is Thompson’s hyper-inflammatory language to which I object.

Exactly what does Thompson see as the objective of the President’s made-up “hostility?”  More importantly, what sort of urgent “confrontation” is he calling for?  I’ll let you know.
