Thank God that in this case, Obama is doing the right thing. We cannot afford yet another war in the Middle East against a country that is not now and never will be a threat to the US -- or Israel for that matter.

Thanks to Obama we can't even afford our own country anymore.

You're right about one thing - Obama is doing everything possible to make sure we can't afford it.

Who would have thought that God and Jerusalem would become controversial issues at this year's Democratic National Convention?

Previous Democratic Party platforms had mentioned God and referred to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. After both were initially missing from this year's platform, someone apparently realized that this was likely to raise questions about Democrats that they could ill afford to have raised in an election year.

So the convention faced a vote on whether to restore God and Jerusalem to their party's platform. Rather than risk a roll-call vote from the delegates, the chair called for a voice...
