President Obama will address the nation's largest pro-Israel lobby today and try to ease tensions raised by his controversial Middle East speech earlier this week.He'll probably wind up receiving some polite applause, which the media will then tell us was a rousing standing ovation.
As a flash of violence erupted again along the Gaza Border, Obama will appear at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in Washington - and speak to thousands of activists who have been asked not to boo him.
Speaking to the gathering for the first time as President, Obama is expected to emphasize the United States' support for Israel and stress that the countries' shared interests far outweigh their differences.
The speech comes just days after Obama had a tense face-to-face meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the White House.
How pathetic is it we've got such a thin-skinned whiner White House that people have to be begged to not boo him? His swollen ego just couldn't handle it, I suppose.
