ברוך אובמה

And for G-ds sake people!- Obama isn't Hitler, ok?! Nothing much can really be changed from the White House in the American system anyway. ...the Jews are still just wary from the Holocaust I guess..
I mean look, now he took Rahm Emanuel to be his Chief of Staff (Jewish lobbying is back baby! Yes ladies and gentlemen; four more years of killing and plundering innocent Palestinian men, women and children, while deying the humanitarian right for a Palestinian state!).
I wanted to mention that his speeches, especially his 'yes we can' ones (the victory speech for example) are of the same refrain as some of our ancient prayers, such as "הודו לה כי טוב- כי לעולם חסדו".
And one other thing! One reason I'm happy Obama won is because he's a tall thin guy, who's not black, and not white. Which makes people like me (tall thinguys who aren' black or what) more acceptable in the eyes of the American public!

he once mentioned to a Jewish questioner who commented on his name in Boca Raton that 'Barack' is basically Arabic for 'Barukh' (which is true). He also mentioned that the name shouldn't seem awkard to Jews being that the prime minister was named 'Barack' (he did mention that in that sense it did mean 'lighning').

On the Hebrew buttons it's written with a 'kuf'..which makes it, again, similar to 'Ehud'..

"up your sleeve, don't you?"- The only thing 'up my sleeve' madam is skrawny, overly-frail arms..

Shlomo: I agree with Mishmum, you do seem to have "a lot of info up your sleeve"

But I agree with you, I believe he's not so bad. But then again I don't think I view anyone as bad or a threat.

Interesting comparison to hodu.
His victory speech did seem to be very long.
