Looks like the president decided he wanted to score some serious points:
White House aides told Jewish leaders on a conference call today that the United States will boycott the United Nations’ World Conference on Racism over hostility to Israel in draft documents prepared for the April conference.
The aides, including an adviser to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, Jennifer Simon, and longtime Obama advisor Samantha Power, said the administration will not participate in further negotiations on the current text or participate in a conference based on the text, sources on the call said.
Hotair is impressed:
Well, well, well. I’m not sure whether I’m more surprised to see Obama change his mind or Samantha Power take the side of Israel. Okay, I know I’m more surprised about Power going quietly from Durban II.
Yourish had this to say:
Well, there goes my subject for next week’s SNN. Now I need to find a new one.
Hey I guess Martin Perez a bone sometime.
I can’t help but think of Ken Burns telling us that Nathan Bedford Forest quit the KKK when it became too violent even for him in the last episode of the Civil War Series. I guess the conference is too anti-semitic even for the Obama administration.
We’ll be generous, we will not only give him an Arthur point but we will remove this Carter point for not objecting to a draft as well!
Carter 10 Arthur 5
Now lets see if he acts on the Zombie Unemployment issue!
UPDATE: Accidentally put this under the Amazon reviews catagory instead of Arthur/carter
