Call for a Live Debate: Barack Obama Versus John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt

Christopher Jon Bjerknes

Barack Obama is a polished speaker, but it is my belief that Obama's glitter is gold leaf laid over a mediocre mind, a mushy mind that has been molded by Zionist dies. Oabama's victory in the Illinois Senate race came after a prolonged series of scandals and shenanigans, and it is beyond strange that the Republican Party, given all the options in the world, opposed Obama with neo-Conservative and rabid Zionist William Kristol's old friend Alan Keyes, who dutifully made an ass of himself almost daily, thereby not only guaranteeing Obama victory, but making Obama appear to be a genius and a political marvel by comparison.

Since the Zionist owned media does not question politicians about their disloyalty to the United States and their Israel-first agenda, we should enter a new era where politicians not only debate one another, but where scholars openly debate politicians in an unencumbered confrontation. I should note that political "debates" among competing candidates have become more a platform for shallow pronouncements, than serious debate.

Let Barack Obama, who seeks to become the most powerful political leader in the world, and who has interjected himself into the discussion about Mearsheimer and Walt's book The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy, debate Mearsheimer and Walt in a public forum for all the world to see. I suspect that we will discover that Obama is not the person we want as president, and that his devotion to serving Israel's interests is not in the best interests of the United States of America. Perhaps we can even lead Obama to read the book which he presumes to criticize based upon the opinions of others.

There should be a very public debate about Mearsheimer and Walt's book, and politicians should participate in it. Of course, Obama would likely decline the invitation to debate, but by doing so, he would tacitly confess that his veneer is ever so thin and cracks to reveal a hollow core when he is confronted with a real challenge to his agenda, not a horse's rump like Alan Keyes.

In the News:

Obama defends pro-Israel policy as compatible with US interests

Obama on Walt-Mearsheimer: just wrong

Obama supports Israel. Period.

Obama: Walt-Mearsheimer 'dead wrong'
