Since Obama has gotten into the office he wanted there have been several turn arounds to things he said before he "won" the office. With so much going on at one time each day there are things that do not get attention. Now the white house has a group whose job it is to run attacks on private citizens to draw attention away for what is going on.
This may be a little thing to many people, but things such as this will come back to bite us in the a** as a country.
White House mum on Jerusalem attack
Departs from practice of immediately condemning terrorism against Israelis

Bulldozer in terror attack in Jerusalem yesterday (Image from Israel's Channel 2) JERUSALEM – Officials in Jerusalem are quietly scratching their heads in wonderment as to why the White House did not release an official statement condemning yesterday's bulldozer terrorist rampage here, the third attack of its kind in recent months.
Two police officers were lightly wounded in Jerusalem when an Arab bulldozer driver overturned their police car and drove it into a bus before being shot by police and an armed taxi driver. The terrorist later died of his wounds in an Israeli hospital.
The attack with a bulldozer came less than 18 hours after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton strongly protested as "unhelpful" the planned bulldozing of more than 80 Jerusalem Arab homes built illegally upon Jewish land in Jerusalem.
Usually, following any terrorist attack in Israel, the White House like clockwork immediately releases an official statement condemning the attack. But this time, no statement was forthcoming from either the White House or Clinton's State Department.
Speaking to WND, a White House spokesman would only confirm he was not aware of any statement regarding the attack, but he would not speculate as to why the terrorism wasn't condemned.
A bulldozer rampage occurred while President Obama visited Israel as a presidential candidate in July. At that time, he slammed the attack, which killed three and wounded dozens more.
"I strongly condemn this attack and will always support Israel in confronting terrorism and pursuing lasting peace and security," Obama told a news conference.
