Maybe the former mayor just wanted to flex his muscles a bit. Just weeks after Koch's very public anger that the president's Israel policy cost the Democratic Party a seat in Congress, he's decided it's maybe not such a big deal after all:
The President should be praised for intervening with the Egyptian army to save the Israeli diplomatic personnel from physical assault and providing the Israeli military with bunker buster bombs, advanced military technology and providing military intelligence cooperation far exceeding his predecessors. I’m now on board the Obama Reelection Express.
Quite the repentance. Guess Koch is getting an early jump on Yom Kippur.
