VIDEO: President Obama call the Bibisitter

Our colleagues at Gates of Vienna with the aid of the talented Vlad Tepes had this cute Likud Campaign commercial, Bibisitter, translatted and subtitled.

So, President Obama, next time you and Michelle are out of town on official or fund raising trips you might call the Bibisitter to look after your daughters. He appears more able to look after things in Israel than those others you seem to be supporting in next month’s Knesset election, Tzipi and Buji.
