Of all the animals to compare Obama’s strength to a lion would be near the bottom, a guppy would be more appropriate.

President Barack Obama will “stand strong as a lion” for Israel’s security, said Israeli President Shimon Peres, at a Tuesday celebration in Israel honoring the United States’ July 4th holiday.
Peres said he was certain that “the U.S. will stand against any hint of threat and danger,” in reference to recent threats made against his nation by Iranian officials.
“Obama will stand strong as a lion in order to ensure his country’s security and Israel’s well-being,” he added.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is known to have a strained relationship with Obama, did not attend the event.
