    "He has not even used a sliver of the power of his office yet to even influence anything." The positions of the players and the setting which they are in are taking contour, the perceptions, hopes and fears of leaders involved are moving and shifting, the central issues for future battle are set on sharp, pressure is mounting. If US Congress acts often in wrong ways looking at Israeli instead of American interest first, Obama needs an Augustian trick to send them into the cold safely. What is more anti-American behaviour, unacceptable for American people then swallowing passively face-slapping and throwing of insults of ill-faited ungratefull greedy friends on benevolent gentleman-integrity Predident? Obama may want to wait for slamming homeruns till mainstream America starts looking hungry and beggingly at him for it to happen. Augustus did it with Roman Congress. Couldn't vote against him anymore without looking like traitors. Called him a softie first (sorry). See Ya.

    from the article: How will Netanyahu respond to Obama's ultimatum?
