it is infinitely more difficult to govern than to give speeches. obama's cairo speech and his speech in turkey have yielded absolutely no benefits. the muslim world is defying him, whether sunni or shia. iran is continuing with its nuclear and ballistic missile weapons program. saudi has refused all cooperation on the israel-palestinian issue. the same is true for even moderate sunni regimes. the demand of settlement freeze has backfired since it only froze diplomacy with abas. one cannot think of a single foreign policy accomplishment. obama's apology tour in europe has only embarrassed the u.s. the attack in fort hood are equally embarrassing. the attempts to humiliate israel and netanyahu are despicable. obama forgets that he is no longer a private person, but head of state. he cannot openly show his dislikes. however, it takes real leadership qualities to understand that.
