A president's policy on foreign affairs is NOT necessarily dependent on congressional support - and a change in congressional majority will therefore NOT necessarily have any affect on Obama's policy in the ME. In case you haven't noticed, his so-called "enablers" ALSO reside in AIPAC's hip pocket - just like their republican peers. Fact of the matter of the matter IS that the U.S. state department, and foreign policy, fall almost exclusively under the powers of the executive branch. So if he's gonna lose in 2012, and he KNOWS he's going to, better watch out - because AIPAC's political threat won't carry much weight at that point. If on the other hand he DOES win in 2012, then his second term is left wide open to him. "Realpolitik". LOL! Know what your talking about. Maybe while you're at it, you can look up the State Department assessment and views on the ME conflict in order to better understand the difference between congressional 'opinion' and official U.S. 'policy' regarding it. The difference is like night and day.
