It is almost "a given" that Obama will stick to the script being written for him by right-wing Jewish organisations. He and Netanyahu have much in common. Both seek to maintain the status quo, it is only their reasons for doing so that differ. Bibi is intent on grabbing much of the West Bank for Israel, thus he does not need to change course. For Obama it is a lack of personal courage that prevents him from doing so. When he made his maiden foreign policy speech in Cairo he said that bringing about a resolution to the conflict would be one of his priorities. He promised so much and has delivered so little. Former Secretary-of-State, Clinton, would periodically describe as "unhelpful" new announcements by Bibi to extend the settlements. It was the best present he could be given!
