    I agree with the writer. It is as if you can take the Pesach song "Dayenu" ("it is enough") and put a "not" on it for all that Obama has done. Yes, the bar has been raised on Obama compared to past Presidents. It is "not enough" that he has sanctioned Iran, it is "not enough" that he increased defense cooperation, it is "not enough" that he tried to bring Bibi and Abbas to the table. The detractors will keep saying "not enough", yet sing the praises of a man who says that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is "unsolvable", thus relegating Israel to an endless conflict. (Rpmney cloaks his public speech with support of a 2-state solution, but in private said this was not possible.) I'd rather go with someone with a vision of Peace, and that is Obama.
