i follow the polls every day. the democrats will lose many seats come november. members of congress are waking up to the reality that they have tied their destiny to someone who was unvetted and who cannot be trusted. congress will start reasserting itself. once the new congress is seated, obama's powers will be reduced. nor should you underestimate the significance of the secret gates memo. it is unprecedented that a defence minister should be so critical of the government he is part of. one gets the impression that the army is not happy. obama is quite dictatorial in his approach but such approach will ultimately fail in a democracy. so this is not just about israel, or even substantially about israel. this is much more about the place of america in the world and whether it remains a superpower. obama has thus far grossly mishandled foreign policy. iran, syria, north korea, and others, are all spitting in his face. he will get very little from china and russia.
