This is how it works in politics. Obama is entering election season he needs the votes of the jews and the pro Israel swing voters. He has made a name for himself over the past two and half years as being an enemy of Israel who gives unconditional support to muslims. If he wants to get those swing votes he needs an image makeover and that means showing Israel more support especially in the UN. Pro Israel voters don't like to see the president drop Israel in it when its the UN who most of them think is a waste of money anyway so this is a vote winner. Except for extremists like ultra far left or ultra far right name me a politician anywhere in the world that puts an ideology ahead of their own career. From now on Obama's policy will be what he thinks can earn him most voters in November 2012. Nobody ever said politics was for idealists.
