    He has done nothing at all. He is a nice guy, all charisma and no substance. Like John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. He has accomplished nothing. Only a man willing to stand up to Netanyahu and squeeze his financial balls could have accomplished anything. Bibi Netanyahu is not a nice guy, he is a ruthless guy, and he crushed Obama at their first meeting. The situation is simple. Netanyahu need only wait out the next three years and he wins. And he wins when there is no Palestine, and no peace. Because Bibi has only one thing to sell. Fear. If Abbas was counting on Obama to save hope of peace - and he was not alone - he is the last to realize that there is no hope for peace.
