Obama gained the support of Congress (which pays his bills) to return to the Anti-Israel UN Human Rights Commission with a promise that he was doing so "to reform it". If he does the opposite, failing to dump the bigoted report, he will find an enraged Congress awaiting him with articles of impeachment. No president in US history has, less than a year into the job, attracted fury and distrust of the American people like Obama has. His popularity is crumpling. He's already feeling massive heat from Congress over his idiotic "freeze" demand in territory everybody knows will stay with Israel. And he remains under a '94 Congressional directive to accept united Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Any attempt by Obama to blackmail Israel by failing to veto the UNHRC plans in the Security Council will doom his Presidency to one skirmish after another with a hostile Congress. No accomplishments with the economy = no re-election. Battling Israel AND the Taliban? Who would his allies be?
