Obama has created a perfect storm of losses for America's world status. He loses credibility by attacking his country's closest ally over construction permits, which makes the U.S. look pathetic. He loses more credibility by giving lip service against Iran, talk that the world can see is empty. If Obama thinks that kicking an ally and using extortion is making him appear strong, he's hallucinating. His govt. looks bad no matter what Israel does. Lose-lose for America.
