    That's how he got elected. And then? How effective have his policies of "engaging Syria and Iran" have been? How effective have his "toughest sanctions against Iran ever" been? How has his Cairo speech influenced the events of today's Egypt, where Islamism takes over by 70%? How do you evaluate his actions, attitudes, effectiveness in Iraq, Afghanistan, vis a vis Syria and Iran, Lebanon and Gaza? How do you evaluate his intervening in less than relevant Libya, and not intervening in highly relevant Syria? Obama is not an enemy of israel, but Obama is fantastiv homilectics and clueless Middle East policies. We all know sanctions against a fanatic, islamofascist regime won't work. As for Peres, barak, Ayalon and Netanyahu, the cut and paste clips only show they must talk well about their patron. He is a marvelous speaker. How do you rate him as president?
