America has had plenty of presidents that were storng enough to stand up to Americas enemies. That goes with the job. The problem is that America has not had a single president that can stand up to Americas "friend" Israel when they are out of line. Both Bush and Obama criticized Israels settlement expansion, as have many other presidents. The problem comes when it is time to put words into action. American presidents have had an acute shortage of backbone in dealing with Israel. Here is hoping that the next American president is strong enough to pursue peace even if he has to get tough with his "friends".
