The deeply knowledgable Obama has done nothing but reassure, with almost neurotic consistency, Israel about the unbreakable bond, indeed love affair, between the US and Israel. Netanyahu snubbed his modest proposal for a freeze on settlements, enlisted the US to try to ensure the Goldstone report didn't get to the Security Council. So, we have an ardent suitor, having his face rubbed in the muck, and 6-10% satisfaction by the Israeli public which dismisses this as just smooth talk. George Bush knew nothing about Israel, or the Middle East, waged two wars there, shut up about settlements, and earned huge respect in Israel.
