Two points: (1) We already had a timeline. Obama set a one year timeline exactly a year ago. Now he wants another year? (2) No proposal from the Quartet is serious if it backtracks on the previous Quartet position on Settlement construction and Obama's negotiation parameters.

Now I know why George Mitchell resigned. He discovered that President Obama was not serious, in spite of his promises.
