Even the image of Obama trying to illegally end run Congress on its promised ban of billions more to Abbas, during a US election year yet (!), would be guaranteed political suicide for Obama. This idiot's stubborn refusal to pull the US ambassador to Syria, after even the Saudis have cut relations over the continuing Assad bloodbath, is yet another nail in the coffin of his failed presidency - Obama's return of the US ambassador without demanding changes from Assad (arms smuggling, Hariri murder) is widely seen here as the green light for the current Assad genocide campaign. Obama doesn't like to admit and correct mistakes, as the current economic mess demonstrates (lest he be seen as "weak" - yet another dysfunctional cultural trait he brought to the White House from his native Indonesia).
