American jews are in the tank for obama. Why? its really hard to understand. I think he was seen as somehow a voice of reason, liberal values, quasi socialist values...long a bastion for jews...but the reality is turning out to be much different than even they thought..and many jews and non jew, are turning away from him. The truth is, hope and change to the arabs meant one thing, to the euros another, to the russians another and to the chinese still another...worst of all, most americans didnt expect this....his "even handedness" in the ME peace talks have been nothing short of a disaster and his handling of iran is to this point, a joke. They might have "new tough" sanctions in place, but they are doing diddly. Obama knows this...so does the EU. So? whatcha gonna do about it? Bush may have been inarticulate, BUT, he certainly cut to the point and didnt waste time with all of this nonsense only to arrive at the same place we are in now. I'm afraid george had it right all along. Its not just iraq, its iran, libya, yemen, pakistan, afghanistan, yatta yatta...take down iran, and you cut off hezbollah, syria, hamas, and you empower egypt, saudi, jordan, iraq. Iran is the key through which all roads run. There is no alternative and obama had better appreciate this. You want peace in the middle east? pals want a state? israel needs peace? Iran is the play. This american admin had it all backwards thinking if you had peace between the israelis and pals that iran would suddenly be a lovely friendly partner in peace. as Sherman Potter would have said: "HORSEHOCKEY"
