Obama never stood a chance with Israel's analysts
Obama barely finished his speech before it was engulfed in waves of sour, skeptical, judgmental negativity from our studio analysts. If anyone tries to talk about hope, peace and justice, they’ll tell you how 'naive’ and 'childish’ it is.
U.S. President Barack Obama never stood a chance. It was not Israeli public opinion he had to conquer, not Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to persuade. His assignment was to break down the iron wall of Israeli political commentators, and that is a mission impossible even for a statesman of his caliber.
