Netanyahu is foaming at the mouth, mad to attack. Obama is only holding off for the election. If he's put back in office, it won't take long for the bombs to drop. I don't believe Obama is backing off for any other than political reasons. The closer it gets to election time, the more careful and seemingly anti war, politicians get, to appease voters who are sick of it.
I don’t disagree with your observation at all….
The question I’m asking is – Shouldn’t Obama step up and take a leadership role here?
Wouldn’t he be the champion of his party if he talked Bibi down?
Absolutely. If Obama can have any influence, he should step up. Making arrangements for Leno, shows just where his priorities are. Misplaced.
