Obama gets creative?

If only 'fresh eyes' meant waking up to the reality that there is no 'Palestinian partner' for peace. Alas, it is far more likely that 'fresh eyes' is the vision in the illustration at the top of this post.
"Both the United States and Israel are going to have to look at this new landscape with fresh eyes," Obama said Monday night at an event in Washington that charged a minimum $25,000 a couple. "It's not going to be sufficient for us just to keep on doing the same things we've been doing and expect somehow that things are going to work themselves out. We're going to have to be creative and we're going to have to be engaged."

Obama said Israel is the United States' "closest ally" and that he was committed to Israel facing the challenges "from a position of strength," noting the closeness between the two countries' defense establishments and his increase in defense assistance to Israel.

Obama, who has clashed with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government over settlement building and parameters for peace talks with the Palestinians, said that in the coming months "there may be tactical disagreements in terms of how we approach these difficult problems."
He'll say anything to get re-elected, won't he?

Wellllll...."closest ally" except for those pesky "tactical disagreements":


Which always seems to translate to the "tactical difference" between riding on the magical mystery tour hope and change Obama bus and being thrown under it.

Yup. Israel has no negotiating partner. That is a reality the Obama Administration won't comprehend.

What could go wrong indeed
