Obama remembers he hasn't been reelected yet

When President Obama tried to blow off Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday, he apparently forgot that he still faces reelection in less than two months. Obama calmed down, and Politico reported at about 4:30 am Israel time that Obama had spent an hour on the phone with Netanyahu (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
"The two leaders discussed the threat posed by Iran’s nuclear program, and our close cooperation on Iran and other security issues. President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu reaffirmed that they are united in their determination to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, and agreed to continue their close consultations going forward," the White House said in a statement.

The two leaders spoke for an hour, according to the White House.
The White House also denied that Netanyahu had asked for a meeting with Obama.
"Contrary to reports in the press, there was never a request for Prime Minister Netanyahu to meet with President Obama in Washington, nor was a request for a meeting ever denied," the White House said.
If you believe that one, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. The media here have been reported for a week that because Obama is speaking at the UN on Tuesday and Netanyahu is speaking on Thursday, Netanyahu anticipates having to go to Washington to meet with Obama.

Maybe Obama only wants to meet with members of the Muslim Brotherhood outside the UN?

I suspect that he meets his al Shabaab/Muslim Bros while he is "golfing" or "campaigning". He has many many hours of unaccounted-for time, where his schedule is not public and the log/minutes of who he meets with are not released. Remember the guy in the U.S. Kenya embassy with his off the grid communications room in the bathroom? What is that guy doing now?
