Thursday President Obama gave a speech on the U.S. role in the Middle East. Immediately and predictably the GOP claimed that he was throwing Israel under the bus. World wide reaction was mixed. The fact that neither of the radical factions liked it indicates he must have said something right.
Regardless of what one thinks of the speech, you have to admit that it took real cojones to give that speech one day before meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the White House.
