Americans Back Bibi over Obama!

This is probably hard for the Israeli Left to accept, since they have been using United States President Barack Hussein Obama's antipathy to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as a campaign platform trying to paint him as hated in America, therefore unfit to govern Israel, but American polls show that a majority of Americans think that Obama should mend his ways and mouth and meet with the Israeli leader.
A new poll released Wednesday suggests that while most Americans think it was inappropriate of Republican House Majority Leader John Boehner to invite Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address the US Congress on Iran next month — raising the ire of the White House — a majority believe President Barack Obama should meet with the Israeli leader nonetheless

Obama, with the confidence of his position as lame duck, nothing to lose has been showing more and more of his anti-Israel and lack of sensitivity to antisemitism.

Besides his unrestrained anger at Netanyahu's acceptance of an invitation to speak to Congress, he incredulously (where was the staff to prep him?) referred to the terror attack in the Paris kosher supermarket in a way ignoring the facts that it was Muslims against Jews.
Obama, in describing terror threats during a lengthy interview with the news site Vox, said the American people were right to be concerned "when you've got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris."
Administration officials at first defended Obama's comments, with White House spokesman Josh Earnest saying that while the administration was aware of the "motivation" of the gunman, the president was making the point that those killed in the kosher supermarket "were not targeted by name." (Israel Hayom)
What is happening with the slow-starting American Presidential campaign? There doesn't seem to be anyone who can roll back the anti-Israel atmosphere in the highest government echelons there.

It's not really slow starting. The beginning of the year before a presiodential election campaign is really early.

I think, though, what's going on, is that the general supposition is that Hillary Clinton will run, but she's delaying an announcement. She did that before several times.

Meanwhile some infighting has broken out among people connected to the Clintons.

It could be she fears exposure of scandals, and that's not an impossibility.

Or it's just delay as lonmg as possible so that people don't prepare.

Hillary has been campaigning for close to ten years already. If it wasn't for the unexpected support the Kennedy women gave to Obama, she would have gotten the nomination and may have been elected.
