It seems that two years of work with Israel and the Palestinians to reach a settlement, all the two sides agree on is one thing. President Obama is the Problem to reaching an agreement. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1110/45471.html

To be fair, I think it is not the easiest issue in the world to solve, there is a reason it has not been solved until now, even though tons of people have tried to solve it. Don't you think?

what I get from this is that he is creating more problems than they can deal with. He went to Korea and China to finalize two trade deals. He failed on both. His job is not to go in and close the deal but to put his signature on a final deal. As a community organizer he went into negotiations fighting for one side only. In the middle east he is fighting for what he thinks is right and neither side is buying his ideas. He should be listening to each side and trying to find ways to find agreement on little things hoping to build on them for the benefit of both sides.

You mean Israel and Palestinians actually agree on something? That is quite astonishing for a Presidential achievement. It should definitely go on his resume as a shinning example of his leadership ability. Getting two countries that hate each other and have for thousands of years have finally come to a mutual agreement is quite an achievement.

I love the comparison of Obama and rain. So it turns out he can organize a community but not a couple of guys. Does this really surprise, and hey at least he got them agreeing on something.... his failure, but hey baby steps!

Of course he is the problem. He went from a community activist to president with no qualifications, eligibility, or experience... and absolutely n clue as to foreign policy, and he has the result to prove that. The only things he does well is bow low and apologize for America's so-called mistreatment of our enemies. Other than that, and insulting America every chance that he gets, he has done nothing of any substance in foreign policy... however, he did judt recently manage to destroy an agreement that Bush had already gotten signed three years ago... Now THERE is foreign policy expertise at work... Not! What a doofus 0bama be...
