Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Oct 1, 2013 — Iran's President Hassan Rouhani is trying to use charm to ease international pressure without scaling back its nuclear efforts, Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu says. "Rouhani thinks he can have his yellowcake and eat it too," Netanyahu told the U.N. General Assembly Tuesday.

In Israel he delivered a hawkish pro-Israel message of support for the conservative government meant to appeal to those U.S. Jews skeptical of President Obama. But his trip also had missteps, notably in Britain but not only there.

Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum appeared tied in Ohio heading into Super Tuesday. Rush Limbaugh's "apology" did little to stem still the outrage over his "slut" remark.

Mar 2, 2012 — Obama told The Atlantic that he doesn't "bluff" as president of the U.S. when he says he's willing to use the military to stop Iran from gaining a nuclear weapon... Maryland became the eighth state to legalize gay marriage... Virginia approved a controversial anti-abortion bill requiring ultrasound which the governor says he will sign.

May 25, 2011 — If President Obama could get a do-over on his Arab Spring speech, would he restate precisely his line about Israel's 1967 borders (with agreed swaps!) being the starting point for renewed talks between Israeli and Palestinian negotiators?From a purely political point of view, it seems unlikely.
