revealed to us in The Atlantic, the Obama administration assigned that epithet to Prime Minister Netanyahu. But then who would really blame them? With the world smoldering in flames and its foreign policy largely in tatters, all the king’s men are feeling none too good about themselves. And who better to blame than the world’s scapegoat? No, I’m not accusing the administration of anti-Semitism. I’ve been one of the loudest voices decrying accusations of anti-Semitism against the President as defamation, character assassination, and an outright lie. The President has demonstrated far too much friendship with the Jewish community to ever be labeled with that epithet. Rather, by scapegoat I mean that if the world is already piling on Israel and blaming it for everything from the rise of ISIS to Hamas’ use of children as human shields, you may as well blame your own foreign policy failures on this soft target. The president’s men feel that the democratically elected leader of Israel is too cowardly to make peace with the Palestinians and too cowardly to strike Iran. The obvious contradiction in the allegation is self-evident and proves something entirely different. The Obama administration has a pathological dislike of the Israeli Prime Minister and will blame him for almost anything, or more specifically, blame him for not handing them the foreign policy success they so desperately crave and need. In no area has the president failed more than in foreign policy. That is not my view, but the view of the American people who have given him the lowest poll numbers in foreign policy than any modern leader with the exception of Jimmy Carter. In this election cycle fellow Democrats have avoided the president like he was carrying the Ebola virus. The videos of Democratic Senate candidates refusing even to acknowledge that they voted for President Obama are the stuff of Jon Stewart comedy.
