Just Wondering…

President Obama is heading up a new round of peace talks today between Israel and Palestine. I’m going to remain cautiously optimistic, but the event got me thinking. Obama has thus far helped us stave off a second Great Depression, codified equal pay parameters for women and recompense for violations, helped millions more people get health insurance, provided real oversight and reform for the financial industry, expanded rights for gay people, ended the practice of torture, and drawn the Iraq debacle as close to done as can be. Maybe he didn’t push as far on some issues as certain people would like, but it’s hard to argue he has been ineffective in getting things done.

If he manages to somehow pull off a peace agreement between Netanyahu and Abbas, how long do you think it will take for Republicans to declare that a horrible thing for America?
