O'bummer Must Go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
4. Goals achieved
Dr D ,   Jerusalem   (07.16.12)
His historic speech in Cairo was the starting point and a push for the Muslim Renaissance and the fall of some old regimes . What next?
5. He arrogantly promised peace in two years and beat on Israel
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (07.16.12)
but didn't beat on the terrorists. He is nothing but a failure and he wants four more years of failure, well NO, NO and NO.
6. Imbecille !.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (07.16.12)
I Quote - Obama says 'failed' to push Mideast peace In interview with ABC7, US president says he feels he hasn’t been able to achieve desired progress in Israeli-Palestinian peace process. 'Parties have to want it as well,' he says Comment - That is what was wrong with you - to Push !. Further - "I have not been able to move the peace process forward in the Middle East the way I wanted." "It's something we focused on very early. But the truth of the matter is that the parties, they've got to want it as well." Comment - That was the Cause of failure - The way You wanted. Anybody sober in ming could have told you, but as the Egoist you are you would not listen. You are a Looser and Usefull Idiot only. Hopfully you will henceforward listen to Israel, Who understands this better than you. By Jerk. Arn.Sweden
7. You failed to understand the FACTS in the Israeli situation
Esq62 ,   Israel   (07.16.12)
It's OUR LAND. ALL OF IT. And we're not giving away one damn inch.
8. Gave Abbas the excuse to evade negotiations &cry victim.
When in fact as Condy Rice says in her book he refused peace and borders from Olmert because he wants to push his manufactured refugees into Israel. That is what the Pals really want,to occupy both states. Time for Israel to set its own secure and defensible borders and stop fooling itself about Arab peace intentions. Leave the apologists,useful idiots & their uncritical media to keep pretending Abbas. let alone Hamas want peace.
9. #7 You failed to understand...
J ,   Israel   (07.16.12)
Sounds like a plan. So does Israel now give citizenship to everyone in ALL the land or push them outside the borders? (Keep in mind that Arabs outnumber Jews in ALL the land.)
10. Amateur
ex-frummie ,   johannesburg, S.A.   (07.16.12)
11. 'I failed to make peace in the ME'
tiki ,   belgium   (07.16.12)
That's a good starter. Now the rest! Conclusion: "I have failed as a President .....on all fronts! Had I been more successfull, I would have bragged about it 24/7 in my re-election campaign and wouldn't have to throw buckets of dirt at ex-Pres. Bush and Rep. nominee Mitt Romney all the time. I was a good campaigner but a bad president, in fact, the worst ever! The world didn't become safer, I didn't unite anybody & the economy is still in shambles". I made a mess of it, sorry folks"! "I'm Barack Hussain Obama and I endorse this message".
12. Yes, Mr. President .. now it is too late
Keren IL-BR   (07.16.12)
We are heading fast to the One State Solution and you will have the honor to see, in four years hence, the birth of Isratine. Freaks, like the B. ones, nurture the idea that Palestinians will move to Jordan, by force or willingly, but we all know they will not. So, they will be Israeli citizens. Yes, Obama, you made a bad job and managed to destroy our Zionist dream forever. You wanted one Stae for Arabs and Jews? Now you have it. Enjoy it.
13. Obama will be the one to get Israel to ink that...
seven year peace treaty. Some Ynet readers should be familiar with it.
14. BA says penny dropped; damage done
Norbus ,   Jerusalem   (07.16.12)
Meantime, Obama. the worst USA President has tipped against Israel the balance of power with the hostile neighbours. Clever ploy that, as Obama removes the damage he brought about from the table for the elections. Let us call a spade a spade; resettle Palis into Jordan, spend the money building an economy there rather than waste on war talk, teaching hate, and perpetuating a no win situation.
15. He made it even worse
Yael Schlichting ,   Qiryat Motzkin   (07.16.12)
By pushing Israel so hard and fondling the Arabs, he created the impression, that there was more to gain for the Arabs. It's not only Israel that needs hard words! It's the terrorists, that first must not be honoured for their crimes. I.E. EU must stop to talk to Hamas! It was a grave mistake to exclude Israel from that summit against terrorism in Turkey. I mean, it's the Arabs who created this mess! Holding conferences with them to fight terrorism is to be asking for trouble! No, Obamas biggest failure was, that he didn't try to understand the Middle East Conflict on the first hand!
16. #7 - YOUR facts are WRONG
Esq62 ,   Israel   (07.16.12)
Please get your info from reputable sources (ie: Yoram Ettinger). There is no "demographic" problem.
17. There is no "peace process."
Reuven   (07.16.12)
Tjhere never really has been one. The Palis do not want peace. The only thing they really want is to murder Jews.
18. Obama - keep the money give back
the Nobel peace prise!
19. Obama Helped Destabilize the Middle East
Netanya ,   Netanya   (07.16.12)
Obama has done more to harm the peace process than any other American leader. He has destabilized the entire region, led Syria to a civil war, led Egypt to become an Islamic hell hole, and all the while demanding that Israel give in to those who wish only her demise. Obama is just a liar, hence this article which makes it seem like he only did nothing about the peace process, while he did, he made war a much closer reality. Iran soon will have the nuke and will be part of many more of the countries in the Middle East, giving weapons and adding to terrorism all over the world. Obama is definitely on the side of the terrorists, that is the clearest thing here.
20. #11 The Republic Campaign Should use your comment
Netanya ,   Netanya   (07.16.12)
Good one! And true!
21. Next mandate try 1 binational state solution.
X   (07.16.12)
22. LOL.
lola ,   australia   (07.16.12)
23. And how do all of you know that this wasn't one -
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (07.16.12)
big conspiracy !
24. B.A. is Not a marriage counselor
mba ,   Israel   (07.16.12)
Like blaming a failing marriage on the marriage counselor. Neither side wants to compromise on a peace accord. We have to accept this and deal with it accordingly. Our relationship with the US is a parent/child one; where the parent has spared the rod and spoiled the child. The US should withdraw all financial aid to all mid eastern countries (including Israel) and then let the dust settle. Time to grow up and cut the cord.
25. give him another Nobel Peace prize
Golan ,   Modiin   (07.16.12)
sort of like his stimulus. Maybe the last medal was just not being enough.
26. #9 you do not know how to count.
Golan ,   modiin   (07.16.12)
the PLO count the Arab citizens of Israel one as Palestinian, again as Palestinians living in Balestine and those living in Jerusalem are counted a third time as Arabs living in jerusalem. And your numbers also include the Arabs in Gaza. So while the land is ours, the real demographic threat comes from Acco, Taibe, Rahat, and Jaffa and not from Hebron, Ramallah, and Gaza
27. Drumbeats of war
Tim ,   Brighton   (07.16.12)
Today yet another formal threat by the IR of Iran Regime to close the Hormuz The new pipeline that bypasses Hormuz will be a considerable undermining of their leverage when they attempt to close it - so they have to act very soon In the last three weeks there have been over 10 FORMAL declarations and warnings that the Hormuz WILL be closed if sanctions are not lifted. The latest one being THIS MORNING..So why this constant repetition..? Its the perfect 'I warned you enough and no one listened' excuse Can the regime make it any clearer to the world community?
28. does this mean he'll give up the Nobel Prize he got 4 nothin
29. ME is one of a multitude of failures
Ilan   (07.16.12)
If he had only failed with Israel then he might have some credibility. He has failed everywhere but in the beltway (perhaps).
30. Perhaps Obama realizes ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (07.16.12)
.... that he's been bullying the wrong side all along. Well, Mr. President, you shouldn't have taken your marching orders from your good friend the Reverend Wright. Of course, you did drop some Arab states into the garbage heap -- hope you can live with yourself. Or were you following your personal agenda all along?
