(via Examinar). Karl Rove, Sean Hannity's guest, agreed with Hannity's viewpoint that Obama's misguided demands on Israel was "one of the most embarrassing moments" he had seen for an American President in his lifetime. Rove made several pointed observations about Obama's diplomatic blunders and misuse of the power of the Oval office, while praising Prime Minister Netanyahu's "poise and sublety and strength" as Netanyahu soundly rejected Obama's proposal. Hannity agreed that Netanyanhu left Obama looking emotionally "tight and defensive" :
"Was he hoping to sorta cow Prime Minister Netanyahu into silence in the Oval Office? This goes to show the difficulty of the United States trying to impose a settlement on its timetable and its terms in the Middle East. By doing so, we cause stresses and strains within the Israeli political system and the Palestinian political system, making it difficult to actually get an agreement".
If Obama's goal was to pressure Israel into doing this, it was poor judgment on Obama's part to invite the Prime Minister over for a little chat the next day after such an inflammatory speech, posited Rove.
