I asked myself why would the President allow these kind of headlines in the last two months of the campaign:
Obama refuses meeting with Netanyahu
Especially when a vital cog of the Democratic coalition is the Jewish vote? A potential swing group that is available to Romney?
Mitt Romney's friend Benjamin Netanyahu is trying to pressure the President into a neo-con position concerning Iran. Obama showing his strength and determination not to start anoother war has refused toer meet with the Prime Minister and is baiting Romney to take a stance.
The President would love Romney to come out taking scheap shots for "dissing" a friend, and thtn he'll demand Romney take a stand on Iran. Should Obama set a deadline? Obama won't. If Mitt says yes, Obama will accuse him of war mongering. That is a losing issue for Republicans. If he basically agrees with Obama then Democrats will accuse him of playing politics.
