Quote of the Day

Peter Beinart, unhappy with the public statements of Benjamin Netanyahu after Netanyahu’s meeting with President Obama:

If this is what Obama gets for playing nice, perhaps he should consider going back to tough love.

If that’s how quickly Beinart gets frustrated and seeks payback, then I imagine the Palestinians should be be happy he wasn’t the Israeli prime minister after an eight-year peace process and the Camp David proposal resulted in the Second Intifada and waves of suicide attacks. Or when Mahmoud Abbas forgot to get back to Ehud Olmert about his settlement offer. Imagine what kind of tough love Beinart might have unleashed.

And this is considered professional political analysis? How much does The Daily Beast pay Beinart to produce it? To cite commenter Silke, you can’t find this in a pub over a pint?
