There's a connection to be made between Segment 1--where JP discusses Obama's frustration with political push-back--and your later discussion about the confrontation with Netanyahu. A few months back, the incident seemed unique and unprecedented and was therefore presumed to represent a specific indictment of Israel, but more and more--most recently in his visit with Senate Republicans--we're learning that this guy is extremely thin-skinned and has intense resentment of those who resist him. It is possible that the blow-up with Netanyahu was just the first major manifestation of this trait--with many more to come--and perhaps wasn't quite so Israel-specific. Clearly he has an anti-Israel bias, but the lesson of that occasion might have more to do with his temperment than with his grand plan. Maybe he'll take a valium before next week's visit, as Sen. Roberts recommends.
