Obama the Uniter

At the rate the president is going, pretty soon the only buddies he's going to have left are his "flexibility friends," Dmitry Medvedev and Vladimir Putin (and, of course, the American press -- world without end amen). He's a uniter, all right -- if you're talking about getting people united against him.
Other democratic allies, like valiant Poland, are rightly rattled
about the President's promise to Russia of post-election "flexibility."
Israelis are alienated
by the president's attempts to undermine them vis a vis Iran -- and nervous about the possibility President Obama will scapegoat them for high gas prices.
And now, the President is picking fights with a co-equal branch of government, the judiciary -- some members of which don't seem too pleased (full disclosure - I interviewed with Judge Jerry Smith on the 5th Circuit before accepting a clerkship with Judge Sentelle on the DC Circuit)
You can play along at home . . . or in the comments! There are plenty more examples. The upshot? President Obama is turning out to be a great uniter -- against himself.
