The Republican wave election of 2014 was the result of voter dissatisfaction on a variety of fronts. As in 2006, when voters elected Democrats on the strength of frustration with the Iraq War, foreign policy was a major part of the sixth-year rebuke to President Barack Obama. Tension in the U.S.-Israel relationship--crystallized in the "chickensh*t" controversy the week before the election--may have cost Democrats at least one U.S. House seat.
