Will Netanyahu Try To Torpedo Obama's Reelection?

Sully is concerned.

I've been having similar concerns.

I fear that an Israeli strike at Iran now hurts the Dems no matter what (not to mention the other harms that would result). If Obama goes along with it, then we do the wrong thing, further alienate the ME, and alienate the leftier liberals at home. If he doesn't go along, the wingnuts go ballistic and gain political yardage against him by ramping up their the-Kenyan-is-soft-on-terrorism-and-hates-democracy rhetoric.

Such an attack would also drive up gas prices and increase instability, thus harming the recovery.

I am very, very concerned, FWIW.
