Here are two more stories that tell one complete story.
The first is this story about Obama's lobbying efforts to kill the Keystone XL oil pipeline, that would create thousands of good American jobs and increase our energy supply with oil from a friendly nation, Canada:
President Barack Obama is intervening in a Senate fight over the Keystone XL oil pipeline and personally lobbying Democrats to reject an amendment calling for its construction, according to several sources familiar with the talks.
The White House lobbying effort, including phone calls from the president to Democrats, signals that the vote could be close when it heads to the floor Thursday. The president is trying to defeat an amendment that would give election-year fodder to his Republican critics who have accused him of blocking a job-creating energy project at a time of high gas prices.
The second is this story about Obama's meeting with Bibi Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, in which Obama apparently offered Netanyahu what amounts to a bribe to push Israel's possible attack against Iran's nuclear facilities past the November elections:
What's the unifying narrative? Everything is about Obama's re-election. Jobs don't matter. Energy independence doesn't matter. The existential security of a beleaguered ally, Israel, doesn't matter. The nuclear ambitions of our sworn enemy, Iran, don't matter. Nothing matters except giving this guy four more years to transform America into a quasi-socialist, crony-capitalist, racially-divided shell of its former greatness.
