But the enlightened European press may be losing patience with the “Messiah” who was to deliver miracles to a waiting public.
Barack Obama remained silent over the violence in Gaza as Israel today threatened to continue its attacks for weeks.
Instead, the President-elect is continuing his 12-day Christmas holiday in Hawaii and was seen enjoying a round of golf.
He joined a group of friends at a private club near his Â£6million rented, beach-front holiday home yesterday.
Meanwhile, 9,000 miles away in the Middle East, Israel today rejected any truce with Hamas and said it was ready for ‘long weeks of action’ in the Gaza Strip.
Obama will be President soon enough and will actually have to make decisions.
Flap is not optimistic that he can rise to the challenge. A good speech with a teleprompter does not a good President make.
