Obama victory spells trouble for Israel's Netanyahu

Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faces an even more awkward time with Washington and re-energized critics at home who accused him on Wednesday of backing the loser in the U.S. presidential election.

With Iran topping his conservative agenda, Netanyahu will have to contend with a strengthened second-term Democratic president after four years of frosty dealings with Barack Obama and a rift over how to curb Tehran's nuclear program.

Facing his own re-election battle in January, polls give Netanyahu little chance of losing but perceptions that he has mishandled Israel's main ally have been seized on by opponents.

2. "Trouble! That starts with 'T' and rhymes with 'C' and stands for COOL!"

I'll be weaving showtune lyrics into the political discourse all day. You're all welcome and try the veal.

Fuck Netanyahu.
