The establishment over there consists of stable Saudi Arabia, and stable Israel.
The democracy-terrorist revolutions in Libya, Egypt, Syria and elsewhere plus Iran, threaten the establishment. True for Libya, Syria, Turkey etc.
Obama will be warned to not attempt further to upset the established order.
It will be explained that the idea of peaceful democratic arabs and muslims is foolhardy. I believe Obama will become enlightened on this trip.
The establishment ill educate Obama the US is NOT energy self-sufficient, still importing millions of barrels of crude daily.
Saudi Arabia has forced price stability, or price increases for crude, in the past. A crude oil price scare just before the 2014 elections would aid Republicans.
Maybe Republican leaders should talk to Saudi Arabia, too. Let them know the GOP would be more friendly with the ME establishment.
Oh, wait. Bush II was pushing for the same revolts Obama pushed for.
