Hat-tip Frank Jones
We know that neither Boehner nor Netanyahu are particularly fond of the President, but that’s not …the point. An elected official conspiring with a foreign head of state to undermine U.S. foreign policy and the Office of the President borders on treason. And that is exactly what Speaker Boehner’s invitation to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu does. John Boehner and his allies have allowed their petty politics to best them. It appears that their distaste for President Obama have overshadowed the need to respect the Office of the President, Congress, and the American people. Inviting Netanyahu, Putin, or any other head of state to debate our foreign policy in the House of Representatives without consulting the White House goes beyond the pale. And the fact it was done in secret show the traitorous nature of it all. Speaker John Boehner’s sophomoric actions are beneath the high standards set by all of his predecessors. The ethics committee should look into this matter.
As for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, how dare he come with hat in hand asking that we support his government with our “Blood and treasure” as he overtly disrespects two of ours most sacred government institutions… What ignorance is this? Republicans, Democrats and Independents, may disagree on numerous issues, but not at the expense of our governing institutions.
