Speaker John Boehner and Benjamin #Netanyahu Crossed the Line…

Hat-tip Frank Jones

TreasonousWe 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.

  1. Boehner Criticized By Dems And Jewish Leaders Over Invitation To Netanyahu

    When Speaker of the House John Boehner issued his rash and dangerous invitation to Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to Congress, he unleashed a firestorm of criticism. Together, the two men are trying hard to undermine President Obama’s negotiations with Iran in favor of military action. In the process, they are alienating Democrats.

    J Street, a fairly liberal, pro-peace group that advocates for Israel, was alarmed enough that it sent a letter to its members. It asked them to contact their representatives in Congress about withdrawing support for Netanyahu’s appearance. It read:

    “This invitation looks like a thinly veiled attempt to scuttle the critical negotiations taking place right now aimed at ensuring that Iran never acquires a nuclear weapon. Bibi and Obama disagree on how to deal with Iran, and that’s fair. But a foreign leader lobbying Congress is inappropriate.”

    In addition, Dylan Williams, an official with J Street, said:

    “This move by Netanyahu has definitely backfired in terms of Democrats.”

    The dilemma is clear. It is far beyond the pale for the leader of another nation to try to dictate the foreign policy of the United States. Israel, and Netanyahu in particular, have a long history of attempting to do just that. The Israeli leader has an especially conflictual relationship with Obama and gives every appearance of aligning himself with the Republican Party — which, of course, is going to alienate Democrats who might otherwise be supportive.

    The Israeli publication Haaretz quoted an unnamed Democratic Congressman as saying:

    “Netanyahu is shooting himself in the foot because, by turning this into a partisan issue, he may be forcing some Democratic members to choose between Boehner and Obama, which, for them, is no choice at all.”

    Haaretz also reports that protests from Israelis are ‘pouring’ into Prime Minister Netanyahu’s office in Jerusalem. Reporter Chemi Shavez said that a prominent, mainstream Jewish leader told him:

    There are some things you just don’t do!

  4. Ametia says:

    Yes, Frank, not only did Boehner & Netanyahu crossed the line, they, and racist America have erased the LINE, when it comes to President Obama.

    • Liza says:

      Co-sign. The disrespect for the office of the President of the United States and this president in particular is so far beyond anything I have witnessed in my lifetime. Boehner needs to be removed, I honestly think that his hatred for President Obama has entered the realm of mental illness.
