Will The Boehner/Bibi Stunt Backfire?

Benjamin Netanyahu Addresses U.S. CongressWell, the world will be watching as Bibi addresses Congress tomorrow at midday (prime time viewing in Israel) and tries to garner a few more seats for his party. Hopefully, this treasonous stunt by Boehner will backfire big time.

Israelis are more worried about the skyrocketing cost of living and housing than they are about Iran. However, when they are asked about security issues, they feel their own military is more than capable of protecting them. After the military, they rank the relationship with the US as the next most important item concerning their safety.

So quite a few of them are more than horrified that Bibi and Boehner would cook up this little plot to embarrass President Obama and derail talks involving a number of countries re the Iran sanctions issue. The US pours billions of dollars into Israel every year (their national healthcare system is ranked fourth in the world, but don’t tell the GOP that) at the expense of the American tax payer. You can be damn sure the Israelis don’t want this flow of funds to dry up.

I have read a lot of news articles on this today, and I get the distinct impression that many American tax payers are not at all happy with where their dollars are ending up. They feel it would be better spent at home.

The Israelis are not happy, Bibi is interfering in their greatest ally’s politics and they fear a backlash.

Well done Boehner, you traitorous bastard.

You can’t cure stupid, so why try?

    Boehner is a disgrace.

      The only good thing he has going for him is that he could give Sarah Palin lessons on how to evenly apply orange tanning lotion.

      So I guess there’s that.

  2. LOL – – They look like co-joined twins in this pic to me. Do they share the same pickled liver

    I thoroughly disapprove of this palaver. Battalions of lobbyists get paid many thousands of $$ to tell Congress what Bibi wants them to know. This is about Bibi trying to save Bibi’s career.

    Netanyahu is engaging in behavior that is without precedent: He is apparently so desperate to stay in office that he has let the Republicans weaponize his country in their struggle against a Democratic president they despise. Boehner seeks to do damage to Obama, and he has turned Netanyahu into an ally in this cause. It’s not entirely clear here who is being played.

    Oh, but Frankie Graham insists that Israel is our big Christian ally in the fight against the Muslims that have ‘infiltrated the White House!” Oh my…he even says that Bush had Muslim advisors…imagine that! I am so sick of the fake Christians scaring their flocks so they will send them money for the end times. Graham’s salary from Samaritan’s Purse (a non-profit, of course!) is $500,000 a year. That would buy a lot of shoeboxes full of socks and toys for underprivileged kids, but I’m sure Graham, like his grifter buddy Palin, has need of all that cash for his own enterprises. I just wonder where Jesus said that the rich win, and why Graham thinks his totally non-Christian actions and words are ensuring him a place in Heaven. I think these lying, greedy creeps are going to be very surprised on Judgement Day.

    I heard someone on BBC yesterday “mispronounce” his name Boner yesterday (giggle). It’s childish, but I do enjoy it.

    My summing up of the speech: The POTUS is naive; the Americans are stupid and easily manipulated: I am the incarnation of Queen Esther. Apart from that, I (Bibi) got nothing.
