President Obama did listen, although he did not attend, the speech made by Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. According to the American president: “the prime minister did not offer any viable alternative. Even officials in Netanyahu’s government have acknowledged that Iran has live up to the interim deal. Simply acknowledging that Iran capitulate is not a plan.” President Obama was quiet, focused and offered a strong presence that wanted concrete ideas that would end the threat of an Iranian nuclear weapon. Naturally, no such ideas were offered by the mouse that roars nonsense.
Nancy Pelosi, leader of House Democrats was furious at the speech. She was “saddened by the condescension toward our (US) knowledge of the threat posed by Iran.” Congressman Pelosi informed the Israel leader that his speech was “an insult to the intelligence of the United States of America.” For some reason, Representative Pelosi believes that she represents the interests of the United States rather than t he interests of a political party in Israel.
For the first time in the history of the American Congress at least sixty members did not attend an address by a foreign leader. So much for the leadership of John Boehner.
