    CNN/ORC poll: Majority of Americans oppose Netanyahu invite [W:218, 239]

    CNN/ORC poll: Majority of Americans oppose Netanyahu invite - CNN.com

    http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2015/im...ahu%5B1%5D.pdf

    The nationwide poll, released Tuesday, shows 63% of Americans say it was a bad move for congressional leadership to extend the invitation without giving President Barack Obama a heads up that it was coming. Only 33% say it was the right thing to do.
    interesting on its own

    And as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict continues to simmer in the Middle East, the survey found that a similar majority thinks the U.S. should stay out of that fight altogether.
    perhaps even more interesting.



    When looking at these two in concert,
    Are we finally seeing a shift in the general populace with respect to our policies with Israel?


    Still ashamed that Congress gave into Netanyahu's cheap election ploy.

    I am ashamed also. The Speaker of the House, John Boehner, is in the clutches of the Tea Party which seems to have taken over the Establishment Republicans. The Tea Party is the group most irreconcilably opposed to President Obama because he is different; hence, they never miss an opportunity to use vindictive spite against this current US president.

    Yeah I really don't see why Congress thought it was appropriate to bring in the guy in the middle of an election. We should try to stay out of the democratic process of other nations as much as possible.

    I have a different take on the OP quotes of:

    "The nationwide poll, released Tuesday, shows 63% of Americans say it was a bad move for congressional leadership to extend the invitation without giving President Barack Obama a heads up that it was coming. Only 33% say it was the right thing to do."

    The poll only says 63% say it was a bad move to invite without giving the President a heads up. It does not say it was bad move to invite Netanyahu to speak.

    One needs to really look close at how poll questions are asked and how summaries are written.

    Not surprising at all. The President has used his bully pulpit very effectively the last several weeks.

    Wonder what all the effort was about. Why not talk about the great deal he is about to sign with his new best friend in Iran.

    The big deal is Obama is about to go chummy with Iran and that's going to start a ME arms race. Obama's too stuck on his stupid with foreign policy to see the fail train and Bibi's gonna mess his little party up.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yes, the Tea Party is opposed to Obama because he is very different from previous Presidents, and has done the seemingly impossible by being worse than Jimmy Carter. If you voted for this guy twice you have good reason to be ashamed.

    Congress and the Senate must do an end run around this incompetent President before he completely destroys the Middle East and shatters the relationships with all the former American allies.
