    Well practically speaking Obama, although quite intelligent, was just a half black guy from Chicago with no money. He has to deal with a very powerful group of people in the Jews. It is amazing that he has stoop up to them this much. Quite a bit of courage on his part.
    He has stood up to the State of Israel probably more than any president in modern history at least. One aspect of his foreign policy I appreciate.

    Yes he has. James Baker and H W Bush tried to stand up to them too. But they are very difficult to deal with. You see how Boehner disgustingly invited Netanboohoo to speak? That is beyond whack. Who the hell wants to hear that guy talk. Even Sarkozy said he was a liar.

    More distortions of reality.

    More exaggeration. Figures.

    The White House knew of the invitation prior to his accepting it.

    Which was the same as previously happened with no flack from the White House.
    Yet this time Obama wanted to make a big deal about it.

    You bring up a good point. The president being in charge of foreign policy should have been consulted on that matter. Those that think it shows guts on the part of republicans and a measure of frustration with the president would be raising hell if this was done to a republican president............just pointing out the ever present hypocrisy of the partisan.

    People like Boehner don't give a damn about foreign policy. All he cares about is getting elected and getting money so that he can get drunk, get sun tans, and play golf. Did you see how he came on TV drunk? Inviting Netanboohoo to speak like that will get him points with "the lobby."

    Oy Vey!
    There is no good point there.
    The President knew before he accepted and as usual, did not respond to being notified.

    Hey Ex, Reuters is reporting a different version than yours. Guess which one I'm going with.

    (Reuters) - When U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, a Republican, jolted Washington this week by inviting Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress, his office said it had been done "on behalf of the bipartisan leadership."

    In reality, it was among the most partisan moves so far by America's newly Republican-controlled Congress. Fuming Democratic leaders in Congress have said they were not consulted, raising questions over whether Boehner had accurately characterized the nature of his invitation.

    You can go with them all you want. You would still be wrong.
    Obama knew.

    Did the Obama Administration lie about Netanyahu? (Updated and revised)

    [...]
    The Times then issue the following correction. “An earlier version of this article misstated when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel accepted Speaker John A. Boehner’s invitation to address Congress. He accepted after the administration had been informed of the invitation, not before.
    [...]

    More in depth coverage at NewsBusters.

    [...]

    On the other hand, over at American Thinker, Ed Lasky notes that a visit like this is not exactly unprecedented: “In 2011, Boehner sent a notice to the WH stating his intention to invite Netanyahu to speak before a joint session of Congress. The White House never responded (spite? incompetence?) and Boehner proceeded to extend the invitation to Netanyahu. Netanyahu accepted the invitation and spoke. The White House did not express any outrage in 2011.”

    ... When informed of Boehner’s invitation (this year — Ed.), the White House publicly took a “wait and see” attitude, rather than announcing its opposition. According to Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer, once the White House knew about the invitation, the Israeli government (contra [the Washington Post's Richard] Cohen and others) was in contact with U.S. government officials, in both Washington and Jerusalem. It doesn’t appear that the White House conveyed to Netanyahu that the president expected him to decline the invitation.
