    As a strong Left Leaning Independent I was favorable towards Israel. I blamed both sides in the Israeli conflict equally but I identified more with Israel.
    After the unacceptable insult against my Country, I no longer am able to view Israel as favorable. Instead I now view Israel as a foreign enemy that is conspiring with our Right Wing to create war and boost profit.
    I now see myself as being against Israel just as I am against our Right Wing corporate shills.
    Lmao. Wow. Clearly, you have no idea how this country works.

    We have a president, not a king. That means he is in charge of the executive, nothing more. Congress is a totally seperate entity.

    Congress invited Netanyahu to come speak, as it had a right to do. They are in no way obligated to get the nod of approval from the executive.

    If anything, the whining and crying from Obama and the left stand out. This isn't about you, obama, or your ego. America is more than just Barak Obama...American government is more than just Barak Obama....and the fact that his feelings got hurt or that the dems wanted to act like spoiled children who didn't get their way means nothing.

    The bottom line is that congress, as it is more than legally entitled to do, requested that Netanyahu come speak before them. He accepted the request. Obama should have just ignored it, instead he pitched a fit and stomped his feet and got nowhere.

    For the most part, Obama did ignore it. Ignoring it was how he dealt with it. The American people did not ignore it. And we wont let it go either.
    If Obama was a King he would have the shills dragged into the road and shot. Right now I wish he was a King.

    You seem to think this is only about the marriage of our political Right to a foreign government, the invitation to speak just before Bibi's election, and the usage of our Congress as a political pawn for Israel's Right. But it is so much more than that...
    A foreign Government came to our own soil and attempted to conspire with corrupt factions of our own Government to undermine the only chance we have of adverting the largest war this planet has seen since World War 2.
    All of the talk in between is complete bull****. We either get this treaty or we go to war. War with Iran will not be simple. Our own military strongly advises against it. It is only the oil companies and defense lobbyist that want this war. And together they control the Republican ideology like a well used tool.

    There is no partisan shift. You're making it up.

    Once again, CONGRESS INVITED HIM.

    Are they not within their right to do so? Since when is congress answerable to the president??

    We have three seperate but equal branches of government. At least, we're supposed to.

    But you saying you wish Obama were King really tells it all.

    I'm all ears. Please tell me what laws Congress broke by inviting Netanyahu to come speak. I'll hang up and listen.

    They didn't break any laws, but intentionally undermining the president is pretty poor form.

    A form that we know with certainty the right would be raising objection to, were all things reversed, and for good reason.

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.
