NETANYAHU DELIVERS STATE OF THE UNION II FOR REPUBLICANS

Republicans are not about to sit back and allow our country to be led by a black man without giving him some competition. Even if it means dragging a white war mongering foreigner in front of the Congress Of the United States so they can have someone (and something) to stand up and cheer about.



If the way these clowns behave wasn't almost treasonous it would be comical. Allowing foreign leaders to stand in front of America's elected officials in the House of the American people to criticize, demean,  threaten, and attempt to diminish the authority of this countries Commander in Chief is a despicable act and a direct affront to the nations Constitution and political system.



Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress interrupted by standing ovations - Telegraph


Netanyahu's speech culminated a diplomatic storm triggered by his acceptance in January of a Republican invitation that bypassed the White House and Obama's fellow Democrats, many of whom considered it an affront to the president.

Obama refused to meet Netanyahu, saying that doing so just ahead of Israel's March 17 general election would be seen as interference. Aides to Obama said he would not be watching the speech, broadcast live on U.S. television.

Underscoring the partisan divide over Netanyahu's address, House of Representatives Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said afterwards that as a friend of Israel, she was near tears during his speech, calling it "an insult to the intelligence of the United States." She said she was "saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran."

Netanyahu entered the chamber to a cacophony of cheers and applause, shaking hands with dozens of lawmakers, including House Speaker John Boehner, before taking a podium and telling lawmakers he was deeply humbled.



Although given the cold shoulder by the U.S. administration, Netanyahu on Monday offered an olive branch, saying he meant no disrespect to Obama by accepting an invitation to speak to U.S. lawmakers that was orchestrated by the president's rival Republicans.
