SPEAKER BOEHNER AND NETANYAHU COLOSSAL MISTAKE
Two weeks ago Speaker Boehner invited Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to a joint session of Congress, which is all GOP controlled, and they did it behind Presidents Obama back. First, international relationships between leaders of different countries is delicate, and the tension between President Obama and Netanyahu added more damage to their relationship. Moreover, for Netanyahu… to agree to come and speak illustrates his character as leader and a person; going behind the Presidents of the U.S. to speak to a party bent on not compromising and representing the people that elected them to office demonstrates that he is not a leader understands the importance of the relationship between Israel and the U.S. and that he is focused on his interests and will do whatever he can to get his way. On behalf of Speaker Boehner part, it was bad politics, we know that him and the entire GOP agenda is to be obstructionist, but foreign policy is one area that obstructionism can cause and has caused more harm then good.
