Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, our staunchest ally in the Middle East, has been invited by the Speaker of the House, to address Congress. It is within the Speakers purview to make such an invitation. In spite of public denials, the White House was informed. With the present day turmoil in the Mideast, this could be a watershed moment to present our country as a reliable partner.
This should have attention equal to the State of the Union speech. It is, in fact, equally important. This is an American moment that the President and his cohorts are turning into a cheap political moment. Make no mistake, this is an important point in modern history.
Elie Wiesel, holocaust survivor and activist, has announced that he will attend Netanyahu's speech. This man's presence lends a level of gravitas otherwise unattainable. So two of the most important representatives of our most important Mideast ally will be attending a meeting of Congress, and the President and his minions wish to turn this into a two-bit political moment.
There are times that this country must come together. This, it seems, should be one of those times. But the one man that should be leading the parade is AWOL. Since it is not about him and what he wants, it will not get his support or the support of his weak kneed skirt kissers.
Would he be so intransigent if this were a meeting organized in support of his friends at CAIR. Our President and those that are are absent with him have embarrassed our country, it's citizens, and a good and true ally. This is nothing but cheap politics and a President's inability so see the world as it really is.
Mr. Obama, your agenda is not reality. It is merely your agenda. You may believe that you have the power to reshape the world, but you do not. As you steer the "Ship of State", may I suggest that the "five and dime" compass that you seem to be using is not up to the task. We are floundering. You are floundering. I see in you lately, a deep anger. Acting on that anger will only make things worse. It is time to start by rethinking a bad decision. Go to the speech.
