Netanyahu 1, Obama 0

The confrontation between nations turned out to be Benjamin Netanyahu praising Barack Obama -- and the president looking like the trifling fool he is.

Netanyahu -- who was left sitting and waiting for hours at the White House shortly after The Won as in the childish "I won, I will trump you on that" became president -- let bygones be bygones and praised the president.

Oh the media will pump up a feud, but those who saw the prime minister's speech before Congress today know better.

From Netanyahu:
Because America and Israel, we share a common destiny, the destiny of promised lands that cherish freedom and offer hope. Israel is grateful for the support of American -- of America's people and of America's presidents, from Harry Truman to Barack Obama. We appreciate all that President Obama has done for Israel.
Now, some of that is widely known. Some of that is widely known, like strengthening security cooperation and intelligence sharing, opposing anti-Israel resolutions at the U.N.
Some of what the president has done for Israel is less well- known. I called him in 2010 when we had the Carmel forest fire, and he immediately agreed to respond to my request for urgent aid. In 2011, we had our embassy in Cairo under siege, and again, he provided vital assistance at the crucial moment. Or his support for more missile interceptors during our operation last summer when we took on Hamas terrorists.
Hardly sounds angry. You heard of killing with kindness? This is it. By comparison, our president looks peevish and petulant for refusing to see the prime minister and opposing this speech.

Meanwhile, the president held a press conference to say, gee, Netanyahu said nothing new. This must not be tracking well for the president, or he would have continued to ignore the speech he said he was going to ignore. Our friends and our adversaries clearly see his weakness.

We have a boy president -- Peter Pan with a bong who never grew up -- the affirmative action figure who never had to make his bed.

Netanyahu showed the world that President 45 is irrelevant. Time to prepare for President 46.



  1. It must gall the Boy President to know his peevishness turned Netanyahu's speech into a really Big F* Deal. Had he not behaved so badly, or even embraced Netanyahu's visit, far less attention would have been paid to the event. Once again, Obama doesn't know "strategy". Which is what the mullahs know. The Iranians can read him like a book. They know Obama will be desperate to counter the favorable reception Netanyahu's speech received. I expect the mullahs will be taking a harder line on the negotiations from this point on and demanding more concessions from the US....which, unfortunately, they will probably get. We'll see.

  2. Bibi made him look bad in comparison. Unforgivable!

  3. Don't call him "Peter Pan." Peter Pan was an adventurer who, among other things, rescued Tiger Lilly and the Lost Boys from Captain Hook--whatever his other flaws, he had personal courage, loyalty to his friends, and a good sense of right and wrong. Barack Obama's no Peter Pan, and to compare the two is to insult Peter.

  4. I knew Peter Pan and obama is no Peter Pan.

    Peter Pan was relevant!

  5. First Obama said that Bibi had better not reveal any of the secret details of "The Plan" and then he complains there was nothing new in the speech. Sheesh. You'd think he's determined not to like ANYthing this prime minister does :) And we won't even talk about the Jews who want to build apartments in Jerusalem...
