We’ve all suffered from frustration recently, with King Obama issuing decree after decree and altering the nation’s laws to suit his fancy. This behaviour is a direct affront to the Constitution of the United States and is harming the rule of law in America. Obama has disregarded the will of Congress, and therefore the will of the people, time after time, with almost no consequences.
So it’s humorous to watch the reaction of the White House to the news that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has accepted an invitation from the Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner, to speak to Congress on the Iranian nuclear issue. The administration is furious. The New York Times reports today: “The Obama administration, after days of mounting tension, signaled on Wednesday how angry it is with Israel that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accepted Republican leaders’ invitation to address Congress on Iran without consulting the White House.”
Who else but a King would be furious at a co-equal branch of government exercising their right and freedom to hear from a world leader on a subject that vehemently divides Congress and the country? I have written here before that Obama is allowing Iran to go nuclear on purpose.
The negotiations are a joke. Kerry is a joke.
Congress knows that. The American people, according to the polls, know that. Only a narcissistic king would throw a temper tantrum like the White House is doing.
What about Obama changing immigration law? The Affordable Care Act? Environmental laws?
All without Congressional approval?
Of course Obama has acted on his own. I guess his reaction to the Congressional invitation shows that, in his eyes, it’s not about the country; it’s more about him.
It’s more about his legacy. He wants an agreement with Iran sooo bad, it’s killing him. And these people, worried about the national security of the United States and her allies, are getting in his way.
The New York Times goes on to say: “The outrage the episode has incited within President Obama’s inner circle became clear in unusually sharp criticism by a senior administration official who said that the Israeli ambassador, Ron Dermer, who helped orchestrate the invitation, had repeatedly placed Mr. Netanyahu’s political fortunes above the relationship between Israel and the United States.”
Funny, I guess karma is a b…..
