During Monday’s press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Barack Obama responded to a reporter asking if he was angry with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for accepting Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to address Congress.
Included in Obama’s response was this insulting and untruthful nugget: “We have a practice of not meeting with leaders right before their elections, two weeks before their elections,” adding, “As much as I love Angela, if she was two weeks away from an election, she probably would not have received an invitation to the White House. And I suspect she wouldn’t have asked for one. So, you know, the — so, you know, this is just — some of this just has to do with how we do business.”
With that barbed comment Obama implies that he knows what Merkel would do, though he has never dealt with the Chancellor at a time when the U.S. was about to sell out her nation in a perilous nuclear deal with a neighbor committed to destroying Germany —- the situation Netanyahu is facing with Iran. Netanyahu’s March 3 address will focus on the dangers of a nuclear Iran.
In fact, Obama did meet with Merkel just two months prior to her 2013 election and has met with other world leaders under similar circumstances.
Even the leftist editorial board of the Washington Post expresses “major concerns” over the Obama administration’s risky nuclear negotiations with Iran.
Obama’s fabricated rule regarding not meeting with foreign leaders close to an election doesn’t explain why Secretary of State John Kerry and VP Joe Biden met with Netanyahu’s chief political rival Isaac Herzog this past weekend.
Breitbart exposes an anti-Netanyahu group called “One Voice,” which has rented offices in Israel. Reportedly funded by liberal American donors, the campaign team is suspiciously led by Obama’s 2012 national field director Jeremy Bird.
WND provides an in-depth report on Bird, who is “taking his wildly successful Chicago-esque, Alinsky brand of community organizing to Tel Aviv,” where the field specialist has been making headlines for his paid consultancy to V15, an Israeli organization working to defeat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu” in the March 17, General Election.
The back story to Obama’s double-standard manner of just “doing business” is jaw-droppingly deceptive.
