Congress shows their Hatred of Obama by throwing America under the Bus

According to the article titled “Boehner invites Netanyahu to address Congress on Iran, after Obama veto threat” by an Unknown Author for Fox, “House Speaker John Boehner announced Wednesday he is inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress next month about the threat from Iran, in a sharp rebuke to President Obama. “Prime Minister Netanyahu is a great friend of our country, and this invitation carries with it our unwavering commitment to the security and well-being of his people,” Boehner said in a statement. “In this time of challenge, I am asking the prime minister to address Congress on the grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and way of life.” “Boehner told members of the GOP House Conference on Wednesday morning: “The president warned us not to move ahead with sanctions on Iran, a state sponsor of terror. His exact message to us was: 'Hold your fire.' He expects us to stand idly by and do nothing while he cuts a bad deal with Iran. Two words: 'Hell no'."  He said: "Let’s send a clear message to the White House – and the world – about our commitment to Israel and our allies.”

Boehner and Congress is playing a very dangerous game right now because of what is not in this article.  President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu have two very different ways that they see dealing with Iran.  President Obama wants to try and reason with them while keeping all options on the table while Prime Minister Netanyahu is willing only to explore the military option.  This seems like a smart strategy to them because none of those refusing to try something new will ever have to put their lives in jeopardy and appears to not mind putting the lives of other people’s children in harm’s way.  Where this game of “one-upping” the president is dangerous is once it is fully understood by the people of Iran, that America and those attempting a different track are doing nothing but pulling their chains, the hateful rhetoric by Iranian leaders will heat up and those who have pushed hatred of this country for so long will be proven right. 

We say this nation wants peace all over the globe but we make no effort in trying to get that because we are still stuck in this childhood playground game of trying to find out which kid has the biggest toys.  Mr. Boehner says that the president expects them to sit back and do nothing which may be simply because when it comes to authorization of the current conflict or passing jobs bills for America even fixing our immigration problem, that is all Congress has been doing is sitting back.  I guess it’s true, hate someone enough to win regardless of the cost.  I guess the health, wealth and the welfare of this nation is the cost of doing business in Washington.  Then again, none of those in Washington will ever have to worry about dodging one bullet if we have to fight those we refuse to talk to.
