On this episode of Politicus Radio, Sarah Jones and Jason Easley discuss the Democratic pushback to the disrespect that was shown to President Obama by Netanyahu and Boehner.
Listen to the show (starting at 7:30 EST):
The Democratic boycott continues to grow every day as Sen. Patrick Leahy announced that he would be skipping Netanyahu’s speech to Congress. Democratic anger has not been decreasing in the way that both Netanyahu and Boehner hoped.
It is expected that Democratic outrage and resistance will grow as Boehner and Netanyahu continue to insist on moving forward with a scheme that has turned into a disastrous idea.
The question is how Democratic voters treat those Democrats who choose to attend the speech?
Should Democrats be held accountable, and if so, how?
Mr. Easley is the founder/managing editor and Senior White House and Congressional correspondent for PoliticusUSA. Jason has a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. His graduate work focused on public policy, with a specialization in social reform movements.
