Boehner Blames Obama For His Plot With Netanyahu To Stab The President In The Back


In the ultimate case of blame the victim, John Boehner is trying to blame President Obama for going behind the president’s back and plotting with Netanyahu.


Transcript via Fox News Sunday:

WALLACE: You’ve created quite a controversy by inviting Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to speak to a joint session of Congress without telling the White House.

Now, everyone from Vice President Biden down to 12 congressional Democrats have said they are not going to attend.

Haven’t you taken one of the few bipartisan issues in this country, support for Israel, and turned it into a political football?

BOEHNER: I have not. The fact is we have every right to do what we did. I wanted the prime minister to come here.

There’s a serious threat facing the world and radical Islamic terrorists are not going to go away. The president devoted but a few words to it in the State of the Union address.

And then when it comes to the threat of Iran having a nuclear weapon — these are important messages that the Congress needs to hear and the American people need to hear. And I believe that Prime Minister Netanyahu is the perfect person to deliver the message of how serious this threat is.

WALLACE: But when you talk with Ron Dermer about inviting Netanyahu, you told him specifically not to tell the White House.

Why would you do that, sir?

BOEHNER: Because I wanted to make sure that there was no interference. There’s no secret here in Washington about the animosity that this White House has for Prime Minister Netanyahu. And I frankly didn’t want them getting in the way and quashing what I thought was a real opportunity.

Netanyahu is blaming Boehner, so the Speaker of the House is blaming the president for his own decision, not to inform the White House of his invitation to Netanyahu. Essentially John Boehner is blaming the target of his plot for the fact that the whole scheme has blown up in his face.

Republicans continue to base all of their hopes on their myth that Obama hates Israel. In their minds, Netanyahu is Israel, so if the president would have objected to the Netanyahu invitation, it’s because he hates Israel.

The plot to humiliate the president has failed. Polling reveals that most people support the president’s position that he should have been notified, and they believe that Boehner acted inappropriately.

The whole scheme has completely unraveled, and John Boehner has returned to his default position of blame Obama.

  1. When are the people of Ohio gonna wake the fuck up and vote this useless piece of shit out of office? Name one thing he has done as speaker that has benefitted the “people” that his lying ass claims to be listening to?

  2. I know I may be stupid but since when has Iran been a Islamic radical state?

    They do have boots on the ground fighting ISIS.

    They have never invaded or occupied another country in over 150 years

    I get it they support Hezbollah. But correct me if I am wrong. Syria supports Hezbollah. Russia supports Syria. Can you say 50 shades of gray?

    America wake the fuk up. The likud and the neo cons do not have your interest at heart.

    I wish when the drunk one bloviate someone would ask him at what cost.

    How many lives should we send into the meat grinder? How much should we spend our money?

    And to you quislings who get their news from the war media machine I would ask you this.

    Who is a greater threat to nuclear terrorism, an unstable state like Pakistan who has over 100 WMD’S or Iran who has none

    Think about it

  3. Ohio must enjoy electing politicians that disrespect the President of the United States and what could easily be called TREASON.

  4. Boner is an absolute dick.

    I live 15 miles north of his ignorant district and I end up warping time whenever I pass through it…

  5. Boehner is a L I A R. No ifs and or buts.

  6. i thought about it, as i think about this all the time. in fact, i do enough thinking for hundreds of my “fellow patriots” to whom are lost in the bubble of dumbness.
    i am so far from being anti-israel, but those in the that government do some atrocious chit! never are they held accountable.
    as once stated, if Judaism came before Christianity, then we must all be Jews, right? (to those who identify with religious ideology). if i recall during my bible study days, Islam is just as old or older and ideologic as Judaism, soooo…(i digress)
    this supposed hatred comes from the muslim president playing in the backyard of israel! smh

  7. I don’t get it. Isn’t it illegal for the Speaker of the House to basically go above the President’s head in cases of international issues?

    Why isn’t something being done here? If the President wanted to speak with Netanyanhu, he would of. Problem is that Israel is so dead set in it’s fear of Iran blowing it off the map (which is true) then anything other then ‘Help me! Help me! I want you to help me kick Iran’s ass!!’ is considered hating them.

    Is the President’s idea of peace talks that bad? I don’t think so.

  8. Huff Post is sure messing up! How are they gonna know if someone likes them or not? Now, if want to vote someone up, you must share! I don’t share! My friends would not like being targeted !

  9. Nothing wrong with it? Mr. Boehner there are protocols governments follow that include not influencing elections that could have disastrous implications around the world for us. This drunken orange idiot needs to be impeached for treason. Typical gotp knee jerk actions without thought of an outcome.

  10. Netanyahu and Israel are being investigated by the International Court at the Hague for war crimes, genocide and extreme cruelty.

    How do the Pro “Life” Republicans feel about 108 preschool age and infants being killed in last Summer’s (clearly asymmetrical) war?

    The cognitive dissonance with these people is unreal!

  11. Boner will be voted out of office just as soon as Ohio outlaws gerrymandering. Which means he’ll stay in politics until either the Sun swallows the Earth, or Teapartiers find a way to eat him, whichever comes first.

  12. Wallace: “why did you do that.”
    Boehner: ‘Because I wanted to make sure there was no interference from the WH.”
    Transfer: I wanted to make the Prez look like a jackals on the world stage, so I deliberately kept the WH in the dark. But, it’s not working out as I had planned, because, in today’s GOP, we never think things through, being the amoral, bigoted, lying, sob’s that the GOP is today.

    Therefore, I must appear on Republican friendly media and blame the Prez for giving me permission for attempting to make him look like a Jackson the world stage cuz it’s not working.
    Instead of the black man in the WH appearing to be a fool on the world stage, it will be me, and that is not acceptable! And he wins again! He wins EVERY TIME and I have HAD ENOUGH of THE BLACK MAN in THE WH MAKING A FOOL OF ME WITHOUT EVEN TRYING!!!!!!!

  13. If he wants a war with Iran that damn badly, why can’t he send his own troops to Iran and do it that way?

    It would be a hell of a lot easier for him to do that then trying to get America to clean up his mess.

  14. Considering Speaker Boehner’s contempt for our Hallowed Halls of Congress, it would have been prudent to place a sign saying, “Irish need not apply.”

    Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton appeared on News Hour to discuss the 9-11 Report at which time they stated that the attack on the WTC and the Pentagon was to protest the presence of U.S. forces in Saudi Arabia and our support for Israel. Bin Laden pressed Mohammad to stage the attacks as early as mid-2000 after Ariel Sharon offended many Muslims by visiting the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. He tried to accelerate the operation again when he learned Sharon would be visiting the White House in June or July 2001.

    So perhaps you can understand why Americans become very anxious when Israeli leaders come to America. Will their presence provoke another terrorist attack on America? Will those Americans with dual citizenship fighting for the IDF terrorists provoke another terrorist attack on America? Anyone who places the security of the…

  15. Boehner thinks he’s the president. Has anyone else noticed Boehner’s look each time he is in a photograph with President? PURE HATRED! Boehner you are NOT the president and you don’t have the power you think you have!!!!

  16. The drunkin Boehead and his treason plot aren’t fooling anyone but himself. Even one of Israel largest news organization is calling out Bone-head and Nut-n-yahoo on their BS.

    Their plot is back firing big time China (one of the P5+1) is pushing Iran to accept the Nuclear deal. Which Iran is given credit to China. If this deal go through.

    U.S. is limiting their info it share with Israel on Iran nuclear talks:

    U.S. are starting to show optimism on Iran nuclear deal:

    The P5+1, U.S. and Iran are all saying they won’t need an extinction time table for talks.

    I pray this work out.

  17. What right do we, or any other country, have in telling Iran what they can or cannot have or do inside their own borders? Do we give them money? We shell out billions to Israel who steadfastly refuses to allow inspection of their industry, and yet we make demands on Iran? Something is wrong with that. Israel’s Netty is only coming here to foment war with Iran. This is what he wants and this is what the Repubs want.

  18. ” if i recall during my bible study days, Islam is just as old or older and ideologic as Judaism”

    Not true. Islam was founded a few centuries after Christianity.

  19. I wrote to Senator Casey and asked him to either not attend Mr. Netanyahu’s speech or better yet, walk out as he’s about to give the speech. I didn’t bother writing to Senator Toomey for obvious reasons. We all need to write our Congressmen and express our opinion on this matter. What Mr. Boehner is doing is wrong and our Senators and Representatives should not support this bad decision by attending.

  20. If the Republicans think Americans are going to go to war against Iran on behalf of Israel they are certifiably insane. Israel wants the US to pay for the war, fight the war with our military, for Israel’s interests. It’s not going to happen. It’s time the USA considered our own best interests in the Middle East and more war there is not in our best interests.

  21. NoBoner has proven once again that he’s a fool and a failure and is deficient in masculinity. He’s forever blaming someone else for his failures. He’s a poor excuse for a man.

  22. One added comment: why should America BE THE ONLYONE with LIVES on the line for the world? are WE, the police men of the world? if so, who said so…
    ISIS is a threat to the world, if the world thinks this, the world should be fighting this evil. The world should be involved in eliminating them.
    I do not, want to see one more American Military person come home in a box or wounded beyond repair.
    Of course, all the dead and wounded come from the working class, NONE from the very rich( they always have better things to do.)

  23. And in Israel there are “free” abortions, paid for most likely by the American taxpayer in the great welfare check we have to send Israelis. Do you know we pay more per capita in welfare payments to Israeli citizens than we do to our own?

  24. The drunken sot has succeeded in stopping our state department from updating Israel on the Iran talks, good move, now they can stop trying to sabotage everything we do.

  25. I wrote to my congressman John Yarmuth last week. This mornings local paper said he would not attend. I’m proud to call him my congressman. Even though he is a strong supporter of Israel, and a Jewish american, he is an AMERICAN first. More than I can say for my two senators, McConnell and Paul.

  26. So, in other words, Boner invited Bibi in order to provoke a terrorist attack on US soil, at the same time he is threatening to de-fund Homeland Security? Wow.

  27. Netanyahu has now offended the Danes and the French, by telling the jews to leave those countries and move to Israel to be safe (at our expense?)

  28. The concern that Iran’s civilian nuclear power program will be converted to a weapons program is identical to the situation in Israel in the early 60s before President Kennedy was tragically assassinated (?by Israel) while he was attempting to prevent Israel from converting its civilian nuclear power program into a weapons program with inducements. Israel took the inducements, Hawk missiles, but continued with its nuclear weapons program.

    Jack Ruby, (Jacob Rubenstein) murdered Lee Harvey Oswald before he could reveal what he knew about the assassination of President Kennedy. Arlen Specter served on the commission that looked into the death of President Kennedy and many questioned his integrity. Many believe that Israel had President Kennedy murdered because President Kennedy was trying to stop Israel from developing the bomb!

    The notion that America is supposed to attack Iran to stop the Persians from acquiring nuclear weapons capability is absurd since we could not stop…

  29. Nearly two thirds of Americans oppose Boehner’s invite to Benjamin Netanyahu

    A large majority of Americans believe that Republican congressional leaders should not have invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to Congress without consulting the White House, according to a new CNN/ORC survey.
    The nationwide poll, released Tuesday, shows 63% of Americans say it was a bad move for congressional leadership to extend the invitation without giving President Barack Obama a heads up that it was coming. Only 33% say it was the right thing to do.

  30. You should have seen Republicans act as if Netanyahu was the leader of America. Boehner is the worst speaker of the house there has ever been and Republicans show everyday that they do not know how to govern, they are jokes.
