SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS DESTROYS BOEHNER AND NETANYAHU ATTEMPTED COUP ON CNN
“Bernie Sanders Goes On CNN and Destroys Boehner and Netanyahu For Undermining Obama” by Jason Easley Feb 10, 2015 Senator Sanders BOYCOTTS Netanyahu speech
“A President Of The United States, whether that person is a Democrat or a Republican leads us in foreign policy, and when you have a situation in the Middle East where the politics and the dangers are so volatile, the idea that the Speaker of the House would invite Mr. Netanyahu to Congress without consulting President Obama is I think a very very bad idea.”
— Senator Sanders
FACT: WRONG = To stage a FOREIGNER’S speech before a joint session of Congress as part of a reelection campaign. That’s wrong anywhere in the world = “it is bad precedent to invite the leader of a foreign country to come before a joint session of Congress to attack the president’s position on a very sensitive issue.”
Netanyahu doesn’t have the right to inject himself into an American political discussion as a foreign speaker before a joint session of Congress to criticize the President Of The United States.
CNN = Tried to compare Netanyahu’s speech to Congress to President Obama’s Berlin speech months before the 2008 election
Sen. Sanders = “Several months is different than several weeks”
Sen Sanders = “Obama and our allies are trying to…prevent a war with Iran.
FACT: NETANYAHU HAS NO PLACE INSIDE USA CONGRESS AND GOVERNMENT DECISION-MAKING
Senator Sanders = “I think what Speaker Boehner has done is very much politicized the situation in a way that is unprecedented….The point is the President Of The United States, and again it doesn’t matter to me whether it’s a Democrat or a Republican, leads foreign policy, and to invite that Prime Minister, that foreign leader, without consulting the president is a horrible move.” + IT VIOLATES USA LAWS!
Sen. Sanders Summary: It “was wrong for Boehner and Netanyahu to politicize this process. None of this should sit well with the American people. The fact that Boehner and Netanyahu are conspiring to undermine a sitting president on foreign policy, and the fact that a foreign leader is trying to influence American foreign policy are very troubling.”
Sen. Sanders: “What Republicans are doing is disloyal to their country” = Callous partisan politics on national television.
FACT: Opposition to Netanyahu’s speech GROWS LOUDER AND LOUDER
FACT: MASS MURDERERS OF CHILDREN = HAS NO PLACE IN USA OR ANYWHERE = EXCEPT PRISON
