Obama Will Not Meet with Netanyahu During Trip to Washington

President Barack Obama will not meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he travels to Washington in March, the White House said Thursday, one day after being caught off-guard by Republicans' invitation for the Israeli leader to address a joint session of Congress.

Spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said that in keeping with "long-standing practice and principle," the president does not meet with heads of state or candidates in close proximity to their elections.

"Accordingly, the president will not be meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu because of the proximity to the Israeli election, which is just two weeks after his planned address to the U.S. Congress," Meehan said.

Netanyahu is scheduled to speak to Congress on March 3 and will push for additional sanctions on Iran. He was initially scheduled to address lawmakers in February, but the date was changed so that it could coincide with Netanyahu's trip to Washington to address an annual conference held by AIPAC, the pro-Israel lobby group, in early March.






The invitation was a coordinated effort by House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., with staff discussions beginning last year, according to a senior Republican aide, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to publicly discuss the private talks.

That's nice. It just means that when Obama vetoes the sanctions bill, he'll be sure to send Bi bi a copy. Trashing Netanyahu in front of the Iranian's will just give Obama more clout to broker a deal. Which will make Bi bi look even more impotent in the eyes of the Arab world.

(smile) Any deal Obambi makes with Iran :

A.) Will never be ratified because Ira cannot be trusted
B.) Will make Obambi infamous for his stupidity if it WERE ratified.

This will backfire on the Republicans and Netanyahu. If Iran agrees to a deal, it will put the Republicans in the position of having to either vote for the best interest of it's own countries foreign policy or Netanyahu's.

Intelligent folks are willing to actually LOOK at the Iranians (not the citizens but their leaders) and understand that you cannot make any deals with the Devil.

Apparently the Mossad knows where Bi Bi is on it. And apparently they aren't backing him.

How fucking stupid are the Republicans going to end up looking if they hurt a deal the Israeli intelligence agency is working with the President on?

no, it means he's pouting like a child and he thinks snubbing Netanyahu will bother him.
