Obama Reportedly Had No Time to Meet Netanyahu – But Took the Afternoon Off… He’ll Call Him Tomorrow

Barack Obama refused to meet the Israeli leader in person this week while he was visiting the US.
He had a campaign event and then took the afternoon off.

Obama was pushing “economic patriotism” today in Virginia Beach. (Yahoo)

He’ll call Netanyahu tomorrow.
The Daily Mail reported:

President Barack Obama is due to speak to Benjamin Netanyahu by telephone on Friday – a day after deputing Hillary Clinton to stand in for him by meeting the Israeli premier in New York.

Jay Carney, Obama’s press secretary, confirmed that the two leaders would speak as Netanyahu prepared to address the United Nations in New York. Obama left the U.N. before he arrived and is spending most of Thursday campaigning in Virginia.

The White House rejected an Israeli request for Netanyahu to meet Obama, either at the U.N. or in Washington – a sign of the icy relationship between the two men.

Barack Obama has at least four fundraisers to attend.
Obama had at least one fundraiser today in Virginia…
And then he took the afternoon off.

Tomorrow Barack Obama has at least three more fundraisers to attend in Washington.

    DISGRACEFUL REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER

    One hour of campaigning and a half hour of briefing — I hope he isn’t overworked.

    Good. Israel would cease to exist without America’s support. Whatever you think about Obama, he is the President of The United States of America. Netanyahu needs to show more respect.

    Israel wants us to spend our blood and treasure to attack Iran. We’ve been at war in the Middle East for more than a decade. We are broke. I’m not sure that’s the best use of our money right now.

    Dear President Netanyahu,

    There are millions of Americans of all faiths and backgrounds who support you and the truth you are saying.

    We have a dangerous man in the White House so please don’t think we are all idiots.

    That 30 mins of Presidential Daily Briefing,
    is a weasly term for —
    equipping Obama with a pair of fresh briefs after the morning servicing by Reggie Love/Chris Mathews/Flavor of the day ,
    while he chooms to some gansta rap ,
    followed by dressing him up in pants treated with fire-retardant.

    This is a deliberate snub, and doubly so. Not only does obama snub Netenyahu by refusing to speak with him, but he then declares that he will only have time if Netanyahu takes the call on his sabbath. In Israel Friday is the sabbath day and is considered the weekend. obama knows this (or ought to) and this is done as a deliberate affront to our Jewish allies.

    Hey Netanyahu, As Americans, we support our president more than we support foreign leaders. Don’t call us, we’ll call you.

    The Dixie Chicks disrespected and made fun of our President while overseas. What they did was wrong. Politics stops at the water’s edge. Most Americans understand that.

    OT..

    GOP Minority Leader McConnell Ignores Akin in His
    Own Hometown, Seems to Be Supporting the Democrat

    he, along with several other Congressional Oscar
    winners ie: Boehner, are not on America’s side.. :-(

    besides, isn’t he older than the Ayatollah?? /s/

    Conservative PAC backs Todd Akin in Missouri

    Schlafly’s call to action on Akin race

    [Phyllis Schlafly, founder of Eagle Forum and one of the most influential conservative leaders in American for decades, told WND today that prospect has prompted her to urge citizens to make phone calls in support of U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, who is challenging incumbent Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill for a pivotal U.S. Senate seat in Missouri

    [..]

    Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., and former Sen. Rick Santorum expressed a desire to help Akin just this week. They’re the latest to stand by Akin’s side since he ran headlong into a media firestorm when he used the phrase “legitimate rape” as an awkward synonym for forcible rape.

    [..]

    “I regret to say that Congressman Akin has been subjected to disgraceful treatment at the hands of the GOP political bosses,” Dobson said. “They have withheld funds for his campaign, even though he won the GOP primary for the Senate seat. Karl Rove and Haley Barbour have said things about his character that are untrue. Their vicious opposition could get his Democratic opponent elected in his stead. That is curious since an Akin win could give the Senate majority to the Republicans.”]

    damn, i cannot stand ROVE, gah!!

    Not sure where you are going with your comments. Are you looking for an excuse to support a foreign leader over the U.S. President? You might want to look for better examples than idiots like the Dixie Chicks and the Black Caucus. Those people are fools.

    Hey, it ALL about HIM! Nothing else matters, nothing else is relevant. Odumbo IS the center of his own deliusional universe

    Hey Monkey – do you realize has threatened the US time and time again, has killed our soldiers and has attempted to murder the Saudi ambassador in Washington DC. Maybe our campaigner in chief should try to do his day job once in a while.

    True, and these idiots like the Dixie Chicks and the Black Caucus support the current U.S. president , so I’d rather support someone who atleast is not an enemy of my country .
