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.

    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.

  • MrGoodWench

    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.

  • jim m

    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.

    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!!

    Why would Netanyahu waste his breath talking to Obama, the Muslim who hates Israel and America? The truth is, Obama is the one being snubbed. The Liberal Press will always cover his sissy ass to make him appear to be something he is not.

    Obama will be the ruler for the rest of everyone’s life not because of Romney’s incompetance ,

    You don’t like America’s leaders and you have contempt for “this country’s population”. We used to have a saying back in the late 60’s early 70’s.

    America is the best country on the planet and Odinga wants to fundamentally transform it .
    Transform it into what ? A moocher’s paradise like Sweden ?
    An islamic feudalistic sheikhdom like Saudi Arabia ?
    A marxist utopia like North Korea ?
    An African economic giant like Zimbabwe ?
    Those places already exist .
    Why doesn’t HE go find himself a “better” place and leave us the hell alone ???

    A phone interaction gives Obama the insulation he needs from his woeful performance in one on one conversations with any person of greater substance – going all the way back to Joe the Plumber: he doesn’t have to have a face to face interaction and he can break contact by just hanging up.

    Your contempt for America extends far beyond Obama. When you talk about “this country’s population which so desperately wanted free stuff that they installed a narcissistic dictatorial muslim with suspicious pedigree and lineage to rule this country.” you clearly have no respect for your fellow Americans.

    Why live in a country populated with people you despise? Go somewhere else. Which country has a population you can respect? This is America, Pal. Love it or leave it!!!

    As for Obamas, they are so awesome that every 3rd world country will be dying to have them as their monarchs. They don’t love it here anyway, so they can leave .

    The problem is you. You are the one who hates your fellow American. Look how you talk about about us. When I look at my fellow Americans, I don’t see a bunch of parasites. You do. You sound like a real elitist.

    Americans aren’t perfect. We have a few slackers. But overall Americans are the hardest working people on the planet.

    Obama opted for doing what he does best—campaigning. His choosing not to meet with Netanyahu was another example of him being a failure as our president. In the weeks ahead, Obama’s record will be on full review and combined with his cover up of the killings in Libya, I think he will be voted out of office. President Romney. Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

Pray tell…just what IS there to respect about a “leader” who promotes lies, unrest, cheating, and strangulation to our very way of life? Why the hell do we need ZARS?? Why can’t we drink big gulps any longer, or let our kids sell lemonade? Not to mention this little mistake of “misleading” we, the American people, over this little mishap of 4 dead people, not to mention fast & furious?

    Suuuure, like Nancy Pelosi, and John F’n Kerry and Ted Kennedy? These are all prominent Democrats who have engaged in very independent foreign policy actions that were distinct from, and unhelpful to, a sitting president.

    It is disgraceful. The president is thinking only of himself, not what his job instructs him to do. He claims to support Israel but refuses to speak to their leader because of his “schedule”. Mr. President, this is your JOB, this is what we PAY you to do! We pay you to deal with foreign leaders and handle matters of national importance. If you don’t like the pressure of world politics, if you are not a big enough man that you can’t stand when another leader corrects you in public, then you obviously are the WRONG MAN in the White House! You are putting personal desires ahead of your work!
