Hypocrite Pelosi slams Congress invitation to Netanyahu; Obama won’t meet Israeli PM

Nancy Pelosi just gave one of the most ironic statements of her career.

Speaking at her weekly briefing Thursday, the House minority leader hammered House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, for inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak next month to a joint session of Congress.

“It’s hubris to say, ‘I rule, I’ll decide,’” she said.

Does that sound familiar?

The former House speaker whose arrogance is legendary, the woman who rammed Obamacare down the nation’s throat without a single Republican vote in support is accusing Republicans of “hubris?”

And where has the California congresswoman been for the for the past four years of the Barack “pen and phone” Obama presidency?

The administration is angry because it claims Boehner broke protocol by not informing the White House prior to issuing the invitation — and we all know what a stickler the president is for following protocol and tradition.

Boehner said the invitation to Netanyahu was not meant as a slight.

“There is a serious threat that exists in the world and the president, last night, kind of papered over it,” Boehner said Wednesday. “There needs to be a more serious conversation in America about how serious the threat is from radical Islamic jihadists and the threat posed by Iran.”

Meanwhile the invitation is big news in Israel, where Israel Hayom said it sends a clear message that Congress backs Israel even if Obama doesn’t.

The news organization also predicted Obama would meet with Netanyahu during the visit as shunning him “would send a very bad message.”

Unfortunately, Hayom was wrong in assuming his highness would do what’s in the best interest of both the United States and Israel — rather than what’s in the best interest of his ego.

“As a matter of long-standing practice and principle, we do not see heads of state or candidates in close proximity to their elections, so as to avoid the appearance of influencing a democratic election in a foreign country,” Bernadette Meehan, National Security Council spokeswoman, said in a statement.

Leave it to the Obama administration to stand on “principle.”

The fact remains that there are two sides in this conflict and while the GOP and some Democrats choose to back Israel, the White House and those like Pelosi seem to be backing both the radical Islamists and an Iran dead set on becoming a nuclear power.
