Pouty Pelosi says she was 'almost in tears,' Obama says no alternatives
House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement claiming to have been 'almost in tears
' during Prime Minister Netanyahu's address to a joint session of Congress, while President Hussein Obama, who supposedly believes that no deal is better than a bad deal, claims there is no choice
but to sign a bad deal. First Pelosi.
“The unbreakable bonds between the United States and Israel are
rooted in our shared values, our common ideals and mutual interests.
Ours is a deep and abiding friendship that will always reach beyond
party. Americans stand shoulder to shoulder with the Israeli people.
The state of Israel stands as the greatest political achievement of the
20th century, and the United States will always have an unshakable
commitment to Israel’s security.
“That is why, as one who values the U.S. – Israel relationship, and
loves Israel, I was near tears throughout the Prime Minister’s speech –
saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States as part
of the P5 +1 nations, and saddened by the condescension toward our
knowledge of the threat posed by Iran and our broader commitment to
preventing nuclear proliferation.
“Today, Prime Minister Netanyahu reiterated something we all agree
upon: a nuclear armed Iran is unacceptable to both our countries. We
have all said that a bad deal is worse than no deal, and stopping the
spread of nuclear weapons is the bedrock of our foreign policy and
national security. As President Obama has said consistently, all
options are on the table for preventing a nuclear-armed Iran.”
They are? Apparently she forgot to check that with President Reefer.
President Barack Obama says Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (neh-ten-YAH'-hoo) didn't offer any "viable alternatives" to the nuclear negotiations with Iran during his speech to Congress.
Obama says he read a transcript of Netanyahu's speech Tuesday. He says "there was nothing new" in the speech.
Obama says Netanyahu made almost the same speech when he warned against
the interim deal reached with Iran. Obama says that deal has resulted in
a freeze and rolling back of Iran's nuclear program.
Obama says Netanyahu's alternative to the talks amounts to no deal at
all. He says that would lead Iran to redouble efforts to build a nuclear
In his speech, Netanyahu said the deal would all but guarantee that Iran gets nuclear weapons.
'Nothing new' other than the interruptions to applaud. 'All options are on the table' but 'no deal at all' isn't an option? Were these two clowns listening? Pathetic.
