Obama Congratulates Netanyahu… A Week After Israeli PM Wins Election

Home - by - January 30, 2013 - 14:00 America/New_York - 20 Comments

WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — President Barack Obama took nearly a week to congratulate Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for narrowly winning the election.

Obama spoke to Netanyahu on the phone Monday from the White House about looking forward to working with the next Israeli government.

The president “reiterated his commitment to the deep and enduring bonds between the United States and Israel, and pledged to work closely with Israel on our shared agenda for peace and security in the Middle East,” a White House statement read.

The phone call came after comments made by a former U.S. ambassador to Israel claiming that Obama and Netanyahu have “bad chemistry.”

    If I were Bengi, first order of business would be to take out those 200 Abrams and the 20 F16′s that Obama sent to Egypt.

    And let me be the one to congratulate Obama on being a total Asshat.

    Wish Bibi was our president instead of this little commie punk.

    Uncle Kink, I’ve been wishing that since I first heard a speech by Bibi long before he became the PM.

    I wonder what kind of “pleasantries” they exchanged first?

    “F**k you Bibi”
    “F**k you back Brack”
    “I hear you won the election, that’s a shame, I mean congratulations.”
    “I hear you stole yours, that’s a shame.”
    “F**k you Bibi, I just sent four F-16′s to your enemies.”
    “F**k you Brack, I’ve got photos from Man’s Country on their way to Fox News. Have a nice day.”
    “F**k you.”

    I’m fairly certain that Netanyahu wasn’t just sitting next to the phone fidgeting and rubbing the tears from his eyes, muttering “Will he call? Will he?” …

    Obama spoke to Netanyahu on the phone Monday from the White House about looking forward to working with the next Israeli government.

    As usual, the liberal press misinterpreted what Barry said. What he meant was that he looks forward to working with the Israeli government that comes after Netanyahu.
