Forbes Tears Boehner, Netanyahu Apart In A Scathing Column, Says GOP Cannot “Think Beyond Their Distaste For This President”

Rick Ungar should get a medal for his words against the treasonous John Boehner and his war-hungry, propaganda pushing friend Benjamin Netanyahu.

In his latest article,”Bibi Netanyahu — aka ‘The Republican Senator From Israel’ — May Have Made A Fatal Political Mistake,” Ungar unleashes a full force of anger, disgust, bewilderment and utter confusion over the Speaker’s undermining of President Obama and his foreign policy. In what Ungar describes as a “political screw-up,” Speaker Boehner and Bibi seek to undermine current foreign policy in an effort to save Netanyahu’s reign in the Israeli Knesset.

A power-hungry Republican trying to save a war-hawk? I’m shocked.

After quickly digesting what’s at stake for Netanyahu and the sneaky way his address to Congress came to be, Ungar lambasted both Bibi and Boehner:

“For the moment, suffice it to say that using the Israeli Prime Minister in an attempt to embarrass the President of the United States is beyond shameful.

I get that the Speaker doesn’t like the President or his policies. I get that many readers of this piece will have snarky responses about how this President already embarrasses himself and our nation, etc., etc., etc.

But what neither the Speaker, nor those who cannot manage to think beyond their distaste for this president, understand is the truly unprecedented step Boehner has taken by joining with the leader of a foreign nation against his own president.”

Ungar then touches on the respect and dignity that the office of the president holds, something Speaker Boehner doesn’t mind trashing:

“Presidents come and go. However, respect for the office of the presidency, particularly on the part of the man who is second in the line of succession to the presidency, should not.

Through his actions, Boehner may have scored some points for his party and for his preferred policy option vis-à-vis the Iranian nuclear negotiations. But in the process, the Speaker of the American House of Representatives has succeeded in embarrassing the Office of the President.

Considering that Speaker Boehner has failed to accomplish anything of note during his Speakership, I can only wonder how it must feel to have his legacy be his effort to disgrace the American President in the effort to bolster the political chances of a foreign leader.”

Wrapping up, Ungar takes a swing at every Republican who supports this offensive, treasonous action (hint: it doesn’t make you look patriotic):

“Seeking to damage any American President by helping a foreign leader embarrass our own leader can never be considered something that is best for the nation. And that is simply the truth no matter what your political persuasion or your feelings about the current occupant of the Oval Office.”

Thank you, Rick Ungar, for saying what every American should say. Regardless of politics, Boehner has stained the reputation, the dignity of the office of the president, and America’s diplomatic relations abroad.

I’ll add one thing Ungar didn’t say: every Democrat in Congress should boycott the speech of the war-hungry Netanyahu and hold Speaker Boehner accountable.
