    Forbes Smackdown

    Boehner is getting more unpopular by the minute.

    John Boehner Destroyed By Forbes In Scathing Smack Down - A Legacy Of Disgrace

    John Boehner Destroyed By Forbes In Scathing Smack Down – A Legacy Of Disgrace

    The noted conservative website Forbes.com published a scathing indictment of Speaker John Boehner in the wake of the growing scandal surrounding his invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to speak before Congress.

    The article, entitled Bibi Netanyahu — aka ‘The Republican Senator From Israel’ — May Have Made A Fatal Political Mistake offers an in-depth analysis of fallout in Israel over the controversy, predicting the Netanyahu may very well lose his long-standing control of Israel as a result of the fallout from his diplomatic FUBAR.


    The article begins by accusing Speaker Boehner of attempting “to create two conflicting foreign policies for the United States—one pursued by the President and the other pursued by the Congress.”

    After explaining concerns for Netanyahu at home and the possibility that “Netanyahu’s desire to interfere with American policy while seeking to bolster his re-election campaign, may turn out to be the very political screw-up that will allow the joint ticket forged by the Labor-Hatnuah political parties to bring an end to Netanyahu’s long reign atop the Israeli government,” the article goes on to consider Boehner’s actions.

    I hate Boehner, but love the invite to speak before congress. Just because it tweaked Obama to be served a dose of his own medicine.

    reckon I would have to ask the all important question - what part of our government has the final say as to foreign policy per the constitution?

    What part has the final say in writing laws? Disregard breeds disregard. Tit for tat. Obama should sue. Lol.

    You might want to study a little more. Foreign Policy goes to the President. He has to ask Congress to declare war and provide money, but the decisions belong to him. Netanyahu and Boehner both over stepped.

    thanks - precisely my point in asking the question. as you know, I don't even feel those decisions should be made at that level.

    We do have established laws. Not what ever you wish them to be in your pique of the moment. This Country does not work that way.

    Wouldn't the presidents signature on a bill be the final say?
