    For God's sake, learn how to spell the prime minister's name. It is spelled correctly in the quotation from the White House.

    Bibi Netanyahu is coming to the USA a day before the Super Tuesday contests for the Republican nomination. It's just coincidental, right?

    I certainly hope he's found his manners. The last time he was here I thought he was quite disrespectful to our president.
