Obama meets with Netanyahu

With tensions rising between Israel and Iran, there has been mounting pressure for the President to re-calibrate the US policy on using military force in Iran. During his address to the annual AIPAC conference on Sunday, the President warned against the “loose talk of war” but also declared “there should not be a shred of doubt by now: when the chips are down, I have Israel’s back.” President Obama will have a chance to sit down with Israeli PM Netanyahu later today for a meeting in the Oval Office with discuss the situation in Iran and other issues of mutual concern.

    If we didn't steve the repos would put a spin on it . like he is not working just goofing off. They do that now but can you imagin how bad it would be. Looks like the Pres is busy today. Hope the talks go well. Let's give diplomacy a chance. Tired of war thats for sure.

    The warrior and the goof ball meet... obama did say "I will stand with the muslims" and has stabbed Israel (publically) in the back several times....and just last week Israel said if they had to hit Iran they would not give obama a heads up first...this is just phoney obama face saving...oh, they call it damage control. When you lead you lead when you don't you stamp out fires and point the finger...the little boy stuff...and Israel is not into little boy stuff... this is embarrasing behavior for the persident of the united states of america...horrible!

    They aren't into the "ittle raschals stuff', minus Stymie either; trying to act like you're so concerned with the Jews. They know deep down that gentiles have really never cared one thing for them, unless it was money involved or some 'vital interest'!! Btw, you don't fool me with that 'little BOY stuff' act OK?? Obama is more of a man than most of whinning, crying imps on here! He hadn't been a boy in a long time!
