Master of the cheap shot, petulant to the end, our ever-ungracious President Barack Obama refused to congratulate Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu on his election victory.
His spokesman said:
We want to congratulate the Israeli people for the democratic process for the election that they just engaged in with all the parties that engaged in that election. As you know now, the hard work of coalition building begins. Sometimes that takes a couple of weeks. And we're going to give space to the formation of that coalition government and we're not going to weigh in one way or another except to say that the United States and Israel have a historic and close relationship and that will continue going forward.
Does anyone outside of the New York Times believe that the problem between Obama and Netanyahu involves anything other than President Obama’s inability to behave like an adult?
To be fair, the same New York Times reported a couple of weeks ago that Obama has failed to establish good relationships, both with foreign leaders and with Congressional Republicans.
