ABC News: White House ‘Disappointed’ With Netanyahu Victory

Israel is and has been one of America’s most consistent allies. And in the midst of an increasingly dangerous Middle Eastern region, it was being reported that the Jewish state might come close to losing its fiercest leader.

However, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has easily defeated two liberal candidates, Yitzhak Herzog and Tzipi Livni, securing his fourth term as Israel’s head of state.

Netanyahu didn’t waste time to unite his country, pledging to form a new government.

“Our country’s everyday reality doesn’t give us the luxury for delay,” Netanyahu said in a statement.

“The citizens of Israel rightfully expect that we will act quickly and responsibly to establish a leadership that will work for them in areas of defense, the economy and society just as we promised in this campaign—and just like we will now set ourselves towards doing,” he added.

But what is turning out to be a good day for Netanyahu, is apparently a day full of butt hurt for Obama.

“This is a stunning victory for Netanyahu–a landslide victory. . . You can be sure there’s a lot of disappointment over at the White House this morning, realizing they have to try to work with Netanyahu for another two years,” ABC news reports. (Video above).

“This is a tough break for President Obama,” said CBS corespondent Berry Petersen. Because “Netanyahu wants to torpedo the American-led effort at an Iranian nuclear weapons deal.”

CNN host John Berman seemed to be reading the same writing on the walls.

“To me this feels like the shellacking that the Obama team received in 2010,” Berman said. “It’s a big deal.”

What I wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall of the West Wing today.
