• Paul Ryan: Obama’s Disrespect ‘Elevated’ Netanyahu

    Just moments before Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was scheduled to address a joint secession of Congress about the dangers his country faces, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan weighed in on Obama’s behavior toward Israel’s leader.

    “The president elevated this” speech, Ryan said this morning on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom. “I think the president made a huge mistake by dissing the prime minister of Israel, one of our greatest allies, by having Democrats boycott this.”

    “What he’s done is elevated the critique of his foreign policy to a level that people are now paying attention to his criticism. So I think the president made a huge mistake here,” Ryan said.

    So Obama’s actions have had unintended consequences? Why that never happens.

    Ryan’s comments come just as news breaks about Iranian negotiators rejecting Obama’s plan that they halt all nuclear activity for at least 10 years.

    Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech today before Congress is in protest to Obama’s now-backfired deal.

    “We should be welcoming the prime minister of Israel here, no matter whether you’re going to be criticized for your foreign policy or not,” Ryan added. “I think the president made a huge mistake by making this a big show. It elevates the critique of his foreign policy which many of us have been making, Now, more people will hear that.”
