When you're in the White house, it seems that telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth not only hurts, it makes you howl in pretend pain

Longstanding querulous charges from the ever savvy peanut gallery that the U.S. Congress, the Senate, and all life at the White House is nothing but an ongoing soap opera, can now be taken literally.

According to Breaking Israel News, “the White House fabricated the spat with Netanyahu and knew of the Congress Invite all along”.

We can hear the resounding cries “Told ya’! and “We knew it!” emanating from office water coolers, barber’s chairs and bars all over the land.

All staged Obama hissy fits portraying him in full tantrum all because the more heroic Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, at the invitation of House Speaker John Boehner, would address Congress on Iran in March, is one shameless carny act.

“After several weeks of complaining and snubbing by the Obama administration over Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress, turns out the White House has been lying all along. (Breaking Israel News, Feb. 8, 2015)

“Upon the announcement of the prime minister’s address to a joint session of Congress at the invitation of House Speaker John Boehner, the White House complained that it was a breach of protocol and diplomatic rules to accept the invitation without first notifying the White House.

“Senior Obama officials were so angered by Netanyahu’s acceptance to address Congress, they charged that the Israeli leader “spat” in Obama’s face and could therefore not be trusted.

“In a surprising correction issued by the New York Times, who was one of the first news outlets to break the story, it appears that the administration had been informed well in advance of the invitation before Netanyahu accepted it.

“The correction, which was added on January 30 in the online version of the article only, stated:

“Correction: An earlier version of this article misstated when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel accepted Speaker John A. Boehner’s invitation to address Congress. He accepted after the administration had been informed of the invitation, not before.

“The correction, which was added on January 30 in the online version of the article only, stated:

“Correction: An earlier version of this article misstated when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel accepted Speaker John A. Boehner’s invitation to address Congress. He accepted after the administration had been informed of the invitation, not before.”

When you’re in the White house, it seems that telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth not only hurts, it makes you howl in pretend pain.

“Despite what the White House has been saying, officials were in no way blindsided by Netanyahu’s invitation to speak to Congress. (Breaking Israel News)

“Further compounding this fact, a recent report by Israel’s Channel 10 news reported on Friday that Netanyahu genuinely believed the invitation was a bipartisan effort to address the issue of a nuclear Iran.

“According to the report, the prime minister “didn’t know” that the invitation did not have the blessing of the White House, even though they had already been notified of the invitation.

“Netanyahu is attempting to do some damage control with the White House, trying “to soften” the Obama administrations anger and those of many Democrats, the report stated.

“The report added that some 40 Democratic lawmakers are expected to boycott the speech and that the prime minister is apprehensive about a “second wave” of legislators joining the boycott as well. Vice President Joe Biden has confirmed that he will not be attending the speech.

“Deputy Foreign Minister Tzachi Hanegbi told 102 FM Tel Aviv Radio that Netanyahu “hoped and believed” that the invitation was “bi-partisan, as the invite letter said ‚Äì ‘a bi-partisan initiative’ ‚Äì but because of the tensions between Congress and the administration, and between Republicans and Democrats, a problem erupted.”

“On Thursday, Netanyahu stated that he would go ahead with the speech, saying it was “my obligation as the prime minister of Israel to speak out against the danger of a nuclear agreement with Iran, and to do everything I can to prevent it.”

The Dems out-lie ‘lyin’ Brian Williams any day of the week. NBC’s anchor has retreated from the arena, the smell of his scorched peacock feathers still befouling the air. But deceitful Dems have been getting away with their lies for proverbial donkey years.

Speaking of Dem-obliging donkeys riding the dusty roads along the way as Republicans, how is it that Boehner, for all of his braying, has never alerted an unsuspecting public that the White House had fabricated the entire spit-in-the-face spat that never existed?

Now we all know how Boehner gets away with all his boo-hooing.

Daytime favourites of the coach potatoes, ‘The Young and the Restless’, ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ got nothing on the White House gang seething at the seams.

Their ongoing soap operas should be called ‘The Not So Young and Dangerously Restless’ and ‘The Shockingly Bold and Botoxed Beautiful’.

The phony 40 Democratic lawmakers expected to boycott the speech and a suspected “second wave” of legislators in the making are still out on stage left pretending bad boy Netanyahu is spitting in the boss’ innocent face.

Even amid their trumped up outrage, they’re the bit players compared to ‘The Not So Young and Dangerously Restless’ stars Johnny-Boo-Hoo Boehner and his sidekick screech Nancy Pelosi.

Now that the big lie has come out via a New York Times back-page “correction”; now that lyin’ Brian is off the stage for the next six months, the best thing the audience of White House operas can do is bring the curtain down on them.
