Benjamin Netanyahu gave his incredible speech in front of Congress, and he took immediate aim on the shameful plan Obama is privately working on with Iran. For those of you who are too young to remember President Ronald Reagan, this is what he sounded like:
The nuclear deal now being negotiated between Iran, the United States and its allies “doesn’t block Iran’s path to the bomb; it paves Iran’s path to the bomb,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Congress Tuesday.
“I know that my speech has been the subject of much controversy. I deeply regret that some perceive my being here as political. That has never been my intention,” Netanyahu said at the beginning of his 40-minute address to a packed House chamber. “I know that no matter which side of the aisle you sit, you stand with Israel.”

And here is where he REALLY took the gloves off:
"We've been told no deal is better than a bad deal. Well … this is a very bad deal. We're better off without it." #NetanyahuSpeech

So where was Barack Obama during this historic moment in front of Congress? He’s too busy… or something:
In an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday, Obama White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett offered some reaction to the upcoming address to a joint session of Congress by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later in the day.
Jarrett insisted President Barack Obama remains committed to Israel’s security and preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
“As the president said yesterday, Mika, the speech has become a bit of a distraction,” Jarrett said. What’s important to keep in mind is the fundamental fact that the United States is Israel’s staunchest ally. The president is committed to the safety and security of Israel. We share a common goal of ensuring that Iran does not develop nuclear weapons. We may disagree about the tactics of how to get there, but the important thing is that that’s our goal and that’s where we keep our focus.”
Don’t you wish America had a President who spoke so forcefully against evil in the world? Please leave us a comment and tell us what you think.
