Netanyahu's Visit - Treason by Republicans?

For Israel's Netanyahu, nuke fight 'sacred duty'

From a story located at: 

My response:

Can you imagine the reaction of Republicans if the stated policy of the elected government of our nation is confronted with back door sabotage by the opposition party in our Congress, with the aid of a foreigner?

Adding insult to injury, a Democratic leader of the House of Representatives invited this foreign dignitary to address the Congress without the permission of the President in the middle of those negotiations. In other words, attempted sabotage.

If the situation were reversed today or in the future, Republicans would be shouting at the top of their lungs. The time to oppose a treaty negotiated by the elected President of the United States is during the ratification process in the Senate. The House of Representatives has nothing to do with the process.

Benjamin Netanyahu has no business interfering with the negotiation of foreign policy by our elected President. This isn't a Republican or Democrat issue. It is an issue of bad manners, sabotage and backstabbing. If the Republican Party had any class, (they don't) they would boycott Netanyahu's speech and censor the Speaker of the House for pulling off such a stupid grandstanding act. Though not illegal, some would say the Speaker committed treason.

Don't hold your breath though. The Republicans will clap and cheer for Netanyahu and conduct news conferences afterwards undermining negotiations designed to prevent another war. Netanyahu and his war mongering Republican allies will get their day in the spotlight but hopefully, a wise and intelligent Barack Obama and the Democrats will prevail.
