John Boehner Destroyed By Forbes In Scathing Smack Down – A Legacy Of Disgrace

The noted conservative website Forbes.com published a scathing indictment of Speaker John Boehner in the wake of the growing scandal surrounding his invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to speak before Congress.

The article, entitled Bibi Netanyahu — aka ‘The Republican Senator From Israel’ — May Have Made A Fatal Political Mistake offers an in-depth analysis of fallout in Israel over the controversy, predicting the Netanyahu may very well lose his long-standing control of Israel as a result of the fallout from his diplomatic FUBAR.


The article begins by accusing Speaker Boehner of attempting “to create two conflicting foreign policies for the United States—one pursued by the President and the other pursued by the Congress.”

After explaining concerns for Netanyahu at home and the possibility that “Netanyahu’s desire to interfere with American policy while seeking to bolster his re-election campaign, may turn out to be the very political screw-up that will allow the joint ticket forged by the Labor-Hatnuah political parties to bring an end to Netanyahu’s long reign atop the Israeli government,” the article goes on to consider Boehner’s actions.

I have no idea, my memories are mixed up.

It's likely I became aware of him as an entertainer at
the same time the song came out. It seemed to me an
extraordinary time and for the first time I was envious of
the beautiful black people. Suddenly there were so many
celebratory expressions of African heritage, hair, colors,
being black, being proud.

In contrast I was descended from primarily pasty white and
emotionally repressed Europeans. There was no color, only
beige and gray. "Say it loud, I'm beige and I'm proud" just
didn't ring.

Fortunately it was the sixties, when even white people
became colorful.
