Does Hillary Clinton Have A Position On The Netanyahu Speech?

Maybe I missed the post somewhere but I can't find a single quote or statement issued outlining her position on Netanyahu's Historic Speech breach.

If someone has a link, please post!

4. Googled.. found crickets from Hillary but on a whim.. found plenty from Howard Dean..

Sample..

Howard Dean calls Netanyahu a 'disaster,' terms his Congress speech 'stupid'

http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/1.643068

Doesn't "trust him.. doesn't think he's served Israel well"

6. It doesn't surprise me the least bit..

 

that you 'found crickets from Hillary' regarding Netanyahu's Congressional speech.

Mostly, if not all Democratic members and leaders have weighed in Bibi's speech even to say they are still undecided.

Her silence can be interpreted as a presidential candidate skirting the issue and not willing to stand by her own convictions or positions one way or another.

I guess the polling numbers haven't been tabulated yet........

10. It's kind of a no-brainer for Dems who want to negotiate Peace options rather than condoning

bibi and boner's huckster presentation by being there.

They're both known liars.. and the only Jewish People bibi speaks for.. are the rwingers.

I would have thought this would be a good opportunity for her to speak out.. guess not.

I know she is being honored by Emily's list tomorrow.

in the middle east soon. I know some here hate to hear that but it is the truth. Her comments should be measured. This is an address to congress. Why use something like this as a political football that could hurt future negotiations. If she does comment is should be very measured.

16. Its not just 'an address to congress'...

 


....a foreign leader denouncing U.S. policy from within the grand hall of American democracy upends nearly two centuries of tradition.

A joint meeting of Congress, gathering senators and representatives together in the House chamber, is a ceremony typically bestowed on one or two friendly foreign leaders per year. It looks a lot like a presidential State of the Union address. The speaker embodies his or her nation; the audience of lawmakers represents all Americans.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=6301127



American voters need to know where their politicians (and in the case, presidential candidate) stands on issues such as this, especially when all party members from both sides have given their positions on the Netanyahu speech. The world community doesn't elect the future American president,......we do!

BTW.....she hasn't even given a very measured statement.......is that the kind of avoidance on issues we should expect from her should she be elected into office?

19. They have all made a statement.....unlike Hillary

 

"...The presidential candidates who are in Congress are all attending the speech, unlike Vice President Joe Biden and some Democratic lawmakers. Those who aren’t in Congress aren’t changing up their schedules to attend as private citizens but say they will watch it on television.

Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of Congress just two weeks before the Israeli election has caused a partisan rift, with the Republicans lawmakers who invited Netanyahu on one side, and the White House and many allied Democrats on the other. Netanyahu, a vocal critic of the ongoing P5+1 Iran nuclear talks, is expected to warn against the emerging agreement.

Meanwhile neither President Obama nor Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with the Israeli leader on his visit to the U.S., as National Security Advisor Susan Rice condemned the visit as “destructive.”

At the Conservative Political Action Conference outside of Washington last week, speaker after speaker criticized the White House approach to Netanyahu.

“We need a leader who understands that when the Prime Minister and leader of our longtime ally asks to come to Congress to share his concerns about Iran, we should show him and his country our respect,” Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said. On Monday, Walker penned an op-ed accused Obama of making the visit a “political football.”

Last month, in a foreign policy address in Chicago, Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush endorsed the Netanyahu address, earning a thank-you tweet from Netanyahu. In an interview with an Israeli newspaper last week, he called Obama’s behavior toward Israel “completely inappropriate.”

Jeb Bush ✔ @JebBush

11:10 AM - 19 Feb 2015


And over the weekend, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie called Netanyahu’s treatment a “national disgrace.”

Aides to Walker, Bush, Christie, and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum said their bosses have out-of-town commitments and cannot attend the address, but will watch Netanyahu’s remarks on television. Aides to other candidates not currently serving in Congress did not respond to a request for comment about their bosses’ plans.

“I will be there in the front row,” South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee on Sunday. Sens. Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, who are also likely running for president, will also attend.

Attendance at the speech became a partisan lightning rod as Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is set to receive an award from EMILY’s List Tuesday night in Washington, came under attack this weekend in an ad from the conservative Emergency Committee For Israel questioning her commitment to the American ally.

“Does she support the boycotters, or is she too afraid to stand up to them?” the ad states, asking whether she will attend. Clinton’s plan for the speech are not yet clear.

Let them hang themselves. Once again Hillary is showing she is the grown up. Now I get it a little more. One line in there is specially funny seeing as though it is a blatant lie. Love it. Thanks.

14. Yes..and like a good politician she may not spout off something...

She actually is a lot like Obama in one way. Avoid openly saying too much about issues where the country is divided until a majority appears.

Everyone here keeps yearning for a firebrand, but it's hard to get elected if you talk too much.

The longer she keeps her mouth closed, the better her chances in the election.

22. Fight over Netanyahu and Iran could split Democrats

 

Consider: If the Obama administration and other world powers do reach a deal with Iran, Hillary Clinton — the all-but-certain Democratic nominee — will presumably have to take a clear position on it.

In an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg last August, Clinton said that Israel’s position in opposition to any Iranian enrichment capacity is “not an unrealistic position,” seemingly laying down a harder line than the Obama administration. However, Clinton had previously claimed some enrichment is acceptable under certain circumstances, and last month she came out against legislation to impose new sanctions on Iran, which the administration fears could scuttle the nuclear talks.

The bottom line is that a deal with Iran would likely exert pressure on her to firm up her position. While it seems likely Clinton would back any such deal, any hedging is likely to provoke anger on the left.

Indeed, in another piece of Iran-related news, two major progressive groups — MoveOn and CREDO Action — are vowing a campaign against any Democrats who undermine a nuclear deal with Iran. The heads of the two groups write:


"....If these talks fail because of unwarranted congressional meddling, Democrats who side with Republicans will be at fault. And progressive activists will hold them accountable for the rest of their careers in politics. The United States is facing a historic opportunity to make the region and the world more secure without resorting to war. We agree with our allies, negotiating partners and scores of national security experts: Congress should hold its fire and let diplomacy work..."

http://www.rollcall.com/news/democrats_dont_side_with_republicans_on_iran_commentary-240443-1.html


Democratic base voters also appear to side with the administration on this matter. Wherever Clinton ends up coming out on such a deal, you could easily see some Congressional Democrats either supporting new sanctions legislation — which could undermine the deal’s prospects — or coming out against the deal itself, particularly if Netanyahu’s speech is portrayed in the media as a huge success. Which is to say that beyond today’s media spectacle loom the prospect of serious divisions among Democrats.
