National security adviser Susan Rice denounced Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming address to a joint meeting of Congress, calling it “destructive” to the relationship between the United States and Israel.
Rice, appearing on “Charlie Rose,” said that Netanyahu’s decision to accept the invitation of House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) to offer critical views of a potential nuclear deal with Iran shortly before the Israeli elections has “injected a degree of partisanship, which is not only unfortunate. I think it’s destructive of the fabric of the relationship.” Netanyahu is scheduled to speak March 3; the Israeli elections are March 17.
Which leads to verse 29 of the Obama Impeachment song:
Netanyahu’s speech destruct
While ISIS peacefully abduct
And Iran the Bomb construct
My absolute power all corrupt.

Greta van Susteren leveled this fiery salvo in response to Susan Rice’s comments:
“Has President Obama’s Nation Security Adviser Susan Rice gone off the deep end? What kool aid is SHE drinking?
Rice, who as you know ridiculously went around to the 5 Sunday shows claiming Benghazi was caused by a video, just claimed to CBS Charlie Rose that Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to Congress next week is “destructive” to the relationship between the US and Israel. Really? PM Netanyahu is the destructive one to the relationship?
Ah…maybe she ought to look at her boss’ conduct if she wants to talk ‘destructive’ to the relationship.
1/ Remember when her boss, President Obama, got caught on a hot mike ‘trash talking’ PM Netanyahu with then French President Sarkozy? Does she not think THAT was destructive to the relationship? Insulting another world leader like that?
or how about this?
2/ When the Jewish deli got hit by terrorism in Paris in January, and PM Netanyahu and all those world leaders showed up in solidarity — where was President Obama? A no show! Does she think THAT was not destructive to the relationship? A no show for that terrorism attack on a Jewish deli?
or how about this?
3/ In October an Administration official called PM Netanyahu in a magazine article “chicken shit” and “a coward.” Does she not think THAT was destructive to the relationship?
And how about the fact that President Obama did not followup with an apology to PM Netanyahu on behalf of his Administration? Does she not think THAT was destructive to the relationship?
And by the way, was SHE the “Administration official” who called PM Netanyahu ‘coward’ and ‘chicken shit?’
and want more?
how about this?
4/ PM Netanyahu is desperately trying to protect his country from Iran getting a nuclear weapon….and is speaking to Americans via Congress..
– a/ Democrats are going to be a ‘no show’ to insult him and have already made that known….and
-b/ the VP, as President of the Senate says he is not showing up…and
-c/ President Obama won’t find 5 minutes to meet with the Prime Minister when he is here in DC.
Does she think THAT might be destructive to the relationship?
The is all because the White House is upset because Speaker Boehner did not tell them first before inviting PM Netanyahu. Do you know how insane that is to be upset about ‘manners’ and ‘protocol’ when the topic is NUCLEAR WEAPONS?
What kool aid is Susan Rice drinking?”
