Boehner: Obama’s ‘Animosity’ Toward Netanyahu Is ‘Reprehensible

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said the Obama administration’s obvious “animosity,” towards Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s  is “reprehensible.”

Defending Netanyahu’s heavily criticized comment that a two-state solution is not likely to happen soon  Boehner said, “Well, he doesn’t have a partner. How do you have a two-state solution when you don’t have a partner in that solution, when you don’t have a partner for peace, when you’ve got a — when the other state is vowing to wipe you off the face of the earth?”

Boehner added, “I think the animosity exhibited by our administration toward the prime minister of Israel is reprehensible and I think that the pressure that they’ve put on him over the last four or five years have frankly pushed him to the point where he had to speak up.”

“I don’t blame him at all for speaking up,” the speaker continued.
