    Binyamin Netanyahu humiliated after Barack Obama 'dumped him for dinner'

    For a head of government to visit the White House and not pose for photographers is rare. For a key ally to be left to his own devices while the President withdraws to have dinner in private was, until this week, unheard of. Yet that is how Binyamin Netanyahu was treated by President Obama on Tuesday night, according to Israeli reports on a trip viewed in Jerusalem as a humiliation.

    After failing to extract a written promise of concessions on settlements, Mr Obama walked out of his meeting with Mr Netanyahu but invited him to stay at the White House, consult with advisers and “let me know if there is anything new”, a US congressman, who spoke to the Prime Minister, said.

    So the O isn't as smooth in grace and courtesy as he's pretended to be.

    He's a poor excuse for American leadership in this particular matter.

    He's been an actor all along and puts on a show. This is showing his true disposition.

    How does he expect to be received by our enemies at the peace talks he insists we should have? when he doesn't even know how to treat a friend? Fat chance at diplomacy..... respect and honor your enemies..... for they are rewarded by your differring to them and encouraged to keep it so.... but show no grace to your friends as they might riciprocrate in warm return and embrass you before your enemies by their warm and trusting regard.

    OTOH, if a 'friend' (the zero) shows himself to be unworthy of trust among his 'friends'..... by what bridge does he expect to gain the trust of another who is truely an enemy?

    He's like a child. When he doesn't get his way, he is mean , petty, and vindictive.
    It's all part of his pathological narcissistic personality.

    A truly great statesman.

    BTW He has treated Gordon Brown in much the same way. More than once.

    The ironic thing is that one of the things Mao-Bama campaigned on was that Bush angered and alienated all of our allies and how it was up to him to repair our relationships with them.

    So what's the first thing he does? Repeatedly insult the Queen and PM of England, then the French, and now this.

    Gotta love all that "change".

    You all put the cart before the horse. If the French, Brits, and the US had minded our own business a century ago there would be no problem as it now exists.

    You don't have omeone over for dinner thenleave letting them alone while you go eat elsewhere telling them to let you know if they need anything. This would be considered very rude and insulting if someone did it to anyone of us.

    as usual, off topic.

    Yes, ironic that we the people got what we elected! Now we pay.

    There were King Obama supporters in here before and during the election.
    Where are they now that he has made such a mess of things?
