What is wrong with the Republican Party – ‘GOP Senators Attack Obama, Praise Egyptian President In Statement On Gaza Ceasefire’
When you praise foreign leaders but condem our President for doing the same thing.
‘Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Egyptian Prime Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr today announced a ceasefire between Hamas and Israel, ending eight days of violence that resulted in nearly 150 dead and more wounded’.
‘President Obama dispatched Clinton to the region yesterday and the nation’s top diplomat traveled to Jerusalem and Cairo today to help facilitate the deal’.
‘But in a statement on the Gaza ceasefire today, Sens. John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) — one day after intelligence officials debunked their attacks on the Obama administration over Benghazi — didn’t have any kind words for the president and his team’.
‘In fact, the new “Three Amigos” attacked Obama, saying there needs to be “smarter American leadership” in the Middle East’.
‘Yet the three Republicans did have praise for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi’:
“We commend Prime Minister Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders for the role they played in reaching today’s ceasefire”.
“We also are encouraged by the responsible leadership role played by the President of Egypt and his government. President Morsi deserves credit for successfully bringing an end to the violence and preventing further loss of life on both sides”.
