And by hissy fit, I mean full blown tantrum.
From BizPac Review.
The White House got its nose bent out of shape when House Speaker John Boehner announced at his weekly news briefing Wednesday that he asked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress without first consulting Obama.
Aren’t Congress and the White House co-equal branches of government?
Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters that Netanyahu will be speaking next month “on the grave threats of radical Islam and the threat that Iran poses, to not only the Middle East, but frankly, to the world.”
These are issues that Boehner said the president had “papered over” in his State of the Union address.
The speaker confirmed that the White House had not been consulted beforehand.
“Congress can make this decision on its own,” he said.
He was asked by a CNN reporter whether this wasn’t a deliberate “poke in the eye” to the president.
“I don’t believe I’m poking anyone in the eye,” he replied. “There is a serious threat that exists in the world and the president last night kind of papered over it.”
“Papered over it”? He fucking blew it off. I’m glad Boehner took the initiative to invite Netanyahu. Gawd knows Obama has disrespected America’s only ally in the Middle East for the last six years.
As for not consulting Obama; like when he consulted Congress over the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups, Fast and Furious, the NSA’s violation of the 4th Amendment, ordering the DOJ to hack into the computers and private phone records and personal emails of reporters and media outlets, and granting amnesty for millions of illegals. Not to mention his volume of unlawful and unconstitutional executive orders. That consulting?
Barky doesn’t like the Checks and Balances required by the Constitution, so he simply ignores them. He thinks he can bypass Congress and make his own rules. America’s founders made things really difficult for this petty little tyrant to impose his will. Tsk. Tsk.
Barky’s team has issued a threat; ‘there will be a price to pay’ for Netanyau’s insolence toward Emperor Obama. Like what? More snubbing? This is the same ‘team’ that referred to Netanyahu, a former member of the IDF who was fighting muzzie terrorists while Barky was in little red diapers, as ‘chickenshit’.

Obama will be blowing off Benjamin Netanyahu when the Israeli PM visits Washington in March, because he supposedly doesn’t want to deal with any appearance of political impropriety. John Kerry won’t be meeting with Netanyahu either, citing the same B.S. excuse.
However, Barky does have the time to hook up with this fine example of journalistic excellence. Meet ‘Froot Loops’ Glozell:

The Left doesn’t even have the decency to be embarrassed.
