Quickies: The Leader Of The Free World

     ...it appears has had enough of the mistreatment he’s received from Barack Hussein Obama:

     Washington (CNN)The White House said Monday it was "surprised" to learn through press reports that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had declined an invitation to meet President Barack Obama later this month in Washington.

     An aide to Obama said that Netanyahu's office had requested a sit-down between the two leaders on March 17 or 18, and that the White House responded two weeks ago offering March 18 as a meeting date. That's just ahead of Obama's planned trip to Cuba.

     "We were looking forward to hosting the bilateral meeting, and we were surprised to first learn via media reports that the Prime Minister, rather than accept our invitation, opted to cancel his visit," said National Security Council spokesman Ned Price. "Reports that we were not able to accommodate the Prime Minister's schedule are false."

     This might be unexpected even by conservatives who smarted for Netanyahu when Obama left him to wait in a White House anteroom while the Obamas had dinner. Israel does benefit greatly from access to American arms and foreign aid. Nevertheless, it’s refreshing to see someone of stature smash back Obama’s service of contempt. Perhaps the next Administration will treat Israel and its prime minister with more respect.

     I admit to borrowing the title of this post from Bill Whittle. It seemed both ironic and appropriate. Here’s the video at issue:

I've spent entire afternoons (and the past hour) watching Bill Whittle's "Afterburner" and "Firewall" videos (as well as videos of his speeches.)

I've often fanasized how much of a difference it might make if high school history/government classes included just one daily Whittle video into their curricula.

In High School we went through USA History and principles very well. But that probably changed after I left. We had to go through the original documents of many parts of USA history. It was probably the most challenging class I ever took. In any case I gained a great appreciation of the the USA is and what made it what it is. Seeing it crumble and its founding principles stomped on by teh government has been traumatizing.
