The clamor surrounding Obama’s interviewwith Jeffrey Goldberg continues. House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), took the "constant sore" remarks and ran with it late yesterday, issuing this statement, per ABCnews.
‘Israel is a critical American ally and a beacon of democracy in the Middle East, not a ‘constant sore’ as Barack Obama claims,’ Boehner said. ‘Obama’s latest remark, and his commitment to ‘opening a dialogue’ with sponsors of terrorism, echoes past statements by Jimmy Carter who once called Israel an ‘apartheid state.’’
As ABC points out, this doesn’t quite mesh with the interview since Obama directly dismisses Carter’s "apartheid" statement.
Boehner’s remarks angered Golberg, who this morning responded on his blogblasting the minority leader. Golberg says that Boehner must have simply not read the entire interview, since "Obama expressed – in twelve different ways – his support for Israel to me." He adds these choice words:
Boehner’s statement [is] mendacious, duplicitous, gross, and comically refutable. So Mr. Boehner, do the right thing, and correct the record. I’ll be happy to post the correction right here.
Strong words, to be sure. Don’t count on Boehner responding to this, but it will be interesting to see how this continues to play out. Stay tuned.
