Bibi's Business

I don't understand why people are so upset about Netanyahu's visit to address congress this Tuesday. He's been to this country and addressed congress many times before.Take for instance, this occasion in 2002, before the House Committee on Oversight and Government reform.
Yeah, about those nuclear weapons Saddam Hussein had...
I don't know if maybe it's time for a new war now that old ones have grown stale. Maybe he's got even more information about Iran's nuclear program, and the time is right to share his inside information again. Maybe he just wants to visit and pick out some new military toys since Israel "is the largest cumulative recipient of military spending by the U.S. $30 billion of US foreign aid, of which nearly 75% was used to purchase U.S. defense equipment from American companies". So we pay Israel to pay us for weapons we make and ship there. Israel–United States military relations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
$30 billion. I wonder what we could do with $30 billion in the U.S. to upgrade roads and schools? I also
wonder what Congressman and Senators have been lobbied for a piece of the Israel pie, like Northrup Grumman? Turns out John Boehner has accepted donations from the top four largest arms makers. Lockheed Martin and Boeing, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman.  Buoyed by Defense Sector Cash, Boehner Again Takes House Speaker's Gavel
Money is the name of the game in Washington D.C., while I think Boehner thought it was funny to invite Netanyahu to address congress and side step the white house, it's just business to him.
Just two weeks before elections in Israel and Netanyahu has had some serious competition regarding Israels opposition campaign donations which U.S. billionaire S. Daniel Abraham, founder of Slim-Fast Foods Co. is financing. In case you were wondering, Israel is up for sale too! "Almost all of the 1.26 million shekels ($320,098) Netanyahu received for his Likud leadership race in December came from U.S. contributors." Israelis Cry Foul on U.S. Cash Influencing Their Election - Bloomberg Business It's remarkable to run for office and you don't have to spend a dime of your own money and it's not even coming from people in your own country. All the free publicity before Israel's elections can only be a win-win for Bibi.
I still can't get over this guys arrogance, when asked a question he responds with this;
Dude, you are seriously a freak. Watch it here. ▶ Why Did Boehner Make This Awkward Kiss Face at a Reporter? - YouTube
