Yes. Yes he did. Just after his arrival in Israel, Obama told Bibi Netanyahu how glad he was to be in Israel … because no Congress.

Charm offensive ovah!

Away from Congress and livin’ the dream?

Update via @einfal:

  • Tangchung

    Obama does a dinner and a lunch with couple members of congress last week for the first time and he needs a vacation? Spare me…

    • CatHerder

      Not him, it’s US that needs the vacation.

    • Brett McMicken

      the next thing he was heard to say was “um, where’s the golf course?”

    • Brett McMicken

      he’s making progress…..last we heard he could do all of that by phone from the golf course

  • Bill Board

    What an amazingly stupid thing to say.

    • David

      OBlamer has a history of amazingly stupid.

  • Brett McMicken

    “congress” must be code for “michelle”

  • CitizenEgg

    Brings to mind another definition of the word congress and yes, that does suggest he’s happy for a break from Michelle. #PagingReggieLove

  • Steve_J

    Why do I think Obama is going to be schooled by Netanyahu, again?

  • Spatial Awareness

    And we are glad you’re not on US soil….. Now if we could only keep it that way. >:^[

      Isn’t Biden still out of the US as well? Good days, my friends. Good days. Enjoy them while you can.

  • gracepmc

    And so he brings the very charming, non partisan Debbie Wasserman Schultz with him./sarc/

    • 3seven77

      That’s like bringing along an annoying little dog that pees on everybody’s shoes.

  • waltermitty2012

    Obama is giving away free phones to charm the Israelis.

  • Joseph A White

    “Away from congress”??? He hasn’t spent 5 minutes with Congress in over 4 years. Lying crapweasel.

  • Lady 12

    When is he ever with congress, no matter what country he’s in?!

  • brendawatkins

    Step down Obama, problem solved, and everybody’s happy… EVERYBODY!!

  • ★♥ Harriet Baldwin

    Do they have a “Man’s Country” in Israel?

      Apparently, Jerusalem has hosted ten gay pride parades, with as much security as participants. Had Charlie McCarthy planned his visit for the summer, he could have been this year’s Grand Marshal.

  • Stupid Republic

    I’m glad our President has such respect for the concept of three, CO-EQUAL branches of government.


  • Kevin Scott

    Yeah, those 30 minutes he has spent with Congress must have been grueling.

    • David

      This is in the running for best post of the day . . . very good.

  • $23629333

    I have a mental image of Charlie McCarthy with a fake mustache and mom jeans, and having a “gay old time.”*

    Some great leadership, unifying skills you’ve got there, Jugears. About as seemly as a member of Congress going abroad and saying it’s good to get away from the President, or the Supreme Court.
    Heck, why not just be honest and say it’s good to get away from the American people.

  • David

    It’s good that OBlamer gets away from America. Now stay out.

  • Judy B

    America is safer when he’s “away” from Congress,
