Are you wondering how the average American responded to Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu’s epic speech in Congress yesterday? Well, wonder no more. I’ve got the answer. We asked our Facebook followers yesterday what they thought of the speech:
The reactions came in fast and they were unanimous:
While rightfully praising Netanyahu, many readers also had a thing or two to say about President Obama and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who had the nerve to turn her back on the prime minister when he said that, if necessary, his country will stand alone.
No wonder Obama was angry with Netanyahu: he hasn’t had a hit speech like that since 2008, when he ran for president and tens of millions of voters actually thought he could deliver “change we can believe in.” The only “hope and change” we see now comes — Facebook users said — from Israel’s prime minister, a military and political hero who fears no one, and who serves his country with great honor.
The contrast with President Obama couldn’t be clearer. Facebook sleeps when he gives a speech but lights up at the moment Netanyahu addresses the nation — and the rest of the world. Go Bibi!
