Obama was not too pleased that Netanyahu rejected his radical plan right to his face. He looked disgusted.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected Barack Obama’s pro-Hamas Mideast plan today right to his face. Reuters reported:
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday he was prepared to make compromises to peace but he rejected President Barack Obama’s proposal that Israel return to its 1967 borders.
Obama and Netanyahu met at the White House a day after the U.S. president endorsed a longstanding Palestinian demand on the borders for their future state.
In remarks to reporters in the Oval Office, Obama said he had reiterated the principles he had laid out on Thursday. Both men acknowledged differences between their positions. Obama could care less about the Israelis. After all, they’re an ally.
Netanyahu gave our far left president a history lesson. The part where he lectured Obama on Hamas, the Palestinian version on Al-Qaeda, was good too.
That was one incredible speech. Obama looked like a complete buffoon.
