Fox News strategic analyst Ralph Peters on Wednesday accused President Barack Obama and Democratic lawmakers of acting like “bitchy high school girls” because they did not agree with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress.
“I thought it was pretty damn sad the American people have to hear the truth from the prime minister of Israel about Islamist fanaticism,” Peters told Fox News host Martha MacCallum. “And our own president won’t even call Islamist terrorism, Islamist terror.”
“There is no question, the vituperative, vicious Democratic reaction to that speech was because Netanyahu told the truth and Obama has not,” he continued. “Netanyahu called them out.”
According to Peters, the president had not “leveled” with the American people about why he was negotiating to end Iran’s nuclear weapons program.
“I thought Netanyahu’s speech was necessary, it was masterful, it was cogent, it was honest, it was inspiring,” he insisted.
“And the Democrats in response — including the president — acted like snitty, bitchy high school girls,” Peters snarled.
“Their reaction was quite strong,” MacCallum replied. “And it does raise a question of why. You know, if you feel so strongly as the administration does that a deal is necessary — they feel the deal they are working on is going to make the world a safer place. But if Benjamin Netanyahu wants to come and speak his mind as well in front of Congress as he did yesterday, what do they have to fear in that?”
“Because liars fear the truth,” Peters declared. “They have already accepted that Iran will get nuclear weapons, they just want a decent interval so they can’t get blamed.”
