Somebody in the White House staff crossed the line
from simple disagreement into serious hatred:
After learning that the unnamed official was quoted calling Netanyahu ‘chickens**’ in The Atlantic, Boehner had some choice words for President Barack Obama and his administration.
‘Over the last several months, I have watched the administration insult ally after ally,’ Boehner said in a lengthy and tersely-worded statement. ‘He (President Barack Obama) either condones the profanity and disrespect used by the most senior members of his administration or he does not. It is time for him to get his house in order and tell the people that can’t muster professionalism that it is time to move on.’
In The Atlantic piece, the unnamed senior official groused about Netanyahu’s guts, or lack thereof.
‘The one thing about ‘Bibi, he’s a chickens**t,’ the official is quoted as saying. ‘The good thing about Netanyahu is that he’s scared to launch wars. The bad thing about him is that he won’t do anything to reach an accommodation with the Palestinians or with the Sunni Arab states.’
Oh, what nonsense. It makes no difference what Netanyahu does or doesn't, they have no respect for him and are perfectly fine with what the other side does. The New York Daily News
America’s relationship with its sole steadfast ally in the Middle East — and the only functioning democracy in the disintegrating, hyper-violent region — has disgracefully hit rock bottom under President Obama’s leadership.
The U.S. attitude toward Israel is so bitter that a senior White House official described Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “a chickenshit” in an interview with a prominent commentator on Israeli-Palestinian affairs.
So much for Obama’s oft-stated pledge to Israelis that he has the Jewish state’s back. [...]
Lest you think that the “chickenshit” comment was an exception rather than the rule in Obamaworld, Atlantic magazine journalist Jeffrey Goldberg recounted a list of pejorative descriptions of Netanyahu that he had heard over the years: “recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous and ‘Aspergery.’”
Even if those don't count as profanity per se, they're still very degrading words used by various politicians with little self-esteem, and prove the political scene is in serious need of repairs, not to mention a need to wean themselves off of politics in certain senses.
