A tale of two leaders: Netanyahu shows class; Pelosi acts like reality TV star

The National Review: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) made her lack of enthusiasm for Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech apparent throughout the remarks, applauding half-heartedly and then quickly exiting the chamber after the speech, before Netanyahu did.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu turned the other cheek during his joint speech before Congress on March 3, praising President Obama even while the White House snubs him and seeks to discredit his stance on Iranian nuclear negotiations. “We appreciate all that President Obama has done for Israel,” he said. “Some of it is widely known . . . Some of what the president has done for Israel is less well-known.”
I applaud Netanyahu for showing class in the way he spoke about President Obama, who has acted like a child in dealing with Israel, our most important ally in the Middle East. Netanyahu took the high road. Pelosi acted like a spoiled brat.
