Obama Does Have One More Election to Win; Staff Working to Defeat Bibi
Citing the proximity to the Israeli elections, President Obama has refused to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanhayu in March. The White House said it is policy to avoid the perception of influencing a foreign election. The President also said at the State of the Union that he has no more campaigns to run.
Upon closer look, it appears President Obama is inserting himself into another campaign. Five American Campaign experts, including Obama’s national field director, Jeremy Bird, are in Israel working to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu in the upcoming elections. Israeli journalist Caroline Glick posted about this on her Facebook page.

Haaretz reporter Roi Arad revealed in an article in the Hebrew edition
today that the foreign funded organization, “One Voice”, is bankrolling the
V-2015 campaign to defeat Binyamin Netanyahu’s national camp in the March
2015 Knesset Elections.
One indication of the generous financing is that it has now flown in a team
of five American campaign experts (including Jeremy Bird, the Obama
campaign’s national field director) who will run the campaign out of offices
taking up the ground floor of a Tel Aviv office building.
V-2015 is careful not to support a specific party – rather “just not Bibi”.
As such, the foreign funds pouring into the campaign are not subject to
Israel’s campaign finance laws.
President Obama has made some significant foreign policy errors in the past month. He failed to attend the rally in Paris following the terrorist attacks, he refuses to meet with Netanyahu, he skipped attending the Auschwitz’s 70th Anniversary of Liberation Ceremony, and now his campaign staff is in Israeli working to defeat the Prime Minister.
Is this how you treat your allies?
