Boehner: The Animosity Exhibited By This Administration Toward Netanyahu Is 'Reprehensible'

 These questions from CNN's Dana Bash sound like they came directly from the Obama White House

Dana Bash to Boehner:
-Can you blame the White House for not believing Netanyahu?
-A lot of people blame you for the deep rift between Israel and the United States

House Speaker John Boehner said his upcoming trip to Israel is no "victory lap" to celebrate Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's re-election -- and that it was planned months ago, before the Israeli election.

The Ohio Republican will travel to Israel this week, while Congress is on recess. He said his plans were made before the rift between Netanyahu and President Barack Obama over how to deal with Iran and Palestine burst into the open

Boehner defended Netanyahu from criticism from the Obama White House.

"I think the animosity exhibited by our administration toward the prime minister of Israel is reprehensible," Boehner said. "And I think that the pressure that they've put on him over the last four or five years have frankly pushed him to the point where he had to speak up."
