Boehner on Fox News Sunday

House Speaker John Boehner admitted on “Fox News Sunday” that he invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to a joint session of Congress on March 3 without first consulting with the White House, Bloomberg reported.

Boehner said Netanyahu’s message is important, at a time when the Obama administration is working on an agreement with Iran over its nuclear program.

Netanyahu opposes the very framework of the talks.

“We’re trying to strengthen the president’s hand in these negotiations, ” Boehner said.

The speaker was critical of President Obama on several other issues, including his plan for defeating the Islamic insurgency in the MIddle East.

On Wednesday, the president sent Congress a draft authorization to fight ISIS while keeping American forces away from an “enduring offensive ground combat operations.”

Boehner said “the president is asking for less authority than he has today under previous authorizations, ” Boehner said. “I don’t think that’s smart.”
